These tires have held up well.   We purchased the car new with these firestone tires intact. We traveled  up and down the east coast on  I 95 from New York to Florida several times. We experienced no problems in the  blistering hot weather or the extremely cold weather.  The car was parked out during many NYC snowstorms and we never had to inflate the tires ever.  We had the tires for over three years.  We have driven over 35,000 miles and was told on our last scheduled maintenance check up that we were soon to be in need of new tires.  The treads were wearing out.  We went to Firestone to purchase the replacement tires instead of the car dealership. We experienced wonderful customer service followed by a customer service tire checkup.  We were pleasantly surprised by this service.  I think it's worth it to go to the tire company to buy their brand of tire. Once the tires were replaced I could feel how smooth the ride was. I cannot wait to test the tires out in the snow.  They should handle the same as the previous  tires since they are the same brand. These tires can take snow drifts too.  But I think it's all in the drivers ability.

They'll Keep You From Spinning Your Wheels, For the Most Part

If there is one thing I hate doing, it is buying tires for my car.  I would rather be spending the money on jewelry, but it is something you have to do every few years.

I knew it was about time for me to buy tires for my Jeep Cherokee about eighteen months ago.  The Jeep is 17-years-old, but I plan on keeping it forever since they don't make them anymore.  I have to buy tires that are made specifically for SUVs, which usually means that they are more expensive than regular car tires.  After I noted the size of the tire that was required for my SUV, I began searching online for reviews of the various brands.

One thing that has always bothered me about my car is that the wheels tend to spin when I try starting on wet pavement.  That is the first thing I wanted in a new tire, one that was especially good for driving in the rain.  It did not even bother me if the tires were going to be more expensive.  You don't want to skimp on something as important as this.

After I narrowed it down to a few makes and models, I had to decide on the place where I would purchase them.  Since Tires Plus is in my neighborhood, I thought I would get them there.  I knew they sold the Firestone Destination AT, which I had selected.  Plus, they had a buy-3-get-1-free promotion.  Believe it or not, the store associate tried to talk me into buying cheaper tires.  I was dead set on these, though.

The Destination AT all-terrain tire is made specifically for SUVs and light trucks.  Its Uni-T technology provides improved braking and handling on wet roads.  It also provides a quieter and smoother ride.  The online ratings give the tires a 6 out of 10 on both dry and wet conditions.

I cannot say that these tires are perfect.  After about 12,000 miles of use, I noticed the spinning again while trying to start on a wet road.  It may be something with the car and not just the tires.  Because I am highly aware of this, I always try to take it easy at stop lights.  It might help to get them rotated.

    Lasts for Years

    Comments about Firestone Destination A-T Tires:

    These tires have been on our Isuzu Rodeo ever since we bought the vehicle six months ago. They have a lot of tread on them and have not easily been wearing down yet. I live in Georgia, so the tires have not encountered any snow. I have previously lived in the north during the winter and have driven vehicles with Firestone tires. There are better brands for all-year round tires than Firestone. The tires did have a tendency to lose air slowly during the cold winter months. The tire traction did not help me much when driving in the snow. Otherwise in any other weather condition, including rain, my vehicle held the ground and drove smooth. The tires are very easy to clean and they remain clean for weeks afterwards. When driving, cornering and steering is precise, allowing the car to track very well. I did pay more for these tires than anticipating, but I am believing they will last me at least a decade.

    Good all around tire

    Comments about Firestone Destination A-T Tires:

    I do not have anything negative to say about the Firestone Destination Tires, my Expedition runs great with these tires on it. The large tread blocks on the tires allow for great traction on all surfaces, even heavy rain and snow. I drove with these tires through a winter in northern US and felt confident and safe. I love the unique tread design and how quiet and smooth my car runs with these tires. They are ideal for SUVs and trucks and are the perfect tire for my off road experiences at our farm. While riding in the city or running through our fields, I really enjoy these tires. I would recommend these tires to others who are looking for an overall year long tire. I was able to put about forty thousand miles on these tires before needing to replace them. For the great price that I paid, I think they are well worth the money and I will be interested in buying the same brand again.

    These Tires Are A Rip Off

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Firestone Destination A-T Tires:

    I purchased the Firestone Destination A-T Tires for my pick up truck two years ago ended up replacing them with about 85 percent tread left on them. From the time that the tires were mounted, I wasn't satisfied with them. After riding on them for a day or so I returned to the tire dealership to complain about how rough they seem to ride. The tire shop took them off and did a complete new mount and balance but that didn't seem to help any. TheFirestone Destination A-T Tires do not perform as good in wet weather situations. I found myself to be sliding in the lightest of sprinkles of rain. I definitely would not attempt to drive on these tires in snow or ice. I kept the tires for a few more months to see if they just needed to be "broke in" but still wasn't satisfied. I would never purchase the Firestone Destination A-T Tires again and would definitely not recommend them to anyone else.

    Blew tire on small pothole

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Firestone Destination A-T Tires:

    The tires lasted me two years with no problems. Rain was no problem at all, but they weren't great in winter. The tread was getting lower but it was still fine. I hit a small pothole, not going fast, and the tire blew. I had never seen a tire pop so easily. I will not be buying this type of tire again.

    good riding tires for passenger cars in inclement weather

    By 

    from madison, TN

    Comments about Firestone Destination A-T Tires:

    This tire rides good with very little road noise and has good handling in curves. It rides good with no bumping. It has good traction on wet roads and also in light snow with little hydroplaning. They will last very close to 40,000 miles when you have good front and rear end alignment.

    Firestone Destination A-T All season tires

    By 

    from Saint Petersburg Fl

    Comments about Firestone Destination A-T Tires:

    This is a good all around tire but I don't feel they are great for driving in the snow. They ride quiet but I believe they wear out faster than the rating. At 35 k they are just over half of their life and need replacing. Firestone said they will prorate on the balance which is nice. Living in harsh conditions like the Reno Tahoe area may also play a part in the tires wear.

    Good tires

    Comments about Firestone Destination A-T Tires:

    The tires were fairly new when we bought our Suburban back in June of 2012. They came with the vehicle, and there is about 60% tread left on them. We do live way out in the country and on dirt roads and travel roughly 100 to 200 miles a week. They have been really good tires for us. Better then expected. In the snow and mud they do great, grab and perform well. We haven't had any problems with them nor has they thought of changing brands next set of tires has come to our minds. On the ice they do okay, they do slip even in four wheel drive, but you can feel them trying to grab. We haven't really found any tires that do great on ice. They work as they are suppose too. They did surprise me as how well they do work as they are not my preferred brand of tires. I would most definitely recommend them to my family and friends. I will be purchasing them again when these current ones need to be swapped out.
