Firestone Destination AT review

Everyone wants to find a new tire that has the best feature yet is affordable. But finding one isn’t always that easy. In this Firestone Destination AT review, we will show you the product’s specific strengths as well as our real experience.

First off, we all have at least once heard about “Firestone” The company was founded in 1900 and has become one of the best-known tire brands ever since. 

Firestone claimed to provide the best quality and service necessary to win every race, no matter where it may take place. Their knowledge allows them to develop tires for any customer needs, including all-season, performance, touring, passenger, etc.

Firestone tires are economical, even for light/medium trucks and SUVs. Although the tire company produces a wide range of tires, a model that stands out is the Firestone Destination AT.

Firestone Destination A/T Tire Review

The AT in its name stands for “All-Terrain.” That means the Firestone Destination AT is designed for truck and SUVs drivers who desire to travel where the road takes them.

The Destination AT provides perfect traction for good performance on different terrains. It also has a tough appearance to match its skills on the rolling road.

Thanks to Firestone’s signature tread design, the Destination AT can adapt to any kind of weather. It also gives you extra confidence in handling and braking at high speed, whether driving in heavy rains or snowy roads. 

Its off-shoulder tread block design and spiral wrap add better grip in mud or snow and improve steer response. However, if you are looking for something that can handle deep, heavy snow, Destination AT might not be the best option.

The Destination AT tread compound features LL Carbon to help improve tread wear and resist cracking, chipping, and tearing. 

The best part is this model has 5° Noise Reduction Technology. It will minimize any noise and give you a comfortable, quiet ride. At a reasonable price, The Destination AT performance is almost flawless with smooth-running, crisp handling, and excellent response.

Pros & Cons

Pros
  • Best traction and grip for all-terrain
  • Great handling and braking
  • Excellent steer response
  • Little to no noise
  • Expanded treadlife
Cons
  • Can’t handle deep, heavy snow

Tire Drive Test

For all-terrain light/medium trucks and SUVs tires, we can say that the Firestone Destination AT is one of the best tires that we have ever tried.

First of all, at a reasonable price, the Destination AT performance is outstanding. It provides excellent traction and grip, whether we are driving in dry or wet conditions. However, we found it didn’t work very well with deep, heavy snow.

The unique tread design gives extra confidence when blasting at high speed. The Firestone Destination AT is also very responsive compared with other models we have tried with our trucks before.

What we love the most about the Destination AT is there was almost no noise when we were driving on the road. It gave us comfortable and smooth rides on different terrains. 

To wrap up our Firestone Destination AT reviews, we would say that this model is definitely worth considering. The Firestone Destination AT has all the best features you need at a reasonable price.

    My 2nd set. These tires are great offroad, in sand and snow. They are suitable for A/T tires on wet pavement. My first set was replaced around 35-40%. After the 45% mark, you can see a significant improvement in performance. My first set lasted me for about five years. I think I put 40k miles on them.

    These tires are great! These tires have great tread depth, and they look amazing! The 33’s were a replacement for my 31’s. I found the larger tires to be quieter. My 4X4 handles and drives like a car thanks to the excellent traction on both wet and dry roads. We are very happy!

    These tires are great until they reach 40k miles. They can handle wet and dry well, are quiet due to the aggressive tread pattern, as well as working great in snow. Alignment issues mean that I get about 40k per set. You can see that I love them all. I’m currently on my fifth set. All were mounted on 1st-gen Tundras.

    These tires were delivered right before Hurricane Irma. Needless to say, they proved invaluable during the evacuation. I was using Firestone Destination LE street tires, and I wanted to change to A/T. These tires fit my needs perfectly. They are not too aggressive, so they don’t lower my MPG. These tires are slightly firmer than the LE’s, but they still feel great and work well. These tires have never caused me any problems and they are great for off-roading. These tires are highly recommended.
