All these tire threads..........

.......and I haven't seen anyone mention anything about the Firestone Destination MT's. I was just wondering if there is a reason for that. I just picked up a set of these in 33x12.50x15. Only had them on for a week now but I'm completely happy with them. No offroad adventures yet as there isn't too many spots around here for that, but I should be able to find out how they'll do in some of the fields our family has.

On a side note, now I have more of a reason to get the 1.25 BL.

They have that size?!?! I thought the largest Pep Boys sold them in was 285/75/16... You got them at Pep Boys? Or no? Pep Boys has the buy 3 get one free, so I was considering those tires when my are worn..

It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top.

I can't speak from personal experience, but a close friend of mine has been running these for about a year now. They're decent off-road, aren't too loud on the road, and seem to be wearing REALLY well.

I wouldn't have a problem buying them myself.

Yea I've heard for the buy3get1 deal (Pep Boys used to do this, not sure if they still do) they are a great choice. Though sizes are very limited.

Nope. I found them on craigslist about 50 miles away. Guy lost his job and had to come up with some money, he only put 400 miles on them. Paid $600 for all five, even came with some black steelies I'll be reselling.

I have 31x10.5s and love em. They have about 40k on them with some moderate wheeling. Still enough tread left to get me another year or so. They are great offroad. Clear mud and snow very well. I have no complaints with these tires. When I lift I will go with a set of 33s.

I started out with nothing and still have most of it left.

Im getting tired of thinking...guess I'll do some wishful drinking.

The Firestone Destination MT is the highest-rated offroad tire on tirerack.com. I'm definitely thinking about a set of these when I upgrade to 33" earlier next year. Right now I'm running a set of Bridgestone Deulers and I couldn't be happier with them as A/T tires. Firestone/Bridgestone makes a good product.

It's not enough to bash in heads, you've got to bash in minds.

They're a great tire, I've ran them, VERY nice. If they had the sizes I need I would run them again.

I have been happy with my Coopers, but I think that they are starting to wear very quickly. I have had them for 2 years (13k-14k miles) and they look like they are more than half worn. I need to measure to see. They still seem to pull well off road, but I am worried that I will have to replace them within the next year, whether I want to or not. This may not be a problem since I am looking to replace them by next summer with some 33", but I will not likely get these tires again if they wear down that quickly. I will probably look at the KM2s. I looked at the Firestones before and may look at them again, but I did read a few places where people were having problems with chunks of the lugs breaking off and I didn't want to take that chance before. I will probably try to do some more reading before I make the decision again, though.
