Firestone 33X12.5R15 C

"The Destination M/T is an Off-Road Maximum Traction tire developed to meet the needs of pickup truck and sport utility vehicle drivers who desire the looks and performance associated with rugged off-road driving. The Destination M/T is the first Firestone light truck tire to use UNI-T technology to combine off-road traction with enhanced on-road capabilities. UNI-T is a combination of technologies that merge a comprehensive design method with innovative manufacturing features to enhance tire comfort, performance and wear.

The Destination M/T features a Long Link Carbon (a special form of molecular re-engineered carbon black) enhanced tread compound to improve wet performance and wear on the road while maintaining cut, tear and abrasion resistance off the road. The tread compound is molded into a symmetric tread design comprised of deep lugs and an over-the-shoulder tread/lug design that features alternating width shoulder lugs with a low 23-degree attack angle to provide the biting edges necessary to dig down, as well as, claw at the sides of ruts to generate pulling power. Rim Guard Off-Road Protector Ribs molded on the sidewalls help deflect off-road debris from between the tire bead and rim area, keeping the lower sidewall stiffer and allowing the bead to fit tighter to the rim. On the inside, the Destination M/T combines twin, high-tensile steel cord belts reinforced by a spirally wrapped nylon cap ply with Firestone's Dura-Loc 3.0 (a 3-ply polyester cord body) to enhance durability and highway stability."

Great all around tire, not very loud, soft compound for street, work awesome in wet conditions, mud, sand, rock, and dunes. air down to about 15 psi and you'll go anywhere. I'm very happy with them. beat out the BFG's hand down

I had these tires in the 285 flavor and loved their performance in all conditions. That was enough to warrant a great rating. However, my tires began tearing lugs off on Michigan trails, which are not very rocky, at about 12psi. Needless to say, I Pro-Rated them for a set of Nitto Mud Grapplers.

Overall, great tire, but I want a better made tire.

Ran these tires in Texas and Moab and did very well. Great street manners and good offroad manners as well. Once you start getting after it on the trails the lugs can tear off. I was told they would not make any bigger than a 33 due to demand not being there for larger sizes.

An excellent overall tire, on par with the Trxus MT. In my opinion superior as an all around tire to both the BFG MT and Goodyear MT/R.

This tire is a great flotation tire and tends to stay on top of deep snow and mud, expecially when aired down. The sidewalls are rock solid and they balance very well.

The only negatives are that the tires don't come siped (but that can be taken care of aftermarket) and that they don't come in taller sizes.

I ran a set of 33x12.50x15's on my 2006 TJ, I was very happy with the performance on and off road, They work well in both mud and rocks. Very quiet for such an aggresive tread, Best M/T tire I've ever had for wet pavement traction. I would still be running them if I didn't switch to 35's

I'm running 32x11.5x15 Widetrack Baja A/Ts (a Firestone 'off brand') that I picked up for 50 bucks for the whole set with less than 2k miles on them. Nice ride.

Very cheap. Bought these back in 2008 during the financial collapse so prices were not too high then. They get the job done. City tires.
