Firestone Destination MT

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.

I have had these on for over 8000 miles and am very impressed with them. They wear excellent. Road noise is less then my BFG AT's. The ride is also better then my BFG AT's. Overall I think this is one of the best kept secrets for MT tires that will be used as a DD.

I've got 30000 on a set of these and they've still got enough life for my next trip out to Colorado and NM from east TX. I'll buy another set when I return! They stick like glue and aren't too noisy for mudders.

I have had these tires over a year and love them. The have really nice road holding for a MT and are great offroad. I have had minor casses of chunking though.

Great Tires and price - although I have heard they are now quite pricy - last check at a Firestone store put them at an alarming $250 a tire!

Awesome tire. Took my buddy with me Jeepin at Badlands and he was very impressed. He had an '04 with Mickey Thompson Baja Claws and told me about 3 times that his wouldn't have made through some of the areas we went with mine.

Great tires. Sound good down the road in town and perform great on some backcountry trails. Currently running 31x10.5 - most likely upgrading this summer to 33x12.5

Of course they wear kind of fast, but that is to be expected out of a mud tire. Nice thing is that they wear evenly! Great tires overall, very pleased.
