I have revo 2s just because there was a mail in rebate that brought them to the same price as the destinations. Hard for me to rate tires since I don't have much experience with different at's but so far they're good. Only seen road driving so far.

Snow they're awesome. Haven't seen very deep stuff yet but gets through 6" easily and grabs good on packed roads.

It seems they're hit or miss on mileage though. Some people get 30k others get 60k. That would be what would shy me away.

Any reason you're only deciding between the 2? Search around here and there's many more good tires in the same price range.

I've had really good luck with bridgestone and firestone's before thats why I want either one or the other. Its not so much price as to maybe which one that looks better or rides better.

Well mine are much quieter than the forteras that were on it when I bought it. That could change as they wear, but no signs yet.

I think the revo2 tread design has a unique look, but neither tire have the aggressive look you'd get from a duratrac (for example). Personally I have my revo2s white-out and like the font better than the destinations, but that may be getting picky on my part.

I have had both. Revo's look better. But in regards to performance the Destinations are much better.

I like them both. I have yet to have the Revo2. I have and continue to roll on the original Revo's. The Revo's are superior to the destinations IMHO. I have had 4 sets now.

i have revo 2. they are noisier than stock but not bad as long as kept rotated. The grip is far better than stock forteras. Like many review on tirerack, there is a nasty mpg penalty (-2mpg) for using them. I've got 14,000 on mine and it looks like I'll see 50k out of them. However for what they cost and the mpg penalty, I think there are probably better options out there. My next tires will either be Firestones or BFGs.

I've had the Destination AT's for about 25,000 miles. Very happy with them so far. Never had the Revos so I can't compare but, the Firestones are wearing nicely, handle wet roads very well, and were unstoppable in the all the snow we had last winter. If I went off road more I might go with something a little more aggressive but, for a daily driver I would definately puirchase the Firestones again.

it really sounds like the destination AT is a good tire. We're on our second set of Destination LE's on the wifey's street-only MDX and they are a Fantastic tire, especially considering the price. Stiff sidewalls, long life, good grip wet or dry. It's basically last-year's Bridgestone Dueler HL, but at a fraction of the price.

I work for firestone, i just took a set of revo 2's off and sold them because they suck in mud and dont last. Dont suggest them. The destination at is a far superior tire.

I had Destination A/Ts on a previous Isuzu Trooper. They worked will for every thing I did, snow, unpaved roads, packed dirt, light mud.

I replaced Revo 2's with destination ATs on my Liberty. The revo 2 performed well, but I really disliked the road noise. The best analogy for the sound is like the sound of high wind in a barn

My revo 2's on the durango were remarkably quiet. I couldn't hear them at all...I had less than 10k miles on them so I can't talk about their life

It still sounds like a toss up in less price is a factor... O well... Would anyone agree that the Firestone At is like a BFG?
