I have them on my 14. Haven't had them in snow yet, but they are quiet as can be and look great. Hydroplane resistance is excellent as well. They were also inexpensive. I'd buy them again.

Re: Who's using Firestone Destination AT's?

I've had them a yr now. Out of the gate i noticed drag, it idles slower, i have to give it gas to really get it to move, and we have a hemi. Gas mileage is down about 0.8mpg roughly.We have all the 4wd options jeep offers, and these tires with traction control off, and the air susp raised, it plowed through over a foot of snow. Noise seems a tad louder than the michelins.

For the money, their a good tire, I think next round i'm going to try the destination LE 2s. This is on the highway 90% of the time

I have had trucks for the last 20 years. this is my favorite all around tire, ever!
I will be using something different for the jeep, but these are a true all around great tire.

I agree! I drove my buddy's Volvo SUV with a set and was really impressed. The next day I put a set on my 2014 Limited and I am very happy with them.

Re: Who's using Firestone Destination AT's?

Greetings,

I had a set on my old Xterra several years ago. I found they were a very good tire. Winter conditions they were alright. The tire has not been upgraded since it first came out. Otherwise, for the price point and terrain scope of the tire it is recommended.

Their are other AT's out now that are vastly improved in two notable areas; drag and winter conditions. A careful search on this forum will show threads that deal with the 2 categories of AT tires: on/off road & the heavy duty all terrain.

Best for now.
