BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A or Firestone Destination A/T
 
It is time to replace the tires on my 07 WK 5.7.

I am considering either the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A or Firestone Destination A/T.


Any first hand experience on which tire is superior for on-road driving in all 4 seasons?

Lucky13 I have the Firestone's on my Jeep Wrangler. Mostly highway miles and trips to the beach. I really liked the look of them and aggressiveness of the treads. To my surprise they have held up very well and have performed better than I expected however they are extremely heavy and very noisy at low to mid speeds. I have 30" tires and the tread is pretty aggressive but on smaller sizes tire the tread seems to be less aggressive and geared more toward daily driving. I would buy them again if I had more motor to turn them. So far have been very reliable and have performed well in snow, mud and normal highway driving.

im going rugged terrains next tire, i like the look and they are pretty light in weight. plus their BFG highway all-seasons, so im sure they will wear like iron..

I had the BFGs on my old nissan xterra, put about 60k on them before they were toast, i also off-roaded them alot so that i'm sure contributed to the wear. Nice and quiet on road and great traction off road in just about everything aside from thick goopy mud.

i cant speak for either of the 2 tires, but I will just throw in my experience.. i was looking at both of the tires you were went i lifted my WK and was adding bigger more aggressive tires..

I ended up going with the new coopers. discoverer AT3's.. they ar a 31.6" tire int he size i got. they have an agressive tread style just like the rugged terrrains and destinations but are also just as quiet on the highway as my stock fortera's were. I drive 70 miles during the week highway and they perform great and completely silent and i also take it offroad probably every other weekend into the woods/mud/dirt/gravel.. and they handle it all perfectly and also have been holding up really well.. its only been about 6 months with them but they still look brand new.

Also got all 4 at3's in 31" for $625 mounted and balanced.. may be cheaper than the rugged terrains and the destinations... give em a look.
