Firestone Destination A/T Tire Review & Rating

The Firestone Destination A/T is engineered to deliver a combination of off-road performance on all types of terrain, along with year round traction and comfort on-road. Designed for drivers of trucks, SUV’s and vans, the A/T sports rugged good looks to match its capabilities on the road.

A tough tread compound includes L.L. Carbon black to enhance wet traction, while also increasing overall treadwear. This more rugged compound also provides better resistance to cuts and abrasions you often find off road. The tire’s continuous center rib increases steering response and provides better handling on dry pavement, while the wider circumferential grooves and multiple sipes deliver wet handling performance and reduce the risk of hydroplaning.

Destination AT from Firestone Tires

An off shoulder tread block design increases traction on all types of terrain, including mud, while also providing enabling improved performance in deep snow and ice. Interlocking tread blocks and notches further enhance mud traction, which is a plus for this tire.

Beyond driving performance, the Destination AT rides smooth and comfortable, and without all the road noise you often find on many AT tires. This is due in part to the optimized tread design and 5 degree noise reduction technology used in the tire. O-bead construction adds to ride comfort as well.

Inside the tire you will find two high-tensile steel belts to go along with a polyester cord body and Firestone’s UNI-T construction. The result is added strength and durability, as well as increased ride comfort. Sizes are available from 14-20 inches, and the tread is guaranteed for 5-years or 50,000 miles.

Pros

  • Some of the best on and off-road traction in class 
  • Outstanding steering response 
  • Ride is comfortable and road noise is nearly non-existent 
  • Long lasting treadlife 

Cons

  • Deeper snow traction could be better

Overall Thoughts

For on and off road performance with your truck or SUV, the Destination A/T is one of the better tires available today. We like this tire for a variety of reasons. Traction and handling on almost any surface is outstanding. Steering response and feel are excellent. If you don’t believe us you can read the same thing on hundreds of driver reviews on this model. The tire simply stands with the top tires in this class in nearly every category.

The only real area where you may find issues is this tire’s grip in deeper amounts of snow. Light to moderate is no problem, but when it really starts piling up it seems the tires struggle a bit. We’ve heard this from more than a few drivers. Ride comfort exceeds expectations, while outside road noise is minimal. It gives you the feeling of riding on a highway touring tire at times. Tread life is pretty good, but we could see it being improved on just a bit. That said, Firestone does back it up with a 50K mile warranty.

Overall, if we were choosing an A/T tire for our own personal truck or SUV, this would be one of our top choices.

I am considering the Firestone Destination AT’s or the Kumho Road Venture AT51 for my 2007 Commander/Jeep.
Kumho is new to me but seems like a comparably performing tire to the Firestone. My big concern is steering response and overall handling on the highway and a low noise level….the $200 cost differential leans me towards the Kumho’s but also do not want to be disappointed either….any further information or advise you can provide other than your great reviews is appreciated…..also I read in one review that the Kumhos get “flat spots” from sitting only a couple of hours ….is that even possible with today’s tire technology?….any Kumho users of the AT51 that have feedback is also appreciated.
