Firestone Transforce HT Tire
Review & Rating
The Transforce HT from Firestone is the company's all-season commercial light
truck tire that is built to deliver dependable traction and handling to go with a comfortable ride and longer
treadlife. Designed for drivers of pickups, vans, and commercial vehicles, the HT is one of the more popular
commercial tires on the market.
A tough all-season tread compound features L.L. Carbon for a longer lasting
treadlife and enhanced year-round traction. The computerized symmetric tread pattern and continuous center rib
delivers more responsive steering and increased stability at higher speeds. The tires notched shoulders and
intermediate tread blocks provide added cornering performance on dry or wet pavement.
Four wide circumferential grooves channel away water and increase traction on wet
road surfaces. Multiple sipes around the tire create biting edges for enhanced performance in light snow. Firestone
utilizes 5 degree noise reduction technology that eliminates most of the road noise and gives this tire a better
overall ride quality.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are nylon reinforced for added
strength and durability. A polyester cord body further improves ride comfort. Sizes are available from 15-18
inches, and include an E load range for heavy-duty use.
Dry and wet traction is very good
Excellent stability, especially when pulling heavy
Ride is smooth and quiet
Above average treadlife
Would like to see a bit more winter performance
When it comes to getting a tire for pulling trailers, boats or other heavier loads
on the highway, the Transforce HT is a solid choice. You'll find excellent traction and stability on dry or wet
pavement, and a smooth and comfortable ride as well.
The treadlife for this tire is good, which many other drivers have mentioned as
being a real plus. The one area we would like to see just a bit more performance in would be winter handling. It's
not bad, but it's not great. Overall, this is very good tire that ranks highly in this class.
