Firestone Transforce HT Tire Review & Rating

The Firestone Transforce HT 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 helps this model deliver 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.

Transforce HT from Firestone Tires

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 their 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 feature E load ratings for heavy-duty use.

Pros

  • Dry and wet traction is very good 
  • Excellent stability, especially when pulling heavy loads 
  • Ride is smooth and quiet 
  • Above average treadlife 

Cons

  • Would like to see a bit more winter performance 

Overall Thoughts

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. It’s a workhorse of a tire that delivers excellent traction and stability on dry or wet pavement, and a smooth and comfortable ride as well. Cornering grip and all-around stability is very good as well, whether it’s in town or at highway speeds.

The treadlife for this tire is good, which many other drivers have mentioned in reviews as being a real plus. The only real issue you may find with this tire is its traction in deep snow or braking/acceleration on ice and hard-packed snow. It’s not bad, but it’s not great.

Overall, we like this model and consider it to be a very good value for the money. We rank it highly in this class.

In Light snow, Dry and Wet conditions these tires are great. We always get over 50,000 miles on a set.
