... my NEW Firestone Destination's ...

bought Firestone Destination 265/75 16's a few days ago, thanks to a member on here. saw his pics (dont remember who it was, but he had before and after pics and it was all black) and like what i saw so i went ahead and got new shoes. better ride than the stock tires and pretty good price for some A/T's. heres a quick pic of the tires.....

I'm getting these put on Sunday. What stock tires did you have? Are these quieter?

Thanks,
Ron

i had the stock Dunlop Grand Trek 245/75's. they're both quiet but my new Firestone's definitely ride smoother than the old stocks.

I have the same on my truck, except i have the white facing out, my next set wont though

They have worked well for me so far, they have done well for the very limited amount of offroading that i do, but they did great in the snow last winter. Hopefully one of these days i will be able to go wheeling with it

I just got the same tires (except mine are 245) about a month ago. It snowed last week and they did great! I'm very happy with them. I saw about a 1-2 mpg decrease, but overall I think it's worth it for the added traction in the snow.

Decrease in mpg might be contributed to the winter blend of gas that should or is available now at the pump.

OP, nice tires!
