There are a lot of folks here that run the Firestone Destinations w/ excellent reviews.
The biggest criteria challenges I find is when a general question is ask about what is the best a/t for snow is
1.where do they live,
2.what type of snow, a few flurries, more slush/ice or heavy, large accumalations?
3.what type of driving as in all highway, a mixed bag, class IV types etc.
I purchased my Silent Armors because they were an A/T tire snow-rated (had the little symbol). I can tell you from driving in Vermont, these tires performed "ok", mainly because we tow a lot & see a lot of mixed conditions, heavy wet snow/black ice/slush/regular ol' puffy light fluff in large amounts. This year we changed to a dedicated studded snow tire. The SA's are now only used on the summer rims. I did look at tires on the tacomas around here in Winter time and the majority were Firestone, Cooper, Nokians and Bridgestone Revos.
I know a member here who said his Silent Armors were great in snow, but was in NJ fwiw.
Also David T. is in the biz so to me a subject matter expert. Maybe he will give you his experience too.
