    I don't read much about the Firestone Destination's here.
    Is it because of how they look?
    Are they better suited for other trucks, suv's, and not our taco's?
    Is it that this site is more about trucks that wheel and not daily drivers with some mild weekend wheeling?

    Just wondering.
    According to the tirerack survey it's a very highly rated tire, yet even after searching there's not much discussion about them here.

    When I had my Jeep Cherokee I bought some Revo 2's and loved the wet weather traction. I bought the same tires for my 2004 Double Cab.

    Now, I'm installing icon coilovers, aals in the rear and daydreaming of new rims. With all of that will come new tires and I may just go with the Revo's again....unless you guys have a love story to tell regarding the Firestones. :)

    ...and great site here. I need to formally introduce myself at some point. I've learned lots already....thanks for any input.

    How did you do that?!:confused: Searching is hard...:laugh:

    I had a set on our '06 Grand Cherokee and loved them for a year round grocery getting tire. Never wheeled the vehicle of course but they served us real well for 40k miles or so before we sold the Jeep. Well tested in the wet weather as well as snow and ice as a mountain ride and a few snowboard road trips. They wore really evenly even with minimal rotation and were much quiter on our jeep than the BFG AT's are on my Tacoma.

    I've had them on company trucks in the past (Dodge Ram 2500).
    Was in S. Texas at the time so I can't speak to how they handle snow or ice, but they were great on the road in wet and dry, and they also did well on packed dirt and dry sand.

    HA!
    I was searching the 1st gen forum, then found the wheels forum and posted here.
    Obviously, I should have searched the wheels forum.
    Rookie move.

    Thanks for the links and comments.
