Firestone Destination A/T2. FEATURES AND BENEFITS: All Season Traction; Upgraded Handling Ability; Enhanced Driving Comfort; All Terrain Traction; . OVERVIEW: The Firestone Destination A/T2 is an all season, all terrain tire made for SUVs. The manufacturer offers a 55,000 mile warranty for this model.This model boasts an all season rubber blend that keeps the tread flexible despite the varying temperatures throughout the year. Combined with the wide, aggressive footprint, it easily dominates any road surface in dry, wet, and winter weather conditions. This tire is designed to maintain grip no matter what, utilizing an abundance of biting edges on its tread in the form of grooves, sipes, and tread blocks. All the tread elements follow a zigzag pattern, including the grooves. They take care of hydroplaning by eliminating slush, water, and snow from the footprint while on the road.The completely flat footprint, with the elevated shoulders, stabilizes the tread against the road surface. Besides enhancing driving stability, this also improves the tire’s overall maneuverability. The tire responds quicker and with greater precision to the driver’s commands while its structure is firmly secured against the driving pressure. With the reinforced internal structure, the sidewall is unlikely to flex under pressure, which largely contributes to the tire’s safe steering ability. Another benefit of the sturdy structure is that the tire is able to carry heavier loads.The tread pattern has the optimal void ratio and angled tread elements to maintain traction in a wide range of different terrain conditions. The tire provides high performance in loose, uneven, and soft off-road terrains as well. This model is going to maintain forward motion even in challenging off-road conditions without side-slipping. The shoulder blocks are extended to the side as well, ensuring a firm grip while cornering with the vehicle. The tire even comes with a self-cleaning ability that ensures traction by eliminating obstructing objects like rocks, mud, or snow from the footprint.The Firestone Destination AT2 enhances driving comfort by utilizing the zigzag grooves. Once the airwaves enter the grooves, they get channeled through the footprint. This means that the vibrations won’t spread to the tread elements, significantly reducing the road noises generated. This is the main advantage of the circumferential grooves besides hydroplaning prevention and this tire has four of them. By preventing sound wave formations, the vehicle cabin is going to be quieter and the driving experience more enjoyable. Manufacturers recommend changing tires every 10 years. As long as tires are properly stored before they are sold, the year of their manufacture will not shorten their service life.
