ya they look good, till youre standing in line at the VD clinic with a imberassed look and an itchy crotch.;p
As for the destinations, there are a few members running them and i havent heard any complaints yet. They should have similar performance to BFG MT, actually i think id try the firestone over the bfgs but thats just me.
They are a typical MT with paddle lugs on the side and lugs down the center for pavement performance and lateral traction. The outer treads are a decent size and seem to have a good amount of tread void for grabbing and have a decent size lug to lessen chuncking. Ive seen them run on CTD with welder and tools on back and the owner really liked em for wear and traction, he even drove them in the winter and said they werent bad (real heavy trucks will get better traction on MT tires than lighter vehicles)
I have a set of 33 X 12.5's and love them. Have had them out wheeling a couple times. They dig hard, clear out nicely, and even performed pretty good up in the snow. I have not driven them on snowy or icy roads, just snow wheeling. They are even surprisingly quiet on the pavement for a mud tire, and seem to handle well. I have only had them on a few months, but my bro in law had a set of 31's that he rotated between a few different rigs, put about 35-40K on them, before selling them on his Pathfinder recently, and they still had a 30% or better left in them.
I have them on my '85 BJ60 and I love them. I probably have less then 10k miles on them but they have handled very well in all kinds of conditions. I was very suprised how well they worked in the snow.
A little update. I bought and have been running the Mts for 8 mos. now. I really do love them so far. Awesome in mud, rocks (minor chunking). Good in snow but horrible on ice and hard snow pack. Especially with a locker.
Yep. I've had mine for almost a year now. Had them offroad multiple times. Can't say enough about how impressed I am in their performance. Still haven't had a chance to try them on snowy or icy roads, as we just don't get that much here. But the mud and rock performance has been great, and they seem to be wearing very well. I have never run BFG MT's, but I have been wheeling with guys on Swampers with lockers, and my open diffs and Destination's kept right up.
I have a set.
They wear very well. Longest wearing mud tire I ever had.
They have the best warranty, 2 years.
But the warranty doesn't cover "abuse"
I am disappointed. A lug tore off one of my tires. I had only done light wheeling. I called Firestone. They left it up to the discretion of a local dealer. The guy was a real dick and said it was obviously abused. Firestone said he had the last word.
I have a set of Goodyear MTR's on another rig that gets wheeled much harder and never had anything like that happen.
My son works for Firestone so I tried to be more than objective, but from here on out it's Goodyear MTR's
