"I mostly drive local roads everyday driving 25 miles to work. Roads speeds vary from 30 - 50mph with many road conditions from needing to be repaved to very smooth. (though we just completed a 2000 mile round trip to Florida as well on all highway). When I put on these new Firestones the car felt "lighter" driving around being very responsive to minor turns of the wheel. Road noise was definitely reduced given this tire design is not as aggressive so that was a nice bonus. I've had zero issues with wet weather where I would experience my other tires slipping when taking off in 1st gear, I do not have that issue with these tires. Snow/Ice ranking I would have given N/A if available given we had a very warm winter in NY so no real tests there! All in all, very pleased with these tires especially at this price point." - Amawalk, NY

The truck has 308,000 miles on it. I don't carry any load on it but drive it as a regular vehicle, the tires are a smooth ride and hold corners well, thanks

So far these tiers have done all things well. I am using them on my conversion van in the north east. Not much snow this year, but what little we got the van handled with no problems. I was concerned when my research showed that the best tires for the van would be from Firestone. Time will tell - rite now I am happy.

Joe at STS Tire in West Berlin recommended these tires to replace goodyear tires due to tread wear. So far we are very pleased with the new tires and appreciate Joe's assistance.

Haven't driven in snow or ice; so it's rated at 50% in those categories. I do drive my vehicle daily from queens to Long Island; and easily average 120-150 miles every day. These tires make that commute safer. I love them, they're so damn sticky, I'm, as Mavis defines it, an "energetic" driver. I happen to have a lead foot, and push my car a tad hard. These tires stick to the ground on turns. Even in pouring rain, they're extremely hydroplane resistant. I know a lot about hydroplaning; I'm an EMT, and I've lost my bus a few times responding to calls. If you're hesitant; don't be; they also come with a 60 or 80k warranty. I can't remember; but at the price Mavis is selling them for, I didn't expect them to come with a discount.

So far I'm very happy with these tires for rain and dry conditions. I have yet had the opportunity to try these on snow or ice so I could not give a fair evaluation of the tire handling of those aspects. Everything else so far has been excellent. I would definitely recommend these and buy them again.

So far these have been very respectable tires. I live down a dirt road that is very icy and snowy in the winter, wet/muddy in the spring, and pot-holed in the summer. These tires have handled it all well. They are quiet, track true down the highway, and are vibration-free. So far I am quite happy with them. With only 2200 miles on them, I can't comment on tread life yet.

Just had these put on before a major snow storm. I drive over 50 miles round trip for work so I wanted something safe. This was the best choice from everyone's review and the ratings. I couldn't be happier with these tires. I would definitely buy them again, worth every penny.

My previous tire were Michelin. The Firestone Destinations are quieter, give a softer ride and handle better. I am thrilled with these tires and would definitely buy again from Mavis. The price was good, got an excellent wheel alignment and the service was done in a timely manner.

Have only had these tires on truck for 1000 miles so far. Much quieter than the oem michelens. New tread design so I thought I would go with them. Mostly drive on highway, very little snow where we live and when it does snow, they plow the streets. Tires ride nice, quiet, handle well. Great all around tire for regular driving. Handle on the soft side for a comfortable ride, which is what we wanted.
