Firestone Destination LE2 all-season tires are designed for large vehicles – executive sedans, heavy SUVs, crossovers, pickups and minivans. When developing this model, great attention was paid to the indicators of comfort and traffic safety, which determined its popularity among owners of luxury and premium segment cars. This model is designed for operation in the climatic conditions of a Central European winter, which is not characterized by heavy snowfalls and long periods of severe frost.
- Excellent wet and dry grip.
- Good cornering ability.
- Comfort and low noise level.
- Long tread life.
- Bad grip on ice and hard surfaces.
The tread of the tire contains silicon dioxide, and thanks to the symmetrical tread pattern, the tires provide a reliable grip on dry, wet or snowy roads. Firestone Destination LE2 tires have reliable grip performance, confident handling on wet and dry roads, and excellent acoustic comfort. The Firestone Destination LE2 rubber has an innovative tread pattern that improves tire performance.
A central groove located in the tread for high safety in wet driving conditions and helps the rubber to maintain block rigidity. Various blocks and special shoulder zones provide high acoustic comfort and safety when making manoeuvres. Reinforced shoulder blocks provide directional stability and protect tires from wear, impact, and other damage, which allows the tire to be used for a long time without losing its qualities.
The Firestone Destination LE2 tire is an excellent option for city streets and avenues. With them, you cannot be afraid of bumps on curbs and other emergencies. It is a perfect option for SUV and crossover owners who prefer urban environments to off-road driving.
With your purchase, you get a 5-year or 60,000 miles LE2 tread warranty.
The maintenance indicators
You will not find the usual wear indicators in this tire model. Instead, the company suggests measuring tread wear with a penny. To do this, you need to stick a penny into the tire tread grooves. If the tire tread touches the upside-down head of Abraham Lincoln, the tire tread depth is at least 2/32 inches.
Is it suitable for off-road driving?
Although the tire is suitable for trucks and SUVs, it is best not to use this tire off-road. This tire is intended for on-road use only.
Driving on dry, wet and snowy roads
The asymmetric non-directional tread pattern has a complex configuration, thanks to which high traction performance is achieved on a variety of road surfaces and in various weather conditions.
Numerous multidirectional grooves create sharp corners and edges that act as tread lugs. This technology provides excellent traction on wet, slippery, or icy roads. At the same time, the edges, unlike sipes and blocks, do not wear out when driving on summer asphalt, and the smooth tread surface helps to reduce rolling resistance and increase the car’s fuel economy.
The drainage system of the Firestone Destination LE2 tire is formed by those multidirectional grooves. Large volumes of water are removed along with them, preventing the car from falling into hydroplaning on a wet track.
Smoothed shoulder corners reduce noise when driving on rough road surfaces. Shoulder macroblocks of the Firestone Destination LE2 tire reliably prevent axial displacement of the vehicle during high-speed manoeuvres, precisely maintaining a safe trajectory.
Drivers report that the tires have excellent handling, confidently hold the road both on dry asphalt and in the rain, even with snow. They behave confidently when changing lanes through puddles. Some drivers were initially afraid to drive in the rain and worried that the tire would not ride well in such weather conditions. But the car rides easily, responds very well to the steering wheel and does not lead anywhere, behaves perfectly when changing lanes and braking.
