The Destination A/T is Firestone’s On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tire developed for jeep, sport utility vehicle and pickup truck drivers who want tires that offer handling on the road and toughness off it. Available with three sidewall styling choices; Outline White Letter, traditional blackwall and a Special Edition blackwall featuring a stylish Carbon Black Camo design, Destination A/T tires combine ride quality and noise comfort with year-round traction in dry, wet and wintry weather, even in light snow.
Destination A/T tires feature a Long Link Carbon enhanced tread compound to blend wet performance and wear on-road with cut- and abrasion-resistance off-road. The tread compound is molded into a symmetric all-terrain tread pattern that features a continuous center rib flanked by independent intermediate blocks and wrap-around shoulders that combine highway stability with off-road and wintertime traction. Circumferential and lateral grooves enhance wet weather traction while faceted tread blocks and deep sipes enhance traction on loose surfaces and in snow.
The tire’s internal structure includes twin, high-tensile steel cord belts reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon on top of a polyester cord casing to combine strength, durability and ride comfort.
