Are you a mud lover?

Do you want a dedicated mud tire for your pickup or SUV that clears quickly with little tire spin?

Then check out the Firestone Destination M/T. A terrific mud tire that delivers maximum off-road traction with impressive on-road manners, all at a low cost price.

The primary focus of the Destination M/T is off-road performance. It utilizes a unique 23-degree attack angle that provides the tread with greater pulling power for outstanding traction in mud, dirt, sand, gravel and snow. No matter what the terrain is, these tires hold their ground and prove themselves time and time again.

And with a lug design that’s built to claw at ruts and mud, the Destination M/T keeps itself immaculately clean without much tire spin to prevent you from getting stuck.

Inside the Destination M/T is Dura-Loc construction that uses a 3-ply polyester cord and body to resist punctures and damage from on and off-road hazards, and increase all-round stability at high speeds. You can be certain that the tread blocks on these tires won’t chunk.

Driving in the snow is a joy

Firestone DESTINATION MT Tread

Snow traction on the Destination M/T is among the best in the class. They’re even pinned to accept metal studs for those who need even greater winter traction.

Ice traction is the only real downside to the Destination M/T, but as a dedicated mud tire, what do you expect?

Do you indulge in rock crawling from time to time?

Then you’ll be delighted to know that the Destination M/T’s tread pattern works exceptionally well in the rocks, providing enough open voids for the biting edges of the lugs to grab rocks and prevent slippage. And the over the shoulder lug design works really well to provide extra traction while the tire is rolled over onto its sidewall.

Also, to prevent the wheel from being damaged by curbs and rocks, and to stop debris from getting between the tire bead and rim area, there’s Rim Guard Protectors on the sidewall too.

On the road, the tread compound which includes L.L Carbon grips the Destination M/T to the pavement in both wet and dry conditions. Braking and steering is very responsive and they don’t howl like many other off-road tires. Just turn up the radio and you’ll barely notice them.

Overall the Firestone Destination M/T is good on pavement, great off-road and unstoppable in the snow. They do wonders on the beach, in the mud and in the swamp. So if you want a tire that has the grip required to meet all your off-road needs, but also looks great on your truck, the Destination M/T is for you.
