Firestone Destination LE2 Tires (Our Review)

Overall Assessment

The Destination LE2 is certainly an upgrade from the original LE where improvements in handling and road noise are noticeably prominent. The symmetric tread pattern and silica enhanced all season tread compound produce solid traction on dry, wet or snow covered road surfaces.

The reinforced center rib and notched shoulder blocks deliver increased handling and cornering performance as well as a stronger steering response. The sweeping lateral and circumferential grooves expel water from the tire tread and reduce the overall risk of hydroplaning.

As a result, wet road traction is enhanced and allows for added confidence when driving in rough weather conditions. Firestone have integrated unique cross grooves and zigzag sipes around the tire to produce better performance on snow. On the inside of the tire, drivers will notice two steel belts that are reinforced with nylon for added durability and strength throughout the speed range.

Ride comfort is further increased with a polyester cord body which gives drivers a great feel on the roads. The Destination LE2 is an excellent option for drivers on a budget seeking enhanced performance and a comfortable ride.

Pros

  • Outstanding hydroplaning resistance 
  • Well priced and affordable for drivers on a budget
  • Excellent traction and grip in dry conditions
  • Solid braking in wet conditions
  • Substantially quieter than competitors and allow for a smooth ride

Cons

  • Treadwear warranty is sub standard
  • Does not perform well on ice or snow
  • Not very responsive on the highway at higher speeds
