    There are a few types of off-road tires on the market, with all-terrain and mud-terrain being the most popular. Those drivers who routinely tackle trails, snow, and mud on SUVs and light trucks will need a set of tires that can handle difficult conditions.

    Enter the Firestone Destination M/T2, which is specially designed to tackle severe off-road conditions that also include snow and ice. Go through the Firestone Destination M/T2 review to find out how it would meet your driving requirements.

    Features and Benefits

    Drivers may be regularly crossing off-road territories like muddy patches on their vehicles every day, but do they always have the right tires? It is necessary for the tires to not just perform on unpredictable surfaces, but also last for a long time. Outlined white lettering or black letters on the sidewall fits the tire’s appearance perfectly and a tough construction ensures that heavy weights can be carried. The Firestone Destination M/T2 rating is high due to the following features and benefits:

    • Brand new rubber compound for superior performance
    • Aggressive upper sidewall lugs and a 3-ply sidewall construction for high traction in mud and for withstanding tremendous off-road abuse
    • Can be used with TSMI #16 or 17 studs, where permitted, for greater traction in severe snow and ice
    • Additional biting edges for great traction on wet, slick, and snowy surfaces
    • A high attack angle generates tremendous mud traction

    Pros and Cons

    If you are looking for high average cornering force and little stopping distance, Firestone Destination M/T2 does not score as well as the Cooper Discoverer STT PRO. However, it did make up in the handling department by being consistent and you can check the others pros too:


    • Firm and responsive steering
    • Resistant to chips and punctures
    • Self-cleaning properties for mud and rocks
    • Aggressive tread pattern allows them to climb over anything
    • Excellent dry and wet traction


    • Despite being a studded mud tire, it is not suitable for use in heavy snow as it is not Three Peak Mountain Snowflake certified
    • Tire noise can be on the higher side over highways

    SimpleTire’s view on Firestone Destination M/T2 tires

    During the Firestone Destination M/T2 tire review, we found numerous features dedicated to enhancing traction on a variety of surfaces. Just because it is a mud-terrain tire doesn't mean that the manufacturer hasn’t thought about additional biting edges for wet and snowy areas. Customers who buy them swear by their all-round capabilities and love the even tread wear. Despite the tire noise being on the higher side for some, these tires have behaved in a civil manner even for individuals with low off-road use.

    Vehicles the Firestone Destination M/T2 is an OEM tire for

    The Firestone Destination M/T2 is available as an OEM tire for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport Willys. It is a solid vehicle that can be used as a daily driver and the above tires help it generate a decent fuel economy.

    Vehicles the Firestone Destination M/T2 is a good replacement tire for

    If you’re the owner of a RAM 2500 Cummins or a Toyota 4Runner, you can definitely consider fitting Firestone Destination M/T2 tires. Other vehicles such as the Chevrolet Silverado 2500, GMC Sierra 2500 HD, Ford F-350, and Jeep Gladiator Mojave are a good fit for this tire.

    2013 f150 Rotated every 5k miles 37 Psi average Had these tires for about 43k miles at this point. Healthy mix of highway and dirt road travel. I have been very impressed with these tires. They still have at least 10-15k left in them. I've never had an issue with sliding in wet or snow conditions. That being said I found that it took till around 10k miles to where it would stop spinning tires when stopped on road paint with even light throttle. Not a huge deal though. After 43k only issues I've noticed were their tendency to squeal when turning even at low speeds. Road noice is minimal compared to previous tires I've had such as Coopers. Overall, I would buy these again. They are a life saver when it comes to anything off-road and they ride well on the highway considering they're mid tires.

    I've had a set of these on my 1997 Ram 2500 Cummins for almost a year, and they have blown me away with their all-around capability. I've run them in mud, sand, snow, and rocks, and the closest I've come to getting stuck was pulling a trailer back to the road from the shore at Sand Hollow (where Matt's Offroad Recovery does a huge chunk of their rescues of nut jobs pulling trailers through the sand with heavy diesel pickups). I've towed fairly heavy loads for a couple thousand miles on the highway and they have done that extremely well for an M/T tire. I've gone hundreds more miles empty on the highway with no complaints. There is a little tire noise, but it's barely audible under the Cummins growl. With some careful driving, they got me through snow and ice on my elk hunt last year with no drama. There hasn't been any noticeable tread wear, and they are wearing evenly so far. I'm definitely going to continue buying these tires as needed unless something goes seriously bad as they wear more.

    I've put mostly highway miles on them since buying them, with a bit of offroad travel and I've been nothing short of impressed. They are very civil on the highway for an MT, with much less noise than I anticipated, barely audible under a 12-valve Cummins at 75-80 mph. They're reasonably stable at highway speeds whether empty or towing, although I have yet to put them through any winter driving. As far as offroad performance goes, I haven't asked too much of them yet, but they've easily handled the rocks, gravel, deep sand, and few inches of mud and slush I've encountered so far this year with no slippage or loss of traction to speak of. All in all I'm very satisfied and I look forward to pushing them harder.

    Great tires, haul a lot of heavy loads, cattle, tractors and equipment. Have put about 3,000 miles in last month on them and ride really good. 1/2 highway miles 1/2 off road. Great all around mud tire I got 45,000 miles out of them on a 19 f250 hauling lots of weight on highway, great in mud and sand.

    You must keep the tires rotated every 5,000 miles as with any mt & they'll wear fantastic! Best truck tire I've ever ran to date . And that's coming from an automotive shop owner

    Extremely loud tire. Horrible tread life. Appox. 10K miles and over 55% of tread is gone on my Chevrolet 2500 HD. Very unhappy with these tires.

    06 Ford f350 SD long bed, 6 inch lift.... So far so good!!! Haven't put a ton of miles on yet. Highway primarily. No winter in sunny CA so hard to know about wet, winter conditions at this point. Noise isn't really an issue over the motor, turbo, and Exhaust. Quiet inside too. I got almost 45k out of my toyo mts so as long as I'm in the neighborhood of that. I don't see the need to pay for branding. Nothing bad to say about toyo, except I'm not rich and don't need to pay extra for rubber. May be a firestone guy, but time will tell......
