Firestone Review

About Firestone Complete Auto Care

Firestone tires have been a thing for over a century now, and are among the most popular models on the market today. The company’s tires have been used as the rubber of choice for many automakers over the years, but the picture has not always been rosy for Firestone. In the 1990s, the tiremaker was involved in a major safety problem involving Ford Explorer tires. This resulted in Ford turning to other tire brands for some of its newest models, notably Falken. Now, though, the company has regained much of its former glory and is a strong performer in the tire market.

Best Firestone Tires by Car Type

FR710 – Best for Passenger Cars

Firestone FR710

Firestone’s truck and SUV tires tend to get the best reviews, but the FR710 passenger all-season tire is one of the brand’s best rated tires. It’s got the treadlife warranty and wet traction to keep drivers going. The price is also right as many FR710 models can be had for as little as $90, and the company frequently offers discount deals and rebates to sweeten the pot.

Specs:

  • Brand: Firestone
  • Model: FR710
  • Weight: Varies
  • Available Sizes: 15”, 16”, 17” ,18”

Destination A/T2 – Best SUV Tire

Firestone Destination A/T2

We’ve frequently recommended the Destination A/T2 in our “best tires” guides for various vehicles, and there’s a good reason for that. It’s one of the best rated tires of any type on the market today. It earned five stars for comfort, value, durability, and traction. Car Talk has tested the Destination A/T2 in winter conditions on Jeep SUVs and we were very impressed. Firestone offers a solid 55,000-mile treadlife warranty. If any defects surface in the tires’ first three years, Firestone will replace them free of charge. After that, the company will offer a discount on new tires, prorated by the amount of tread left on the old set.

Specs:

  • Brand: Firestone
  • Model: Destination A/T2
  • Weight: Varies
  • Available Sizes: 15”, 16”, 17”, 18”, 20”, 22”

Destination A/T – Best Truck Tire

Firestone Destination A/T

The original Destination A/T has been out for a while, but it’s still one of the best tires you can choose for your truck or SUV. It, too, carries an excellent treadlife warranty, solid customer reviews, and great traction. It’s also frequently deeply discounted, given its time on the market. One big downside here is that you’ll have to shop around to find them. Tire Rack only has one size currently available, but others are widely available online.

Specs:

  • Brand: Firestone
  • Model: Destination A/T
  • Weight: Varies
  • Available Sizes: 17”

All Season – Best All Season Tire

Firestone All Season

That’s not a typo. Firestone actually grabbed the name “All Season” for one of its tires. The Firestone All Season is a reasonably priced tire with solid customer reviews and a more than decent treadlife rating. They’re widely available, affordable, and come in several sizes that include sizes for 14-inch wheels and other hard-to-find models. Since it’s been on the market for a while, the All Season is frequently available with deep discounts that lowers its already remarkable price.

Specs:

  • Brand: Firestone
  • Model: All Season
  • Weight: Varies
  • Available Sizes: 14”, 15”, 16”, 17”, 19”, 20”

Winterforce 2 – Best Winter Tire

Firestone Winterforce 2

The Firestone Winterforce 2 is rated for severe snow service and comes backed by some of the best customer reviews around. It’s studdable, which can be a great help for folks that spend considerable time driving on ice, and where the roads don’t get plowed as often. Firestone says that the tire is designed with deep grooves to channel water away from the center of the tire, and notes that the thousands of sipes help bite into snow and ice. On top of all of that, the Winterforce 2 is reasonably priced, widely available, comes in several sizes, from 14 to 18 inches, and is one of the few winter tires that’s still studdable if you live in an area where frequent ice is an issue, and your locality allows studded tires.

Specs:

  • Brand: Firestone
  • Model: Winterforce 2
  • Weight: Varies
  • Available Sizes: 14”, 15”, 16”, 17”, 18”

Destination M/T2 – Best Off Road Tire

Firestone Destination M/T

Old-school looks, excellent reviews, and an aggressive design earn the Destination M/T2 tire a spot on our list. The tire is equipped with mud and stone ejectors between tread blocks, which help clear debris and prevent damage. The tires are also pinned, and can accept metal studs to help increase ice traction. Beyond being widely available at tire shops everywhere, the Destination M/T2 is reasonably priced and comes in a large variety of sizes and applications.

Specs:

  • Brand: Firestone
  • Model: Destination M/T2

Why Choose Firestone Tires?

Firestone tires are one of the most popular and widely available brands on the market today. They don’t always match up with Michelin, Goodyear, and others on treadlife, but they consistently rank high in customer reviews. There’s also the matter of price, where Firestone is a solid value pick.

Firestone tires are consistently rated as being quiet, comfortable road tires, even when they’re designed as go-anywhere off-road tires. The company’s winter tires are widely regarded as providing excellent traction and comfort when conditions turn poor, and the passenger car tires come with strong treadlife ratings to keep families on the road for many, many miles.

One downside to some buyers might be the somewhat shorter treadlife ratings, or the fact that some of Firestone’s available catalog is composed of older tires. To that, we would respond that there are plenty of long-life options in Firestone’s product line, and would note that an older model tire can still be a great choice. Past models can also help save money, as they’re not as in-demand as new models.

How long do Firestone tires last?

Depending on the tire, your Firestones could last as long as 60,000 miles. It’s important to note that summer performance tires and winter tires sometimes carry shorter treadlife ratings because of their engineered rubber compounds.

What size tires does Firestone offer?

Firestone offers several sizes in its catalog, ranging from 14 inches all the way up to 22 inches. Not all tires are offered in all sizes, though, so you’ll need to investigate sizes for the model you need.

What brands are comparable to Firestone?

Firestone is comparable to several tire brands, namely Cooper, Hankook Tire, Toyo, and others.

Where can I buy Firestone tires online?

One of the best things about Firestone is that the company’s tires are available almost everywhere. Tire Rack, SimpleTire, Discount Tires, and many more carry Firestone tires with great prices and discounts.

  • Widely available at tire shops across the country
