Firestone Destination A/T Tires
* UNI-T technology for outstanding wet performance.
* All terrain aggressive tread design with a smooth quiet ride.
The Firestone Destination A/T with UNI-T is Firestone's "All Terrain" or
AT designed for on road or offroad applications. The tire is
designed to meet the needs of vehicle owners who are looking for
performance and stylish appearance in a tire that will drive well on the
paved road as well as occasional off-road driving. The Destination A/T
tire is engineered to balance an all-terrain tread design with a
comfortable ride for light pickup trucks and SUV's (Sport Utility
Vehicles) while providing year-round traction in a variety of weather
conditions such as snow and rain as well as additional traction
qualities suitable for mild offroad situations.
Utilizing Firestone's comprehensive design method called UNI-T
technology, the Destination A/T attains a blend of off-road traction
with above average on-road characteristics to enhance tire ride comfort,
performance and wear.
The Destination A/T features an innovative compound called "Long Link
Carbon" where longer is stronger. This special form of carbon
black enhances enhanced tread compound to improve the performance in wet
conditions, improve wear on the road, and add tear, cut, and abrasion
resistance that improves off road reliability and durability.
The compound that makes up the tread area is
molded over the shoulder in a design that adds offroad protection and added
traction. A continuous center rib enhanced highway stability while the
circumferential grooves, sipes and the lateral notches enhance wet weather
traction. Internally the tire's structure uses twin, high-tensile steel cord
belts with a polyester cord body giving strength and durability to the
Key Firestone Destination AT Features:

feature creates noise-canceling sound waves to reduce tire noise on paved
Innovative Compound - Longer Is
Stronger - L.L. Carbon utilizes a special form of molecular re-engineered carbon
black, a key factor in improving tire wear while enhancing wet performance.
Innovative Tire Design - A
Comprehensive Tire Design Method - This method improves handling in wet or dry
conditions and reduces irregular treadwear by combining an ideal tread design,
casing shape, materials and construction.
Innovative Roundness - Rounder Is
Better - Rounder overall tire shape provides better balance for wet or dry
Spiral Wrap is a continuous nylon
wrap that encircles the whole tire, helping the tire hold its original shape to
improve high speed capability.
