The Firestone Destination M/T – One Of Our Top Sellers!
At Alignment Center and Alaska Car & Truck in Anchorage, AK, we see a lot of drivers who are looking for the best tires to get them through a tough Alaska winter and beyond. One of our biggest sellers, year in and year out, has been the Firestone Destination M/T. Here’s why:
The Destination M/T features Firestone’s innovative Long Link Carbon tread compound, a special formula of carbon black that’s been re-engineered at the molecular level. Long Link Carbon helps enhance wet-weather performance and tire wear properties on the highway, while resisting cuts, tears and abrasions off-road. The symmetric tread design is comprised of deep lugs, with a pattern of lugs wrapping around the shoulders at a 23-degree attack angle for extra biting edges to claw into ruts and generate traction.
Toward the tire’s bead, Firestone’s Rim Guard Off-Road Protector Ribs help prevent damage to rims and keep the sidewall stiffer for a more positive fit between bead and rim. Internally, the Destination M/T is built with high-tensile steel cord belts and a spiral-wrapped nylon cap layer, with a three-ply polyester cord body for durability and road manners.
The Destination M/T from Firestone is branded with the industry’s M + S symbol for wintertime traction. While the Destination M/T is great on deep snow, it can also be equipped with TSMI #6 silver-colored metallic studs for enhanced traction on ice.
The Destination M/T isn’t covered by a treadlife warranty, but is backed by a five-year warranty on workmanship and materials. That warranty covers free replacement for the first three years, then a prorate replacement cost until it reaches a minimum 2/32” tread depth.
The Destination M/T, of course, comes with the great quality you’ve come to expect from Firestone and is a great balance of rugged traction off-road and good ride quality and noise suppression on the highway. It’s no surprise that we sell so many of them! If you’re thinking it’s time for a set of tires for your Jeep, SUV or light truck, make an appointment with us at Alignment Center and Alaska Car & Truck in Anchorage, AK and let us make you a great price on a set of Firestone Destination M/T’s.
