If you're looking for a new set of tires, the options are seemingly endless. With so many different manufacturers creating numerous different types of tires, how do you decide which company to go with? Today we'll talk about one of the most popular tire companies around, Firestone. Firestone tires are designed for a wide variety of applications and they have a reputation for being high quality and high performing. We're going to list our top 3 favorite Firestone tires and to make sure that we include a tire for nearly every application, we've picked one off-road tire, one performance tire, and one all-season tire. Let's get right into it!
1. Firestone Destination MT2 Review
First on the list is the Firestone Destination MT2. This is an aggressive mud tire from Firestone that has a very blocky design with large spacing and a decent amount of siping. You'll notice that the sidewall of this tire is just as aggressive as the tread. That's because Firestone added a serrated sidewall in order to give the Destination MT2 better grip in softer surfaces like mud and sand.
There are also a lot of evacuation channels that will allow water to pass through to improve grip in slippery conditions as well as stone ejectors to throw debris out of the tire to maintain traction. If you're using the Destination MT2 in winter climates, the siping will help bite into the snow and the MT2 comes ready for studs if you live in a state that allows them! Pricing for the Firestone Destination MT2 starts as low as $1052 for a set of 4!
2. Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 Review
For those of you that are more inclined to bring your vehicle to a racetrack or curvy back road, the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 could be the best bang for your buck performance tire on the market right now. The Firehawk Indy 500 is Firestone's most aggressive road-legal performance tire and customers have been absolutely loving it! Not only does this tire perform incredibly well in performance environments, but it also looks the part! The tread design is very sharp with jagged channels running throughout and an aggressive, yet attractive sidewall design.
There is a large, wavy evacuation channel running down the center of the tire. This is Firestone's new Pulse Groove Technology. When combined with the other evacuation channels, the Indy 500 is able to drastically reduce stopping distance in wet conditions. This tire will hold up to all of your performance driving needs while maintaining a quiet ride for daily use! You can grab a set of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires starting at just over $600.
3. Firestone All Season Review
Last but certainly not least we have the Firestone All Season. This is the perfect tire for daily driving. The All Season offers a smooth ride, low road-noise, and an attractive look. There are plenty of evacuation channels which will give extra traction in wet conditions as well as a shorter stopping distance.
There is a decent amount of siping to help with winter traction as well, but we'd recommend looking at winter tires for the best possible snow performance. The All Season is designed to be a long-lasting, reliable daily driving tire and it passes all of those tests. Plus this tire comes with a 65,000-mile warranty. You can purchase a set of Firestone All Season tires for as low as $500!
