The Destination A/T2 is Firestone’s On-/Off-Road All-Terrain truck tire developed for drivers of pickup trucks, full-size SUVs, Jeeps and crossovers who want a tire they can depend on to get where they’re going, on- or off-road, and even in inclement weather. Designed with traction and durability at the forefront, the Destination A/T2 also features light snow traction sufficient to earn the tire industry’s severe snow service certification and three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.
A specialized tread compound is molded into the symmetric pattern of the Destination A/T2. Engineered to blend off-road capability with a comfortable and quiet ride, the high-void pattern features a solid center rib that provides constant contact with the road. The full-depth grooves of Firestone’s HydroGrip Technology package help enhance wet weather handling and, combined with the increased see-through void, improves hydroplaning resistance. The aggressive shoulder pattern helps to improve handling off-road, while Stone Rejecters between the tread blocks are designed to reduce damage from stone drilling. The heavily siped features of the Destination A/T2 plus notches in the independent tread blocks and center rib deliver traction in snowy or icy conditions and help the tire earn the 3PMSF symbol.
Internal construction of the Destination A/T2 features a robust, two-ply polyester casing to blend durability and ride quality. Two wide, high-strength steel belts are reinforced with a single, nylon cap ply.
Note: While non-winter tires featuring the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol provide additional longitudinal snow traction beyond what all-season (M+S) tires not bearing the symbol can deliver, they do not match the capability of a true winter tire in all adverse weather conditions.
