The Destination M/T2 is Firestone’s Off-Road Maximum Traction tire designed for the drivers of Jeeps, pickup trucks, full-size SUVs and dedicated off-road vehicles looking for a tire with capability that backs up its rugged looks.
Utilizing a chip- and tear-resistant rubber compound molded into an aggressive, high-void pattern, the Destination M/T2 is designed to travel far from the beaten path. Taking lessons learned from Firestone’s extensive experience designing tires for agricultural use, the tread blocks feature 23 degree attack angles for optimum pulling power on loose surfaces. Its serrated upper sidewall lugs are more aggressive than those on the previous Destination M/T to provide improved side bite for traction in soft terrain, and the mud and stone ejectors between the tread blocks clear debris from the tread to prevent damage from stone drills. Compared to its predecessor, a 20% increase in the number of biting edges improve traction on wet, slippery surfaces and in the snow.
The internal construction of the Destination M/T2 is designed for durability, with three polyester casing plies intended to improve resistance to punctures, and two high-strength steel belts with a nylon reinforcement to stabilize the tread.
Destination M/T2 tires are pinned to accept optional metal studs to increase ice traction.
