The Destination X/T is Firestone’s On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tire developed for the drivers of ¾- and 1-ton pickup trucks, body-on-frame SUVs and Jeeps who want go-anywhere dependability and proven traction, regardless of the conditions. Designed to combine on-road civility, off-road capability and confident light snow traction, the Destination X/T is severe snow service rated and is branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.
A specially formulated rubber compound is molded into the Destination X/T’s aggressive, symmetric pattern. Firestone’s TractionTech Package features full-depth features and interlocking sipes that maintain stiffness in the independent tread blocks for stability and longevity, in addition to providing consistent traction throughout the tire’s life. Deep tread depths, a high void ratio and open shoulders help evacuate water from the contact patch to enhance hydroplaning resistance, while also delivering confident off-road traction. The aggressive off-shoulder tread design creates the biting edges needed to find any available grip in loose and varied terrain. High lateral edge density in the pattern and the interlocking lug design provide snow traction, and block wall ridges in the outboard grooves grab onto snow, further enhancing grip.
Internal construction of the Destination X/T utilizes a two-ply, polyester cord casing supporting two high-tensile steel belts. A nylon reinforcement ply aids durability and provides higher speed capability.
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.
