I have a customer who drives a 2000 Chevy Tracker with Firestone Destination AT’s. She lives on a road that is unpaved and on the side of a steep mountain and you have to have 4 wheel drive to get to her house.
Everyday when Annabel goes to work she has to use 4 wheel drive to go down her rocky driveway and get back up it when she comes home. When you live somewhere like that, you need a tire that’s going to not only provide good traction, but it has to hold up to the wear and tear of the demands of off-roading on a daily basis.
I was pretty surprised when I read how well this tire rated compared to other all-terrains at Tirerack. At the time of this post I think the Destination AT is the number 2 rated tire over there. Before that it held the top spot for a while.
As you can hear in the video above, Annabel is on her second set of AT’s.
That’s how much she likes them. I’ve been working on her Tracker since she got it and I can verify she operates it in pretty severe conditions on a regular basis.
Annabel says she got about 2 1/2 years out of the last set of tires. Not bad when you consider the daily torture she puts them though.
During that period of time I aligned her Tracker once and rotated the tires maybe a couple of times.
