I purchased four new Firestone Destination A/T tires size 245/75/r16 and have been very satisfied with these tires. They are rated very well for in the snow and icy conditions which here in Vermont we have long winters. I dont even need to add weight to the rear of my truck to barrel through some heavy snow conditions on the roads. I once in while will have to put it in 4 wheel drive but not to often. I have found that the design of these tires are very rugged and can perfrom in all kinds of terrain. I have been through thick mud and snow and no problems. This tire is also a good regular every day driving tire as it is not loud or anything. I purchased these through Tirerack.com which I found is alot cheaper than purchasing them through any of the local auto mechanic shops in the area. I saved almost 200.00 the only thing I had to do was have them mounted and balanced. Ups delivered in like 3 or 4 days was very pleased.
