Technical description: Are you in search of winter tyres which offer safety and superb performance at a reasonable price? The Firestone Destination Winter is the perfect solution for you. The tyre has been awarded an EU tyre label score of "B" for wet grip, beating all other mid-market tyres on the European market.
The tyre features a directional tread pattern which is particularly well-suited to winter models. The V-shaped grooves efficiently evacuate water, slush and snow from under the tyre, meaning that the tyre surface dries faster. The model is designed for 4x4 vehicles, and so the tread has been specially reinforced. With its massive tread blocks and wide circumferential grooves, the Destination Winter’s has great grip on different surfaces, during sudden manoeuvres and on sharp turns. The components used in the manufacturing of the tyre are resistant to heavy loads and intensive usage.
With uniform distribution of pressure on the tyres, their tread wears out uniformly and slowly. As a result, you can enjoy top performance for the entire usable life of the Destination Winter, without worrying that they’ll deteriorate over time.
The compound used in the tyre is exceptionally flexible, which makes it perform very well in typical winter conditions. The compound has been formulated for use in extremely low temperatures and is relatively light, which translates into lower overall weight of the tyre. This has allowed for a reduction in their rolling resistance, ensuring a more economical drive. The tyre’s material also prevents abrasion and damage.
