    You drive a pickup or an SUV, don't really drive off-road, and want a tire that delivers predictable handling, reasonable ride comfort, good treadlife, and traction in a variety of conditions. That may be a lot to ask. But if it's what you're looking for, a Highway All-Season tire should fit your needs.

    Firestone Destination LE 2 tires

    2008 Sequoia. I show the tire but that's it. Not really a review, but rather I'm just showing the tire tread. They perform excellent. My parents really like the tires. On dry road, wet road, snow, and even on ice, they said they perform excellent.
