The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
Are you in search of winter tyres which can handle wet surfaces and offer guaranteed safety regardless of the weather? The Firestone Destination Winter is the ideal solution for 4x4 vehicles in any conditions.
The tyre features a directional tread, which is the preferred choice for manufacturers of winter tyres due to its performance on wet surfaces and snow. The V-shaped grooves efficiently evacuate water and slush from under the tyre, which ensures that the tread dries rapidly. This means that outstanding grip is maintained, regardless of the weather. The solid shoulder blocks and dense network of sipes ensure that the tyre is exceptionally stable, even when cornering or performing sudden manoeuvres.
Firestone Destination Winter is based on a rubber compound designed for extreme weather conditions that ensures appropriate flexibility at low temperatures. The compound is light, which lowers the weight of the entire structure. This results in lower rolling resistance and consequently in reduced fuel consumption. As a result, the tyre is not only more environmentally friendly, but also economical.
The components used in the tyre guarantee resistance to all types of mechanical damage resulting, for example, from impacts with the curb. With an even distribution of pressure acting on the tyres’ treads, they wear out in a slow and uniform way, giving you the full performance of Firestone Destination Winter tyres throughout their entire usable life.
