“Drivers of pickup and light trucks, SUVs and all-terrain vehicles have high expectations for their tires they want a versatile product with uncompromising quality,” said Erik Seidel, president, consumer replacement tire sales, U.S and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “We designed the Firestone Destination A/T2 and Firestone Destination X/T tires to offer the best of both worlds. These tires are tough enough to tackle the most challenging terrain while still providing a comfortable, quiet ride for frequent highway trips.”
“The A/T2 is really about a balanced approach,” said Bridgestone Tire Education Specialist Jason Blackwell. “At the end of the day, this is an all-terrain tire with that good off-road handling, but at the same time, we understand a lot of these customers are those ‘work hard, play hard’ [types], where Monday through Friday you usually live on the road, and maybe by the weekend you take it off-road. This tire is really designed to offer that balanced approach so you can take it on-road and off-road.”
