Bridgstone says the Firestone Destination M/T2 tire has 20% more biting edges than the previous generation tire for better grip on slick, wet surfaces and in snow conditions.

The new Firestone Destination M/T2 tire from Bridgestone Americas Inc. is designed to provide maximum traction for 4x4 vehicles, pickup trucks and SUVs in off-road conditions.

Advances in tire technology, especially compounding, are responsible for improvements in off-road, snow and wet performance compared to the predecessor tire, the Destination M/T. The company says a new tread compound, three-ply sidewall construction and more aggressive upper sidewall lugs give the Destination M/T2 increased traction in mud and offer stronger resistance to chips and tears.

To get maximum traction in muddy conditions, Bridgestone placed the tire lugs at 23-degree angles, an innovation borrowed from its farm tractor tires. The “23-degree attack angles” provide more pulling power through rough terrain.
