Firestone Destination ATs... Opinions?

Anyone have these? I did a comparison on Tirerack.com and they crushed the BF Goodrich All Terrain A/T KO and Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor...

I have a Stock 2005 Unlimited with 15' stock rims. Looking for good combination of on and offroad handling for a daily driver/weekend adventure vehicle.

How big could I go stock vs with a 2'' Suspension Lift? 4WheelParts.com is offering Free install on lift kits if you buy the parts this weekend and I am considering upgrading...

Stock you can go to 31's, with 2" lift 32's. I'd vote for Duratracs.. I love mine, on and offroad. $100 rebate on 4 if you join treadlightly.org before the end of Aug....

x2 on the goodyear wrangler duratracs, great aggressive looks, quite on the high way, do a fine job off road for something that is that quite on the road. I have only had mine about a week but I am really glad i decided to give them a try. I highly recomend you take a look at them.

Here is a pic of 235/75/15's on mine (got a good deal and helps MPG's) Still doesn't do them justice but I hope it will encourage you to look into them.

Checked treadlightly.org and didn't see offer... do you have a link to the sale info on that deal? It looks like several people here are running the duratracs... I will consider them if I can find a link to that discount.

Thanks to everyone who responded, going out wheeling tomorrow, then new tires next week
