As an update I live in the part of the country that got 2 feet of snow this past weekend and my destinations, 225/70/r14 have been doing great. Open diff 2wd, 3.45 gears and I have not been stuck nor have I had a close call yet. *knock on wood*

I feel bad for the original poster, I have 245/75-16's and each tire was 107. Regardless, by far the best A/T tire I've ever ridden on. The truck came with Wrangler RT/S... they weren't even at half life and they were all cracked in the treads. on top of that, the treads were starting to separate on all fours.

The destination A/Ts are cheap... and i love em!

Kemo, at $125 per, I've felt they have been worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY!!!

Maybe it's because my size in that tire is less common.

Either way, close to 18 months later, I'm still VERY happy with them. They appear to have 75% of the tread left and are still holding up well.

Heck, they even CORNER well. Not exactly a Firehawk, but for my needs, they work very well.

on Kemo's 16 inch rims you can get just about any tire you want so they have to lower the price to be more appealing.

on our 14 inch rims they're basically the only aggressive tread tire you can get, so they aren't exactly competitively priced. Mine were about $156 each and they gave me the 4th one free, which works out to about $117 a piece.

Honestly, after having them for a year I'd buy them again even if I didn't get the 4th tire free. They're just good tires, period.

Where are all these prices coming from! I got a new set of 265/75/16's for my old truck for $115 a tire and $50 for mount/balance/install. I guess I got a hell of a deal!

But the destinations are down right amazing. I used to love sliding around in the snow here in Illinois(when it was intentional), but after getting the Destinations I had to really hammer down to break them loose. They took me through some gnarly 4 foot snow drifts, huge mud holes, and shallow creek crossings. I only had about 8000 miles on them when the truck was sold. They wore very evenly and square. They remind me of the BFG A/T's very much.

Wonderful tires, and my new 2.3 needs some new rubber before this winter and I know exactly what Ill be buying!
