Firestone Destination LE2; new look, better performance
Firestone tire dealers probably don’t have this yet, but come May the new Firestone Destination LE2 should be on the racks. Fleets and contractors looking for a great OE replacement tire might want to keep this tire in mind.
Virtually all aspects of this popular tire, which is made for CUV, SUV and light truck applications, have been improved upon, including dry performance, ride comfort and noise and fuel efficiency.
In fact, the Destination LE2 offers a 15 percent improvement in RRC (Rolling Resistance Coefficient), which translates to up to 2 percent in fuel economy improvement over its predecessor product.
Destination LE2 will be available in 37 sizes – T- and H-rated – from 15” to 20” rim diameter starting in May.
“We’re always working to make our products even better for our customers, and we’re excited to bring these next generation tires to market,” said Larry Magee, President, Consumer Tire U.S. & Canada, BATO.
“Both Turanza Serenity Plus (another new tire from Bridgestone) and Firestone Destination LE2 are high demand products for today’s drivers, and we are excited to raise our own bar in providing even more performance as we continue to evolve these brands.”
Both the Turanza Serenity Plus and Destination LE2 have earned the company’s “Eco-Product” distinction, which is reserved to identify Bridgestone- or Firestone-brand tires designed for improved environmental performance over the predecessor product.
