Firestone Transforce HT review
What is it?
The Firestone Transforce HT is a highway all season tire designed for SUV's, pickups, vans, and some commercial vehicles. Served as the original equipment tire for the Dodge Ram 2500.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Good dry and wet traction and performance, as well as commendable comfort characteristics.
Substantial user feedback indicates that the Transforce HT is not a true four season tire with sufficient snow/winter capability.
How does the Transforce HT compare?
In the packed field of highway all season tires, the Transforce HT ranks about mid-pack -- nineteenth out of thirty-six tires.
Anything else to know?
Treadlife varies significantly. User feedback suggests that the Transforce HT isn't well-suited for the heavy duty OE Dodge Ram application.
Lack of treadlife warranty is a concern due to reports of deficiencies in this area.
Slightly more coin, but the Bridgestone Duravis R500 HD has many common sizes with the Transforce HT and provides superior performance across the board, including much longer treadlife (though it also lacks some snow/winter capability).
