Firestone Transforce AT review
What is it?
The Firestone Transforce AT is an on-/off-road commercial traction tire designed for full-size pickups, vans, sport utility and commercial vehicles. Capable of both highway and light off-road use, and the Transforce AT aims to provide four season capability.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Decent dry and wet traction and performance, but short of the category leaders.
Data indicates that Transforce AT snow/winter capabilities are notably off the pace, especially ice traction. Treadlife is also not nearly as strong as with various tire category alternatives.
How does the Transforce AT compare?
The above characteristics combine to give the Destination AT an overall subjective user ranking of fifth out of five on-/off-road commercial traction tires.
Anything else to know?
The Transforce AT is more affordable than superior alternatives like the BF Goodrich Commercial T/A Traction and Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac, but not by a notable margin.
We'd suggest that in this case, the Firestone value factor isn't substantial enough with the Transforce AT to settle for the performance deficiencies. And with treadlife being limited as compared to alternatives, that apparent value component may actually be nil in the long term.
