Anyone running Firestone LE2s?

Anyone with Firestone LE2s?

I know a lot of folks run a lot of all terrain tires here. My car came with and currently has Michelin X LT A/S tires. They don’t look aggressive by any means but I haven’t had one issue with them in the past 55,000 miles that I have driven with them.

I had a chance to buy a used set of Michelin Defenders with 5000 miles on them for around $425 but that deal fell through.

I would like to get another set of Michelin‘s since I drive a lot but there around $900 with tax before installation.

I know someone who can get me a new set of the Firestones for around $640 with tax.

Appreciate the comments?


I was also looking at the Cooper DISCOVERER AT3 4S’s but they’re around $830 with tax as well.

My 4Runner came with Firestone LE2s when I bought it. I don't know how many miles they had on them when I bought the 4Runner, but I've put about 62,000 miles on them since then. They are down to about 5/32nds of tread and starting to get cracks in the sidewall so I'll be replacing them soon.

They are good tires in pretty much all conditions. Even with the small amount of tread left I don't have any problems driving in snow (especially with 4WD on). I've been driving up into the mountains every weekend this winter and haven't had any issues with traction going up or down unplowed roads. I don't do any heavy off-roading though, just some dirt/gravel/forest roads.

I considered replacing them with the same tire, but now I don't see them available at the tire shops in my area. They are way cheaper than the Bridgestone Dueler LTH and Michelin Defender LTX that I'm also looking at. You would get a better tire, more miles, and maybe better mpgs with those two, but the LE2s are a good option if you want to go the cheaper route.

I had a set of the LE2 tires in 265/65/17 on my 4th gen 4Runner about 10 years ago. Itís a great street tire. Itís an HT as opposed to an AT or an MT.

If all of your driving is on pavement, you will be happy with them.
