I replaced the original Goodyear withe a set of Firestone Destinations. I was immedeately impressed with the quiet ride. The first thre days that I had them, we had a lot of rain and the tires never missed a beat. They did not spin on start up like the Goodyear. The "Stones have a nice looking tread pattern which compliments the looks of the Element. I am quite satsified. I received excllent sevice at a local Firestone store and also had the brake fluid flushed and an oil change, all for under $600 including mounting, balancing, tax and a tire disposal fee that is mandatory in the Peoples Socialist Republic of Maryland.
