GY Forteras

I made my 3rd trip to the dealership today for a vibration in one of the tires.

1st Trip - They road force balanced them and moved the bad one to the back (without telling me)

2nd Trip - Balanced them again.

Today - They are ordering a new tire and replacing it tomorrow.

Not real happy with having to drive 40 minutes 3 (will be 4) times for the same issue, but I am glad it's getting fixed finally.

Back for my 5th trip for tire vibration. First replacement tire road forced at -37. Worse than the original.

What was worse, when I left that time the front had a vibration.

Not sure what the issue with the Forteras is, but I will be replacing them soon!

Re: GY Forteras

They ended up taking brand new wheels and tires off an overland and putting on mine. Rides smooth like I expected in the first place.

I wouldn't want to be the person buying that overland. Hopefully they put 4 new tires on it.

Re: GY Forteras

One of my tires has a slow leak, at only 330 miles. I might be replacing these soon also.

That happened to one of my tires when I first bought my Overland. Took 3 trips to the dealer to get it fixed, and they charged me 2 out of the 3 times. What a joke.

That's ridiculous. I think I have a good dealer (Koons) so hopefully they give me a new one for free.

Re: GY Forteras

Reasons why most of the time oem wheels and tires suck.
