Re: How long did your fortera tires last?

1400 Miles and replaced then with Terra Grapplers. I hated the Fortera's. They were loud, hard, bumpy and horrible in the slick stuff. I have them in their bags on my back porch if anyone wants to buy them off of me.

Re: How long did your fortera tires last?

My Forterras failed a few times (sidewall punctures) Had the Discount Tire replacement deal for $29 per tire so those were taken care of but the two OEMs are bare and dead at 38k miles

Going to Nitto Terra Grapplers

Re: How long did your fortera tires last?

About 49k miles on mine now I should be able to last through the summer, 10 to 15k miles, and then get a new set for winter.

Aside from hydroplaning during a deluge last month they have been good tires.

Re: How long did your fortera tires last?

I'm at almost 31K miles and still have slightly less than half the tread left. I do plan on replacing them sometime in the summer when I have the funds to do so...moving to Nitto NT421Q.

Re: How long did your fortera tires last?

Just got a split across the tread, with very little life left on the rest of them at 21k. Replaced with a set of Yokohama parada spec-x, and have been happy with them so far. They look good, nice tread pattern and most importantly feel good driving great. Anythings better than the fortera's.

Re: How long did your fortera tires last?

I must have gotten a good set. I am at 41K and they will easily go to 50K - not even close to the wear bars. Performance has been very good and noise is low.

Re: How long did your fortera tires last?

38 miles. that's how many miles were on my Jeep when I bought it and I made the dealership take those pieces of crap off and put on a decent tire.
