MPG Change With Replacement GY Fortera

I know I am in the minority here, but I have nothing bad to say about the stock Fortera tires. I am aware, however, that aftermarket tires may be different than the stockers even when they carry the same name and look alike. My question is for anybody who has replaced the Forteras with Forteras, did you suffer a loss in MPG with the replacement tires? I appreciate your input.

Re: MPG Change With Replacement GY Fortera

I love the Forteras, and I give partial credit to the tires for the great mileage I've been getting. I'm getting ready for a new set and I found the dealer's price was in line with Goodyear's.

As to there being any difference between Forteras, I doubt it. But it has definitely spooked me away from a more aggressively-treaded tire.
