Re: Stock GY Fortera 20" > Expectations

I have about 20000mi on my Cooper LTZs, Noise level not noticeable from stock. Ride, IMO is Much better good in the snow and rain. The Gas mileage did go down about 3-4 mpg and that is the only drawback but it is expected with a more aggressive tire. I think they call it rolling force/resistance.

You running the 275 with coil suspension and just the leveling kit, right? How much have you use the tire off-road? Any issues with rubbing, etc?

Re: Stock GY Fortera 20" > Expectations

$137/ea at NTB -all inclusive price for Forteras. Got 50000 miles out of original set and just below 4/32. Since it's my wife's commuter, this was a no- brainer.

I think I got my second set for $135 per tire at Discount Tire. Nice and quiet.
