Re: Goodyear Fortera's in the snow?

I live in NH. I dont use the Forteras in the snow. I did when i first got my WK and they had about 7/32nds tread on them still pretty meaty and i thought they sucked in the snow. I am currently running Bridgestone Blizzaks this year. Its my first time with snow tires on my wk and we have not had any snow since i put them on last week. I always manage to get free used tires so last winter i used some cheap ATs i got from work that did better in the snow then the fortera and then sold them in the spring. I put some michelins on this summer and tossed them a few weeks ago for my nearly new used Blizzak snow tires. In the spring i will put forteras back on for summer until i can afford a new set of AT tires.

After having worked at Town Fair Tire and Now working for a Chevy Dealership i would highly recommend the Toyo AT Open Country if you have the money for them. The Terra Grapplers are a good tire but they wear out fast and i hear they are OK in the snow.

I personally want the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor. They have a 50k mile warranty, they are pretty rugged looking with being an MT look, kevlar reinforced and snow flake rated for severe snow driving like snow tires.

Reading now that you got the Toyos you should be more then happy with them. They are a great tires and if you keep them rotated they should last you a good long time. They are always an option in the back of my head if i choose to not buy the GYs.

They Toyos are also very smooth rolling and quiet, though they will get you through just about anything.
