Tires - 20" Goodyear Fortera HL

I have a 2014 JGC Overland that came equipped with the 20" Goodyear Fortera HL's. After only 24,000 miles, I'm down to 5/32 threads. My driving habits are mainly highway and I'm surprised these tires have worn so quickly. I recognize everyones driving styles are different but it seems I should have gotten a longer life from these tires. Anyone else experiencing this?

How long did your fortera tires last?

Mine still had 6/32 at 40K miles...but as BlckWK2 points out, there are some great discussions about alternatives in the Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires section above.

Why are you surprised they wore so rapidly? They are a very inexpensive tire.

They burn out pretty fast, you get what you pay for in this case...this is my second new Jeep since 2011, both came with the Fortera's...and both melted as fast...they are truly entry level tires...

I traded in my OEM tires on both my 2011 Limited and my 2015 Overland within the first 500 miles. Michelin LTX M/S 2's on Limited and below.

I have Michelin MS/2's on order. They've been back ordered since November. How do you like them!
