Goodyear Fortera
 
I have a 2005 WK. It had bald Goodyear Wrangler HP tires and was able to go through mud, water, rocks, you name it. I see so many posts talking about how bad the Goodyear Fortera tires are. I just purchased them and from what I can tell, they are way better than the Wrangler HP tires I had on before. Ya some of you guys are right they are not the best for 2 foot of snow, water, or mud. For my everyday driver, they are more than acceptable, adding that I do bring my Jeep off-road. For anybody who is looking for great performing tires on road that can handle your weekend adventures, the Fortera tire is worth looking into. :moon:

They are not a cheap tire though. My dad has theses on his Acadia and let me tell you I was amazed when he got a nail in his (no repairable) $303 to replace.

mediocre tire at best. There are many tires far better for less money. Dest AT is what I recommend; far better ride, handling, steering, traction than the Fortera.

These tires are just ok. stock on my 09 4.7 QD2. Not bad on dry roads. Just not stable enough in the snow. Had Dest a/t on my 99 4.7. Great all around tire. Will go with Dest a/t or General Grabber at2 on my 09 when the Fortera's wear out.

FWIW
I'm not for or against them, but its not fair to compare the ones you can buy from goodyear to the oem's . I've heard poor remarks about oem alot, and the goodyear salesman went on for a good 5 min about how they are different "the factory uses cheaper compounds to keep costs down"

well they're the same brand, and not only do the Goodyear Wrangler HPs come stock on some vehicles, the Goodyear Forteras come stock on a lot of GM models as well so I don't believe it is the tire compound.

I'm probably one of those guys you saw talking bad about the Fortera's. I didn't get a chance to test them in the snow, I just didn't care for the tread pattern that much, and wanted to run a wider tire. The Fortera's looked a little too highway for me.

I pulled mine with less than 200 miles and went with a 265/65/17 Toyo Open Country AT. I ran the Toyo's on my last SUV and loved everything about them.

I sold the Fortera's to someone with a Durango, and he got a great deal out of it.
