Keeping in mind that we're driving a 4300lb 4x4 vehicle we are very happy with the performance of these tires. I've rated tread wear at a 3 because we're only 3000 miles into them and can't really say what they'll be like in another 10,000 or 20,000 miles. I've also rated the snow performance as a 3 even though we haven't had any snow yet. I'm not too concerned in this area anyway as I have a set of winter tires for that purpose.
They are a bit noisy but considering the fairly aggressive nature of the tread it's not overbearing or intrusive and, again, we are driving a 4300lb 4x4 truck.
All that being said would I recommend these tires? Definitely, yes!
Goodyear Fortera® HL tires are so bad they don't give you the option of them in the Model drop down menu.
Worst purchase I have ever made in tires. I traditionally buy Goodyear but the discontinued the style I had and this was their close replacement. The noise is so bad and loud I am taking in to see if they are defective. If they aren't I will have to spend another 1k on tires. How is it I am paying 2k for 4 tires???? Less than two months and 2 thousand miles on them and I am stuck with crap. I will never buy Goodyear again unfortunately. Buyers beware this tire is awful.
