Fortera with SilentArmour Technology GoodYear

The Fortera featuring SilentArmor Technology is Goodyear's premium Highway All-Season light truck tire designed to provide pickup and SUV drivers with the quiet comfort of a passenger car and rugged utility of a light truck. The Fortera featuring SilentArmor Technology is designed to blend utility, strength, comfort and style while providing traction on dry and wet roads, as well as in light snow.

On the outside, the Fortera featuring SilentArmor Technology has a longwearing tread compound molded into a tread design that enhances traction and ride comfort while reducing noise levels. Staggered circumferential grooves and curvilinear sipes and grooves are integrated into the tread design to provide the biting edges that enhance year-round traction. The tire's shoulder design and sidewall offer a combination of style and ruggedness that complements the vehicle's image.

Goodyear's SilentArmor Technology features an Armor Zone to provide rugged toughness. It consists of twin high-tensile steel belts reinforced by a layer made with DuPont KEVLAR cord to combine strength with comfort, Goodyear's Durawall sidewall rubber compound to help resist punctures, scuffing and abrasion, and a Rim Guard protector that helps protect wheels from accidental curb damage.

The Fortera featuring SilentArmor Technology also has a Comfort Zone that uses a super-shock absorbent layer of rubber sandwiched between the tread and steel belts (providing an average of 20% more cushion than standard SUV/LT tires) to help insulate the vehicle from vibration and rough road conditions, providing a smoother, more comfortable ride.

The tire's structure includes a polyester cord body to help enhance ride comfort.

Price: $1.00
Pros: Aggressive looks, decent ride, good handling on dry pavement.
Cons: Horrendous while cornering on wet pavement!
Recommended? No

Comments: These tires came new on our 2012 Liberty. The ride and handling is decent on dry pavement.

On wet pavement, their fine on going straight, but the rearend slides out while cornering on wet pavement at reasonable speeds. I cannot recommend this tire as a result.

GoodYear Fortera Silent Armour
Pros: Quiet and smooths out bumps in the road effectively
Cons: lower mpg's.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: On my 99 GC I had Goodyear SRA's but switched to this tire before last winter. Great snow and rain traction. Quieter ride overall. Definitely a good tire with bumps in the road as it smoothed out bumps. It made my 99 GC a completely different ride on the highway. I would buy this tire again for this vehicle.
