Goodyear Fortera TripleTred
Follow-Up Review: 30,000 miles on tires
February 02, 2013
Still in love with these tires. Drove all over Europe in every kind of condition including at very high speeds on the Italian autostrada. Have used them in the US on the east coast in heavy rain, snow, high summer heat and cold winter temps. They don't flatspot and they are quiet and surefooted. Will definitely buy again for all my cars. If I get a new car, I may even tell the dealer to replace the OEM tires with these before I drive it off the lot.
Initial Review: 3,000 miles on tires

I purchased these to replace the OEM Goodyear Integra, which were average but slippery. I had hydroplaning issues with those and slid on acceleration from stops on wet pavement. However, these Fortera TripleTreds are AWESOME. I need a good all-weather tire for my Pilot that I could use in bad weather at high speed on the German autobahn. I put them on in October and have gone through the fall and winter with them happily. They provide outstanding traction and stability in all conditions. I first noticed that they didn't slip on wet leaves or paint stripes when driving in town in the fall. I have since riven them in heavy rain, ice, and snow in town and at over 105 MPH on the autobahn. They perform perfectly at all speeds and vehicle weights and give me total confidence. They brake well, corner well even when loaded, and they are sure-footed cat's paws even on ice and snow. Sure, every tire will slide some if you turn sharply on glazed ice or brake suddenly on black ice; but these grip better than anything I've ever driven, on any vehicle. I trust my family's safety with them even at very high speed. I have also done anti-terrorist performance driving training. These TripleTred tires are what I want on my vehicle for max performance that could literally save my family's life. Even with shipping, they were cheaper to buy from Tire Rack and ship to a military APO than to buy autobahn-capable SUV tires in Germany. I will definitely buy them again.
