Goodyear Fortera HL Edition
Initial Review: 72,500 miles on tires
December 07, 2012

These tires came from the factory on my 2008 Explorer. I work in the construction industry as a project manager. Between the many miles of commuting and driving on job sites I have been able to put these tires through the ringer. The dry traction is great. Wet traction is great. I drive on job sites after rain showers and have never had a problem getting stuck. This both with and without 4WD being engaged. I've been in mud and ruts that were deep enough to bottom out my vehicle. I can't complain about these tires. They have served their purpose and I have almost 75,000 miles on my vehicle.

There is a little bit of tire noise, but that is common for this type of tire. It is not louder than any other set of tires I have had on my previous SUV's. I would recommend these tires.
