Federal Couragia A/T Tire Review & Rating
Although the Federal Couragia A/T tire has been around since 2005, it remains one of the better selling value-priced off-road tires sold today. Built for drivers of all types of light trucks, SUV’s, Jeeps and other 4×4’s, the Couragia A/T is designed for rugged off-road use, while being mild-mannered enough for everyday driving on the street.
Federal uses a tougher silica tread compound and unique tread pattern that is created to deliver dependable off-road traction. Wider angled tread grooves and voids help with grip on dirt, sand, light mud and gravel, which is an area this tire does a solid job at. While arguably not a serious rock climber or mud bogger, it offers very good performance overall.
On the highway and other on-road surfaces, the Federal A/T features multi-angled zig-zag sipes around the tread that enhance grip on wet roads, as well as on snow and ice. Four circumferential grooves aid in channeling away water and reducing the risks of hydroplaning.
Federal has a range of 15-17 inch sizes in both LT and non-LT models. With a 480 A B UTQG rating this tire should give you 40-50K miles of use. More on that below in our overall thoughts. A limited tread warranty is also provided by Federal.
- Good off-road performance
- Dry and wet traction
- Highway handling
- Lower cost
- A little extra road noise on the highway
- Treadwear could be better
When it comes to a cheap all-terrain tire, the Federal Couragia AT has been a popular choice for several years. Performance off-road is quite good with the exception of rock climbing and deep mud, but that’s not what this tire was really designed for.
You may find a little more road noise at highway speeds than you do on some other bigger name brand models, but with its aggressive tread pattern you might expect it. Treadwear is likely the biggest area of concern. We’ve heard a few drivers speak to getting 30k miles out of the tires.
Overall, as a lower cost all-terrain offering, the Couragia A/T delivers average every day performance. Although it doesn’t stand out from the crowd in any one particular area, we give it a rank in the middle of the value-priced class of AT tires.
