Goodyear Fortera TripleTred Tire Review & Rating
Taking you through all types of weather conditions and getting you there quickly and safely is what the Goodyear Fortera TripleTred is designed to do. Engineered for all types of SUV’s, pickups and vans, you’ll find the latest in tire technology incorporated in the tread design.
The all-season tread compound includes PermaBlack which keeps the tire looking new throughout its lifetime. The tread also features the Severe Service Emblem that identifies the tire as meeting the industry’s severe snow and weather standards. This is not often found on other tire maker models.
As its name implies, there are three unique tread zones on this tire. The Dry Zone sports a reinforced outer tread with shoulder blocks that promote more stability and increased steering response ondry road surfaces.
The Wet Zone utilizes deep “Aquachutes” around the tread that are created to expel rain water away from the tire and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. An Ice Zone uses a siped and interlocking tread pattern to enhance grip and traction on snow or ice covered roads.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are reinforced with a nylon wrapped cord to go with a polyester cord body that adds strength and durability to the tire. They also create a better overall ride quality and a longer treadlife. Goodyear includes a 6-year or 60,000 mile tread warranty with this tire.
- Traction and handling on dry, wet and snow covered surfaces is excellent
- Above average steering response and control
- Riding comfort is surprisingly smooth for this type of tread design
- Treadlife warranty is among best in this class
- Would like to see just a little less road noise
There are a number of good reasons to like this Goodyear tire. The all-season traction and Severe Service Emblem adds more confidence and makes it easier to drive in rain, snow and stormy weather. The tire simply gets you where you need to go. The steering response is precise, keeping you in control regardless of weather outside.
Ride comfort is good despite the road noise you get with a tread design such as this. The noise is not severe by any means, but a little more noticeable than on other models. The 60,000 mile warranty on this tire is one of the best you will find for models in this class, making this tire a great choice for year round all-season driving needs.
