Tires for my Envoy Denali...Recomendations?

I have an 06 Envoy Denali with the GoodYear Fortera (P245/60R18) tires with 22K miles and they are already going bald. I spoke to my service center and they tell me that they are soft times and the wear is normal. I disagree and think I might go to a GoodYear to see about warranty. But in the mean time, can I get some recomendation for tires from other owners? And have you experienced high wear problems with your Fortera tires?

Thanks!

My . I've NEVER had good experiences with GoodYear tires. They're overpriced and don't last worth a sh*t. I've seen the Forteras and personally I wouldn't even consider them.

IIRC, there aren't many choices in your size. I know this because I was looking at tire options for 18" wheels once.

I worked for Goodyear for 15 yrs. retail outlets ....
Call Goodyear customer assistance ... they will send you to and authorized dealer to have the tires inspected for wear etc....
They normally have a 60k of 70k warranty .... they will stand behind their product and give you a warranty consideration .. looks like you will have at least 50-65% credit towards another purchase.. let's just hope the tire dealer will want to do the paper work etc.... do you have any company owned outlets near you ?? (will have Gemini on the name) you'll have better luck at a company owned store .. the goodyear rep. will probably have a recommendation for you.

I've got an '02 Envoy SLE, and had a set of Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza tires put on about 8 months ago. They offer a great ride, excellent traction in the wet, and decent traction in the snow (if the A4WD is engaged). I really like these tires, and they compare to the Forteras (according to Tire Rack) Just my 2cents.

I recommend Michelin Cross Terrain SUV's for good wet/snow/road use. Don't know about availability in 18" though.

These forteras are crap I have 15K and the are almost shot. They are noisy and have no wet traction left. Probably going to replace them soon but dont think I should have to buy new tires at 15K.

I also have these on my Rainier and my Silverado. My brother runs them on his Suburban and his Ram pickup. They are a great tire!

I put Fortera's on my '02 TB LTZ, and although I thought the wear wasn't good (only got 45,000 from them, but 60,000 on original BF Goodrich's) they WERE a quiet, good handling tire.

I have since put a set of Yokohama Geolander's on, and like them a lot. Good in rain, snow, dry, and wear seems good too. The Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza are good tires too...I wouldn't hesitate using either of these.

Just my from experience.

Personally, 06VOY, if you only got 15K on those tires, I think there are other problems (air pressure, alignment, very aggressive driving style?). The worst tire going should get more than that in normal use.

Like I said above, I had the Fortera's on my TB, and got 45K.

Stay away from Goodyear tires, We run them on our cruisers(05-07 Ford Explorers) and we have to replace them every 10-15k miles. We patrol strictly Port Authority property-No Highways, Hot pursuits etc. We have a contract with Ford and Goodyear so we have to deal with it. I personally like Yokohama and Michelin, however I bought my Envoy 3 years ago with new Bridgetown Duelers H/T and they have kept up very well(30k miles). Just my 2 cents.
