The Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT tire is a solid product, but there are better choices and even better values. CR's test results show this latecomer to our tire program ranks midpack among 24 competitive models.

The Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT delivered well-rounded performance for confident use in all weather conditions. It also gets a Very Good score for tread life based on our exclusive vehicle road test completed in West Texas. Our projections match the 65,000-mile treadwear warranty.

More on Shopping for Tires

The overall score for the Wrangler Fortitude HT and the other tires in our ratings is based on more than a dozen tests, including braking and handling on dry and wet roads and evaluating a tire’s resistance to hydroplaning, or skimming on standing water. The Wrangler Fortitude HT performed well on our snow-covered track and had good stopping performance on ice at a local ice rink.

We reviewed the tire on our 2016 Chevrolet Silverado test vehicle, and the ride was comfortable and quiet. Further, the Wrangler Fortitude HT has relatively low rolling resistance as measured by a dynamometer, a reflection of a tire’s contribution to a vehicle's overall fuel economy.

Goodyear.com describes the tire as offering all-season and all-terrain qualities. For more serious all-terrain application, we recommend shoppers consider the Goodyear Wrangler TrailRunner AT. It scored well in our tests with good all-weather traction, and it’s designed for better off-road grip. But the trade-off is a lower 50,000-mile tread life based on our test. (See all of our tire ratings, including all-season, all-terrain, and winter/snow truck tires.)

The Wrangler Fortitude HT is a competent tire but proved to be a questionable value. We paid $198 per tire in our test size; Goodyear’s suggested retail price was $203 at the time of this report. That makes it the most expensive truck all-season model in CR's ratings.

Based on our experience buying hundreds of tires a year, prices vary and there are often sales and rebates. This is a good reminder that it's worth shopping around for the best deal.
