The Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT® C-Type is a premium SUV road tire that has already been fitted to several new vehicles not yet on the market. The Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT® C-Type debuted as an all-season road tire in early 2014. It is currently widely used as original equipment on vehicles such as the Ford F150 and several other crossovers, SUVs, and trucks dating back to 2016. This Goodyear offering has a host of features including a fuel-saving tread compound, a reduced vehicle noise profile, long service life, and an aesthetic appearance that Goodyear describes as "tough."
Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT® C-Type longitudinal grooves and deep sipes increase traction; the tread pattern is optimized to reduce noise levels, and a special compound reduces rolling resistance.
Goodyear is strengthening its position in other segments as well, and it was announced in Dallas that the Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT® C-Type road tires have been available in additional sizes for commercial vans. “We listened to customers and realized that we could meet the growing demand,” said Mr. Dwyer.
More than 600,000 full-size commercial vans have been sold in the US in the past two years, he said, and the Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT® C-Type is the perfect fit for this segment because of its durability and capacity to handle increased loads. In addition, the tires also help to reduce noise levels, and the multiple grip edges have improved traction on snow.
Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT® C-Type. Goodyear performed better than expected in the early tests and was clearly better than the M / T tires. The 4-rib pattern, closely spaced blocks, and deep sipes allow the tread to grip and hold snow long enough for effective acceleration and braking. In the traction test, Goodyear outperformed both off-road tires, but they still couldn't reach the winter tires.
The high tractive effort, fast acceleration. Average braking properties. Good steering response, but the grip on the front axle is quickly lost at high lateral cornering loads. If the rear wheels are in a skid, traction recovers very slowly.
The tire's tread compound has been engineered with lower rolling resistance to improve fuel efficiency, while the tread pattern has a symmetrical design with circumferential shoulder blocks and an uninterrupted center rib for improving handling and stability on dry roads.
Tire Review Deep grooves and wide circumferential grooves are said to improve traction on wet roads, as well as snow and ice, although this is one area this model has to deal with. Inside, two high-strength steel bands rest on a polyester cord jacket. These combined design elements also help reduce road noise levels and increase driving comfort.
The Wrangler Fortitude HT® C-Type is available in sizes 265 / 70R16 through 275 / 65R18 in a T speed class. Goodyear includes a 65,000-mile lifetime warranty.
- A tire that can be used under any season.
- Low inside the vehicle noise.
- The high comfort during the ride itself.
- Might have a limited quantity of sizes.
- Not the best snow and ice traction of the tire.
Reliable grip in sand and mud
This tire is characterized by good cross-country ability on soils with reduced load-bearing capacity. They are provided by the design of the shoulder areas. This part of the tread has an open design. But unlike the center of the tread pattern, the blocks located here have more massive dimensions. A significant part of these tread elements is located on the sidewalls, forming numerous grip edges on them. This design feature manifests itself most clearly when driving on earthy and sandy soils with an increased level of moisture, as well as in deep snow, providing the tire with reliable grip on such types of surfaces.
Sometimes less is more
SoundComfort technology ensures a quieter and more comfortable ride by reducing the noise level inside the car by 50% *.
To hear a noise at different volume levels, click the corresponding icons on the right side of the page. The SoundComfort tires have a built-in sound barrier. This acoustic barrier reduces tire vibration and dampens the internal noise of your vehicle while driving, which reduces in-cab noise in half compared to conventional tires *
What's the bottom line? A quieter, more comfortable ride for you and your passengers.
While driving in a car, many factors affect the noise level: wind, speed, road surface condition, running engine, noises in the structure, as well as tires. One of the main sources of noise in tires is resonance in the air cavity, which occurs due to vibration of the air inside the tire and is transmitted to the vehicle structure.
Goodyear SoundComfort technology directly reduces resonance within the tire air cavity.
The choice is clear
The advantage of SoundComfort technology is that the increased comfort level does not lead to a decrease in performance and other characteristics. These tires have the same warranty as standard tires, the tires can be repaired and the performance is just as good - the only difference is that these tires are ... much quieter.
These tires are produced in winter and summer versions.
