The Fortera SL Edition is Goodyear’s Street/Sport Truck All-Season tire developed in large rim diameter sizes for crossover and sport utility vehicles, as well as light-duty pickup trucks. The Fortera SL is designed to blend style and performance with year-round traction, even in light snow.
Fortera SL tires feature a longwearing tread compound molded into a directional tread design with a continuous center rib that promotes even treadwear while large wrap-around shoulder blocks provide responsive handling. Circumferential and lateral grooves help pump water to resist hydroplaning while sipes in the tread block increase the number of biting edges to enhance traction in light snow. The tire’s internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon to combine durability with high-speed capability.
