The Firestones are what we have on our Commander and Liberty. This is the 3rd winter with them on the Commander and the 4th on the Liberty. Love these tires in the snow. Actually love these tires all year. In my opinion far superior to the stock Goodyears taht came on both vehicles.
I cant wait to ditch the GY's. I have already had one blow out the sidewall for no apparent reason and GY would not stand behind it and now I have one that is beating the road hard, sounds like a belt has broken in it. Unfortunately I still have about 15k to go before they are done.
My Forteras are gone tomorrow. I got 27k out of 3 of them and one still looks new. I have one that a belt broke in it way back with 10k on the Jeep. GY wouldn't replace it so I rode it out. That thing beats the hell out the road. I can't wait to ride smooth again.
Last set of Good Year anything that I will own, good riddance!
One of my original tires(right rear) blew the whole sidewall donut out going 5mph pulling out from a light which in turn screwed up one of my wheels. This with only 7k on the jeep.
GY would not stand behind the tire and neither would Jeep, That blow-out cost me nearly $500 to replace the wheel and the tire
My spare does not have RWL, only blackwall so it would not match the other 3 without turning them inside, These tires are directional so that would not work.
I had one tire that had a broken belt in it and was smacking the road horribly, so bad that I could not rotate it to the front, I was unable to drive the Jeep with that tire on the front. I always rotate my tires every 3k but I could not do that with this tire in the shape it was in so the tires wore prematurely. I had one rear that looked new, one that was wore completly out and slapping the road, and two front tires that obviously been on the front too long due to the rear tire issue.
I'm just glad they are gone. Like GY if you want to but I don't and won't.
Just picked up a set of five 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport Wheels with 245/75R17 tires (less than 1000 miles for $450!). I measured the backspacing on them and they have a tad bit more (maybe 1/8-1/4") than the factory Commander wheels. I really needed bigger tires to fill out my fender wells since...
I posted in the tires thread also. Thought general may be better spot. As I guess most know the standard size for 06 is 245/65/17
I need to spend money on good snows in Canada! So I’m trying to find someone who has good used, maybe an upsize? The factory size isn’t common and I can’t find any...
