Here's a post of mine from the past...
Tired of Tires! (Opinions please!)

Goodyear Fortera TripleTred at $145 x 4

**Also, would you get the tire certificates for an extra $82? These certificates would get a replacement tire in case of a blowout, damage from debris on road, etc.

Any opinions would be very appreciated as I want to get the tires put on hopefully this week.
I've got the Goodyear Forteras with Silent Armor. I paid close to $175 per tire about 2 years ago. They have been very good but lately they seem to be riding harder... it might just be the cold weather though. I'll be able to tell for sure once things start to warm up.

As for the tire insurance... I didn't think I needed it and 2 weeks after I got my tires, I hard a thump, thump, thump noise. I checked the tires and found what looked like a bolt in one of the rear tires. I took it back to the Goodyear shop and they took it out. Luckily it was just a fairly short screw with a hex head. After that I purchased the insurance. I figure I go to the occasional construction site and have a better chance of having a problem so it was worth it...
