I, too, have the 235/70/16 Goodyear Fortera's ... No comparison.

The stock is basically a very cheap tire and is undersized for the E.


The Goodyear Forteras roll smoother and quieter and look sensational - and the warranteed for 60,000 miles.

I get a lot of comments on the tires. This upgrade is the single, cheapest way to move towards a bigger SUV that looks like a Mid-Hummer.

Today, I parked next to a stock Element at the grocery store and the tire difference is really noticable. The Element large Wheel wells lend it to larger tires..

BFGoodyear g-Force 18 inchers (don't remember the other numbers). A set of 4 at America's Tire Store for about $440. WORTH the price as it goes around curves like it was on a rail!!
