My Outlook is at 42K miles. I have alot of tread left on them. I estimate that I will make it to 55K miles on the OEM tires.

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

How can you guys stand the road noise and hard ride from the Forterras with that many miles on them?

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

We put some miles on the new tires (college visit, Purdue ) and they are nice, smooth and quiet. Now I can hear all the other noises in the vehicle .

Seriously, just normal vehicle noise like wind, weatherstrip flex, stuff like that. These are the tires I got http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....oModel=Outlook XR FWD&autoModClar=

Please report back with your findings after putting some miles on the Conti's. I've been disappointed by the OE Conti's I had on my Pursuit (aka Cobalt/G5) and likewise for our Montana SV6. While the Fortera's haven't been the best in the rain, they've been very smooth and I haven't noticed any road noise (yet).

Would like to hear how the Conti's make out.

The Toyo's as mentioned by the OP are looking like a great option too.
