I had to get them in the dodge specified size in order to have them mounted by Wal-Mart with free rotate and balance for the life of the tire. They are replacing a pair of Westlakes in 245/45 r 18 that were on the car when I bought. The Westlakes had a lot of tread at the time but are just shy of the wear bars now 34k miles later

Just about the one month mark . These are quiet,smooth and sticky. Ive pushed the limit on dry pavement and they GRIP quite well. Ive had to switch them to the front And put a pair of Vercelli Viento on rear(because dealers insist on mounting new to rear).Pushed them a bit in wet weather and they really do the job of moving the water.
Ive done bit of research on Fortune tires and Im really impressed they are engagd inalot of cooperative R and D on tire tread compounds and designs nd seem to be heavily influenced by, or cooperatiing with, Yokahama. These tires are made with a nano compound that I THINK was developed by Yokahama.
If these spark your interest at all Id encourage you to visit the Fortune tire website or google nano tread compound.(more to come)

Finally got to test wet traction performance with these the other day: Extremely heavy downpour on Saturday after in very light traffic on the By-pass freeway(relatively new asphalt repave). I got the RT up to 85 and both pairs seemed to have NO trouble moving water out of the tread..not the slightest hint of hydroplaning. Since visibility near zero I didnt push it any further and since it was a passing thunderstorm pavements were dry at my destination soI couldnt find a wet empty parking lot to test wet braking My wife loves how quiet these treads are
