Federal Couragia M/T Tire Reviews
(Based on 51 Reviews)
I put these tires on my truck and 2 have already blown out within the first 2000 miles of being on the highway only. I do not recommend them at all and simple tire carries no warranty. So I am just stuck out.
haven't drove in wet conditions or had long enough to determine tread life.
So far from what I’ve seen of these tires they’re great decent ride low noise I haven’t got to test them in winter conditions.
I am very pleased with the tires. Haven't had them long enough for the tread life or winter traction to come into play.
I just purchased these tires almost a month ago. So typical of North Dakota I have had the opportunity to drive with them on Dry, Wet & Snowy roads. They did great on all three. I DO NOT mind a little tire noise & was expecting a lot more. I really like the aggressive tread design. They have a nice hum @ 25-35 mph. that seems to disappear at highway speeds. So conversation or listening to the radio is no problem. I was VERY impressed at how little weight was needed to balance them & the smooth ride at highway speed. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a well mannered a off road tire.
Great tire for what I need going through the swamp and great riding tire for highway dose make a noise but over all very satisfied
Recommended by dealer that these tires would be best bang for buck. Price was good and looked great when installed. Honeymoon over! Dealer failed to inform me they were manufactured out of country, would not warranty them, have recalls on certain DOT #'s, and are subject to belt separation and excessive vibration. Other reputable dealers have discontinued selling this product due to these issues. First tire separated in August bad enough to have sensors go off in truck. Replaced and paid out of my pocket. Additional two have separated and large bulges appearing on inside and outside of tire. Replaced and paid out of my pocket. Remaining tire out of first purchase has bulges appearing indicating tire separation. The two new tires just installed after two days are unbalanceable and truck shakes violently. Dealer then informs me that Federal will not warranty the tires as they are manufactured out of country and it was up to me to pursue the manufacturer. I am now stuck with two new tires which are unsafe and dealer won't stand behind. When talking to another reputable tire dealer they have discontinued selling this product due to issues and strongly recommended removing from truck. I've seen some good and bad reviews on this product, but it is the bad reviews and recalls that people need to be aware of. These are garbage tires and do pose risk to yourself and other motorists. Buyer beware.
Buyer beware!! Word of advice to anyone looking to purchase these tires new or used. DON’T. Purchased 4 new tires in summer 2017. First tire had the belts separate and bulge within 2 months. Wouldn’t warranty it. Put new one on and drove up until December. The 2 back tires had large bulges and belt separation and had to be replaced. The remaining tire from first purchase is now showing slight bulging on the inside indicating belt separation. The replaced tires are vibrating like a out of balance washing machine. Federal Tire will NOT warranty these tires as they are manufactured out of country. Garbage tire. Period.
98 F-150. Great tire for what I wanna do. I live and work on a farm and ranch. I have five miles of clay road I have to drive even when the mail man cant. Never have had a lick of trouble getting where I'm going. They are a bit noisy when you get out on the highway but that is a small con to a long list of pros I have for this tire. Also a very good price at the 245/75/r16 size.
For half the price of the name brands they can’t be beat! Look just as good as the Dick Cepek Mud Country.
i haven't driven a whole lot yet but these are nice tires. quiet , handle great. very good off road. price is great! highly recommend these tires.
Tires are great! First off shipping was fast! Got the tires the next day. So far tired have been great in snow and everywhere else. It does make noise but I don’t mind it.
Love these tires. I’m very happy with them.
These tires are awsome on and of road. Will keep buying them.
These where the first tires I ever bought and am kinda disappointed with them, but first let me tell you my story. I got these from les swab for $1400 I know I could have went somewhere else and got them cheaper but I wanted the warranty of les swab. I notice after just 2000 miles they were wearing fast and that kinda sucked how I just shelled out good money for them. Then I had 2 blow outs and after I noticed one had a bobble in it I pulled them off and are now sitting in my shop. I hear they have a recall out on them but I don’t know who to get ahold of. But I do have to say they are a good in the mud as far as I could tell. I wished I would have just got toyos
I sold my Toyo 35/1250/18 to go to 37/1250/18 and the cost for Toyo was going be over1900 cause I was getting 5 for a jeep. Got these all 5 under 1200 and love the look and everything about them.
Topical mud tires growl a little but aren't bad at all. Balance decent. Rough choppy concrete roads they hate. They've done good while out hunting. Snow and ice they spin a bit on take off till it gets rolling even light on the throttle but don't seem to terrible while rolling unless you get into it. So far for the money I'm pleased with them.
Best looking my group I have seen in a long time for the money federal is a good old company looks very much like buckshot but half the cost they do have a little road noise but not bad how way and wet conditions seem to be very good been in the mud Seems to be pretty good I will definitely buy another set can put on at Walmart for $80
They are more noisy than my Micky Thompson ATZ plus tires but, they grip better exspecially on wet roads. I slid all over the place with the ATZ plus tires.
Great tires have had these on a couple of my trucks now got them on my daily driver, very little road noise and very great offroad. Overall great handling on and offroad. Great buy and great customer service from simple tire.
The federal tires are great for you if you need off road traction but have to use your vehicle on the street as well. This is my second set of federal tires and the first set got roughly 55k miles of tread life. I'm running them on a 3/4 ton diesel truck that pulls trailer and sees it's share of pavement. These tires have great road manners but also excel in the mud. My truck isn't a pavement princess as I put it in nasty gumbo all the time during hunting season and these tires have got me to and from any place I have needed to go. Simple tire did an outstanding job with shipping them and their prices were much better than any other retailers I checked with. I will definitely use simple tire again and recommend the federal courage tire
I love em they were an AWSOME buy I thank you guys so much and definitely will be doing BUISNESS with you great people again.
tires are great and love them in the mud , pulls awesome and for the price they where i had to get them, love the roaring when im going down the road. only problem with them is there to skinny when going around a curve they get a lil wobbly. but other than that there awesome have ha d them for the winter so really dont know how they would do on snow and ice but i will find out
Good tire for the money balanced with sand bags for best ride not enuff time for tread life Will rotate every 5k for max life Wife is happy there on her f450
Good tire for the price. There on a 2001 2500hd ext cab long bed. They ride smooth, bite nicely off road, and have a nice humm on the highway. I only wish I went with a 285/70-16 because they aren't as wide as the rest of the 265/75-16 that I've had. Other than that there a great tire.
Do not do well in mud at all have them on a f-250 and they are wearing very quickly
Works great in sand in mud. Really light tires (had nitto mud grapplers before). Between the 2, I'd probably choose these over nitto. The only thing I don't like is after balancing them, they shake sometimes. I have a friend that has the same problem. Not sure what that is. And they don't look as wide as nitto but I guess that's just the sidewall. Overall, I'm pleased with the tires. Hopefully I took them to a bad tire shop and they can rebalance them and fix that shaking issue.
Tires are crap. Will never buy them again! Does not balance and wobbles after 8 tires.
Tires are about 60 percent already and very noise
I really enjoy the new tires and will be buying them again. Highly recommend to others. Great off road tires and they do wonderful on road.
Great experience would do business in the future, thanks again....
22000 miles rotate them every 5000 miles hardly notice any tread missing very good tire
Best M/T for the price out there. I run them on a 2000 f150 single cab 4x4. I put 80,000 miles on them and still had some tread left and they still pulled really good. Most of the time you don't even need 4WD. This is the only tire I will ever buy. These tires aren't meant for heavy trucks. They will wear out fast. These tires are perfect for light duty trucks.
I have owned 3 set's of these tires. They have been the best tire I've ever owned. They get louder the older they get. The last set I bought got out of round really bad but I didn't rotate them like I should have and my pitman arm was worn out. I have 36,000 miles on this last set. All around the best for the price.
Good gripping tire, put track and autocross because I'm in the woods almost every weekend. tread wear is kinda disappointing, but I read bad reviews about wear before I bought them. They'll take you through anything even when they're bald!
Great looking tire. Very aggressive. They look great on my 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. A little noisy on the pavement but that can be expected in such an aggressive looking tire. Overall very happy with the tires and with the purchase through Simple Tire.
These tires are great. My family has 3 vehicles with federal couragias and they are good tires.
These Tires are Awesome. I have not had them balanced at all and the road vibration is minimal. even at high speeds. I bought them in the dead of winter and was told to put about 500 miles on them and get the sidewalls broken in , and then have them balanced. A lot of bigger tires dont balance well, but these are good out the gate. I like a lot of road noise, these have pretty good noise level to me. they start to sing at about 35 mph. Tire size is 35". Very good aggressive look also. I am buying this tire again !!! Simple Tire was very easy to deal with also.
Tires were shipped promptly. Tread pattern looks great and ride noise is much less than expected. Have not had the tires long enough to comment on treadwear. Wet handling is better than expected also.
generally a great tire with good traction
I haven't had the tires that long, but I feel I can rate them pretty fairly on five out of the six categories. Dry and wet handling is good. No slipping or hydroplaning. (I tried) I gave the tire five stars on the winter traction because it is the best M/T tire I have used in winter driving. Although M/T tires are not really meant for the winter months, this tire has some siping which does help with ice. This tire works great in deep snow as well. It really grabs the snow well moving forward and backward. Side slippage isn't quite as good. Going around corners I could feel it slip a little, Then grab again. The ride / handling Isn't that good, but it is a M/T tire. The handling is a little squishy side to side and not quick on response. Typical for M/Ts. The ride isn't bad, but its a little hard if I run 65 PSI. The handling does increase with higher PSI. The ride noise is pretty loud. As I have said before, typical for M/Ts. With tread life, I cannot fairly rate these tires yet. I haven't had them long enough to know. I look forward to trying them in mud next week when the temperature raises high enough to make it muddy.
