Review of the Federal Couragia M/T Tires

The Federal Couragia MT tires are a good tire for the money if you are in the market for a semi aggressive tread design that offers above average traction in various conditions offroad will still maintaining a mostly quiet ride on the paved roads.  The tread design offers good mud traction with the a combination of large, stepped and siped lugs spaced out by voids large enough to assist with the self cleaning of mud and debris.  Aired down the 3-ply sidewalls flex good.  Incorporated into the sidewalls are protected by a extra rubber compound on across it's sidewalls.  In snow and sand this tire does a little better than average when compare to other mud terrain tires.  Highway manners are better than expected from a mud tire with less than moderate noise level and with the assistance of sipes in the lugs has better traction on wet or icy roads than other MT tires without the benefits of sipes.  Tread life is better than average.  Cost is on the low side of mud terrain tires.  Size availability is pretty good with sizes up to LT 235/85R16.

Federal Tire was founded in Taiwan in 1954. Technical cooperation with Bridgestone Corporation from 1960-1979 and with Sumitomo Rubber Industries (Dunlop Tires) from 1981-2000 has given Federal the necessary and strong technical capabilities and know-how to produce our own brand tires today – Federal Tires.
