Westlake SA07 Tire Review & Rating

The Westlake SA07 is built to provide higher performance when you want it, but also give you a smoother and more comfortable ride for those times you need it. Designed for drivers of sport coupes, sedans and crossovers, the SA07 is budget-priced as well.

An all-season silica-enhanced tread compound features a lower rolling resistance for both increased wet grip and better fuel efficiency. Larger outside shoulder blocks and deeper tread grooves are designed to provide improved cornering performance and stability, although we would like to see more from the tire.

Westlake SA07 Tire Reviews

Four wider and deeper circumferential grooves add to wet traction by evacuating water from under the tread and reducing hydroplane risks. The tire's continuous center rib adds to steering response and creates more stability.

Inside the tire you'll find two steel belted construction with a polyester cord body for increased strength and better ride quality. Westlake has added a rim protector to help prevent accidental damage to expensive wheels. Sizes are available from16-19 inches.

Pros

  • Dry and wet traction
  • Smooth and comfortable ride
  • Low cost

Cons

  • Road noise
  • Cornering performance

Overall Thoughts

This tire reminds us of similar models like the Riken Raptor ZR or Sumitomo HTR Z in many ways. That said, the SA07 does not offer the same cornering performance as the other two, but still does a pretty good job. The ride is comfortable and smooth on the highway, and one of the best things is the lower price.

Road noise is a bit more pronounced on this tire than others in this class, but there's always a tradeoff for getting such a lower cost tread. Overall, if budget is a bigger priority for you then this tire may be a good choice.
