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
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

pretty good job. The ride is comfortable and smooth on the highway, and one of the best things is the lower
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.
