Westlake SV308 Tire Review & Rating

For drivers looking for a high-performance all-season tire at a cost that is lower than most any tire in this class, Westlake has the SV308 available. Designed for sport coupes, sedans and sporty SUV’s, the SV308 does have some nice features for a tire in this price range.

A silica-enhanced tread compound and directional tread pattern are built to optimize performance on dry or wet road surfaces. The tread features a lower rolling resistance, which can increase fuel economy for those who would like to save a bit at the pump.

Westlake SV308 Tire Reviews

Two circumferential grooves and unique V grooves combine to channel away water on rain soaked streets, while also reducing the risk of hydroplaning. The tire’s criss-cross grooves on the shoulder of the tire increase dry traction and cornering grip, as well as improve tire stability.

Inside the tire you’ll find two steel belted construction for added strength and better overall ride comfort. Available in H, V and W-speed rated sizes, the SV308 has a 360 UTQG rating and 24,000 mile warranty.

Pros

  • Dry and wet traction
  • Braking and acceleration performance is solid
  • Comfortable ride
  • Low price

Cons

  • Road noise
  • Warranty could be longer

Overall Thoughts

The SV308 represents pretty good performance at a lower price point among other tires in this class. You can expect decent overall dry and wet traction, and the cornering grip is respectful as well.

You may find a little extra road noise, especially as the tire ages, but this is generally the case with most cheap tires. Hey, you can always turn up the radio. We’d like to see a little longer of a mileage warranty as well.

Overall, for a very low costing tire it’s not a bad choice, especially when you factor in the dry performance.
