Gladiator QR700 SUV Tire Review & Rating
As a value-priced tire, the Gladiator QR700 SUV is designed to provide all-season traction with a smoother and more comfortable ride quality. Built for all makes and models of SUV’s and pickups, the QR700 SUV is ideally suited for budget-conscious drivers who are looking for a capable tire at a price that won’t break the bank.
Gladiator uses their all-season tread compound and symmetric tread design that delivers solid grip on dry pavement. Larger outside shoulder blocks add to cornering stability, which is a plus for this tire. The zig-zag continuous center rib quickens steering response and adds to braking performance.
Four wide circumferential grooves aid in evacuating water from under the tread and increasing wet traction, while reducing the risk of hydroplaning. Although this is an all-season tire that handles light amounts of snow, it is not a winter tire. Traction in deep snow, ice and hardpack is predictably poor.
Gladiator offers a range of 16-18 inch sizes for today’s SUV’s and pickups, and all sizes come with a T-speed rating. The tires’ 520 AA UTQG rating means this model should provide you with 40K-55K miles from the tread. The QR700 SUV comes with a limited tread warranty.
- Dry and wet traction is a plus
- Good handling and cornering stability
- Smooth comfortable ride
- Value for the money
- Deep snow, ice and hardpack is problematic
Gladiator may not be a household name for some, but they are becoming more widely known for making some very good budget-priced tires. (Their X-Comp M/T tire performs as well as many of the bigger name brand tires) This QR700 SUV is well-suited for everyday back and forth driving or adding to your vehicle before selling it.
The ride is smooth, comfortable and more quiet than you might expect due in part to the optimized pitch tread sequence. Treadlife has shown to be good on this tire, which we’ve heard numerous drivers mention as being a positive.
Overally, Gladiator has built a solid performing tire in the QR700 SUV. While arguably not up to the likes of a Michelin Defender LTX M/S, this model simply does a very good job overall that should satisfy the needs of any driver looking for a basic all-season tire.
