Goodyear Wrangler SR-A Tire Review & Rating
The Goodyear Wrangler SR-A all-season highway tire is mainly used for original equipment on a wide variety of new pickup trucks. However, it is also a popular replacement model for drivers of SUV’s and crossovers as well.
The all-season tread compound utilizes Goodyear’s WetTrac technology to go with a symmetrical tread pattern to provide added traction on wet surfaces, as well as on gravel, mud and light snow. Wide circumferential grooves and zig-zag sipes around the tread evacuate water from under the tire and reduce the risk of hydroplaning, although this is not a strength for this tire.
Dry pavement grip is enhanced through the tire’s independent tread blocks, lateral grooves and wider contact patch. The SR-A maintains a quiet ride with its tread design that is designed to resist vibrations and lower outside road noise, which is an area frequently mentioned in driver reviews as one this tire does very well.
Inside the tire you will find two high tensile steel belts that provide added strength and durability. Goodyear has created this model in P-metric and LT sizes, as well as heavy duty D and E load ranges. You’ll find 15-20 inch sizes available, and it comes backed with up to a 50K mile warranty.
- Traction on dry pavement, gravel and dirt is very good
- Tires ride comfortably and have low road noise
- Crisp steering response
- Wet and winter handling could be better
- Treadlife has been an issue for some drivers
Although the SR-A is mainly used as original equipment on a variety of pickups, it has become a popular choice for all types of trucks and SUV’s. Traction and grip on dry pavement is very good for this model. Steering response is quick, and ride quality is equally as impressive.
However, far too many have complained about wet surface handling, as well as traction on snow and ice. It’s simply lacking when compared against other top models in this class. A shorter than expected treadlife has also been an issue for some drivers in ratings on this model.
Overall, we like this tire for its comfort and dry surface performance, but if you drive on wet roads the majority of the time, or live in an area which sees quite a bit of snow and ice, you may want to look at a different tire. Tires like the Yokohama YK-HTX or Michelin Defender LTX M/S would provide higher performance and make a better option.
