Goodyear Wrangler SR-A Review
An all-season tire designed specifically for modern crossovers and SUVs, the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A is built for grip with a focus on wet roads.
- Amazing wet traction
- Above average winter grip for an all-season
- Dry weather performance and cornering
- Impressive reported tire life from owners
- A bit loud for an all-season
- Tread warranty could be better
In fact, the Wrangler SR-A looks so purpose-built for wet weather, with plenty of sipes, that one could almost confuse it for a winter tire.
Looking at the surface of the tire, each individual tread block features two zig-zag sipes, designed for extra wet-weather grip. These also do give the tire above-average grip on snow and ice. Impressed as we are, we still don’t advise this as a full all-year tire for those in the snow belt. (Note: We always recommend true winter tires).
These same grooves, cut into each tread block are designed to come together under cornering to add more structure to the tire. As a result, it offers a surprising level of cornering confidence in dry weather conditions as well.
Like any all-season tire, the Wrangler SR-A features several circumferential grooves that run the full length of the tire. These are designed to dissipate water and prevent hydroplaning.
As mentioned, the tire really shines in wet weather performance, so those in rainy areas like the North West should take a serious look. While the added tread features help, perhaps the biggest difference-maker is that it’s made with a specific tread compound that’s designed to deliver superior grip in the wet.
Beyond all that, when you’re not asking for any real sort of performance from a tire, the Wrangler SR-A delivers there too. It’s quiet and comfortable – although we noted it does seem a bit louder than other similar tires, perhaps due to the plentiful amount of grooves. Still, that’s by no means a deal breaker.
In terms of tire life, it’s warrantied for 50,000 miles. That’s not overly high by modern standards, although most drivers report getting 60,000 miles on a set or more.
