Initial Review, 20,000 Miles on Tires
October 24, 2009

Installed on an 08 Escape with the new intelligent 4WD. First thing we noticed was the quiet ride. First test was trying to get it stuck in the mud, the tires come with free wench out, and with mud to the doors and the traction control turned off I floored it, mud went everywhere and the truck pulled strait out. Then it was on to the Apache Trail through the Superstition Mtns, very smooth on on the wash boards and truck was always sure footed. We then took it to Sedona, ARZ and did some off-roading. The truck was sure footed and there was no tire slipping going from rock to rock. Loose gravel and pebbles were no problem. On a drive through the mountains in CAL with a foot of snow on a dirt road the truck maintained 45MPH and the Low Traction light never even flickered. Just a note here, these tires do have the severe snow rating. We drove through a summer rain storm in ARK and the truck was again sure footed. There was standing water on the roadways and we maintained 70MPH. Average MPG is 19/23.

WOW... WOW... 1 more...WOW !!! Just got them yesterday (33/12.5/15's/Kevlar) & they have passed every test w/flying colors... Replaced the "Old-Tread" w/the new "Kevlar" & could not be happyer, We could hardly hear them at all @ 75 mph on the Hwy ... Had a "Monsoon" in the afternoon & went for a "Test-Ripp"... Great over standing water on road... Than we went to the local wash & my 98 GRAND CHEROKEE (ZJ) 5.2 AWD/Auto has never went up that stuff as easy before... They "Dig" & "Float" over the softest sand... Than we headed for the MUD...WOW !!! I thought the old MT/Rs did good, @ 20 lbs, but the "New Tread" @ 36 lbs is WAY BETTER... I hardly hit the skinny-pedal & they were "Flinging" & they track fantaitic, No "Drift" in 6 to 12++ inches of "Sloppy Mud" (That same mud filled the old tread to the point of no control & my JEEP would go where it wanted) We had total control... I would guess with the "Extra Tread" down the center of the tire these will last about 3X longer or more than the old tread... We have 1 more test left for today, "Aired Down" on the "Rocks" (Witch is where we spend most of our WHEELIN time) & if they handle the rocks like the old tread I know I will be very pleased... (I will up-date when we get back if I can) As acting VP. of the local Off-Road club, I will tell everyone I know that these are "The Ones" to buy if they are in need of "New Shoes" for ANY of thier rig's...WOW !!!

Great tire for all types of road coditions. Best tire I have owned for snow covered roads. Noticable drop in fuel economy when these tires replaced the factory installed Goodyear SR-As. Treadwear has been lower than expected, based on current wear I expect to be replacing these tires in 4-months at 36,000 miles.

2000 Ford F250, 3" lift. Extended cab, 8' box, topper 8" higher than cab and LOADED with carpentry tools. Unbelievable wear despite weak attempts at rotating. Super Duty has solid front axle and is notorious for being hard on front tires. At 84K, I still have some tread left to use up. Best snow traction I have ever experienced, almost don't need 4wd, but live in MN. Tires are relatively quiet. I had them professionally siped when new, gaining even better ice traction. Some told me siping would cause premature wear, but at 84K, I am elated. Never had a truck tire with decent tread over 50K miles. I run at 85psi always, and truck is always loaded and overloaded. I have overloaded the weight capacity on occasion without issue. I will buy these until they quit making them. The nice part is, with that kind of mileage it won't be too often!

Initial Review, 8,000 Miles on Tires
March 13, 2014

Just moved to Michigan this year from the south... Surprise! Worst winter in 20+ years. I bought these tires as a possible alternative to dedicated winter tires due to the high mileage my car sees. A lot of other reviewers were claiming 70,000+ miles and that sounded great with a tire that could handle winter weather. (they have the mountain/snowflake on the side) I braced myself for a noisy, bumpy ride as the car came with a Michelin touring tire originally. I can honestly say, these tires are quieter and ride almost as smoothly as the Michelin's. That said, the Michelin's were worn when I replaced them so I don't hold the noise against them. These tires have never left me stuck or stranded and I didn't usually spin or slide unless I was trying to. A few times I had to disable the traction control to let them spin and clear. This was only in slow speed situations like cutting fresh tracks in 8+ inches of heavy wet snow. Not sure you can ask anymore for a longer treadlife all-terrain in my opinion. My biggest complaint in the 8,000+ miles I have had them comes from the fact that they tend to "catch" grooves or seams in the highway which can be unnerving when the road is icy. I noticed it the first day I had the tires and now I have gotten more used to it and it is less of an issue but at first it did get my attention. Overall, I would and already have recommend these tires. Not the best winter solution, not the best off-road solution, definitely not the best for mpg's or handling performance. Just a really good mix of life, traction, and so far low noise.

I replaced Goodyear Wranglers O.E.M. that had 21,000 miles and couldn't believe the difference. I have since put 55,000 on these Bridgestone and am in the process of looking to replace them. I believe they are rated for 50,000 miles and since it's not my daily driver anymore I've waited and pushed them through the winter. I'm looking at Michelins that are rated to get 70,000. Only because rating difference and I recently bought a set of Michelins for my car and I'm extremely impressed with them.

Though have not driven enough to comment on some conditions or tread-wear they are stable and quiet and responsive, and seem to be better on coasting i.e. rolling resistance. They are a little-more SUV-like than previous tires I've had on this Wrangler but I have driven them extensively in rain and snow and they were fine even in RWD. When I finally needed 4WD they were great. I kept pushing into deep snow until finally I couldn't move but only when the Jeep was in snow up to its undercarriage. Would definitely buy again. There seemed to be some not-so-great reviews. I corner aggressively and enjoy driving in rain and snow and these tires have been super.

I just wish I had received decals, to promote these baby`s. Tires are installed on my Jeep rock crawler.

this tire has gotten me out of a few bad places where the original Goodyear SRA's failed. Have put 60,000 km on them with proper rotation every 10,000 km's and tread remains even. Should have no problem getting another 20,000 km,s out of them. Will be going back for another set and will be replacing the Wrangler SRA,s on my wifes jeep with a set of firestone Destination A/T,s.

When I was looking at new tires everyone was pretty much in agreement that these were 'the' tires to get for a Jeep. And they were right. I have been extremely happy with them. Half of my daily drive is on gravel (roughly 16 miles) and it amazes me how well the tread has held up, as gravel just eats the tread off most tires.

I don't think that there is any additional road noise on the highway than the stock light truck tires my Jeep originally came with, which surprised me since these have a much more aggressive tread.

I'm getting ready to buy a new set for this coming winter and by then I should have close to 45,000 miles on these.

I drive about 75 percent of my miles on the highway. But the 25% I drive off road will shred a regular tire in no time flat. I drive on caliche roads with various size rocks and sometimes huge holes. Most 6 and 8 ply tire i have tried over the years would only last about 20,000-22,000 miles. I put 55,000 on a set of Wrangler SilentArmor 6 ply tires and still had a good 8-10,000 miles left when I got a new truck. I never even had a flat even though I regularly would drive over cactus, mesquites and sharp rocks. As long as Goodyear keeps making these tires, they have a loyal customer.

I drive a 97 Grand Cherokee ZJ with 4" of lift and installed these tires in a 31x10.50x15 size. They've exceeded my expectations in every respect. They're quite for an aggressive tread pattern on the highway, handle well for the tread pattern in highway driving, and perform excellently off road. I primarily use my Jeep for off road use but it does drive upwards of 200 highway miles one way to different parks. I've also used it to travel to work when the weather is too bad to travel in my other vehicle. They handle very well in the snow, packed or deep, and even do well on ice. For a tire that's not a mud terrain tire, they do surprisingly well in the mud but I wouldn't say it's a replacement for a traditional mud terrain. I haven't had them in sand so I cannot comment on their sand capabilities. I only have about 5k miles on them so far but they seem to be wearing well and evenly, if they're even wearing at all yet. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a good all around tire for a vehicle that sees a multitude of uses. I'll most definitely be purchasing another set when the time comes.

This is the 5th set of tires I've had on this truck. It's a company vehicle that I've driven since it was new. I drive in all weather conditons, and all off-road conditions for the work I do. Putting these tires on was like geting beefed-up shocks. It handles and corners like a mid-sized sedan now. The traction is excellent in all conditions. We had a big snow storm with 35deg temps yesterday, which left 3" of icy slush on the roads. No problem. Today, the temp dropped to 22deg, so the now the slush has frozen solid. No problem. Very happy with these tires, just glad I didn't have to pay for them myself:)

I live in the mountains of Colorado off a private road that sees significant snow. We also pull a camper in all 4 seasons, in all kinds of weather. These tires have yet to fail us in getting where we want to go. At 50k miles I still have enough tread to get me up the hill to my house in snow (it mid January now). I fully expect to get 60-65k miles out of these. Hands down the best tires I’ve ever had.

These came standard on my Patriot, and while I'm usually not impressed by Goodyear tires (my wifes 2004 GMC had the Wrangler RT/S and they were --- aweful in the rain and snow) these SR-A's have been pretty good. They transmit a lot of road noise and get noisier with age. I figured I'd have swapped these off within a month of buying the Jeep, but two winters later and they still hold the road fairly well, and still have some decent tread life left on them. I do rotate every 6k miles and check/adjust air pressure every week.

I drive a 4 inch lifted Jeep Liberty with aftermarket bumpers etc, so lots of extra weight. The Duratracs have been an excellent all around tire. They are fantastic in snow, do everything well except deep mud, but then they are not a mud tire. Wear has been great, installed at 129,000 miles now have 195,000 miles. As long as you keep the air pressure checked and rotated every 4,000 miles they wear really well. I would and do recommend these to everyone.
