Goodyear Wrangler SR-A
Follow-Up Review: 41,000 miles on tires
Hitting 41k miles and the noise is getting unbearable. They sound like a set of Mud Swampers going down the highway. I still have an easy 10-15k miles of wear left on them, but they are just too noisy. They gotta go. Still rotating every 6k miles, properly inflated and I've had the vehicle aligned twice and every thing is perfect except these noise makers. My stereo speakers are getting a work out trying to drown out the wooping drone these things make. Invest in migraine pills.
Initial Review: 31,000 miles on tires
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.
