Jeep Wrangler Goodyear Wrangler SR-A Tire (29-33″) (1987-2018 YJ, TJ, JK & JL) Review


This Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tire is for those
of you that have a 1987 all the way up through the most current model year Jeep that are
looking for a good on-road tire. The base model JKs actually ship with this
tire on them from the factory. This is going to be a very good on-road tire,
but it is going to struggle a little bit off-road. This tire is available for wheel sizes from
15 to 20 inches, and from tire sizes 27 to 33 inches, so you do have a pretty good variety
there. If you are looking for an on-road tire, chances
are you’re not looking for something much bigger than a 33, so you are going to be able
to find whatever wheel-tire size combination you’re looking for in this make and model
of tire. Again, this is going to be a very good on-road
tire. There are going to be some pretty substantial
differences between this tire and an all-terrain or a mud-terrain tire, and those differences
make this better on the road and a little bit less off-road. So, this is going to have a slightly smaller
lug with a little bit less space in between it. What that’s going to do for you on the road
is give you a nice smooth, comfortable, quiet ride, and some really great wear out of this
tire. Now, what it does off-road is, it doesn’t
give you quite as much traction, especially in a slick or muddy situation, but even on
the rocks, you’re not going to get quite as much grip out of this tire. The sidewall also doesn’t have a substantial
amount of tread, which is something that you’ll find on a lot of all-terrains and especially
a lot of mud-terrain tires. This isn’t going to have quite as much of
an aggressive look, being that it doesn’t have that tread down to the sidewall. But it, again, is also going to be lighter,
which makes it better on fuel, and significantly quieter than a mud-terrain tire. This is also not going to have a tri-ply sidewall,
which is what a lot of all-terrain and mud-terrain tires have. So, that’s going to be a thicker sidewall,
which is great off-road, is going to give you some great puncture resistance on the
sidewall of the tire, but not necessary on-road, and will also keep the price and the weight
of the tire down for an on-road tire like this. So, again, a lot of benefits to this tire
on-road that make it a little bit less than ideal for an off-road situation. If you’re somebody who’s just staying on the
road, this is a great tire. If you’re somebody who plays in the mud a
lot and is okay with some of those drawbacks on the road, a mud-terrain tire is going to
be good. You want something that’s a little bit of
a mix in the middle, an all-terrain tire is going to be good. So, again, if you’re staying on the road,
this is a great choice. So, from a construction standpoint, again,
we covered a lot of the big things. This is going to have some smaller treads,
a little less space in between, not going to self-clean as well as a mud-terrain tire,
no tread down onto the sidewall, two-ply sidewalls, two-ply tread. All those things make it a very quiet tire,
a tire that’s going to ride very comfortably on the road, that you’re going to get a lot
of good life out of, but again, not as ideal off-road. As for installation, of course, you’re going
to want to take this tire and your wheel to a mount-and-balance shop, have them mount
the tire on the wheel and balance the whole mess before you put it back on your vehicle. Are there ways to get a tire mounted on the
wheel at home? Yes, we’ve all seen them on YouTube, using
some sort of combustible. That is not the way to do it, especially when
you’re mounting a whole set of those. Leave that to the emergency trail fixes. When you get this new set of tires, you are
going to want to get them mounted and balanced by a professional shop, and then bolt them
up to your Jeep. These tires are going to run anywhere between
$100 a tire and $200 a tire, and the price is going to vary, of course, based off of
the size of the tire itself, the bigger the tire, the more expensive, but also off of
the wheel size. As you get a larger wheel, in general, a tire
is going to be a little bit more expensive. So, a 33-inch tire for a 20-inch wheel is
going to be more expensive than a 15-inch wheel. Again, that’s just sort of a general rule
of thumb. Overall, I think this is a very fair price
because it is a two-ply sidewall, because it is a highway, a road-street tire. It is going to be less expensive than a mud-terrain
or an all-terrain tire that has a lot more going on with it. So, I think this is going to be a good buy. It’s going to ride, wear, and drive very comfortably. So, if you’re looking for a good highway tire
for your Wrangler, I would recommend taking a look at this Goodyear Wrangler SR-A, and

  2. There is nothing good on road about this. This tire is absolute junk in all driving conditions besides dry pavement.

  3. Had a set of these when I bought my JK new in 2016. Held up well for stock tires in Chicago winter until I could afford a set of KO2s a year after.

  4. Not hating on Extreme Terrain at all but…. Working at a tire shop, I wont even sell USED sets of these, they're nothing more but a fair weather tire.

  5. Have these on my 2013 Wrangler JK on the highway their great. Took em out to the desert on some sand — and pointy/sharp rocks where I got concerned, they held up and did great! Took em to Mammoth in some crazy snow for the last 6 seasons, and some crazy off roading at Mono Lake and they did great! I think in thick mud they would suck. Bottom line I liked em so much because and i've kept my Jeep stock; i'm only offload 10% + of the time I just replaced thee old SR A's with some new SR A's. I had a 99 Cherokee XJ with the old BFG All Terrain's they did not do very good in sand, and I actually popped one down in baja on a standard gravel rd. When I first took these out at Borrego Springs (San Diego Desert) I couldn't believe how well they did in the sand. Anyway just my 2 cents… Peace

  6. Have these on my pathfinder..30K miles in, time for new tires soon. I think they're decent tires. Had no problem in the offroad slums of tijuana w these.
