Re: Goodyear Wrangler SR-A or Something Better?
IMO the GY Wrangler SR-A isn't quite as bad as everyone says. Just put the 3rd set of them on the WJ last fall(Mine has 245/70-16 tires stock), and with 165k on it, I have to say that they lasted quite a while. They don't perform too bad in snow (I live in Wisconsin). That being said, I only got the latest set because my Goodyear store was able to get them pretty cheap (Around $110), and I really figured that I at least knew what I was getting into, knew they would last a while, and couldn't justify anything else for the price i got them at.
That being said, there are a lot of better tires available for the money, and I didn't even look at SR-A's for my WK. I ended up with Wrangler Silent Armors(I got them around $700 installed for 245/65/17), which have been good so far, but have only had them since august, so no snow yet. I have also heard good things about the General Grabber HTS if your looking for a non-A/T tire.
