    Anyone have the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A - P245/70R17 108S VSB tire? I've been looking at them for a replacement tire for my Traverse.

    I made the switch from good year to firestone several years ago, to the destination LE series for my trailblazer, I was very pleased, a 60 k tire. I have the firestone firehawks on my HHR, great for the HHR as its a sporty all season, from the facotry the HHR was fitted with a performance tire which was great on dry road, bad in all other conditions. Goodyear does make a great tire, I like the firestone better for myself. Its a good design and good technology in the destination LE.

    Steve, did you get tires yet? If not, you might want to rethink the SRA? There are over 1000 reviews of that tire on tire rack, and overall score is 6.1...not very good. The biggest problems are poor wet traction, and uneven wear. One of the highest rated tires on TR is the Firestone destination LE2...it rates an 8.7 out of 10. I think they are a bit less $$, too. Good luck. Jim

    Goodyear Wrangler SRA tires are garbage. Purchased new four which now have to be replaced with less than 30,000km on them. Side walls are cracked up and would of had blowouts if not discovered. These tires should be recalled

    I started off getting a full set of Goodyear Fortera tires at a very good price at Discount Tire, the problem is they were about 60% tread wear but they started to separate. So after a few months DT gave me FULL CREDIT on what I paid for them and I went with a set of Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia, which were more money but since I got free miles on the replacement Fortera tires, I just had to pay again for mounting and balancing so it all worked out.

    This I still paid about $600+ though so this is not a cheap tire, it’s just a good tire. Can’t wait to see how they work with the AWD this winter. I feel better knowing that the wife has been driving this toting the kids around.

    Tires certainly are not a place to go cheap, peace of mind is always a good thing!
