KM, not KM2. It would be more cost effective to buy a set of takeoffs and sell the SRA' s.

Goodyear Wrangler Tires

The Goodyear Wrangler SRA tires are not great in Canada. They also have soft side walls that crack in no time which can lead to blowouts. I purchased four Lt245/70R17 which had to be condemned with less than 30,000km.

Maritimer The SRA's are great for town driving and groceries but my girl is taken off the pavement and to ensure safety, decent footware is needed for her.

Maritimer My Wrangler SRA's are coming off tomorrow and on goes the Wrangler Territories (very similar to the Duratracs and are made exclusively for Canadian Tire)

I had the Territories on my Cherokee and loved them. They are a little loud but nothing like having piece of mind when you go off road a distance. I had two flats in one day with P rated tires and to top it all off, I had my son (6 at the time) with me in the middle of nowhere!

R4D4R SRAs suck suck suck in the snow. The only thing they have going for them is they are quieter and get a bit better MPGees than good tires.

Schwoogies Had the SR-A's for less than 500 miles, then got rid of them on Craigslist. light mud= no good, winter= still not good (tread pattern allows for alot of sliding, tread is geared more for rain driving)

damndirtydog SRA's, on the road, they ain't bad. In the mud, they ain't good, ok in loose sand and dirt.
Couldn't wait to get rid of mine and get something larger, wider and more aggressive. Running 285/70/17 Nitto's now, but they're getting to the end of their useful life span. Switching over to Duratracs a very good all around aggressive A/T.

nwbronco Stock Jeep tires are fine. If they weren't, they wouldn't have them on. We wheel with a friend who does just fine on them. Can you get better? Always. Best bet is to get the rig, wheel it how ever you intend to, then make the decision.

Just how bad are the stock Goodyear Wrangler SR-A OEM tires?

I plan to order a Wrangler Sport S and am curious if the stock SR-A tires are decent for winter driving. (rain, ice, snow). I'm not too concerned about their off road capability.

The Tire Rack reviews aren't that inspiring.

I love the Bridgestone Dueller AT Revo II's on my truck. Do they perform well on a Wranglers?

Any recommendations on the best non dedicated winter tires using the stock 17" wheels?

Thanks
