Goodyear Wrangler AT/SA is a SUV tire with all-season operation. It is designed for use with all-wheel drive vehicles and features an enhanced performance in terms of braking and traction in the wet. Such a conclusion was made after the comparison tests with the tire’s predecessor.
The tire tread picture provides for its quality wet performance and quality off-road operation. There’re lateral grooves as well as notches on tire sidewalls that provide for a great number of biting edges to deliver reliable grip on slippery surfaces, in light snow and in the wet.
Open-type grooves provide for the tread self-cleaning ability while drainage grooves evacuate water and slush from under the footprint area, which reduces hydroplaning.
There’s also a central rib to provide for predictable handling while shifted tread areas add to smooth and comfortable running. The tire sidewalls were reinforced while overall construction reduces bead skidding, which makes tire work more stable and eliminates the need of frequent wheel balancing.
The Wrangler AT/SA tire belongs to the eco-friendly tire segment as it includes low-aromatic oils in its structure. At the same time, such rubber compound improves traction and prolongs the tire life span.
