    Personally, I can't wait to get rid of these SRAs next week, but if you want them, NTB looks like they are having a buy 2, get 2 deal until the beginning of June.

    One winter with the SRA's on my truck was enough.

    I replaced mine last fall and the winter driving was greatly improved.

    I would never by a set of SRA's. There are so many better choices out there.

    When my truck was brand new, sold mine at about 300km (just under 200 miles) on truck. Goodbye Goodyears. On a side note, I'm not anti Goodyear at all, had Goodyear F1-D3's on my sports car, LOVE them.

    If not the SRAs, then what do you replace them with?

    Mine hydroplaned twice in the first month I had my Ram, both times at interstate speeds and it wasn’t even raining hard and I was doing 60 in a 70, taking it easy, not even visible standing water. They are seriously trash. Agree with Jay, dangerous is an accurate descriptor for them.

    You are going to get a million answers to a generic question like that ... All depends on your needs, wants, driving conditions, and recreational habits ...

    I love the factory 17 inch Goodyear SRA tires on my 18 Ram. This is the smoothest and quietest pickup I have ever been in and the handling is great and don't have any trouble in the rain and we have had a BUNCH of rain here in Oklahoma. The tires are not worth a darn in the mud but I normally stay away from mud on my construction job sites but we have had so much rain even the lifted 4x4 trucks with nobby tires have a tough time.
