Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tires are built to provide good traction in wet conditions and a quiet ride. WetTrac Technology uses zig-zag microgrooves to create a traction pattern that enhances the tire's hold on the road in rain, snow and ice. Wide circumferential grooves enhance the effect by quickly moving water away from the tread, improving traction in the rain. An exclusive wet traction compound is used in the composition of the tires themselves to provide traction on wet roads. Radial belts are used in the tires to increase durability and reduce punctures.
