    For those who like the SRA's I say more power to you. Unfortunately, I have had 2 incidents that where on-road and due to those and questionable snow/ice traction I'll be replacing them. The last incident was having to get a puncture repaired, not uncommon for any other except that this puncture was caused by one of those plastic push-in fasteners you would find on any car body trim. Now I suppose a hard plastic could puncture any given tire, but my experience with those plastic fasteners is that when installing them by hand its pretty easy to damage them if not pressed in properly. But puncture a tire? The tire shop couldn't believe it and neither could I. I was expecting a nail or screw or something, but not a plastic body fastener.

    Hard to argue with that. Maybe poor batch to batch consistency of the elastomer?

    I've got a huge assortment of those plastic push in fasteners for my ATV. If my tires were on their last leg I'd probably line a few up and drive over them.

    I also have no problems with the stock SRA's. I've driven in heavy rain, as well as snow/ice covered roads, many times, never had traction issues. With 8,500 miles, they seem to be wearing pretty even as well, and I have not rotated them yet.

    Agreed. IMHO no all season tire is safe in the snow once they are worn a bit. That is why I alsways commit to 4 wheels and snow tires for every vehicle I get. Its more about steering and stopping than going.

    I totally agree here.

    Also, all snow is not created equal and if the temp is right and the snow is packable, all seasons may work ok. If the snow is greasy, powder, add hills and depth that same tire will be garbage.

    Had a flat from a stone and the tire was trashed, wouldn't pass inspection, went with the Michelin defenders, OEM tres are never a good choice, I also run Nokian studded snow wheels, it's not going it's stopping

    I'll again post up some great results of the stock SRAs in the snowstorm we had on Tuesday. I left work around 5 and there was a solid 10-12" of snow on the onramp getting back onto the highway. The truck just moved right through it at about 10-15 mph without any complaints. Same goes for when I got home to the same 10-12" but then additionally what the plow had left too. I was able to pull right through it without much hassle. On the way home the majority of the highway was plowed but a few sections weren't and at no point did things get squirrely with either slowing down for Police/EMT or getting back up to speed.

    I'm beginning to wonder if they updated the SRA at some point with a better tread design and/or compound.

    I popped 3 out of 4 of the stock tires within 2000 miles, needless to say the stock SRA's weren't for me, wish they would've been, putting $1200 into a brand new pickup for tires kind of sucked.

    How did you pop them? If 3 of 4 failed for no reason in 2,000 miles the dodge house would be giving me a hell of a deal on new tires. Didn't run over a box of nails did you?

    63000 Km, 3 winters and still tons of tread left. Hoping for another wintery snowy year before I replace them.
