Re: Kelly Safari ATR vs Goodyear Wrangler SR-A
Kelly (formerly Kelly-Springfield) is a good quality tire, built about 30 miles away from me in a plant where I personally know many of the employees. As noted, it is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Goodyear, which gives it a higher place in the other than major-brand list in my opinion.
I used to sell many Kelly tires, and always had good luck with them, and the Safari line was very popular with the light truck/SUV owners. I do believe the Goodyear is likely to be a higher-performing tire overall, but of course they come with a premium price as well.
