OEM Tire on Ranger

What do you guys think about this?

I order and an 08 Ranger which was to come with P235/75R15 OWL AT Tires. I'm not sure who makes them.

I received the truck and it has GoodYear Wrangler SR-A P235/75R15.

Seems like two different tires to me. Which one is the better tire? I wont be off roading much. An occasional dirt road here or there, some snow covered rodes but no mud.

It looks to me as though the truck was designed with the OWL AT's in mind. I can't figure out why they put the Wrangler SR-A's on it. The Window sticker says "OWL AT Tires".

I was thinking about putting up a fuss but wonder if it would be worth it.

I'm also thinking the SR-A's might give me better gas mileage.

Cole. Thanks. "OWT= outlined white letters, which your Goodyear have".

That settles it.

Good deal, now when the bank accont says you can, go out and wear those off, then get what you really want/like.

These Continental OEM tires on my 02 Ranger went 50K and were probably good for another 10K when road debris ruined one, so I just went ahead and bought four new Michelins. The Conti's did fine for normal driving. My new 08 came with the same Continental tires

These tires work good and seem to be alright on the freeway. I check the fuel mileage on the first fill up which was mostly around town and light on the accelerator and I hit 17.7 MPG. Not to bad.

These tires were also good in the snow so I can't complain.
