Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6 review
What is it?
The Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6 is a light truck/SUV tire engineered for powerful traction in snow and ice conditions. The Grandtrek SJ6 is developed to be used exclusively in winter temperatures and conditions.
Grandtrek SJ6 strengths and weaknesses?
The Grandtrek SJ6 has received almost unanimously positive user feedback when it comes to winter condition performance. It's a tire that will get you through winter's worst without so much as a hiccup.
As is often the case with dedicated snow/winter tires, handling on dry roads is adequate but not excellent, and road noise at highway speeds is a factor. The Grandtrek SJ6 is a more audible winter/snow tire than the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2, for example.
How does the Grandtrek SJ6 compare?
Direct comparative data is lacking, but all indications are that Grandtrek SJ6 snow performance is right in line with the very best light truck/SUV studless ice & snow tire options. Certainly the Grandtrek SJ6 has attracted no shortage of very satisfied users who have put it through some of the most challenging winter conditions in North America and elsewhere.
Anything else to know?
Sizes ranging from 15" - 19" are available. The Grandtrek SJ6 is suitable for a wide range of pickups, crossovers, and SUV's, and is very reasonably priced. For whatever reason, the Grandtrek SJ6 hasn't achieved the notoriety of alternative light truck/SUV tires, but there's no performance or affordability basis for that lack of popularity.
Simply put, the Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6 delivers excellent snow/winter performance and great value. It's the "steal" of the category and if price/economics are a top priority, it probably doesn't get any better.
Install the Grandtrek SJ6 in sets of four only, or you'll be dealing with a potentially hazardous handling imbalance.
