A lot of enthusiasts were disappointed when the Roadhandler lineup from Sears suddenly faded into oblivion over a decade ago, but it’s time to once again rejoice, as the Roadhandler line has finally made its return to the market in a new and improved fashion.
If this is your very first time hearing about this tire, we suggest you stick around until the end of this Roadhandler tires review to learn all there’s to know about this legend of a tire.
Roadhandler Tires (Our Review)
The Roadhandler is an all-season tire that’s designed to grant drivers of sedans, coupes, vans, and crossovers quiet and comfortable performance. The tire utilizes a symmetrical tread design that features high resistance to abrasions, so you’re guaranteed a long-lasting performance with this tire.
Further, the tire features a robust center rib block that enhances its stability at higher speeds and improves its responsiveness. The tire is able to navigate wet terrain effectively, thanks to the use of wide circumferential grooves that reduce the risk of hydroplaning.
The tire also incorporates lateral grooves for reliable performance in light snow. However, this isn’t a winter-specific tire, so we wouldn’t recommend using it on the ice or in deep snow.
The only problem we have with the tire has to do with road noise. It’s not annoyingly loud, but it should be improved considering this is a touring all-season tire.
- Superb traction on dry and wet terrain
- Flaunts a high-quality tread compound
- Extremely comfortable ride quality
- Backed by a very lengthy warranty
- Listed at a cost-effective price tag
- Road noise can use some improvement
- Not the best traction on snow and slush
