The R2 SUV presents Hakkapeliitta's most advanced non-studded winter SUV tire and likely the most advanced one on the market, period. Its performance and reputation make it one of our top selling tires. The R2 SUV is strewn with diamond-hard particles that dig into the ice and snow with authority, and the aggressive grip claws enhance traction when accelerating or braking. The deep lateral grooves and the large zig-zag longitudinal grooves provide good water dispersion for wet weather traction. The aramid fibers woven into the sidewall protect the tire and the wheel flange when engaging off-road dangers that would cripple lesser tires.

Kal's Customer Care Plan

Kal's Test Results

"Excellent feel and predictability on snow and ice. Quite good on dry and wet pavement considering it is a winter tire."

?Summer vs Winter Tests

BRAKING

We varied our approach speeds by driving surface and by season for two reasons. First, this represents how most Canadians would normally drive on that surface in each season. Second, testing in both seasons provides an indication of how a tire's performance will be affected by road temperature.

CORNERING

To understand how road surface temperatures affect the cornering performance of a tire, our cornering tests are completed in both summer conditions (dry and wet pavement, and gravel roads) and winter conditions (dry, wet and icy pavement). Please note that slush is also tested but completed in a specific slush cornering test..

?Independent & Objective Testing

The independent tire testers conducted extensive tests to determine how the tires in our core line-up perform in a range of conditions in both summer and winter. To maintain neutrality, no driver knew the specifics of the tires they were testing each time. All results were analyzed and processed by the testing group and then provided to Kal Tire for sharing with our customers.

Tires are excellent, however, the tires are not balanced. So they vibrate at highway speeds. Went back to the store, but they are booked for the month, and since I cannot leave the SUV at their shop it is a huge inconvenience for me

We're sorry the balancing is off. After speaking with Stefan, the store manager, we believe he has booked you in for this Thursday. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do. Thank you.

I've been driving on these tires for several weeks now. They have handled snow and ice quite well.
