You never know what you might encounter your daily drive but Sumitomo’s aptly named Encounter AT is designed to handle anything you can throw at it. Whether you’re towing materials to the job site or venturing off-road, this go-anywhere, do-anything light truck all-terrain tire rises to the challenge. From rocks and gravel to ice and snow, the Encounter AT’s non-directional, five-rib tread design excels in a variety of conditions. A combination of rigid, rugged tread blocks, and optimized tread design ensure this tire is refined enough to provide a comfortable ride on paved surfaces, yet aggressive enough to let you venture off-road with confidence. Furthermore, its 3D siping technology helps give the Encounter AT ‘very good’ snow ratings and ‘excellent’ ice ratings.

?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 impressive. handling on rainy and wet season is excellent. I will see how it perform this coming winter on snow and freezing temp. So far so good. It is a little bit noisy on highway compared to my previous set of tires.

Tires are great, no noise, great for all conditions, but a poor wheel alignment done. I've called to complain to get my wheel alignment fixed, they want to charge me again, when it's not even my fault. I've only had these tires for 2 half weeks and the alignment wasn't done correctly the first time
