This 3-season light truck and SUV tire handles both wet and dry conditions well and provide long treadwear life. The symmetric tread pattern has five ribs with a continuous centre rib for good straight line traction. The Encounter HT's intermediate and shoulder tread blocks provide great stability, and the four deep continuous grooves aid in reducing hydroplaning.

?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.

The staff at the Enderby Kal Tire were awesome
I needed 4 new rims and tires and they had them ordered in and on my truck 24 hours later so I could get back on the road
I was on vacation passing through the town when a piece of metal flew at us

I don’t know anything about tires and rims but the ones they selected for me are working great so far
