The HTR Enhance L/X is Sumitomo's 3-Season Grand Touring tire that's geared toward drivers of coupes and sedans and provides good traction in wet and dry conditions thanks to its 5-rib asymmetric tread pattern, biting edges sipes and four circumferential grooves that evacuates water. It's also a good high-speed, long range tire that's highly stable due to interlocked tread blocks and Sumitomo's Jointless Nylon Band (JNB) technology.

?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.

2 months ago by ED CHUBB.

All of the guys at Kal are great. I have had great service. They do all oil changes, auto repairs (Headlights, brakes, back end work on my 2nd car) I have purchased 3 sets of new tires. One set of Winters and rims to go with them. I have purchased 2 Die Hard Batteries for different vehicles. I basically don't go anywhere else.
