The Neo Gen is one mean looking tire with an aggressive tread pattern that screams performance. It's also a competent 3-season tire that stands out in both wet and dry conditions, scoring very good to excellent in our tests. The tire's deep circumferential grooves and the angled tread blocks move water out of your path for better road contact. Stability is bolstered by the continuous inner shoulder, and cornering aided by a big outer shoulder block. Hydroplane resistance is excellent, and rolling resistance rates in the very good category.

?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.
