MINIMUM QUANTITY REQUIRED

You've selected less than 4 tires for a tire type that requires all tires to be within a similar tread depth range. Once your tires are inspected in-store, you may be required to replace more than the quantity you've selected.

It's important for your safety when driving in winter conditions.

You'd be hard pressed to find a better all-around tire for all-seasons. The WR gets high marks in myriad conditions, scoring "very good" to "excellent" in every category of our fall and winter outdoor testing. It performs well on both wet and dry pavement, snow and ice and excels in dangerous slushy conditions via its sharply chamfered Slush Edge on the tire's inner edge. The two deep circumferential grooves on the asymmetric tread dispel large amounts of water quickly, and the self-locking 3D sipes on the center tread portion provide excellent stability and lateral support while cornering. Not available in Quebec.

Kal's Test Results

"Good performance on dry and wet pavement for an all-weather tire. Initial steering response not particularly crisp, but gets the job done."

?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.

Different feel but pleased with the performance

Had to buy a new set of tires when my existing front 2 had a catastrophic failure. I bought the Nordman WR since the car has almost 300000km and didn't feel adding Nokian WR4's were worth the premium price. So far the tires are performing very well in the brutally cold weather we've been having. They provide a quiet ride and good traction on snow/ice.
I didn't think there would be much of a different feel from my old tires but it is noticeable. Not better or worse, just different. Soon enough I won't notice it. Performance and traction are keeping me happy.
