Nitto's eye-catching NT420S tire maximizes wet and dry handling and traction. Its unique slanted tread blocks and a slightly off-centre groove repels water from the surface of the tire, leading to outstanding results in our hydroplane prevention testing. Made to fit your SUV or light truck, these long-lasting, non-directional tires boast above-average results in our summer braking and cornering evaluations.

Kal's Test Results

"Although it showed a tendency to turn in a little slowly on the dry, the wet pavement performance was solid."

?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.
