Handle winter driving conditions with confidence with Sumitomo Ice Edge winter tires. Developed with Sumitomo Rubber’s ‘cutting-Edge’ 3D sipe technology, these tires received our top rating for performance on snow and ice. While this is a studdable tire, it’s really not necessary. With its specially formulated tread compound, the Ice Edge delivers superior cold-weather performance all on its own, allowing you to enjoy a riding experience that’s smooth, stable and safe. This tire is equally adept at handling wet surfaces, including braking, cornering and hydroplaning. The tire’s tread pattern also delivers a quiet ride for an enhanced driving experience. These tires literally are the edge you need to battle the toughest winter conditions.

?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.

I bought my Sumitomo Ice Edge tires based on two factors: the review of these tires by Kal Tire and the price point. I had intended to buy Michelin X Ice tires, but at $29.00 less, the Sumitomos seemed like a better deal-and in fact they are. These tires have the best ice braking performance of any winter tires I have ever owned as well as superior traction. They are also very quiet (for a winter tire), and-thanks to an excellent job of balancing by the tire technician-very smooth. I am extremely pleased with these tires and would highly recommend them to anyone.
