?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.

Deep Grooves

6 months ago by JIM REED.

The Sumikomo Ice Edge are the deepest grooves of any winter tire you have[ except A/T] and what I needed for any condition [photographer]. I got them for my 91 year old mother as well. All grip , no slip. They stop on ice without ABS kicking in @ 50 km/hr on a downward hill.

I love the grip they have, I couldn't spin out when I was trying to. I was testing the tires grip of course. I was very happy with the tires. They aren't noisy and I feel safer with them on.

I have had my Sumotomo Winter tires for 3 weeks. So far they performed very well on mostly wet roads. No snow yet but I am confident they will perform very well based on how they feel on very wet roads
