Good winter tires shouldn't drain your bank account but instead provide surefootedness and affordability. Goodrides's SW608 is a prime example of that. This winter tire excelled in testing when braking in ice and snow. The tire's aggressive V-shaped tread design combined with deep grooves dispel snow and water, while the directional tire sipes maximize the contact patch. Goodride's SW608 presents a significant value in a high-traction winter tire that's only available at Kal Tire.

?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.

These tires are doing really well, some sliding but that was going fast down an open road during the first rain. Did great driving up the mountain in heavy rain.

Awful. Never had such bad winter tires. I get stuck on a driveway with a hardly noticeable incline and a dusting of snow.
