Ready to rack up some kilometres? If so, then the Defender T+H is the tire you want to be riding on. With an impressive 130,000 tread-life warranty, this 3-season tire is designed for the long haul. There are two primary technologies that give this tire such an outstanding treadlife. The first is MaxTouch Construction, which ensures loads are evenly distributed across the tire. The second is its EverTread compound, which delivers exceptional durability, without compromising performance. This tire also features IntelliSipe, a system that maximizes the number of sipes on the tire, while maintaining tread block rigidity. The Defender T+H demonstrated stellar proficiency in our independent testing, earning solid ratings for both dry and wet handling. It also earned our top score for road noise, meaning those lengthy road trips will be that much more enjoyable.

?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 have not driven on these tires much yet and only city driving at that but they handle well on dry pavement and in rain so far.
