Let the Kal Tire experts help you make your tire selection!

Many performance factors are involved in every tire model manufactured. These factors vary between patterns and can be less or more important to the consumer based on use of the product and driving needs.

It is very common with most tire brands that in order to achieve benefits in one area they may have to sacrifice benefits in another area. For example, if a particular tire offers long mileage, it may obtain less traction; or if a particular tire offers good traction, then noise levels may increase on dry pavement.

The Kal Tire professionals can help you with your choice of tire depending on your vehicle type and driving sytle. Email us for more information on tire selection.
