Both tires are 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake-certified and will be available during the late second quarter of 2024.
The Klever H/T 4S is a “true four-season tire” and is made for light trucks, vans, crossovers and sport utility vehicles, according to Ryan Lewis, marketing manager of automotive for Kenda.
The symmetrical tread design features four large circumferential grooves with independent tread blocks. The grooves allow water to flow freely and increase hydroplaning resistance.
The four-season tread compound allows for flexibility over a “wide range” of temperatures, says Lewis.
The tire will be available in 34 P-metric and LT designations, offering a 60,000-mile limited treadwear warranty on P-metric sizes and 50,000 miles on LT sizes.
The Klever A/T Trail tire is the “in-between tire” of Kenda's Klever H/T and the Klever A/T, according to Lewis.
The Klever A/T Trail is for off-road driving and is engineered for light trucks, small SUVs and CUV applications.
The symmetrical tread design offers wet, dry and winter performance, while still maintaining “size-specific low noise optimization.
The Klever A/T Trail tire will initially be available in 15 T-/H-/V-rated sizes, featuring a 60,000-mile limited tread warranty.
The Klever H/T 4S will replace the Klever H/T2.
Lewis says Kenda is looking forward to getting into the passenger tire segment, like it is in the light-truck segment, in the upcoming year.
