New Tires from Kenda

Kenda Tire introduced 2 new offroad tires for 2019 and released them at SEMA. Both models are part of their Klever line.The Klever A/T2 KR628 is a revision of their original A/T tire, comes with a 50,000 mile warranty and is winter certified. The goal was to create a tire that exceeds the competition with exceptional fuel economy, lower noise, excellent handling and ride, and improved offroad traction.

While most tire makers in the offroad segment offer A/T and M/T options, Kenda added a 3rd category to fit between A/T and M/T: the Klever R/T KR601. This tire features more aggressive tread and sidewall. While it is not winter certified, it does feature slots for the addition of snow studs. Think of this tire as an A/T on steroids.
