The Vezda A/S KR205 is designed for owners of touring and luxury touring vehicles who are seeking a quiet, high-quality tire at a great value, without sacrificing all-season performance and treadlife. The company says it provides tier-one performance and quality at a tier-three price point, positioned so Kenda dealers can turn a profit.

The new tire features computer-optimized pitch sequencing for excellent noise reduction and increased wear performance. Higher sipe density maximizes winter and wet traction. Asymmetric tread patterns and strategically placed tie bars increase steering, stiffness and handling performance. It also was designed with superior hydroplaning and wet traction performance.

Set to be produced at the new Kenda production facility in Vietnam and available to dealers in North America in Spring 2018, the tire includes a 65,000-mile warranty and will be available in 32 initial sizes rated H and V fitting 15- to 19-in. wheels.

The Klever R/T KR601 is designed for comfort and performance. A toothy “triple threat” sidewall with aggressive sidewall tread offers both traction and protection against cuts, scuffs and tears in challenging conditions. Bead protector shields protect the rim from trail obstacles. Three full carcass plies ensure extra protection against impact and punctures. Interlocking tread blocks, aggressive tread, high sipe density makes the tire a strong choice for snow, ice, wet and muddy conditions. And unique compounds used in its design help ensure grip and softness without sacrificing durability and wear. It also can accept winter studs.
