The introduction of the Kelly Edge A/S and Kelly Edge AT – new products to cover performance touring, passenger, CUV, SUV and all-terrain tire segments – helps to usher in a new generation of consumer tires for the Kelly brand.
The Kelly Edge power line of products are intended to offer great performance that consumers want, with broad size coverage in a single line that also provides a great value to consumers. “Through consumer research and market-back interaction with our retailers, we know a key segment of drivers are looking for value when they shop for tires. They want current technology, but they don’t want a lot of extras,” said Sara Vacha, Goodyear brand manager.
“The new Kelly Edge power line is the answer. With 85 unique sizes to cover 89 percent of the market, Kelly Edge is a very complete lineup with many more contemporary sizes than we have previously offered in the Kelly brand.” Among the features of the new Kelly Edge A/S are biting tread block edges for all-season traction in wet, dry and snowy conditions; broad tread grooves that help evacuate water and slush from the tread for enhanced grip; sturdy tread blocks to help stabilize the tread footprint to promote long treadwear; and a proven tread pattern that enhances handling. The tire carries a 55,000-mile/85,000-kilometer tread life limited warranty.
A broad lineup of 51 sizes will be offered, covering T, H and V speed ratings, and 14- to 18-inch rim diameters within the performance and commuter touring product areas. The Kelly Edge AT is a hard-working quality tire with highway and off-road traction for everyday driving. It has flared tread block edges that help shovel mud, dirt and gravel away from the tread for off-road traction. It includes a 50,000-mile/80,000-kilometer tread life limited warranty.
An excellent choice for pickups and SUVs used both on- and off-road, the Kelly Edge AT will be offered in 36 sizes, ranging from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters.
