My colleague was thinking about selling his trusty and dependable 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer. The car has served him well on numerous road trips and was at one point modified for track days with friends and family. I told him to buy a new of tires before advertising the sale online since the old Falken tires were ready to give up the ghost.
My friend was not in the mood to spend $400 or $500 on a new set of tires, so I recommended the Kenda Kenetica KR17. I told him the Kenetica KR17 is one of the most affordable all-season touring tires you can buy right now. He pulled out his smartphone, went online, and smiled. True to my word, he found Kenda Kenetica KR17 tires (215/50/R17) sold for less than $85 each.
We took the car to our neighborhood tire dealer and found a set of Kenda Kenetica for the same price online. My friend was not only impressed with the price. He was smitten by the sporty asymmetric tread design of the Kenda Kenetica tires.
He told me: “These are great looking tires! But are they any good on the road?”
I told him: “I guess we will need to wait and see.”
Kenda Kenetica KR17 Review: Features
The Kenda Kenetica is equipped with a rather gorgeous asymmetric tread design with a notched center rib design. This feature is designed to enhance stability, steering feel, and braking on dry roads. The tire is blessed with large shoulder blocks to deliver crisp handling and better cornering stability at high speeds.
