Kelly Edge HP Tire Review & Rating

New in 2016, the Kelly Edge HP all-season tire is built for drivers of higher performance coupes, sedans and crossovers. Kelly has designed the budget-friendly Edge HP with a host of features that are geared towards increasing year-round traction and handling, as well as providing a comfortable ride quality.

Kelly Edge HP Tire Review

Kelly’s all-season tread compound is matched up with an asymmetric tread pattern to help this model deliver reliable traction and handling on dry or wet pavement. A wide continuous center rib adds stability and quickens steering response throughout the speed zone. The tire’s solid tread blocks on the shoulders increase cornering grip and help make the tire more stable.

Three circumferential grooves and unique blade grooves around the tread surface enhance wet traction and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. Another benefit to these biting edges on the blades is that they aid in handling performance and cornering grip.

Ride comfort is increased through Kelly’s unique tread block sequence that effectively lowers outside road noise. It does its job for the most part as road noise is not really an issue for this tire.

Kelly is initially releasing 20 sizes in the Edge HP that range from 15-18 inches. A 45K mile tread warranty is included on this tire as well.

  1. Not my favorite tire. They were put on new in June 2020 on my 2014 Ford Escape by a dealership prior to them reselling it. I bought it in February 2021. I am getting use to them but they wouldn’t be my choice for a tire. They ride very rough and you can feel every bounce and bump in the road. I’ve had my shocks replaced thinking that was the problem. Helped some but did not come close to solving the issues. When the temperature is colder especially 40 degrees and under the bouncing and road vibrations are intense. But as it warms up it lessons. I live in the south so humidity probably makes it worse. I contemplated getting new tires but I can’t afford it right now. Definitely do not recommend these tires and every reputable tire company in my area I speak to not related to the Ford dealer does not recommend them either. They say they only put them on if someone asks for them specifically.

  2. I just bought a set of KELLY EDGE HP 235/45R17 97W and these tires perform! Very quiet,silky smooth ride but is lightning quick on sharp turns. Hugs the curve like a champ it was created to be! I’m very happy with these tires…thumbs up KELLY!!!

  3. Awesome tire. I just put a new set on my Audi TT Quattro. Incredibly quiet and comfortable, but with good corning. I give them a 5 STAR rating for sure.
