Kenda Klever AT KR28 Tire Review & Rating

The Kenda Klever A/T KR28 is built to deliver all-terrain performance while also focusing on providing drivers with a tire that is comfortable on the highway. While including a host of features you would expect from an AT tread design, the Klever A/T has been created for use in a variety of different driving scenarios.

An aggressive symmetrical tread pattern features deep sipes throughout the tread and biting edges to improve overall grip, cornering, and braking on wet or snow covered road surfaces. It also helps the tire deliver confident off-road traction in all types of terrain such as dirt, mud, gravel, sand, grass and more.


Kenda Klever AT KR28 Tire Review

Internally, the tire has dual steel belts to improve tread life and promote even tread wear. The 3-ply sidewall found in select sizes has been reinforced by a tough fabric to stiffen the tire while also reducing the possibility of punctures. Finally, a protective rubber has been added to the outside layer of the tire to improve air retention and maintain tire pressure.

The Klever KR28 is available in sizes ranging from 14-18 inches in both LT and non-LT models. There’s also a 60K mile tread life warranty.

Pros

  • Excellent traction in dry, wet and snowy driving conditions
  • Good traction in moderate off-road terrain
  • Very reasonably priced for an all-terrain tire

Cons

  • In-vehicle road noise not as quiet as advertised
  • Tread may wear faster than you expect

Overall Thoughts

The Kenda AT is the type of tire that can jump out and surprise you with its nice performance in certain areas. If you only look at the lower price compared to other big name models, you might easily dismiss it as just another cheap A/T tire. In this case you may be making a mistake.

We like this all-terrain tire for several reasons, which includes its more than capable off-road traction. Unless you are wanting to do some serious rock climbing or plan to drive in deep gooey mud, this tire is going to get you through just about any other terrain. Highway traction is very good in both wet and dry driving conditions, and the tire holds up in an area where some all-terrain tires fall short… traction in the snow.

That said, there are a few areas we would like to see improved. Expect to hear a little added noise on the highway, but nothing that is too excessive. The biggest issue you might find deals with the tread life. Depending on your driving style it may fall short of what you would expect.

Overall, we give this model a rank in the middle to lower half of the all-terrain class. While it’s not on the level of a BFG T/A KO2 or Cooper AT3 among other best in class tires, it is reasonably priced and delivers dependable performance on and off-road.

  1. Got a set of 265,75,16,c on a xterra great until they hit 65mph or more then they are all over the place had all new ball joints and bushings and struts and tie rod replacement before buying them and I still have to saw the wheel at 70 not impressed

  2. I have a 2000 Ford F350 crew cab 8′ bed dually 4×4 powerstroke. I am on my 2nd set of 6 in a little over your I tow heavy trailers all day long. The 1st set I got 42000 miles out of Before having to replace At 1st yes they are squirmy but once you get a couple miles On them they are a very nice tire if this set last as long is the 1st set I will have no problems buying a 3rd set.

  3. I’m on my second set of Kenda’s that were installed last week (4th set overall on my 2009 Chevy Duramax). A week after I purchased my truck brand new I had Hankooks put on which were ok at first but had a tire start to seperate towards the end of their life and lots of uneven wear, I had to constantly rotate them and the ride was so-so, for the second set I got a great deal on BF Goodrich All Terrain, they rubbed in the wheel well on tight turns but not a big deal, and then had one tire separate after about 30,000 miles and never really cared for their hard ride, and then for the first time I had Kenda’s put on, loved the ride and got 51,000 miles out that set with never a problem, so now I have the 2nd set of Kenda’s and hopefully will have the same luck… I don’t do much off roading so I couldn’t tell you how they do in that environment but on the road they ride like a dream.

  4. i have had 2 sets of 4 on 2 different trucks. both E load range and the tread life was horrible! i got about 1 year and not even 20,000 miles out of them on my 05 silverado 2500hd in size 245/70/16. they wore even but fast & i rotated them as recommended. the 215/85/16 set on my 89 f250 plow truck got all chewed up from plowing and spinning the tires. the tread is extremely soft and there is alot of tread squirm when new due to the deep & soft tread, and i mean ALOT! would never but these again.

  5. I have owned two sets of these tires on two different trucks. This is a very good tire. I agree with the above review except for the tread wear comment. I have experienced excellent tread wear. After 30,000 miles I still had 10-11/32 of tread depth with very even wear. My first set was a load range c LT tire on a F150. Second set a load range E LT tire on a Silversdo 2500. I have experienced zero punctures.
