Kelly-Springfield Tire & Rubber Company has had a long and interesting history, starting with the founding in 1894 by Edwin Kelly. The company started by using partner, Arthur Grant’s blueprint to manufacture the first successful carriage tire. Many companies tried to manufacture similar products, but none were able to reach the success of Grants design using wires to hold the tire on the wheel. In 1903, Firestone Tire & Rubber Co., B.F. Goodrich Co., the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., and dozens of other tire manufacturers purchased the license to start producing Grant’s patent. The Great Depression was extremely hard to the Kelly-Springfield Tire & Rubber Company, dropping the sales 54% between 1929 and 1933. Edmund Burke saved the company from bankruptcy, reorganized the company, and sold them to Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. Presently, Kelly manufacturing plants use the philosophy “first class or scrap” mentality. The company believes that if the tire is not the absolute best, it should be “scrapped” so that customers do not experience anything but the best. Today, the slogan used is “A good deal on a great tire.”

The Navigator Gold is one of Kelly Tire’s most popular tires. Navigator Gold is a smooth, quiet ride in all four seasons. A combination of isolated and interlocked tread elements are featured in the tire to enhance traction and handling in wet and dry conditions. To give the tire a smooth and quiet, comfortable ride, enhanced rubber distribution combined with alternating shoulder slots were incorporated in the design.

For light Trucks, the Safari Trex offers a premium all-terrain tire that has even-wearing tread, a quiet ride, and extreme ride comfort. The Safari Trex features many break through technologies including: an elongated rib and multi-pitch design, a unique tread pattern, element geometry, below-surface geometry and an enhanced cavity shape. For decreased noise, the elongated rib and multi-pitch tread design were used. The tread pattern and element geometry give the tire additional traction for deep snow and mud, but do not contribute to added tire noise. To keep rocks from penetrating the tread grooves, below-surface geometry was added to the design. An enhanced cavity shape maintains rectangular footprint shape to allow for even tread-wear giving the tire a longer life.

For an exceptional high-performance, all –season tire, chose the Charger GT. This tire has a sport-derived tread pattern that not only has a sporty appearance, but also increased handling. Twin circumferential grooves are featured to improve wet traction and handling. The Charger GT offers a 50,000-mile limited tread wear warranty guaranteeing a quality product.
