Due to dramatic increases in sea-freight shipping costs, we are forced to adjust pricing on inbound inventory from July 1st. In the past year, ocean freight costs have increased from approximately $2000 to well over $11,000. As such, Kors Tire will be increasing pricing by an average of 8% in order to keep pace with fluctuating freight costs. While we pride ourselves on our low-cost business model and would prefer to continue providing our customers with the absolute lowest prices, these increases are necessary in order to keep the doors open for years to come. We thank you for your continued support, and look forward to the return of standard shipping rates in the future!
Tire classification cheat sheet:
3 Seasons - tires suitable for spring, summer and fall driving (March 1 - September 30)
BC Winter Approved - BC Ministry of Transportation requires either a 3 peaked mountain with snowflake symbol or "M+S" symbol . In this category you will find true winter tires (3 peaked mountain/snowflake symbol) as well as year round (M+S symbol) tires that are aggressive enough to be suitable for winter driving.
Winter - true winter tires (3 peaked mountain/snowflake symbol) are designed for severe winter conditions. Using winter tires in the summer will lead to faster wear, poor handling and traction.
Light Truck Tread Pattern
AT - All-Terrain M+S tires can be used year-round in BC and AB provinces. Moderately aggressive tread pattern is suitable for daily use as well as some off-road use. This tire provides great traction in sandy, rocky and snowy environments. They are also reasonably quiet on the roads and provide a smooth, comfortable ride.
MT - Mud-terrain M+S tires can be used year-round in BC and AB provinces and are specifically designed for mud bogging, though often used on-the-road as well. Very aggressive tread pattern with big spaces between lugs provides traction and stability in slickest mud conditions and deep snow. Mud-terrain tires will wear faster if used on-the-road, but will definitely make your truck look aggressive.
RT - Rugged Terrain M+S tires can be used year-round in BC and AB provinces. Thick, deep sidewall edges with rugged designs match the terrain these tires can conquer. Chunky tread blocks with a high void ratio expel mud, rocks and other debris as if the rough road ahead were moving out of the way for the mighty R/T.
