Kelly Edge AT Review
As a budget brand division of Goodyear, Kelly Tires delivers an all-terrain tire that checks some of the right boxes, but not all of them. Off-road performance is quite good, however, on-road ride quality suffers as a result of the extreme tread pattern. Tread life is also quite short, but it is attractively priced.
Kelly Edge AT Review
If you need your truck or SUV to regularly drive off-road, then the Kelly Edge AT is an affordable option that comes highly rated by owners.
- Very affordable for an all-terrain tire
- Solid off-road grip
- Decent warranty
- Could be quieter
- Ponderous on the highway
Definitely not a household name, when you opt for a set of Kelly Tires, you know it’s a product you can trust. That’s because the brand actually falls under the larger Goodyear company – one of the most reputable tire manufacturers in the industry.
And that’s more than you can say for a lot of budget-focused tire manufacturers.
The tire isn’t really equipped with any groundbreaking performance features, but is really just a collection of best practices. Large tread blocks allow the tire to dig in to loose ground, dirt and gravel, while large section of void between the treads help the tire self-clean, tossing away the dirt so the tire can maintain traction.

Generally-speaking, we’re quite impressed with this tire’s capability. The varied shapes of the tread blocks help it grip, and also help prevent rocks from sticking to the tire – something which can cause uneven and premature tire wear.
In terms of on-road performance the Edge AT is less impressive. The unique shape of the tread blocks that help it grip off-road,, mean there aren’t really any circumferential grooves that run the length of the tire to help evacuate water. The tread-depth means that’s not an issue most of the time, but hydroplaning can be more of an issue in deeper water, at speed.
The exterior treadblocks help in dry on-road cornering, although the center section of the tire means its a bit ponderous on the highway. We also feel like this tire could be quieter.

Kelly Tires backs the Edge AT with a 50,000 mile treadwear warranty. That’s not as high as some other tires in the segment, but when you consider how affordably-priced they are, it’s quite good.
Anyone looking for a better on-road performance, and who doesn’t really need the off-road capability of this tire, should read our Kelly Edge AS Review.
Overall, we’ve listed a few drawbacks for this tire, but that shouldn’t necessarily dissuade you from buying it. With a solid warranty and solid off-road performance, this is one of the most affordable ways to get into an all-terrain tire.
Out of 65 reviews on Goodyear’s website, the Kelly Edge AT comes rated 4 out of 5 stars by real owners.
