If you require winter dominance in your truck or SUV, then your vehicle should be shod with the most advanced winter tire made today. The Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV studded tire uses the most modern stud technology in the form of flange design that reduces impact with pavement and a stud cushion that both improves traction and increases ride comfort. 8 SUV Studded's anchor studs are placed in a staggered manner along the full circumference of the tread, increasing traction and reducing road wear. They’re also situated to handle both longitudinal and lateral movement, aiding handling and providing traction in myriad driving situations. The Aramid reinforced structure brings a high level of durability, and the back of the tread blocks have a sawtooth pattern that enhances traction. The aramid fibre of the tire provides a strong sidewall, giving the 8 SUV Studded toughness in off-road winter situations, as well.

?Summer vs Winter Tests

BRAKING

We varied our approach speeds by driving surface and by season for two reasons. First, this represents how most Canadians would normally drive on that surface in each season. Second, testing in both seasons provides an indication of how a tire's performance will be affected by road temperature.

CORNERING

To understand how road surface temperatures affect the cornering performance of a tire, our cornering tests are completed in both summer conditions (dry and wet pavement, and gravel roads) and winter conditions (dry, wet and icy pavement). Please note that slush is also tested but completed in a specific slush cornering test..

?Independent & Objective Testing

The independent tire testers conducted extensive tests to determine how the tires in our core line-up perform in a range of conditions in both summer and winter. To maintain neutrality, no driver knew the specifics of the tires they were testing each time. All results were analyzed and processed by the testing group and then provided to Kal Tire for sharing with our customers.
