If you drive an SUV you expect strong winter performance from your vehicle. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9 SUV Studded winter tire ensures that’s always the case. This new winter tire grips firmly and handles steadily in varying winter weather, while the strong aramid-fibre used in the sidewalls gives it maximum durability. No matter what the conditions, the patented Functional Stud Concept gives you different stud types in the same tire so that you’ve got extreme grip across a wider array of slippery surfaces. The Hakkapeliitta 9 SUV Studded truly is first class stability and sturdy handling for the harshest weather winter can throw at you.
These tires provide fantastic grip and control during all winter conditions. The studs are a little loud on dry pavement (as should be expected), but the extra noise is well worth it for the safe and easy ride the tires provide. I would be more than willing to spend the extra money on these tires again (quite expensive in comparison to other winter tires) due to the added confidence during winter driving that they provide.
