Nokian earned its reputation as the authority on winter tires. And they've proven their ability to iterate on that achievement with the Hakkapeliitta 9 SUV studded winter tire. Nokian's unique double-stud design provides top-tier traction in any condition. Our independent road testing shows unparalleled braking and cornering results in the snow and on ice while boasting exceptional hydroplane resistance and very good performance on wet and dry roads. Given the metal studs that deliver the firm grip and steady handling you expect from a Nokian tire, don't anticipate a quiet ride on bare roads. But, if you're looking for a reliable studded winter tire for your SUV, Nokian's Hakkapeliitta 9 is worth the investment. Not available in Quebec.

"Noisy but decent lateral grip in wet and dry conditions. This is a strong snow and ice tire."

?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.

Best Winter Tire I’ve Ever Owned

I’m very happy with my purchase. I got into a few precarious situations this winter, and these babies handled them well. Amazing in all winter conditions. Black ice is black ice, and no tires I’ve ever owned were 100% effective, however these studded tires were the most effective travelling at a very safe speed.

I had year old full winter rated ice and snow tires from an offshore brand that my truck was struggling to get me up our steep road in 4x4 without spinning out and having to back down and walk. After a few long walks home I broke down and got the studded Nokians and made it up the same icy conditions in 2 wheel drive! My mi d was blown.
