For SUV owners who want a dependable set of non-studded winter tires, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV delivers a smooth, quiet ride, along with superior grip and handling in a variety of conditions. Whether it was on dry or wet surfaces, or in slushy, snowy or icy conditions, this tire performed well above average, earning either ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’ ratings in each of the categories of our independent testing program. The compound used in the Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV contains diamond-tough Cryo Crystal 3 particles, which improve grip on icy surfaces. That, combined with Nokian’s Snow Claw technology, ensures this product maintains control in all winter driving conditions. The tire’s sidewalls are built using aramid fibres, which add durability and puncture resistance from external forces. Not available in Quebec.

?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.

So far the new tires are great. Quiet, comfortable ride for winter tires. Handled fine on dry & rainy roads so will now wait to see how they do 8n the snow.

Couldn’t be happier with the tires. Very grippy in the snow and ice; a huge improvement over my all season tires!
