Nokian's Hakkapeliitta R3 is a studless winter tire capable of navigating Canada's snowy mountain passes. By embedding tough Cryo Crystal particles into the tire, this studless tire achieves exceptional traction on ice, as proven in our independent road tests. The R3 received top-tier scores in cornering and braking on snow and ice while maintaining a quiet ride with little risk of hydroplaning. And, when the roads are dry, you can expect high-quality performance from these high-quality Nokian winter tires.

?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.

I did not receive the tires that I had ordered.

Instead I was given another set of tires as I was falsely told that the tires I ordered were available. I was not given advanced notice of this and my appointment was canceled the day before.

The set of tires they had temporarily given me were 3.7% larger then the specified specifications and was falsely told that my speedometer would automatically be adjusted because I have a Tesla. I still have not received the tires I had ordered.

The original winter tire is still the best!

Nokian invented winter tires and they still know them best! Compared to others I’ve tried (Michelin X-Ice Snow and Bridgestone Blizzak), the Hakkapeliittas accelerate, brake, and turn better—but their most valuable aspect is how progressively they slip. No unexpected behaviour from them: if you’re about to slide, you feel it long before you realize you’re driving sideways. As well, they’re quiet and comfortable on both ice and plowed pavement, with no price premium compared to the other brands.
