The Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 is a non-studded winter tire that combines elements of safety, comfort and driving enjoyment. This tire comes packed with innovative features that are designed to inspire driving confidence in all winter conditions. Our independent testing panel gave the Hakkapeliitta R3 top marks for both braking and cornering in ice and snow, and near-perfect scores for slush. This tire also performed admirably in the dry and wet testing segments, while also garnering an ‘excellent’ rating for road noise. In addition to sipes that adapt to an array of weather conditions, the tire utilizes a rubber compound that has Cryo Crystal 3 particles embedded into it. These super-tough crystal particles significantly improve the tire’s ability to grip icy surfaces. The result is a tire that makes driving precise and enjoyable.

?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.

Good Tires, slow leak?
3
1 day ago by MICHEL MERCREDI.

I have a slow leak, I seem to drop 1 psi per day, and have to top off the air once per week. No idea what's going on, may have to bring the vehicle in to get the tires resealed. I'm keeping an eye on it and will bring it in if this continues. It's just a pain, and I have to find time to do it.

Tires them selves are awesome, great winter tires.

Tires have everything I expected them to be, I've put over 2500 km's on them in the last month and a half. I'll be bring them back in to get them rebalanced because I'm getting a little vibration when I start to drive.

Would definitely get them again and the service has been top notch.
