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.

Seem very "grippy" in the wet.
Glenn Dickinson told me about the Nokian snow tires, which I never heard of. I was looking for Michelin X ice. Did some research on line and took Glenn's advice. The guy knows his stuff, they are nice tires.
kind of cool sitting on the beach in hawaii , buying snow tires from a guy you can trust. He is the best.

Nokian Hakkapelita LT2 Studded

Great tyre! I’m actually glad I needed tyres this year! With all this freeze / thaw weather we have been having I am so glad I got the studded version. Great traction. I’ve also decided to put Nokian studded tyres on my sons Golf TDi this year and couldn’t be happier! Looks like I’m replacing my wife’s next year as her Nokian Hak 7 studded tyres just passed 100000k over the past 9 winters. Anything Nokian you can’t go wrong! Great service at Kal tire makes it even a better experience! Thanks to the staff at Kal and we will see you in the spring!
