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 snow, and near-perfect scores for ice. This tire also performed admirably in the dry and wet testing segments, while also garnering a near ‘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.

I drive a 2010 Audi TTS and this car has been modded so it’s even more fun. The other snow tires were Yokohama Ice Guard IG52C. And while great in deep snow, on dry or even wet roads they were super noisy. Also when driving aggressive the car would slip around way to easily. The new Nokian Hakka R3’s are out standing, no more noise and the grip is unreal. Even under launch control on snow covered roads the car tracks straight. Ive also put a set on the GF’s Q7 TDI. She loves the new tires and they have increased her winter driving ability.

I purchased a set of Nokian Hakkapeliita R3's after having a very disappointing experience with a set of BF Goodrich Winter T/A KSI tires.

The Kal Tire team was extremely helpful and speedy with the exchange process. Since changing to these tires, I have driven on roads in all conditions. Extreme winter conditions are no match for these tires, and when the weather warms up, driving on dry pavement feels like you have a set of all seasons on your car.

Wet, icy, snowy, dry/cold pavement, these tires provide confidence no matter the weather.

In the future, I will definitely buy another pair of Nokian winter tires! I highly recommend them!
