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.

The car seams to tract better probably because you did an alignment. They are a little nosier than summer tires which was expected. I am very happy with the new tires.

The Nokian Hakka R3s are amazing on my Mazda 3, driving on Winnipeg roads during colder temps! It grips on snow easily and I’m impressed with how quiet it is on dry pavement compared to other winter tires. Winnipeg’s winter seasons usually get pretty extreme and those Nordic tires are a perfect match in the making.

These tires are quiet, electric vehicles really bring that out. So far I haven't encountered snow, but there has been a little rain on the island and with the water flowing over the roads these tires really held the road. On the back roads I hit a few puddles that ended up being deep and the car tracked perfectly. Never felt sketchy in all that rain.
