Outstanding winter tires

I bought the Hakkapeliitta 8's for my Ford Expedition after experience with Nokian winter tires on another vehicle we own. I knew they'd be good, but I was still surprised with how good they actually were. The traction on packed snow and ice is incredible, even without using 4WD. Driving in the Alberta winter just got a whole lot safer

    The best winter tire I have had

    I bought these for my 2014 Toyota Highlander LTD, and have not regreted that decesion at all. Dealler wanted me to go for Blizzaks, but I said I wanted the Hak's. They do not know how to sand where I live and roads get that polished ice that other non-studded tires (Michelin X-Ice II, and Toyo GSI-5 Observe I think it was, these are very good, but non studded tires} have problems stopping on, as it is so extremely slippery, like oil on top of the ice. These so far have stopped and started great on packed snow with some ice, even though no polished ice this year, but on a ski trip to BC they worked great and even the wife and I can not tell a increase in sound inside the SUV, that is with my hearing aids in too. Would like to try them in deep snow and polished ice, but this year the winter had been really mild, about 1/4 to 1/3 the snow as normal, but will use these from now on, on all my vehicle when it comes time to replacing the winter tires that is.

      Have had the Hakka 8 installed on my Subaru 10 days ago. Great timing since we have had snow, icy rain and all sorts of driving conditions since then. I am extremely pleased with their performance. My only pre-purchase concern was the noise level, but this proves to be not such of an issue. Slighly more noise than with my previous non-studded tires, but less than when my I have my ski/bike carrier on top.

        Bought 4 Nokian Hakka 8 Studded For my Mazda CX-5, they handle well in snow, ice and mud. Sadly from the 4 i bought initially 3 were defective (out-of-round) and i'm still fighting with the installer to get them changed even tought they have been defective from the start. I did prefer the Hakka 7 studded i had before, they made less noise on dry asphalt.

          Just installed my 285/50/20s For the second time. Today September 20, 2016. I have a modified SRT Jeep these tires balanced with an average of 1.50 ounces of weights which is incredible. These are best tires for Alberta's winter weather....PERIOD. I love these tires and feel very confident with them. I normally do not write reviews but they are worth every penny and have saved me a few times.. Simply Awesome. Thanks Nokian.

              These winter tires are very good on ice and in deep snow. I put non studded Hakka 8 on my Chevrolet Silverado 2014 and even I don't engaged the 4WD, the traction is always good and braking distance too !! It's the better winter tire I never buy and I had TOYO before !!!

                We've put some miles on them anD they are wearing very well (as in not really at all). Road trip without a spot of snow, a couple heavy winter snow storms and a couple rain storms. On dry pavement they have some noise but less than the other snow tires I have. However they are comfortable and stable, more so than my stock duellers. In the snow they outperform all the other snow tires I've used. 160 mile round trip commute to work in Idaho so I spend lots of time in the snow. You will plow snow with your bumper before the tires give. To get stuck you'd probably have to high center. I'll admit that I do slide around when I try real hard. Great traction from stopping, to accelerating to doing doughnuts in empty parking lots

                  Hands down the best tires on the market. Already after a few snow storms in southern QC. They have proven to be very efficient on all kinds of weather. They are so good that I'm often the only one on the left lane of major highways at 110 KMPH while people on the right are going at 50 KMPH.
