Great Tire

This is a wonderful snow tire. I first tried the Hakkapelitta R2 and it was terrible in snow and ice. I was sliding all over the road! I have never had a snow tire that bad. The tire store was wonderful and changed it to the Hakkapelitta 8 for me and WOW what a difference! Make sure you get this tire and not the R2!
