Even better than the Hakkapeliitta 7

★★★★★ 5/5
2 years ago
The 7's were outstanding in all severe conditions, but the 9s are even more outstanding. Quieter than the 7 with even better traction on glare ice, deep snow, or worst case ice covered by loose snow. 4 wheel drive is not 4 wheel stop, but with the Hakkapeliitta 9 you will get the best traction your vehicle and tire combination can provide.

    We equiped our 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with those Haka 9 SUV Studed and the experience is so far very impressive on every type of winter road. Here in northern Quebec winters are often very punishing and roads are sometimes not so well maintained foremost where we exactly live about 5 minutes ride from the Ontario borders and that is the main reason why I'd invest in such a perfect combination for our security and piece of mind; Nokian and a Jeep !! This is the best winter thrill we ( me and my wife) ever experienced so far in our lifes!! Very Icy roads, slushes, severe snow storms are all now all very good reasons to get out for shopping or simply go to a cofee shop !!! I swear that this is that much cool and confident; Thank You So Much Nokian !!!!

      We own two work trucks that are required to respond to emergency calls 24/7/365. The work trucks are equipped with Hakkapeliitta LT2s which which we are very happy. Based on the experience with the LT2s I purchased these tires in fall 2017 for the 2017/18 winter in 2015 Subaru Outback. I work for a local utility and am required to respond to stormy emergencies. I wanted to have the best winter traction I could find without compromising the ride comfort. I have previously used Blizzak WS80 and Continental WinterContact Sis on the same car. Thes Hakka's have fantastic traction with only the WS80's close to the Hakka's in traction. The Continental's were very comfortable winter tires, but did not quite have the same level of traction as the other two tires. My major grip with the Hakka's is the noise. I have added about 40 pounds of sound deadening in the doors and other areas of the subaru. Unfortunately, these tires were still unbearably loud and forced me to make a change. Going forward, I will probably stick to the new Hakka R3 or go back to the Blizzaks

        Best snow tire I've ever owned!

        This is my 3rd set of Nokian winter tires. But my first set of studded Nokians. The Hakkapeliitta 9 studded has proved itself an unmatched snow tire, versus other manufacturers I've had in the past (studded and non). It provides a very confident and predictable response in deep snow and icy road conditions. Driving around stuck or sliding vehicles without batting an eye. Sounds weird to say, but I want more snow!

          I have run Toyo Observes on the last three vehicles (Audi, Cadillac, BMW) and was very happy with them but could not find that tire in a 21" size for our newly acquired 2017 Audi Q7. I recently moved to an area that sees more snow than other parts of the valley and our driveway is steep. A studded tire seemed to be the prudent way to go. These were recommended by a friend at church who either owns or has owned Nokians before. He told me they were awesome and assured me I would not be sorry. I researched the Nokian Hakkapellita 9 SUV and found more positive reviews than negative ones. That, combined with my friend's recommendation, prompted me to spring for a set even though they were extremely expensive. My point of view is that if these prevent even one accident they have already paid for themselves. These are an awesome tire and I am very pleased with their performance. I just completed a 550 mile round trip with a good portion of it on very bad roads. The vehicle felt extremely "planted" and never gave any indication of losing grip (except for an icy bridge deck where I was probably pushing it a bit to much). My driveway presents a challenge as well but the Q7 climbs up to the top without a hint of slippage, even on ice. I have to say that their dry highway manners came as quite a surprise. These things handle beautifully! I never expected a winter tire to ride and handle as well as this. I even like them better than my Pirelli Scorpion all-season tires that I run during the spring, summer and fall. My only complaint so far is the noise level but that is to be expected when you run studs on bare asphalt. My car is normally very quiet so I miss that but you get used to the sound after a while and it is a small price to pay for security. The only other issue is the cost. These are astronomical by comparison to other brands of studded tires. Discount Tire offered a 10% discount in the form of a prepaid MasterCard if you purchased a complete set of 4 winter tires so that helped. No tire can guarantee perfect grip and absolute safety but if these can't handle the type of roads that you are driving on, you probably should be sitting home by the fireplace instead.

            terrible quality control on this tire.

            Terrible quality control for these tires. Studs are falling out one by one as the winter wears on. They were no problem the 1st winter but now they fall out daily. We have purchased many sets of Nokian tires over the past 5 years most are studded and were 110%. Now after this issue we won't be purchasing their products from now on. Very disappointing product.

              This is my second winter running these Hakkas on my 2018 Subaru Outback and they help me accelerate off the line faster than any other vehicle on ice or snow. It's funny looking back in my rearview mirror and seeing cars, SUVs or trucks half a block, or more, behind me struggling to get traction. Yes they are a little louder than non-studded tires and aren't great at stopping on dry asphalt but most of my friends are now convinced studded tires are there only way to go in Alberta.

                I bought a 2019 Outback which I use to travel back and forth from CT to VT every weekend. Our home there is on a mountain road and ice becomes an issue. Bad weather and I still need to get to the mountain to teach so inferior tires are not an excuse! These tires got me up and down those mountain roads with not a slide to be had! HIGHLY recommend for anyone who wants added piece of mind. Have another set of Nokian studded on another Outback I sent my son to the Denver area with and again, amazing! They are hands down the best...way to go Nokian! (PS here in CT they think I am crazy but, I am just safety conscious and not crazy!)

                  I have run dedicated snow tires on my wife's car for years. When we purchased a newer car last year and was on the hunt for a new set of snow tires, I happened upon the Nokian brand. After looking through all the reviews and videos that I could find I decided on a set of the Hakkapelitta 9 SUV tires. We got a lot of snow last winter and I was extremely impressed with how these tires function in all conditions. I live in Utah and travel mountain passes in Utah and Colorado quite frequently. Even on warm dry roads they hold together well and don't get too squishy feeling like some other snow tires. They are very noisy, but i knew that going into it they would be. When you run any winter/snow tire you need to realize that they have a few drawbacks to consider, such as noise and potentially decreased fuel economy. I would recommend these tires to anyone and have already recommended to many. I feel so much better with these tires on while transporting my family in winter conditions.

                    I bought these for my 2018 Honda Pilot last winter, and I have never regretted that decision. Our roads have been particularly icy this winter, and cars are sliding off the roads left and right. With these tires, ice is not an issue at all. Driving at reasonable speeds (no tire will save you if you speed on ice), I have yet to feel any significant slipping. If you are able to spend a little extra to get a set of these tires, you will find it is money well spent when those icy days/nights arrive. PS, I have had very few studs come out over the course of 2 winters, especially compared with other studded tires I have owned.
