I bought 5 years ago for my SUV. Still I can use them for 3 years more. Peace of mind in winter.

    Amazing Winter Tire

    ★★★★★ 5/5

    I purchased a set of Hakkapeliiitta R3 SUV tires (275/50/R20) to run on a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. We have already had a few large snow storms this season in the Northeast and these tires performed even better than expected. They got me through a 260 mile journey from Connecticut up to Stowe, VT during a blizzard with zero hesitation. Most of the trip was highway travel at 60 mph with 1"-2" of snow on the ground and then through 2 ft of snow to reach my destination. These tires give me confidence and performance I need to drive up to the mountain to catch some fresh powder or to get around town during any condition. As an added bonus they are extremely quiet and have a very comfortable ride. I've run Blizzaks on all my previous vehicles and if the R3's wear at a reasonable rate, I will be making a permanent switch. Im very happy with my purchase.

      They work well on the dry. They are quiet. They have very poor grip on slippery surface, worst than my all seasons. Disappointed.

        Hands down best winter SUV tire

        I bought these in the end of Sept 2018 and had them installed the moment the temps stayed below 45°. While slightly more noisy than my all-season tires, the ride, handling, and comfort were comparable to my all-season tires. They performed well on dry and wet pavement. The winter in West Michigan started off with a bang and these tires quickly went to work carrying me into my northern sales territories. These tires were rock stars. I was not tense while driving. Amazing stopping power, plowed through slush like it wasn’t there, climbed steep snow covered hills without engaging traction control, and had a predictable and controlled breaking point. My main concern was tore wear with as much as I drive but so far they are holding up better than expected. Here at the end of January 2019, we have had a cold snap seeing temps as low as -13° F with wind, ice, and snow. These tires just seem to grab even more the colder and icier it gets. Even my coworkers have noticed the ease at which my vehicle handles the elements with these tires and they demand I drive when we head across state or up north. You can’t put a price on safety and peace of mind. Buy yourself some dedicated Nokian Hakka R3 tyres. You won’t be disappointed.

          We live in Quebec, Canada, where winter means lots of snow, slush, ice, and sloppy roads.. -25 to -45 on a regular base.These tires did a great job in any sort of inclement winter weather, performs admirably in braking, acceleration, and cornering in snowy conditions!!

            I put four Hakkapelitta R3s (275/45/20) on my 2019 Volvo XC90. I have been very pleased with the way these wide tires handle on Alaska roads thus far this winter. Acceleration, braking, and steering performance is excellent on snow and ice. These chunky tires also look great and the name is fun to say!
