An Excellent Aggressive/Extreme Winter Tire

★★★★★ 5/5

I've run many different winter tires over the years including the older Hakkapeliitta R2. I fit a set of the new Hakka R3 winter tires to our BMW wagon about a month ago and winter hit Michigan early. They offer excellent grip in all conditions, especially snow/slush/ice. Importantly, they are also friendly/refined in the rain and dry especially when you consider this is a proper 'Arctic' winter tire. Sure, grip levels in the rain and dry aren't super high but they perform better than most other hardcore winter tires in those conditions and I've never wanted for more traction. The Hakka R3 is an excellent winter tire.

    Had Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season on my BMW 535 xdrive and was unable to go anywhere when it snowed, it was so bad I thought the car was just not made for snow then purchased these Nokians and I am in total amazement. My car drives as well in the snow as my 4 wheel drive Toyota 4runner. Awesome Winter Tire and very smooth and quiet.

      I had the Nokian WR G3 all weather tires on my previous car and was very happy with the performance regardless of the season. I recently purchased a new car with AWD and opted to purchase the best winter tires on the market, the Hakkapeliitta R3. While we have not had a major snow fall to test them out, the R3's performance during heavy rains was a good as the OEM all-season run flats and there is no noticeable increase in tire noise on wet or dry payment with temperatures near the freezing point. The WR G3 all weather impressed me with the ability to handle the worst winter can throw at them so I am sure the R3's will impress me even more.

        Amazing Audi Q5 Michigan

        I bought these tires two months ago, my first choice didn't agree with my car. I have never used this brand before, to be honest i have never heard of this brand. But i wanted to try something new. The Hakkapelitta R3 are amazing. I don't thing i have ever had this much confidence on the road. All my friend run snow tires of different brands and i use to have all seasons. We take turns driving places and their vehicles seemed to be stable on the roads. Until we took a ride with this R3, OMG these tires stick to the road and i have never experienced anything like it. On ice there is a little slip but no fish tail. The highways are now death traps because Michigan no longer uses sand/salt mix on the roads. All seasons wont help you. You have to spend the extra money and get winter tires. I am not saying to buy this brand but i will say try it because this is something new to me and my friends were blown away by the grip of these tires on ice and snow. I am no expert but i know confidence and drive a lot of highway miles in the winter. Its all about the tires and this one is a winner on my SUV. I even took the sand bags out of the trunk because i don't need them now. This company has got me for life if they keep this up.

          Best Winter tire for a GENESIS

          Purchased 45 days ago and have been through 2 snowstorms already. After storms, it was driving on packed snow and ice at 6 degrees. These tires are amazing. They replaced a set of Michelin Primacy All Seasons that are almost 2 years old and 19,897 miles. I know the R3's are new, but there is no comparison. Where I used to have problems with the Michelin's when they were new, these R3's just excelled.

            Wow do these tires ever work really good in the winter because that is what they were designed for. Compared to my summer tires these work much better on ice.

              I bought these for my Acura RDX, they are ridiculously good. I had no sliding around at all in deep snow, light snow, slush and minimal sliding on ice. I have had numerous winter tires and these by far are clearly better than the others. Just awesome, they did seem to show more wear than the other tires but I don't care, what I cared about was the performance. Felt so secure on the road, I was waiting for it to snow and I hate inclement weather at my age. The only time I turned back was because I couldn't see the road anymore not because of the traction!

                These are the best winter tires I have ever had. Up here in Michigan in snow and ice simply perfect tires.

                  I have driven on these all winter in Seattle and they were supremely grippy and were 100% dependable in the worst conditions - blizzards, snow covered highways, unplowed roads, ice, thick slush, standing water. With electric AWD I did not need chains once, even going up moderate hills.

                    Ok, let it said straight, i'm leaving north east of canada where we have snow from november to end of march, i'm doing 13000 km / years. I'm driving a honda accord 2018. The R3 is the best tire i lever got. Traction, ice driving, wet road, name it. This years, i only used 1/32 of the tread, very amazing for a winter tire. Sound is ok for a winter tire. Fuel economy is also great.
