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 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!

        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.

          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.

            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.

              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.

                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.

                  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.

                      Purchased the Nokian Hakkapeliitta r3 for my BMW - all I can say is wow … I feel safe, the traction is great! I've been driving for 15 years and this is by far my favourite winter tire as of yet!!!

                        They use these tires in Europe extensively where it really snows for what seems like forever. The roads are plowed, but no salt is used- hence the need for really sophisticated rubber touching the road. I want the best and my Hakkapeliitta R3's give me the whole experience here in the USA, just like they have in Europe.

                          This is my 2nd set of Hakkapleiitta R3's and they are amazing under any winter conditions. I have never been stuck in 10 years of snow storms in upstate NY. I can go anywhere in any conditions in my Audi A6 with these tires. I also like that they handle great on dry pavement and are very quiet at highway speeds. Don't take any chances with all season tires get a 2nd set of rims and mount a set of R3's on them for piece of mind when you and / or your family members are out driving in snowy conditions.

                            Live in Winterpeg, plenty of ice and snow here. These tires are remarkable and looking forward to the deep snow. Vehicle is an Avalanche 1500 ZR. You will not be sorry you bought them!!

                              Absolutely crushes when it comes to snow & ice. Due to a long winter and sheer laziness, I kept these on my car year-round and they have held up incredibly despite multiple trips from Mammoth Lakes, CA to LA and back. Very solid and work really well. Obviously, due to these being a winter tire they are loud when moving at high speed, but they are by far the best winter tire on the market. I've tried several others in the past.

                                I've used Nokian Hakkapelitta R2's for nearly 20 years. In the snowpack of Colorado these tires cannot be beat. I put them on all my cars so that my kids and my wife can drive in any weather. Have the confidence that you have better traction than anyone else on the road. Simply the best, year after year.

                                    I've been a Nokian customer for over 10 years, so when I needed winter tires for my 2018 Tesla Model 3 RWD, I did not hesitate to purchase and promote the Hakkapeliitta R3's. In the Canadian (Ottawa area) winters, these are PHENOMINAL for traction in dry, wet, slushy and deep snow. I did not get stuck once and never felt uncomfortable driving in any condition. The noise level for a winter tire is pretty good. Do NOT hesitate to buy these tires for YOUR Tesla! :)

                                      Bought my R3s at the beginning of Wisconsin's winter season. With inconsistent snowfall and conditions, I wasn't sure if I maybe bought "too much" tire for the weather. Now it's February, and I'm confident made the right decision. I've truly needed these tires only a handful of times, and each time they have far outstripped anything else on the road, giving me the confidence and control I need when the rest of my city was paralyzed by snow.
