Expert Review

Although Nokian is not yet very well-known in North American, this Finland-based company has for years been making the best winter tires available. The Hakkapeliitta R2 is the upgraded version of the previous Hakkapeliitta R, which delivered excellent traction and handling all-around in snow and ice, as well as on cold, dry pavement. The Hakkapeliitta R2 builds upon this, creating a winter tire that’s even better than the best.

This tire handles deep snow with no problem while offering excellent grip and exceptional handling on ice and snow. Stopping distances and dry pavement handling are improved over the previous version, with precise steering and plenty of feedback. Although the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 tires are expensive, there is no other stud-less winter tire offering this level of snow and ice traction and performance.Rating: 4.75/5
