Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 Studded Tire
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 Studded tires are probably the best winter tires available today. The unique stud design allows these tires to claw into ice and packed snow while special rubber compounds and tread design enhance grip and handling.
The previous version of this tire, the Hakkapeliitta 7 Studded, held the Guinness land speed record for a car on ice until it was supplanted by the current Hakkapeliitta 8 Studded winter tire. These tires handle extreme winter conditions outstandingly well, with users commenting that even driving on sheer ice feels like regular pavement.
Performance and handling are predictable and controllable with a feeling of driver confidence at all times. Perhaps the only downside to these tires is they’re not suitable for dry and wet performance, as the case with all studded tires. However, for extreme winter conditions, it’s almost impossible to do any better.
