Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT2 (Studded) LT225/75R17 E/10PR BSW
***Please note tires are Studded***
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT2 tire with studs is a winter tire designed for use on heavy SUVs, pick-ups and 4X4 vehicles. The steel belt package of this tire has over 60% more steel than passenger car tires. The studs make this tire pretty unbeatable for deep snow traction, or pulling power on packed snow road surfaces. Even without studs, this tire has superb grip on ice and plenty of deep snow traction.
The tire is reinforced like a tire for commercial applications so it has remarkable levels of durability in tough conditions, but still has a comfortable ride appropriate for premium fitments like BMW X5s, Jeep Cherokees or other luxury brand Crossovers. A safe and versatile tire for most northern winter climates.
Best winter tire ever
As a long time Michelin dealer, I have to admitt Nokian's snow tires are unparralled in their performance. I will only use these going forward.
Better than my wife's Blizzak's on ice
These tires are ridiculously good considering they're truck tires. Nothing but impressed. I can hear the sound of the studs outside, but not in the truck. Haven't lost any studs either. That was supposedly a problem.
Good Winter tires
These are good tires for snow and ice covered roads. I travel 50 miles a day and half that distance is ice and packed snow. I got the Hakkapeliittas for my truck because that was what is available. Over deep snow I feel the Nordman 7 is better if they are available in the size you need. Fuel mileage is excellent because of the low rolling resistance.
Best rated winter tire is absolute truth.
I looked for the best rated tires and then added studded. This new technology makes them quieter than my summer all terrain tires. Also dispells the myth that studded tires damaged roads.
Ford Superduty 4X4
Awesome tires that handle any conditions. I've used them for years and love them
