***Please note tires are Studded***
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV tire with studs is the newest Nokian winter tire with excellent traction for the broad range of snow, ice and bare road conditions. It is extra strong for the added weight and higher center of gravity of SUVs and trucks thanks to the new Aramid Reinforced Structure. This is a good tire choice for anyone that lives in a climate with unpredictable winter weather.
In addition to the studs, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV with studs has tread features like open grooves for snow traction, plenty of sipes for biting edges on ice, and a pliable tread rubber that stays soft on extremely cold dry roads. Even without studs, the latest generation Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV will impress you with remarkable handling on wet and dry roads, and a sport truck and performance tire feel on dry cold winter roads. When you add in the factory installed studs, this is a very safe tire in all conditions, and a great winter tire option for a large range of SUVs, pick-up trucks or 4X4 vehicles in harsh winter climates.
The Hakkapeliitta 8 series, with or without studs, leads in many Consumer Reports winter tire performance tests, and is absolutely the latest and greatest winter tire from the leader in premium winter tires.
