while driving a
(245/40 R18) on
a combination of roads
Bought these tires used (like ~5 mm tread depth remaining) just to drive them for one season and did not expect them to be that bad actually. The worst part of them is the noise (they are super noisy). Before I drove used winter studded tires (also Nokian) on the same car and it does not come even close to the level of noise of Hakka Black when you drive on a dry pavement. I understand that the tire I put is not new and is quite worn, but based on my experience (even from badly worn Chinese tires), this is not really acceptable. The second issue is the overall handling of the car - it becomes less predictable on highway speeds (not in terms of grip, but rather stability) and the ride quality does not feel good.
There was also one review here from the guy for the same tire, and even same tire size and car class - he shares similar thoughts. Therefore, I would not recommend to go for Hakka Black... in used condition definitely. I will change them asap.
FYI: I am driving in Sweden where road conditions are generally quite well maintained and the summer season in the area I live is more extended compared to the rest Sweden, though we have a considerable mix between wet and dry weather.
