  • Positive - Grip on wet and dry roads, handling on wet and dry roads, comfort
  • Negative - Low resistance to aquaplaning
  • Overall - Average aquaplaning results, but otherwise the Nokian Hakka Black is little inferior to the leaders of the test. On wet roads the car starts to slide smoothly and always predictable. The same can be said about the handling on dry roads. Good tyres, but better to avoid deep puddles.

    Top 3 Nokian Hakka Black Reviews

    Given 39% while driving a Mercedes Benz E280 Sport (245/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
    2 out of 4 tires was "more oval than round". Visible to the naked eye for anyone, including a couple of mechanics at two different workshops. Nokian on the other hand claimed they were perfect and wouldn't replace them under warranty. Seller replaced them without Nokian's backing.

    The tires are rock hard, noisy, creates a bumpy and uncomfortable ride. Even in a Mercedes E-class with new suspension and wheels the tires causes lots of vibration both in low and higher speeds, and makes the car jump around with small constant jumps unless the tarmac is completely perfect.
    A Nokian representative uses some fancy measuring devices and concluded the tires was perfect so this type of behavior from the tires was how things was supposed to be.

    I've had more noisy tires before, like the Toyo T1 model. But nothing as uncomfortable and horrible to drive as these Nokian Hakka Black.

    Given 79% while driving a Audi A6 3.0 TDI Quattro (245/45 R18 W) on mostly town for 15,000 average miles
    Tires are soft. Very well keep the road at low temperatures. However, at an air temperature of more than +25 C, a rather rapid wear begins with an active ride. Sidewall holds the blows well. Four times wheels fell into pits up to 5 cm at a speed of 60-80 km / h - the hernia was not formed. Of the disadvantages - sensitive to rutting.
