Given 72% while driving a Volvo XC60 (225/45 R18) on mostly town for 8,000 easy going miles
Seems to have better dry and wet grip in colder temperatures, is a good allround tire for scandinavian conditions. Feels a bit soft and unprecice compared to continental, but not too much in it. Comfertable and seems to wear ok.

Latest Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV Reviews

Given 72% while driving a Mercedes Benz EQC (235/55 R19) on a combination of roads for 9,300 average miles
Fitted in a staggered setup, tyres are good when there’s snow and ice but perform average in slush/wet conditions. Don’t get me wrong, you won’t drive off the road when there’s rain, you just have to adjust your speed a bit more. I had the LM005 on my bmw and they are superior on wet tarmac compared. Tyres are a bit soft in corners and there is a weird resonance noise when driving at 55-65kmph in our car. Have had these for 2 winters and there’s almost no wear (car has driven about 60% on these tyres). Nokian has never let me down, but they are not necessary the right tire for my use (as they usually come fitted by default when you buy a new car here and there’s only 2-3 weeks of snow on the road, then it’s just wet and salty).
