Latest Nordman North 9 Reviews

Given 83% while driving a Toyota Yaris (185/60 R15) on a combination of roads for 3,000 average miles
At first I was skeptical about this tire, as I live in Canada Calgary, snowfalls are high and this tire brand is new and has no reviews online. The tread design is based on the Nokian Hakka 9.

Dry, the noise is noticeable because of the studs, but in wet conditions you won’t notice the noise which actually surprised me. I have driven over 100 km/h on wet conditions, it’s quiet.

In the snow, it handles amazingly. I have entered tight corners at (40 km/h) to see if the car would understeer or oversteer. Guess what? It doesn’t, it keeps me stable.
In the ice, lots of traction from stop and go. (Sometimes I drive aggressively but most of the time I drive normally and slow)
In slight curves, (driving fast, not highway but on residential roads, people in my area drive 30-40 km/h on those curves but I drive 60 km/h on those curves) i can predict that the car is going to slip or not which is a good thing as the tire is predictable.
For the studs, compared to Nokian Hakka 9, even though it has the same tread design, the studs on nokian hakka 9 have 2 types of studs, the triangular one on the shoulders. On the north 9, the shoulder studs and middle studs are all the same and no triangular ones.

I was about to buy the continental VikingContact 7 but I decided to go for this tire as it was cheaper and has studs.
