Post Thoughts on Nokian Hakkas

Anyone bought them? If so how much for a set of 185/65/15? Do they handle good as the blizzak MZ-02? How's the wear (ie thread life)? Thanks.

I bought mine studded last year.
They should run you about $125 Cdn. each or cheaper.
Mine were $135 Cdn in 195/65/15 with studs + tax of course!

I recommend these studded or not. In your case no studs since you're from TO!

During the rally in Charlevoix, a lot of teams used them for Saturday and Sunday when it snowed. Pat Richard also used them if I am not mistaken.

Good luck
Jan

Sorry, the life time of the tire is extraordinary! My friend is doing his third winter on them, and they still look new! (I think the studs have a lot to do with that)
Performance wise, the studded tire is not great on dry, or wet, but once it's icy or snowy, not even the S4 or the Jeeps can keep up!

I ran the Q's last season on an OBS; absolutly loved them. We don't get enough snow/cold temperatures here to keep them from "cupping" from the heat. Otherwise, great on a dry road too.

Gambit,

I got them froma dealer in Laval.
The price was good, but this year they found out that they were a hot item, so they jacked up the prices!
I would recommend going to any tire place and asking, and then negotiate to about $120.

That should be perfect!

Cheers
Jan

My brother has hakka 1's on his '01 RS in 205/55-16. Only has about 3000km on them, but they are a very nice tire. Much better than blizzak in the dry, unstopable in the snow, and they should last longer because of the harder compound. However, one picked up a fast leak on the highway a blew out big time, split the sidewall half way around the tire at 120km/h, fun.... Not cheap in 1s either 210 each canadian. The shop did replace the flat for half price.
