Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV Tires

Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV Tires

On Feb. 1, 1999 the U.S. Rubber Manufacturer's Association (RMA) and the Rubber Association of Canada (RAC) established a winter tire grading standard for tires exceeding specific snow traction performance requirements. These tires are specifically designed for use in severe snow conditions. Tires meeting this standard are embossed on their sidewall with the severe service symbol of a peaked mountain with a snowflake. This standard helps drivers choose a tire that will help make their winter driving safer.
Features/Benefits:
• Hakkapeliitta Cryo Silane Gen 2 tread compound. Excellent winter grip under all temperatures, excellent wear resistance, and lower fuel consumption. The large amount of natural rubber keeps the compound flexible under all conditions. The sipes on the tread blocks work actively regardless of variations in grip level and temperature. Superior winter grip is ensured both near zero degrees and at very low temperatures. Added rapeseed oil increases the tear strength and ice grip of the compound.
• Nokian Tyres manufactured the world's first winter tyre to match the winter frost in 1934. Two years later, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta was born in the Nordic winter; currently, it is one of the most well-known winter tyre brands in the world. 2014 is the 80th anniversary of the invention of the winter tyre.
• Like its predecessor, the new Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV has a directional tread pattern and a fixed direction of rotation. Thousands of winter tests tell the same story: The directional and symmetrical tread pattern is the ideal choice for demanding, varying winter conditions. The symmetrical tread pattern of the stylish Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV supports wide stud placement, which optimises grip and reduces driving noise. The strong arrow shape of the tread pattern effectively prevents slush-planing. At the same time, the tread has the best possible self-cleaning properties in deep snow.
• This sporty grip champion is the result of nearly four years of careful development. Due to the determined testing at Nokian Tyres' own test centres in Ivalo and Nokia, the Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV carries and controls its high wheel loads stably and firmly, regardless of whether driving on ice, snow, dry roads, or hazardous slush. In addition to the weather, drivers on Northern roads face challenges in the form of uneven, frost-damaged roads, and the cutting edges of curb stones.
