Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 Tires

Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 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.
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 tire is a new premium product for the Northern winter, with many different innovations that can be felt and seen every day by winter drivers. The tire ushers in a new era that combines extreme winter safety and low road wear.
The new concept creates fantastic winter properties: supreme grip during braking and acceleration, better wear resistance, and driving comfort. This ensures the best possible grip under all conditions. A directional or fixed-direction tread model that is also symmetrical is the optimal choice for winter tires, since it supports the wide spacing of tyres in order to optimize grip and reduce driving noise.
The new tire offers peace of mind for surprising situations with its top braking grip that is further enhanced by the firm stud placement in the renewed cap & base structure. The specially tough rubber compound below the surface compound firmly locks the stud in the tread block, stabilizes driving on dry roads, and ensures an even wear pattern.
A significant innovation contributing to first-class winter grip, wear resistance, and noise level is the notable increase in the number of tread blocks. The larger number of tread blocks increases the number of grooves, that is, the number of gripping edges that contact the ice and snow as the tire comes into contact with the road surface.
