Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 Tires
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 is a touring, winter tire made to be mounted on passenger vehicles. Nokian’s environmentally friendly compound construction and the directional tread decrease the driving pressure affecting the tire. This significantly lowers the rolling resistance. The decreased rolling resistance lessens the vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions during the tire’s performance. The result is a fuel conscious driving experience.
The special winter compound and the directional tread design increase their grip on ice- and snow-covered road surfaces. The directional tread’s high-density saw-tooth siping detail and the V-shaped tread’s notched pattern work together to heighten the number of biting edges gripping the road surface. The compound keeps its ideal flexibility in colder temperatures. The angled lateral grooves avoid hydroplaning to ensure a secure winter weather performing capability.
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3’s directional tread pattern, with the optimal shoulder tread blocks, increases the model’s controllability. With the upgraded and constant road contact the steering becomes faster and more precise in its response to the driver’s commands, while the structure is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting the model. The shoulder blocks boost the cornering ability as they offer additional biting edges that firmly grip the road surface during the tire’s maneuvering. The better control over the tires enables the driver to confidently maneuver the vehicle in winter weather situations.
