    Studded Hak 9's on the wifes school bus. They are the best winter tires I have ever used.

    I just put a set of K02's on my truck that replaced a set of toyo M55 that were great on gravel and off road and towing but shitty for everyday driving.

    First impression of the Hakka r3’s is they are quiet as hell for a winter tire. They have great grip on snow and ice as I found out this evening. Overall if they wear well I will be happy with them.

    The compromise of them being awesome on ice is that they're a soft rubber... if you do any amount of highway driving you'll likely see them wear more quickly than you'd care for.

    From what I can tell the Nokian Nordmans are previous model Hakkas made from a bit harder rubber that seems to have a bit less traction but wear a bit better. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    From what I gather the aren’t supposed to wear as fast as the Hakka r2 but time will tell.

    Looking like another dud here.... unless something major changes, I won't even need to plow. +14 and rain on the Saturday.... that'll wipe out the snow.

    I quite enjoyed having someone in a jacked up Dodge Ram pass me going way too fast for the conditions, get about 100’ ahead of me then lose control and end up in the median on the 102

    It was a good thing I didn't assume a red light meant stop for the drivers coming down Cobequid Road last night. I would imagine the truck with plow t-boning me would have killed me.

    Yeah. I was hoping there was a company logo or something, but nope. Just lucky I was fully alert and not daydreaming. I'm pretty sure the guy in front of me had no clue what was actually happening though.

    I try to always look before hitting the gas at intersections. It's actually saved me few times.
