Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 (studded) (DISCONTINUED)
Designed with 50% more studs than its predecessor while still quieter and less damaging to the road, the Hakkapeliitta 8 features a host of winter technologies including a saw-tooth edged pattern on the rear part of the tread blocks which improves the grip of the tire. The added structural reinforcement on the center section makes the tire more responsive to steering. Combining the anchor stud, flange design and the Eco Stud cushion with revolutionary stud placement ensures supreme grip and soft stud contact on all driving surfaces.
