Awesome winter tires

ShawnR35 • 6 months ago

These tires have made it so my Ford Focus doesn’t slide all over the road in slush and snow. I was able to drive at reasonably safe speeds on snowy roads without having to worry about driving too slow just to be safe and creating traffic due to underperforming tires.

Best ever ice and snow tires

Nesker • 9 months ago

It made my Volvo S40 take our icy hill as if it were a different car altogether, climbing the snow covered ice like it was a 4-wheel drive Safari truck. Unbelievable.

Consistently Excellent

rockandrollerCanada • 20 months ago

I first discovered these tires back in 2001 when I moved to Northern Europer (EVERYONE uses Nokian Tyres winter tires there). In 2012 I moved back to Canada and the first thing I did was buy some Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta snow tires. I'm on my 3rd set so far, and definitely these snow tires have served me EXTREMELY WELL over the past decade of Canadian winters!

Winter can be unpredictable and hazardous, but your tires should not. The Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta R5 covers all northern winter conditions and performs predictably on bare, wet, icy and snowy roads. A Double Block Grip design offers superior grip and handling, while the excellent ice performance is guaranteed by unique Arctic Grip Crystals. Microscopic crystals work like built-in studs. As the tire wears down, the crystals emerge and activate a grip reserve to help keep you safe on your journeys.


Tire noise can affect driving comfort significantly. Lower noise levels can make the journey more comfortable and less exhausting for the driver. The Hakkapeliitta R5 offers a smooth, comfortable and steady soundscape. Pleasant sound levels have been achieved by eliminating the most disturbing noise peaks the human ear can distinguish. The Silent Touch tread design offers comfortable and pleasant rolling thanks to its tread block distribution.


Starting from the material selection, the Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta R5 has been designed to leave a smaller carbon footprint. Our Green Trace compound offers excellent winter grip, better mileage, and low rolling resistance. The large amount of natural rubber keeps the compound flexible under all conditions. Low rolling resistance generates fuel savings and cuts down on harmful emissions. More than one third of the materials in the compound are renewable and recycled.


High-quality tires bring out the best in powerful electric vehicles. Battery packs inside EV and hybrid vehicles make them heavier and slower to stop than cars with combustion engines. Nokian Tyres products are designed to provide extra grip to compensate for the added weight, providing drivers peace of mind on the road. The right tire should also increase an EV or hybrid vehicle's driving range. Nokian Tyres helps you drive further. We’ve made strides to minimize our tires’ rolling resistance, decreasing the amount of energy needed for each journey. Our products will take your EV or hybrid further with a single charge while minimizing its environmental footprint.

Impeccable ice grip

Arctic Grip Crystals. Microscopic, third-generation grip crystals are mixed in the tread rubber. These crystals work like built-in studs, creating sharp, tough grip edges inside the rubber. As the tire wears down, the crystals emerge and activate the grip reserve.

Superior grip and handling

Double Block Grip design offers superior grip and handling, which can be seen especially on the shoulder areas of the tire. The stiff row of tread blocks starts from the center and is split in two moving towards the shoulder area. Compared to its predecessor, the Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta R5 has 40% more tread blocks on the shoulder and intermediate area. This increase means that the contact area has more rubber touching the surface, which results in better grip on slippery surfaces.

Safe and green mobility

Hakkapeliitta R5 is a durable, comfortable and extremely energy efficient winter tire. Lighter rolling saves fuel and extends the range of electric vehicles. Due to the lightly rolling tread design and the Green Trace compound, the rolling resistance of the Hakkapeliitta R5 has been improved even further. The eco-friendly driving features come from ingredients like natural rubber, recycled steel, plant derived oils and pine resin. More than one third of the compound consists of renewable and recycled materials.

Patented safety

Our patented Winter Safety Indicator (WSI) is embedded in the tread to further improve safety. It displays the remaining tread in millimeters together with a snowflake symbol. The snowflake remains visible until four millimeters of tread remain. Once the snowflake has worn out, purchasing new winter tires is recommended to help ensure driving stays safe.
