Description of Nokian Tires Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV 255/50 R19 107R winter
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV Scandinavian-type studless winter tire is designed specifically for SUVs. Grip on slippery surfaces is improved by the Cryo Crystal 3 concept, a central stiff rib gives stability at high speeds, and pump sipes reduce the risk of aquaplaning.
Heavy-duty aramid fibers added to the sidewall rubber compound provide exceptional wear and tear resistance in external impacts and obstacles.
Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV tires provide stability, comfort and increased reliability in operation.
The winter tire Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV, like the previous model, is designed for SUV class vehicles. The operational properties are selected taking into account the road and climatic conditions of the countries of Northern Europe and Russia. They are distinguished by reliable traction properties that remain at extremely low temperatures, increased cross-country ability in snow, fuel efficiency and reliability.
Reinforced sidewallsOne of the features of the tire is the reinforced sidewall construction. Their structure contains aramid fibers. They increase the rigidity and mechanical strength of the sidewalls. In addition, this solution further enhances directional stability during maneuvering and high-speed traffic.
Increased rib in the center The development of the tire was carried out in parallel with the model of the same name for passenger cars. One of the key differences from it is the increased size of the longitudinal rib located in the center of the tread. This decision is dictated by the increased weight and higher center of gravity of SUVs. The enlarged center rib has better resistance to deformation. This increases the stability of the coupling properties, and also facilitates the process of driving a car due to faster and more accurate reactions to the driver''s actions.
Several types of sipesWith no studs, the tire demonstrates confident behavior on icy surfaces. This is largely due to the use of several types of lamellae.
Slots are located in the shoulder zones, which are blocked in the open position in such a way that the mobility of the entire block as a whole is limited. As a result, in addition to the formation of numerous transverse edges, such sipes increase the stability of grip properties, especially during longitudinal accelerations on icy and wet surfaces.
In the central part there are lamellas with a slightly different functionality. These slots contain voids that trap and retain moisture from the road surface. As a result, the contact patch dries up, which improves grip on wet and icy surfaces.
Improved snow flotation The tire''s tread pattern contains numerous triangular grooves. Most of the part is located longitudinally next to and in the shoulder areas. These elements, when in contact with a snow-covered surface due to their shape and zigzag...
The second Velcro in my life and very pleased despite the fact that a very wide 285/40 / R20 behaves well both in minus and in slush, does not pop up at speeds up to 130 km. H for sure, just as confident start and braking, So far such impressions . Machine-Audi Q7.
1) Fairly soft
2) Acoustically comfortable over the entire speed range up to 190 km. H.
3) Very tenacious for Velcro.
4)Cleans well when driving.
5) not afraid of ice, but you need to go with your head of course.
With its positives being:
Calm, unbroken, and harmoniously proportioned. A particularly strong "hold" that contributes to friction.
Some disadvantages include the fact that two tires appeared in the twentieth year and two others appeared in the eighteenth year; nevertheless, this is already a question for the tire service at the location where I bought it.
The anti-lock braking system (ABS) is now activated during severe braking.
On Hakkapellit 9, my Land Rover Discovery only stopped using its…
Recommend tires for purchase. In my opinion, the manufacturer managed to find the optimal balance of friction rubber characteristics for the northern winter. Mazda CX-5 2nd generation car, four-wheel drive.
Changed shoes to R3 SUV 225/55R19 two weeks ago. One week operation on clean asphalt at -3/-10. Another week with heavy precipitation in the form of rain and snow, then the temperature drops to -18. There were no problems during operation: on clean asphalt on summer it is tenacious and soft, on an icy hill from the garage there is no slippage, on city porridge in snow everything is fine (tires are cleaned well), in the cold there were no problems either. To say that the rubber is noisy - the tongue will not turn, but it feels like Pirelli ice zero friction 225 / 45R19 (I drove them for 3 winters) is a little quieter on the pavement. However, Pirelli had problems on porridge and in ice.
No deficiencies noted so far. In the process of further operation I will try to supplement the review.
I traveled for 2 seasons on all-wheel drive Crete (215/60 R17) quite a bit - 8000 km, the number 8 on the indicators was not erased.
As for me, very quiet, quieter than regular summer Neksen. Problems with braking and starting on any type of surface is not experienced, except for ice)).
But ice is also different. It snows and rains for half the night and the whole car is covered with a crust of ice, there is just a skating rink and bare ice in the yard, there are no problems with starting, but…
I bought tires in 2022 for a new car. Already skated 2.5 seasons on them. Total mileage 90 thousand km on the odometer.
Before that, I had already ridden on R2 friction tires (good, but the set was only enough to wear out quickly for 2 seasons). On a new car, without a doubt, I decided to take the new 2022 Hakkapelita R3. Tires are great. There is less noise than from summer Yokohama. They hold perfectly on all surfaces: dry and wet asphalt, snow, slush, snowdrifts, ice (after winter rain)…
Excellent road holding. Doesn't make noise. Comfortable. Wear resistant. Good to steer. Economical. Goes great on snowdrifts. Holds well on ice.
Nokian R3 in size 245/50r19 not RUN FLAT, Velcro.
I thought for a long time what to take in this size because the choice is not very large.
And basically everything with RUN FLAT technology.
Our winter is quite severe, there is enough snow and frost, so I never use RUN FLAT in winter, I ride with this technology only in summer.
So that's actually what I wanted to say))
After 2-3 days of thinking and searching for a review of such a tire (which I never found), I decided to try it anyway.
Quiet enough, worthy of holding the road and a short braking distance.
Ran my first Hakki kit for 10,000 km from November 2022 to April 2022. I used to have cars with all-wheel drive (SUVs, full cut automatically or up to 40 km, etc., etc.). I always chose the Japanese Bridgestone Blizzack Velcro, which had no complaints. Now a car with rear-wheel drive and hard-wired front (part-time). All my friends said that only spikes, especially rear-wheel drive, but looking at our winters and eternally open asphalt in Hong Kong Region and Hong Kong Region, I decided to…
Excellent handling on slush, on wet and dry pavement in the temperature range from -14 to +14 (Hong Kong and the region). Particularly liked handling on frozen dry pavement. On snow with infusion rides confidently. On the ice, I'm already turning on my brains. With a steady plus, I didn’t feel that softness that happened from other Velcro. The rubber is not noisy, the ride is soft, although the suspension is soft.
Until I discovered them. According to reviews, I expected very fast wear, but so far I have not noticed it.
When changing rubber, we managed to look at several different representatives and find out that this rubber, compared to others, initially had a rather low tread. This will probably lead to a short service life in the future, we'll see.
I went to Nokian for a very long time, even on a front-wheel drive car there was a studded second Hakka. And this is the only time I got into an accident through my own fault. On level ground. After I went to different Velcro from Bridgestone. And this year I wanted to take Bridges for a new car, but I could not buy them. But Hakki heaps. Poizuchav evening reviews decided to take. Well, there really were no options. I will say this, it rides perfectly on asphalt of any condition at temperatures
Holds the road well, accelerates well. Having run in, it became even quieter, the pulsating howl almost disappeared. On any asphalt rides just fine, like summer.
Behavior on slippery surfaces is just terrible. The car pulls out of the turn, the brakes on ice and snow-covered asphalt are simply non-existent. Everyone was waiting for the end of the season, but after today the car dropped from 75 km / h to 50 km / h with the brake pedal fully depressed for 300 meters, I was convinced that it was necessary to sell rubber. After such rubber, you begin to want spikes. The first winter in 12 years when I regret the lack of spikes. Although how would they help on asphalt powdered with snow? In general, tires are just terrible in difficult weather conditions. Moreover, very strange behavior, I went in the snow at -5 and everything seemed to be fine. Today is about 0, no brakes. In the turn, he began to add gas and the all-wheel drive Tiguan slid outward with all 4 wheels. All in all, a complete nightmare.
Normally balanced, no more than 60 gr. per wheel with size 255/60 R18.
Compare with Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 SUV tires. On icy pavement it keeps no worse, it’s not noisier in motion, I haven’t tried it in snow and other things yet.
So far so good, let's see what happens next.
Very mediocre tires, I drive in size 225/60 R17 on an all-wheel drive Tiguan 2022. At the beginning of operation on snow and on dry pavement, I did not notice any significant shortcomings, I was even pleased, but when faced with a real winter (with ice, ice, etc.), I realized that the tires were just emergency.
I drive calmly, but even in this mode, my nerves are in tension, the roll is huge, there is no grip on ice, constant slippage. Slow down a bit and the ABS kicks in. It is constantly…
I bought a set of wheels, fell for the design of the discs and the originality of the set. Can't help but want to change tires every day - the worst winter tires ever. Where a car in the summer confidently and without a screech enters a turn of 70 km / h, this Finnish squalor squeaks and floats already at 40 km / h. The track does not keep the word at all - even on a good toll road 150 km / h is the comfort limit. I thought, well, at least in the winter there will be nothing. It didn’t grow…
Terrible rubber - does not hold turns on dry and wet pavement, keeps a monstrous straight line even on a good track at speed, slows down badly in the same modes. On ice, it is no better than European winter tires for euro winters.
Of all the choices that are within a radius of 20, these can be taken completely, especially since the model is new and will be in the assortment of stores for a long time
Has some pros:
The R20 has good handling, good road holding, braking, for its type of tires. Normal speed index. In general, good tires. Buying is not a problem.
Noise! on R 20. the higher the speed, the higher the rumble, it starts already from 60 km / h. But it's still quieter than any studded tires.
I purchased it on a 2022 VW Tiguan (4x4). Operating experience - 1 season. The declared characteristics generally correspond to the product description, which can be "gleaned" from the manufacturer's website and various tests. The car drives confidently in a straight line. Quick and confident start from any surface. City - highway - everything is clear and predictable. Sufficiently economical in terms of fuel consumption ("winter" - an average of 11.5 liters to 13.0 liters, depending
Departure for a whole year on 235.652022. Nokian R2 suv and this season decided to put r3 suv in the same size. What can I say in comparison. The softness is the same. R3 makes a little more noise (r2 is generally very quiet). The weight of the tire is the same - 14.2 kg, which means that the strength is the same. The tread and sidewall are soft to the touch here and there. I didn't notice any difference in driving. I am sure that in the mode of a normal calm trip it will be difficult to catch…
1. Soft. Swallows joints, uneven roads.
2. Very light (competitors are heavier).
3. All snow disciplines for 5-ku.
4. Asphalt wet and dry - everything is good and predictable. I drove the r2 suv for a whole year (including summer), I didn’t notice any inconvenience in terms of wear or aquaplaning, including plus 30. On. R3 suv all the same.
2. It makes a little noise (such a small rumble), but it does not bother.
3. Average wear.
Lexus RX 300202222 car. Always went to them only on spikes and what a thrill to finally ride in winter in silence and comfort without annoying clatter on the pavement. For some reason, winter tires are always tested only on snow and ice. Forgetting that in big cities, for example in my Hong Kong, 99% of the time we drive them, brake or accelerate in winter on dry or wet pavement. I was convinced that with such a coating, the friction Hakka R3 will give odds to any studded ones. And it's not…
Handling, noise and comfort almost like summer tires. On ice, they are not much inferior to studded ones.
The crack is good. I liked it. All-wheel drive, ride quietly, behaves well. There are no slips. Asphalt, snow porridge, rolled expensively - excellent!
I can't say anything bad.
What I immediately felt was very soft.
Let's see how wear resistance.
