    Just bought Nokian Hakka R2's!!

    Looks like they took the R2s off the website in 195/65/15... hopefully they'll be back soon.

    Winter tire choices - tread pattern

    Well in Tire Rack's most recent test, the EWC outperformed the Xi3 ever so slightly. Canadian Tire and the Russian testing company came to the same conclusion.

    Winter tire choices - tread pattern

    How does the treadlife of the Continental EWC compare to say, Xi3 and R2s?

    Nokian Hakka R2 winter tires

    So since it seems like the R2s are usually too expensive, what's the consensus on the #2 option? Michelin Xi3, Continental Extreme Winter Contact, or General Altimax Arctic?

    ditched X-ice Xi2's for Altimax Arctics

    It sucks that nobody has objectively compared the two tires since they are in different performance categories

    ditched X-ice Xi2's for Altimax Arctics

    ditched X-ice Xi2's for Altimax Arctics

    I wonder how the newer Xi3s compare to the Artics... I'm having a hard time deciding between the two. The studdable feature of the Artics are no benefit to me as studs aren't legal in the Chicago area.

    Nokian Hakka R2 winter tires

    What about the General Altimax Arctic? Those are supposed to be phenomenal tires, I wonder how they stack up to the R2 and Xi3.
