I know many people have good experience with Nokian's snow tire, I also have a set of Hakka 1's on 96 Maxima & happy with it. Now I need another set of snow tires for Subaru Impreza, I'm considering Hakka 1 again or NRW.
Can anyone give me some comparison between the two tires? I can not stud my Hakka 1 due to regulation in Ontario. All inputs are welcome! Thanks!

Nrw is a high performance winter tire ( most
of the sizes are h-rated-210 km/h). If you
like driving very fast on highway that's
the tire you need. If the pure winter proper-
ties of the tire is most important caracteris
tics for you the best choice without studs
is Hakka Q's. Top class grip on snow, slush,
ice and a very good wear resistant and stable
handling. Very good choice for AWD car to be
used in Ontario without studs.

Thanks Marc,
Here is what I heard from my local Nokian's tire store about 1's & Q's.
They found Hakka 1's without studs is better on snow than Q's(to my surpeise); Q's is better on ice(maybe due to no studs on 1's). Q's is a bit softer than 1's -> 1's has more performance side over Q's and last longer.
Yes I like to drive a bit fast even in snow that's why I would consider NRW & would like to know how does it compare to 1's without stud for snow/ice performance. Yes I agree Q's is pure winter proper-ties, but I would mainly consider T/H rated tires. Thanks~

Hi got the 1's last year for my old Civic (155 wide instead of 175) and it proved to be excellent snow tire with v.good wet snow characteristics. I was conteplating before about the Q's but people told me Q's are softer, Bridgestone like tires 'for ice' and wear much faster. Also, in my opinion, there are no ice-prof tires so I just drove more careful during the frezzing rain days. Even then 1's performed way better than all-seasons. They are overall better tires than my sisters 'cheap' ice Bridgestones.
