No doubt that Nokian is by far having the best winter tire line in the world. For the ones
who think they can't match big manufacturer's R&D money invested in winter tire technologies
you are completly wrong, in fact, Nokian is the one who invested more money in R&D and
testing of winter tires in the world for many many years. Taking into accounts that winter
tire market is about 5% of the total world numbers of tire sold, those big manufacturers
do not put that big effort in R&D that you tough it is. Nokian's winter tire productions
account for more than 50% of their annual volume, they simply cannot afford to be number
2. It shows, Nokian won most of the tire tests in the Scandinavian magazines last winter,
especially with their new studless Hakka Q and studded Hakka 1. Everybody else far behind
them.
