These tires are overshadowed by the well known blizzkas, but they are fantastic.

For those unfamiliar with Nokians, some reviews from forum members -

1. Nokain Hakka R's
2. Blizzak WS-60
3. Blizzak LM-60
4. Pirelli Sottozero
5. Blizzak LM-25 (discontinued)
6. Michelin X-Ice
7. Dunlop Wintersport 3D (terrible)

Wow totally forgot about Nokian! EXCELLENT tires - they are definitely amongst the top (if not the top...). Had them on an '04 750Li and 01' Lexus GS430. After that for whatever reason couldn't find them and switched over to Dunlop Snow Sport & Pirelli Sottozero. They were definitely as good if not better...
