contact MarkKonig Zero-in wheels arrived Today. Close exam revealed that stock Civic lug nuts won't fit and I have to buy a slimmer log nuts set.

contact Your NameInstalled the winter set before upcoming show and drove on the clean asphalt road.
Hakkapeliitta 8 is nothing like its predecessors. It is as quiet as my Summer Yokohamas. I did not believe it. It felt like I was driving on my Summer tires and barely a studs noise.
Its a winner!

contact MarkDrive test on snow:
Braking/acceleration - absolutely stunning!
Grip on snow and ice 100%
Noise level: Very quiet. Quietest studded winter tires I have ever had.
Turns: very predictable but require attention and proper speed. Car stabilization system helps a lot.
I have chosen one size down in width (195 compared to original 205) and my Hakka 5 were 185. I guess narrower tires made a difference in turn performance.
Overall tires performed great!
