    [shocked]

    Great deal, too bad I don't need any right now, I got new snows for the Mazda 11/16, only have 12K miles on them after two Winters. I loved the Hakkas I had on my BMW in the late 80's, they were really hard to find back then too. I used them ice racing on Newfound Lake and won 17 trophies over eight Winters.
    If anyone is in the market for new snows, these are highly recommended.

    Hakkapeliita.

    Nokian says it means “Charge!” But it more likely means “Hack them to death!”

    You know what they say:

    Ten thousand Swedes
    Ran through the weeds
    Chased by one Norwegian

    R3 is their latest car/SUV friction Tire.

    It looks like the Nokian RSI, which preceded the R3, R2 and R. They were a new design in 2005.

    Nordman's are good too. Meant for deep snow, if I recall correctly.
