Hakkapellita 5s on my winter wheels. Best winter tire I've ever used on the truck, better I've traction compared to the blizzaks I had before.

Haven't used them on my Ram, but I have used a set on my old Acura Legend and a set of M/Ts on my Hummer.

Loved them both.

Premium brand as far as I'm concerned.

Any idea where to buy them in Calgary? Is the Hakkapellita 5s a discontinued model?

Kal Tire is the only Nokian distributor I'm aware of. If there is another one please let us know cause I hate Kal Tire.

Why do you hate them? Are they not independently owned? Is it all of them or a select few?

I run them on our work trucks and I have to say that I'm not impressed... especially for how freakin expensive they are. I decided to put them on after reading amazing reviews on them (and it wasn't my money I was spending) and in the first season I threw about a quarter of the studs out. Ive also gotten stuck TWICE in about 6-7" of snow driving out to one of our radar sites where I had to dig myself out.

I can say from my personal experience I am very impressed with the studded Firestone Winterforce tires that I have on my personal vehicle, which I purchased after my experience with the hakkapiliats. They are way cheaper and I've never had a single issue with them. They have wider spacing and seem to do much better in the sloppy stuff... but I will give the Nokians the nod when on pure Ice.

Just do yourself a favor and check out the Firestones before pulling the trigger on the Nokians.
