Re: snows...

Hakkapeliitta 10's are designed for studded use, and have been superceded
by the new Nokian 1 last winter here in Finland.  The NRW and NRW-H are
optimized for non-studded use.  ie. I'd go for the NRW or NRW-H depending
on your usage/size.  The H is speed rated, and is better on dry/wet asphalt
and hence not quite as good on snow/ice.  It has rounded edges much like a
summer tire, turn-in on snow not as good as NRW, but cornering in dry/wet
is naturally better.  If you like the 10 for grip, you will love the 1 for
grip and the lack of noise...

BTW, the Nokian 1 should be used with studs compatible with the new Eco
Stud System, 10mm studs, 8mm diameter.
