I've purchased all the tires and most of the wheels for my vehicles through Discount Tire and swear by them! When I got my Subaru I started searching for good tires and found the WRG2 SUV which received rave reviews from other online forums. Wanting to try a set of these, I purchased through Tire Factory (authorized retailer near me) and absolutely love the tires! Unfortunately their service leaves a lot to be desired. It took over two hours for them to dismount my stock tires and install the WR's.. and that was with an appointment. I went back today for a tire rotation and they said it would be approx 40 mins til they could get to me. They had one car in the bay.. with two guys working on it. So I left to drop the dog off at home and when I returned, the guy working the counter was in the office talking on the phone with his "honey" about a trip to Maui. Meanwhile, the guy who worked on my car last time waved hello to me through the window but never came to see if I needed any help. I waited almost 10 mins without anyone helping me. I was beyond irritated so I left and went down the street to Discount Tire who rotated my tires in record time, even with a lobby full of customers on a saturday. So in short (too late for that), I'm not going back to Tire Factory, I'd rather buy another set of Nokians online and have Discount Tire install them for me, even if it ends up costing a little more in the long run. Thanks guys!

I see that you have started selling Nokians. This makes me happy. However, I do not see the tire I am looking for, the WR G2. This makes me sad.

Any idea if/when this tire will be offered? I'd prefer to do all my business with DTD rather than just having them mounted and balanced there.

Yes, but IMHO tires are not the smartest place to be stingy. They are your car's only contact with terra firma.

The models listed on our site will be the only models we carry this year.

Do you offer discount for forum members? If so what would be the price for Nokian Hakkapeliitta 5 225/55R-17

We do not offer forum member discounts at this time. Unlike some of our competitors, we do not inflate our prices just to offer a discount to a select group. Instead, we guarantee the lowest delivered price on all the products we carry for everyone. If you can find a competitor with a cheaper delivered price let us know and we'll beat it. As you may know, shipping and sales tax is FREE for CT. residents.

Is the Hakka 5 supposed to be the "better" snow tire between the 5 and the R?

I really want to get a set for my wifes car this winter.

I wouldn't say one model is better than the other. It all depends on your driving conditions. The Hakkapeliitta 5 is a little more aggressive in design when compared to the R model and is also studdable. If your driving conditions call for studds then this is certainly the model for you. Even not studded though, this model will excel in deeper snow conditions do to them ore aggressive tread design. If you are mainly driving on cleared roads, the Hallapeliitta R may be the better option for you. This model does very well in light snow conditions and excels on ice and wet conditions. Compared to the Hakka 5, the R will have a little better ride quality on cleared roads because the tread pattern is not quiet as aggressive.
