I've been talking to Chang about the Nokian tires he used and he swears by the Nokian Hakka R (non-studded) and Hakka 5 (studded) for LRR. I don't have any LRR stats to use to compare them to other tires but I remember an LRR tire list being on this site about 6 months ago...thought I bookmarked it but can't find it now...anybody still have it? Being that the tires were winter tires not sure they would be on the list anyway.

I have quite some time before I have to replace my stock Goodyear Integrities (only 9k on them now) but I would consider running the Hakka R when it is time to replace them (or the Hakka 5 studded in the winter if I find my stock Integrities do not perform well this winter...costly though running two sets of tires during the year).

Obviously, Chang had a tremendous amount of mods on his car but I can't imagine the tires didn't contribute to the high mpg he got.
