the nokian hakkas are very hard. I run the first generation even today. (the version one run is extinct). I can see the honda doing good with them. Ponder AWD diff locked on an old sube with the same tread....the tires are so confident, in the winter, people think I am going to smash into them at the natural pace I continue to drive.

the 118 mpg is phenomonal. a 500 pound car helps.
