Nokian makes excellent winter tires and they claim most are LLR. My experience is they are. I noticed no improvement in mileage when I changed from Nokian WR's (all weather LLR tire) to my Bridgstone Ecopia's ( well rated LLR tire). My Hakkapellita R's are better than than the Michelin's before them in snow and ice. They give a little worse mileage, but that is mostly because they are oversize and much heavier IMO.

That said, don't even think about putting winter tires on in a hot climate. there is no benefit at all and they won't last. Find a well rated all season or summer tire.

Almost all my driving is done 1-5 miles at a time.
Best short trip: 2.4 l/100 km, 3.9 km
