I've read a lot about these two tires on the forums but there is no post comparing both directly, though they seem very similar.
I'd like the opinion of people who have ridden both and how they compare. The Hakka W106 looked like it would not handle Québec's winters (although if you have any info against this statement please tell me so!) so I am now in a dilemma as to which to order. I'll be buying two pairs of them so I'd rather not do a 200$+ mistake.
Ice wise: The Schwalbe has only 100 spikes while the Nokian has 160.
Snow wise: The Schwalbe looks to have more aggressive threading while the Nokian seems to be weaker on that side.
Which is better for icy ruts? Would the Hakka 106 do just as well?
We don't get that many icy ruts around here cause the city plows pretty well most of the time, but I'd rather not get caught in a snowstorm with tires that ain't up to the job.
I'm a bit confused.
