Nokian Mount and Ground W160 vs Hakk. W106
My wife ordered W106s for Christmas but the LBS got W160s instead. I found out when I opened my present and am now wondering if I should keep them. I wanted the W106 b/c the studs are in the center and seem like they would give better control on the ice; the W160 has studs that are further out to the sides. I will be using these for daily commuting. Has anyone used both the W106 and W160? If so, which did you prefer? I know that you can supposedly lower the psi on the W160 to get the studs to contact, but that would give a squishy, less efficient ride than fully inflated W106s. Any suggestions? How do the tires corner on dry pavement? If I mount mine and try them I can't take them back.
Thanks for any info.
