The best snow tires for a Honda Odyssey are the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 snow tires.
Now, since you’re heading to a hockey tournament in Canada, you’ll want the best snow tires that can fit your Odyssey, and the Nokian R3s are just the ticket. To ease any doubt, Nokian is a Finnish company, and the Finns are a notoriously hardy bunch of wintrous souls—no doubt their tires will ensure your kids make it to Canada safely in order to thrash their puck-loving Canuck opponents.
The Nokian R3s have a number of features that help them excel in winter driving conditions:
- The R3’s Biobased Cryo Crystal 3 particles embedded in the tire help give your Odyssey the best traction possible on wintery roads
- Nokian’s patented Snow Claws are placed between the tires’ blocks and shoulders which act like biting edges, ensuring better acceleration and more robust braking in even the worst conditions
- The R3’s proven V-shape grooves ensure firm bite on snow while not sacrificing comfort or stability
One thing to know—the braking distances with the Nokian R3 snow tires is just average compared with other premium snow tires, but still very much within the safe range.
