Hi Steven,

Thank you for contacting Nokian Tyres.

Yes, the Hakkapeliitta 44" will be available in the US. At this point, it will only be manufactured in one size, LT 475/70 R 17. There is no confirmed date when it will be available for consumer purchase, but I would think by late summer it will be ready to order.
You can learn more about it on our global site, click the link below.
Knowhow from the Arctic: Robust Nokian Hakkapeliitta 44 winter tyre is the newest top-of-the-line product resulting from the cooperation between Nokian Tyres and Arctic Trucks / Nokian Tyres

On January 23, 2027, the Facebook page for Arctic Extreme in Iceland, posted a pic and a comment that they were enjoying their new 44" Nokian tyres.

I am wondering if these tires are available in USA ?

Biggest driver in cost. Will be freight ( from Finland ?).

Link says currently available exclusively through AT.

I replied and asked what distribution system in the U.S. ? Will be cool if Nokian has a warehousing system we can order through our local dealer

A little more tire info

Hi Steven,

No need to apologize. The 44 will be distributed through Nokian Tyres. Our retail locations wouldn't keep these tires in stock, so it would be ordered upon request.

Best,
Jill

I'm sorry one more question. Read the press release, and currently only available through Arctic Trucks

I do not believe Arctic Trucks has a distribution system in the U.S.

Do you know how Nokian plans to distribute in the U.S. ? Local Nokian dealerships ?

I've been waiting on these too. I would like to know a price so I can start saving. The plan is to build the 80 to accept the 44's and run 40's as I already do; but run the 44's when I go to the dunes and snow.
