I have a set of 4 Nokian Hakkapeliita snow tires for my 99 Camry LE 4
cyl auto. While I have also heard positive comments and nothing
negative about Blizzaks, I must say that I have been quite pleased with
the Nokian tires and would gladly purchase another set when these are
worn out. So you may want to definitely check them out at your friendly
local tire retailer or online tire distributor :-)
We actually have 2 Camry's (95 LE and 99 LE, both 4 cyl auto) and the 99
replaced a 90 DX.....I've never had any particular complaints with any
of them in the wintertime, with or without snow tires....and that
includes some December trips back to the Chicago area, central Ohio, and
By way of geographical reference, we live in Central NJ which is
probably similar to Washington DC area in terms of winter weather.
Finally, here is a webpage URL
which looks interesting and which you may find useful .....
Hope this helps !
