Can One Tire Really Work In Every Climate? Michelin CrossClimate2 Is Made For Any Weather
3-Peak Mountain Snowflake Tire That You Can Use Year Round - Sponsored By Michelin
Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - goo.gl/VZstk7
How is it possible for a tire to perform well in all four seasons? How does something that has the 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake, which is a certification of winter performance, also have wear characteristics that hold up to hot summer temperatures, all while stacking up against today’s best all-season tires?
First off, I think there’s some important backstory. I was looking for a tire for my Crosstrek that I could genuinely leave on four all four seasons. Why? Because I’m lazy. In my research, the best tire I could find was the Michelin CrossClimate+, an all-season tire certified for winter conditions. So, that’s what I bought. Well, as it turns out, Michelin had already been working on another version of the this tire, the CrossClimate 2, and they asked me if I’d be interested in trying it out early.
So overall - what’s the strategy? On one hand you can have a winter tire. It’s great in deep snow & ice compared to other tires, but not as great at dry or wet braking in higher temperatures, nor great for dry handling. On the other hand you can have a summer tire - excellent performance in dry and usually wet as well, great handling when the temperatures are nice, but you definitely don’t want to drive on these in snowy or icy conditions, or even really cold temperatures depending on the tire.
Very big picture, what we have here is a tire that uses a compound that’s quite similar to a winter compound, but it uses a tread pattern that’s more similar to a summer tread pattern, in that it has very few sipes and cuts, which puts the tire in a very unique position. The ability to be a certified 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake Tire, and thanks to the tread pattern, significantly less wear than a traditional winter tire when it’s driven on in summer months.

    My wife and I bought this tire a few months ago but the application is a little different. It was to replace the OEM tires on her 2017 Chevy Bolt EV. This is not a tire for electric cars (ultra low rolling resistance). So why did we choose it? The Michelin Energy Saver A/S self-seal came with the car and for its primary purpose of electric range, it did its job very well. But it's ability to keep traction was only fair on dry surfaces and bordering on lousy in the wet. As the tire aged, wet traction got worse and worse until right when we were due to get them replaced at about 50,000 miles, I hydroplaned on a major road near my house for about 4-5 seconds, nearly drifting into oncoming traffic. I was lucky to keep the car in the two lanes I had. Considering how we used the car in terms of range for most trips, we decided that we were willing to give up some range for better dry and especially wet performance. Once we swapped out for the Cross Climate 2's, we noticed immediately that in the dry, we instantly had better traction, especially from a standing stop. The Michelin Energy Savers sometimes would spin the front wheels if you planted the accelerator too hard on some surfaces. This doesn't happen with the CC2s. And best of all, this tire is a lot better in the wet than the Energy Savers ever were. No longer do we feel that we might lose control in very wet conditions. And since these tires are not run flats, the overall ride quality dramatically improved. The downside is the range lost....about 15% (which we expected). Still, we think for our purposes that it was worth it. Maybe a version of this tire with the Cross Climate Plus tread formula could be sold for electric cars in cold weather markets.

    The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S series has served me well over the years. Primacy MXM series also works well but I am In North Texas and even with my road trips to snow states in the winter still work great. Michelin, Bridgestone and Pirellis are generally my go to tire!

    That tire in the picture is an All Weather tire. Not a typical no season tire. That tires closest competition is probably Nokians WRG4. Yeah another excellent All Weather Tire. Dunno about better because I have never seen them compared head to head. The WRG4 is actually affordable though where the Michelin All weather tire pictured is not. I know because I looked.

    Many allseasontyres at least mimic the Goodyear 4 seasons Vector. From 2010 or so. The last one to do so is the Vredestein Quatrac which is their first symmetrical allseason and it now is the best (with the Goodyears 4S Vector Gen3).

    1) Reminds me a lot of Goodyear's early Aquatred innovations (1980's?) 2) The 3-peak Euro tire certification is *huge*, and I can't believe that even in the northern US, such a rating is not the norm. Great compromise between winter and summer or even all-season tires! 3) I think I may have found my new tires!

    I just bought Michelin Crossclimate + tires a month ago because i wasn’t willing to change tires twice a year between summer and winter tires and pay for the extremely overpriced service of swapping tires. I pay 50€ to change tires once so 100€ a year, thats just for service and without actually buying summer and winter tires for 350 € each. Summer + winter tires + service cost me 1200€ during 5 years, while the Michelins cost me 380€ to buy + 100€ service to put them on my rims. Makes it a total of 480 € which is less then i pay for the service to swap tires in 5 years. Anyone who is NOT driving through actual snow and freezing temperatures half of the year and drives through hot temperatures the other half, should just get all season tires. Its a no brainer.

    These look like a racing intermediate rain tires with snipes for snow. They may actually work in Winter and not disappear in Summer. I currently use Nordman Nokian Winter tires from October to March and Nordman 3 season for Summer on my Subaru Outback. I have four extra wheels changing tires is done at my tire shop. The Subie does well on this combination Summer and Winter. I have Michilne Run flat performance tires on my C-6 Vette. They are a bit noisy but provide good wet and dry traction. I store the car during the Winter. No need for Winter tires. Besides driving on snow on the really wide tires and with the available power would be a bit tricky.

    If the tire is rolling forward then it pushes water from the center out. If it’s locked then it’s funneling water from the edges inward. ABS would help with that.

    Anyone has thoughts on this ? ... I have the Michelin CrossClimate on a small fwd Audi A3 and they are OK. But for a 4x4 Mitsubishi Evo X (245/40 r18), would the CrossClimate work better than Nokian all season ? I know noise is decent on the CrossClimate and specs also shows 1-2 lower dbi noise. Not sure how Nokian all season would be, I only had winter Nokian on this car.

    Great vid! You actually made me reconsider my tire buying strategy. Currently, I shop used tires in the spring when people clean out their garages. I pick up a set of winter tires (hopefully on rims that fit) and wear out my existing winter tires over the summer. I drive a two hour commute with six months of snow. Summer traction is a non issue as I just crawl along at the speed limit while people honk, flash their lights and tailgate. (I do the best that I can let people pass when when it’s safe for them to do so). In October, I put my “new to me” snow tires on and start the process over. I might actually try these next year because I too “am lazy”.

    I can't speak specifically for the CrossClimate2, but after 8,000 miles, an alignment, a rotation, a screw repair, and 14 months on the CrossClimate+ I think I have a pretty good handle on them. I have to vouch for Jason Fenske's review here pretty broadly, if with a few caveats regarding severe cold or ice. Note -- especially readers from Europe -- that I'm not familiar with a pure dedicated summer tire outside of a few goes at driving a former roommate's mid 1980s Porsche with no power steering; the points of comparison are American non-winter-rated "all-season" (or three-season as they should more accurately be called), dedicated winter tires, and the winter-rated all-season Nokian WRG3, a close relative of the Euro-spec performance winter WRA3. The CrossClimates are driving as smoothly and centering as well as the day I bought them. Use is 195/65/15 on a Chevy Sonic (Aveo) sedan with the Opel LUV/LUJ 1.4 turbo engine. 1. Snow performance is very good. Better IMHO than a Nokian WRG3 in near-freezing conditions with soft snow or slush (e.g. 25-35F, -4 to +2C), though the WRG3 has an advantage in hard, cold packed snow conditions (let's say 14F/-10C or colder). Ice performance is probably the CrossClimate+'s weakest attribute, though still much better than an "all-season". Not as secure as the WRG3 or a Blizzak though; in, say, -5F (-20C) glare ice type of driving, there's a hint of twitchiness to the CrossClimate+ where the WRG3 feels firmly planted (and a regular North American "all-season" will have you finding God for lack of a better alternative). Another point of comparison in ice: winter driving on hilly, iced-over streets in, say low-20s or colder (-5C or colder), the WRG3 has a clear advantage. But these same streets right at freezing in heavy snow? The advantage goes to the CrossClimate. 2. Rain performance is impressive. The cornering is far more secure than the WRG3 and also more secure than any "all-season" I've tried (including among others Goodyear Eagle GA; Kelly Navigator; Yokohama Avid; Firestone's fuel economy model from the early 2000s; a couple other Goodyears; Hankook H428; Hankook H727; General Altimax and Altimax RT43). One acid test for me is metal expansion joints on a bridge on a curve to see whether the car slides sideways. Not a significant problem on these CrossClimate+ tires; it was especially obnoxious on the Firestones and the Yokohamas. 3. Dry performance, winter or summer, is very solid. Not remotely as easy to spin in dry and dusty heat as the WRG3. 4. Observations on the CrossClimate2 based on this review -- I think Michelin are trying to strike a balance here, a harder compound for improved summer performance offset by the extra siping to keep the winter performance from going to seed. I'd like to see Fenske talk a little more about that, whether, for example, they hold up compared to the CC+ in bitter-cold hard-packed snow, but am mindful that is a condition he'd likely have to travel to really immerse in. Note especially to Euro readers that Fenske is primarily driving in the coastal northwestern US, which has milder winters than the upper Midwest, northern New England or the Midwest or east of Canada--or, for that matter, Finland, most of Norway, or northern Sweden, and prodigious amounts of soft snow at higher elevations and rain down low, and in the mountains, at least those east of the major cities like Portland and Seattle, both elevation changes and weather conditions that make for big diurnal ranges in temperature which mean you could quite easily have to deal in winter with heavy snow and late spring conditions in the same 24 hour period. 5. Recommendation; if you often encounter icing and/or severe winter cold, you may still want to seasonally swap tires out with the Nokian WRG4 (if your winter is kind of on-and-off) or a dedicated snow tire (if your winter is more consistent and snowier). For the kind of extremely variable on-off conditions that prevail outside of summer in much of North America, the CrossClimate+ tires are often more practical -- and they're a legitimate summer tire too even in America's heat. Also, the more you road-trip (this is my situation, I walk to work but drive out of town quite a lot), the more these will show an advantage due to the wide variety of conditions; the more you stay close to home the more you gain from rotating seasonally. 6. Tires like this ought to replace the traditional North American "all-season". No tire prior to the CrossClimate+ earned an above-average rating from Consumer Reports for every single condition, and that's a really impressive achievement. But for bitter cold with packed snow and glare ice, that's where the dedicated winter tire or at least a more winter-oriented tire will win out. Let's see what I think in another year!

    I must say as a Northern European that these all year around tires are hot garbage. They are too soft for summer and get way too hard in the winter which makes them dangerous all year around. That tread pattern doesn't help if there is any ice on the road and makes the tire loud. I can just about use non studded tires as the winters aren't too wintery anymore but these all year tires aren't effective at anything except giving people false sense of safety.
