FITMENT GUARANTEE
All orders are verified for fitment guarantee.

A wide tread contact patch generates acceleration and braking power, as well as cornering traction, for outstanding winter manoeuvering. The special FleX-IceTM compound is formulated to maintain its flexibility under the most extreme cold weather conditions, including snow, slush, ice, wet and dry. MICHELIN® Latitude® X-Ice® Xi2TM tires are designed to help Crossovers and Sport Utility Vehicles hold the road in a variety of wintery conditions.

  • Cross Z-SipesTM Technology uses a special 3-D design that locks the sipes in place. Combined with micro-pumps, they provide improved stability in all winter conditions. And because the sipes and micro-pumps are full-depth, their grip lasts winter after winter.
  • MICHELIN® Comfort Control Technology™ helps deliver one of the most comfortable rides in the industry by using computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing to offer greatly reduced vibrations and road noise plus the longevity you expect from Michelin.

Ran these for four Newfoundland winters, putting roughly 70,000 km on them. The sidewalls are cracked at this point, and my dealer suggested replacing them. This is a bit surprising, since they are an expensive tire! Treadwear was just average, although they wore evenly. I did not find these to be all that great in wet weather (rain/slush) - they tended to hydroplane more easily than the Michelin LTX that were my summer tires. This was true even when new, with full tread depth. In snow they were fine, no complaints. Where these really shine is on dry cold pavement, where they are a very quiet and comfortable highway ride. I'm going to try another brand this time, I need better wet weather performance.
