My first premium winter tire and what a difference! The Xi3 excels in ice and freezing rain. Pretty good on snow and slush. But most important, it doesn't behave unpredictably in the dry, which is not the case for a lot of cheaper winter tires. Road noise is minimal all the way up to 120 km/h or so. Even with hard cornering and enjoying the fresh snow once in a while on back roads, tire wear was minimal after my first season on these.

These tires are horrible compared to hankooks. I changed from hankook w409 to these expecting it would be better. To my surprises it was not. My hankooks perform so much better..

I bought a set of these in November 2013, previously running Vredestain Wintrac Xtremes. Driving home on dry pavement after installation, I noticed that on the freeway, had to continually play with the steering wheel to keep the car on track. I've never spent so much time steering! I actually stopped and inspected everything to make sure they weren't coming off. This eventually tapered off after a few weeks of driving. I eventually got to use them in our typical snow season (7400' in New Mexico), and they did very respectably in snow and slush. (I lived in Jackson Hole for ten years, and I've driven in hard winter conditions for decades. For thirty years I've driven year round on hydrophilic winter tires, due to the frequency of intermountain thunderstorms, which can put down a lot of water in a short period of time). But the real kicker came last fall (2014) when the Michelins became increasingly hard and noisy. This past week they seriously hydroplaned on me, so, as far as I'm concerned they're history—after less than 20K miles. I'll be going back to Vredesteins—much sooner than anticipated. Hard to imagine these Michelins are being touted at 60,000km tires.

I've tried the new Yokohama IG51v on my '15 Sorento SUV and they did not perform as well as the Xi3 on my rear wheel drive car in the same parking lot. The SUV actually got stuck multiple times. I also have NordFrost 5 on my '02 Corolla, older Yokohama snow on my '96 Integra, and Nexen on my '97 Maxima. General Altimax on my '12 Rogue (RIP). The Xi3 have been the best so far in ALL conditions. Dry handling was very surprising to me as you can see I have several other tires. I had better traction going uphill than my SUV on the same hills too. I used to drive 30,000 km a year 6+ years so I have tons of experience on snow tires alone.

WOW! When I first installed these tires.... I couldn't wait for the snow. Mean while, it was good on pavement. Low noise, nice ride but soft (it's snow tires - mean't to go below 0*C). But when I saw the first snow fall!!! Great fun to drive in the snow, good grip even if I drive a front wheel drive car, superb handling and good stop distance. I'm impressed and swear by MICHELIN has I also have a pair for summer tires. Love them! I will by the same types for my other car and futur ones. I'm a experience driver - weekend warrior.
