I drive 40 miles per work day . In western NY the weather can change dramatically from place to place . This set of tires has performed well in snow and slippery conditions . They run quiet and smooth with a good grip no matter what the road conditions. I am very satisfied with the purchase.
I'm no expert on tires and this is my first set of winter tires. Haven't seen snow or slush yet but on dry, cold pavement they are beyond my expectations. Pretty much like touring tires with very little extra zippy noise but decent handling and good comfort. Water evacuation seems really good over small puddles. The only area where it lacks so far is at hard breaking but that is expected from the softer compound.
Based on 225/45R17 on Jag X-type.
Just bought these for an older Honda Accord that I am using for winter transportation. This car is probably not worth what I paid for the Michelin winter tires, but boy do they give it ice and snow traction! Well worth the cost! We just got a bad ice storm right after I installed them, and I felt confident everywhere I drove them. In my opinion, they are better than the Bridgestone Blizzak tire. I sell Michelin and BFGoodrich tires, as well as all the other major brands and these are by far the best!
These are a must if you live in Michigan. They completely transformed my Honda Civic from a roller skate to velcro-like grip on winter roads. It's almost like having all-wheel drive. I bought a set for my new Impala too and they perform great. No more white knuckle driving even in bad conditions. Make the investment and switch out those all-season tires. Well worth the cost.
Bought 4 xice 3 snow tires last winter season. These snow tires are awesome. I put it on my new passsat tdi with separate wheels for winter. They gripped snow very well and never had any problem in driving through snow storm. I drove my car confidentially on highways and city drive. I would strongly recommend these tires. They are little pricy but worth to have during tough Michigan weather.
This is a great tire. The first time I was out in snow and ice I was very impressed with the go traction and stopping ability of these tires.
