Luxury Performance Touring All-Season Tire. The CrossClimate2 has a distinct V-formation tread pattern, which works together with the tire’s proprietary rubber compound. Key features of the tire include wet performance, even when worn, a longer-lasting tread compound for an additional year of use and enhanced dry grip. The tire also features a three-peak mountain snowflake rating and is designed with Michelin’s PIANO Noise Reduction Tuning, which creates angles with tread blocks to cancel out “harmonic” road noise and create ideal amplitude for the contact patch for a quieter ride.
