A winter tire designed for maximum mobility and safety–not just when it’s new, but for seasons to come. The Michelin X-Ice Snow tire offers shorter ice and snow stopping distances thanks to the exceptional grip provided by having two types of full-depth 3D sipes. This results in an increased claw effect on snow and ice, and long-lasting biting edges. Also featuring Flex-Ice 2.0 compound and MICHELIN EverWinterGrip rubber inclusion technology for excellent ice braking, even after 3 winters. These inclusions will generate micro-roughness on the tire surface for enhanced traction on snow and ice, giving extra grip in harsh conditions, winter after winter. The MICHELIN X-Ice Snow tire offers better hydroplaning performance than its predecessors.The new aggressive winter tread design with increased void ratio and V-shaped tread pattern provides increased resistance to hydroplaning and enhanced snow, slush, and wet evacuation. The MICHELIN X-Ice Snow tire lasts up to one additional winter than the average of leading competitors. The new tread design, featuring interlocking 3D sipes, Flex-Ice 2.0 compound and an innovative Evergrip Technology, delivers long wear life by providing tread block rigidity and optimizing the tire's contact with the road surface during acceleration, braking and cornering.
