Michelin's X-ICE Snow is a reliable winter tire that lives up to its name. In our independent road testing, the X-ICE Snow earned top-tier results for both cornering and braking in the snow while maintaining excellent braking ability on ice and "very good" overall performance on wet and dry winter roads. Regardless of where the road takes you, Michelin's X-ICE Snow can take you there.

?Summer vs Winter Tests

BRAKING

We varied our approach speeds by driving surface and by season for two reasons. First, this represents how most Canadians would normally drive on that surface in each season. Second, testing in both seasons provides an indication of how a tire's performance will be affected by road temperature.

CORNERING

To understand how road surface temperatures affect the cornering performance of a tire, our cornering tests are completed in both summer conditions (dry and wet pavement, and gravel roads) and winter conditions (dry, wet and icy pavement). Please note that slush is also tested but completed in a specific slush cornering test..

?Independent & Objective Testing

The independent tire testers conducted extensive tests to determine how the tires in our core line-up perform in a range of conditions in both summer and winter. To maintain neutrality, no driver knew the specifics of the tires they were testing each time. All results were analyzed and processed by the testing group and then provided to Kal Tire for sharing with our customers.

EXCELLENT MICHELIN WINTER TIRES

5.0

Excellent assured cornering and stopping in the wet.

On the recommendation of my local KalTire rep and because my preferred brand (Michelin) were not available at the time, I replaced my worn-out Michelin snow's with another highly-rated brand. However, with the replacements, there was a noticeable lag between when I made a steering input and when the tires reacted, and in addition they had poor grip when cornering, both likely as a result of the rubber compound being optimized for colder conditions than we typically experience on the West Coast. I went back to KalTire and was able to replace then with the latest Michelin's (which by then were available), and which seem to have a rubber compound better suited to West Coast temperatures.

Best tires I have ever had for winter driving. Hold like crazy. Handle hydroplaning easily. Never seem to let go of the road.
