Michelin is one of the most prominent tire brands globally, and its X-ICE Xi3 stands out as a premium winter tire that performs with flying colors in snowy and wet weather winter conditions, getting top marks that can be attributed to the tire's FleX-Ice silica based rubber compound that offers flexibility in colder temps and firmness when things warm up. The tire's independent shoulder and intermediate tread blocks with Cross Z Sipes increase traction, while the directional tread pattern disperses water and slush. Our independent tests showed that the X-ICE Xi3 is excellent in ice and snow, while the steering response is a bit compromised when the road is dry. Nevertheless, the Xi3 remains an solid inclement weather choice for cars, minivans and smaller crossovers.

Kal's Test Results

"Excellent winter tire. Steering response a bit sluggish on dry pavement."

?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.
