Product description & features
The Michelin CrossClimate tyre has been developed to provide motorists with a top performance and safety in every weather condition.
Drivers can be rest assured that the Michelin CrossClimate+ brakes on dry roads like a summer tyre, provides excellent grip on wet roads throughout the year and is approved for use in snow.
Michelin have constructed the CrossClimate+ with a grip-maximising tread compound which provides flexibility - allowing the tyre to conform to the surface of the road, whatever the outside temperature. This enables great grip and traction in varied weather conditions.
With a rigid and bevel edged tread block design, the Michelin CrossClimate+ has improved dry braking performance, and features a unique tread pattern to keep the vehicle mobile when driving on snow.
What is an all season tyre
Designed to cope with all sorts of conditions – with a good performance delivered throughout the year. A moderate natural rubber content is used to stop the tyre hardening in temperatures below 7 degrees.
How can I tell an all season tyre performs in winter weather?
This tyre features the EU sanctioned 3PMSF marking - Three Peak Mountain Snowflake:
This accolade was introduced to be an easily recognisable symbol which displays that the tyre has passed standardised, controlled, and, rigorous tests. It confirms the winter suitability of a tyre.
Are all season tyres suitable for the UK?
Given that the UK suffers from milder and interchangeable winter conditions - with severe ice and snow becoming uncommon for much of the country - this makes all season tyres a very good choice for our roads. As they can cope with these conditions very well.
Do I need to swap my tyres throughout the year?
Given the nature of all season tyres, which can perform equally well in the summer and winter months, the need to replace tyres based on the season is not required.
We recommend that all season tyres should be fitted as a full set of 4.
