Product description & features
The MICHELIN CrossClimate is made with a new rubber compound - to maximise traction.
High levels of silica are used in the tyre's compound, as with a winter tyre - this compound structure ensures a low rolling resistance and consistant performance in winter conditions.
The CrossClimate’s innovative tread design is made with two layers - one on the outer tread and another underneath the surface. This works to minimise any heat transferred through the tyre.
V-shaped blocks and self-blocking 3D Sipes are incorporated into the tyre's tread pattern, further optimising the level of traction that is provided in both winter and summer conditions
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.
