2021-10-14 - Does the New CrossClimate 2 have a Run Flat option?
There is currently only one runflat size of the CC2, 225/45 R18. You can see all the sizes available here.
2021-09-20 - How would these do on the track? Would it be possible to have these on year round PLUS use them on the racetrack for some fun driving (not trying to get the best lap times, just driving for fun).
For an all season tyre, they would perform well, but like all tyres of this category you will notice poor heat resistance and high wear when hot, so I cannot recommend driving any all season tyre on track.
2021-09-23 - How does the CrosscClimate 2 compare to a summer tyre like Bridgestone Turanza T005 or the Goodyear EfficientGrip 2 when it comes to Rolling resistance ?
Our all season tyre test has data covering this.
2022-01-08 - I want to purchase the Michelin CrossClimate 2 in the size 225/45R17 94, which is available with V and Y speed index. Both would suffice for my car as the rated top speed is 235 km/h so what are the pros and cons of V vs Y?
Generally, the lower speed rating should have a very small advantage in comfort, however some tyre manufacturers are now making the same tyre for multiple speed and load indexes the same, just having a different marking, so in this case I'd buy whatever is more wallet friendly.
2022-03-26 - Would Cross Climate be good (or best choice) as all season tyre on a Mercedes A Class (2013 - Amg line, 1.6 156bhp) - Tyre size 225/40 R18 92Y? thanks in advance
The Crossclimate 2 is an excellent all season tyre, as are the all season tyres from Continental and Goodyear. There's lots of test data on the site so show you which tyre is best in each area.
2022-11-10 - Just have to say I love your videos so I have a Mk1 audi tt the tyres are getting a little worn now so I was thinking about a all season tyre as a alternative to a winter tyre as I live in England and its not that bad would this make a good alternative to a winter tyre in England
The CC2 makes an excellent winter tyre for regions that don't see extreme winters like the UK.
2022-12-11 - I drive a front wheel drive car and currently have four summer tyres fitted. Can I replace the front two tyres with CC2s leaving summer tyres on the rear ? Is this legal and ok for insurance purposes. Great site guys !
It is legal, and technically it's the correct way to do it, but keep this in mind - While the car will have a safe understeer balance in snow and perhaps very cold wet weather, in the dry it's likely you'll have more grip at the front so there's potential for oversteer during extreme maneuvers.
2023-01-23 - Initially the Cross Climate 2 seemed to be open to being used with an SUV, prior to an SUV version coming out. Since May 2022 the SUV version has been released. What is the difference between them if both can be used on the SUV? Should we take the CC2 ratings from across your tests and assume they are the same for the SUV version? Thanks - great site!
Yes, the CC2 and CC2 SUV are just naming differences and are available in differing sizes and load ratings. The tyre performance should be exactly the same.
2023-01-23 - Michelin did a great test on their launch comparing a worn, 2mm tread, CC2 with their competitors at the same worn tread. While this gave a great indicator of comparative performance it was clear that ALL tyres changed hugely in performance at 2mm vs brand new.
Would it be possible to do review some tyres across a range of tread depth (i.e. 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 6mm) to compare performance and see if the decline is linear or exponential (just like you wonderfully did across a range of temperatures)? This would help inform when the best time to replace a tyre is to keep a good balance of safety and performance.
