Latest Tyre Test Results

2022 Tyre Reviews Studless Winter Tyre Test - 1st of 9 tyres

  • Positive - Best aquaplaning resistance and very good in the wet with excellent handling, best ice braking and very good on ice, good in all the snow tests, very good in the dry. Low noise, high levels of comfort, lowest rolling resistance on test.
  • Negative - Average dry braking.
  • Overall - The Michelin couldn't quite match the Continental in the dry, but was essentially the same in the wet and had the best hydroplaning resistance of all the tyres on test. It was a few percent behind the Continental in the snow but equaled it on the ice. It was also quiet and comfortable and had the best rolling resistance of all the tyres tested.

Michelin Pilot Sport 4S vs Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 vs Michelin X-Ice Snow - 1st of 3 tyres

  • Overall - Unsurprisingly, the Michelin X-Ice Snow extreme winter tyre dominated the snow testing. The most impressive quality of the tyre was just how rounded the performance was on snow, with a near flawless balance between traction, braking and cornering, giving you a huge amount of confidence to push the car to the limits, and past, where the tyre was progressive and easy to drive.

Given 93% while driving a Fiat Panda 4 x4 (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Previously owned the Michelin alpin 4a on a volkswagen tiguan. Fantastic tyres, Decided to choose the new version for my Fiat Panda cross. The x ice snow is an amazing tyre. It has been raining and snowing for the last month, i leave for work every morning in -10c and come home at night in -3c. Fresh snow, sludge, rain and ice. The tyre is amazing. I feel confident while driving In all conditions. Recently went offroading in a few mountain trails. Parked the car up and iced road, jumped out with the kids, and we could not walk without falling over, Completely iced over. I did not even realise there was ice, the tyres did not brake traction once.. Amazing tyres on ice, amazing. I have always used michelin , on all my cars. weather summer or winter. Never let me down.

Tesla Model S (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
Absolutely superb winter tire. As we near one of the snowiest winters in several years in northeast Ohio, I can say with confidence these are the best snow tires I’ve used. I was a Blizzak believer until these tires. And while the Blizzaks are still one of the best snow tires available, the Michelin X-Ice Snow outperforms them in every way. Road noise, while present, is is unobtrusive, especially for a vehicle as quiet as a Tesla. The ride was firm and confident, and slightly better than the OEM Goodyear Touring that came with the car. Range dropped slightly, but not excessively. Wet grip was better than the OEM Goodyears as well. As for wear, I expect to get 3-4 winter seasons (18,000-24,000 miles), which I think is good for a winter tire driven “spiritedly” on a car as heavy as a Tesla. I will absolutely buy again.

Given 87% while driving a Subaru Outback (225/65 R17) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
Last year I replaced a set of Michelin x-ice xi2 with the x-ice snow. I have found the x-ice snows have more grip in the snow and ice and particularly more lateral grip than the xi2. While still a fairly quiet and comfortable winter tire, the x-ice snows are less so than the xi2. However, I am happy to make that trade in a winter tire. So far wear has been excellent.

Given 96% while driving a Audi 1.8T Quattro (205/60 R16) on a combination of roads for 3,000 easy going miles
Extremely comfortable and pretty quiet. Very good on snow. Breaking on ice still feels little bit worse than Michelin X-Ice Xi2 I used before.
