Expert Review

There's no question the Michelin X-Ice Xi2 is one of the best winter tire designs available today, considering its high traction levels when dealing with ice and slush. The X-Ice Xi2 is also available for light trucks and SUVs under the Latitude name, but the tread design and overall performance is largely similar. As suggested by the name, the Latitude X-Ice Xi2 works best on icy surfaces.

The tread contains numerous micro pumps and sipes that evacuate water from the contact patch while the plethora of lateral grooves provide effective grip in snowy conditions. This is not a sport tire, though the lower speed rating, aggressive tread blocks, and less-than-ideal dry braking performance suggests spirited driving should be saved for better weather.Rating: 4.75/5
