Michelin X-Ice Xi3 Radial Tire
The Michelin X-Ice Xi3 could be described as the opposite of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4. These winter tires prioritize snow and ice traction over the ability to handle sport driving on dry pavement. Flexible compound and innovative tread design allow for the X-Ice Xi3 to exert an authoritative grip in almost all winter conditions, resulting in tires that are easy and fun to drive with.
Performance is overall improved over the X-Ice Xi2s, with responsive, predictable handling and short stopping distances. The X-Ice Xi3 functions much like a good all-season tire in cold conditions, with less of the tread squirm or imprecision usually seen with winter tires with good hydroplaning resistance. Once they hit snow or ice, these stud-less winter tires show they’re some of the best available for the price.
