Questions and Answers for the Michelin CrossClimate Plus

2017-01-17 - I am considering buying a set of Crossclimates for my Jaguar - the size is 225/60 16 102W. Discovering the tyre is about to be replaced by the Crossclimate+ is making me hesitate! Michelin introduced the original Crossclimate in a fairly narrow set of sizes - my 225/60 16 was not one of them. Is Michelin likely to do the same thing with the new Crossclimate+ - with the slightly less popular tyre sizes like mine being introduced later - in which case I should just go ahead and order the original Crossclimate, rather than wait for the Crossclimate+? Does anyone know how Michelin has improved the tyre? - Is the new tyre a better compromise (better warm dry braking and handling) or is it less fundamental tweaking?

Our full report of what has changed in the new CrossClimate+ can be found here. The sizes will roll out in stages as before, so if you need new tyres we'd suggest getting not waiting for the CrossClimate+!

2017-08-30 - I am considering buying either 4 Michelin CC Plus or Goodyear Eagle Asymmetrical 3 for my Jag XF 2.2, tyre size 245/45/R18. I live in semi rural Wales just outside Cardiff and although I probably wont be exceeding 10,000 miles a year, I will be driving around the welsh valleys on A and B roads with my new job more than I have previously when I used to catch a train more often than not. Its the million dollar question of whether to pay for winter tyres or just a good quality summer tyre and now we have the option of an all-season/ weather tyre. I don't do any high performance driving etc. We are yet to have another harsh winter since 2012 but no doubt this year will be the year. I was after some advice on the suitability of these two tyres for my car and driving situation as a good all rounders but being able to handle a cold snap should it arrive. Also whether I could realistically consider a slightly cheaper tyre that would fit the bill? Thanks There is a £30 difference in price on blackcircles.com

If you need to stay mobile when the bad weather comes, and don't want to pair the Goodyear summer tyre with a full winter tyre, the CrossClimate is your best option.

2018-09-14 - Can someone please help me to decide between 91H and 94V XL. I am going to get 4 of Michelin cross climate plus tyres in 205/55 R16 tyres for Mercedes B160 Sport. The current factory fitted tyres are 215/40 R18 89W XL contis.As I already had 16" wheels with winter tyres so I decided to go with cross climates instead of changing wheels and tyres twice a year. Now I am struggling to decide that should I get the specified speed and load rating of 91H with softer sidewalls or should I go with 94V XL with stronger sidewall. I don't mind paying little bit extra if there is any benefit. So can someone please help.

Personally I would run the stiffer sidewall option where available as I prefer a sharper steering response over comfort.

2018-11-26 - are these run flat tyres

I don't believe there are any runflat sizes of the CrossClimate yet.

2019-03-19 - I would love a set of CrossClimate+ on my car for a hustle free UK driving but iv got an 19" alloy with 225/40. They seem to produce at least one tyre in 19" but its a 255 and surely if they produce one they will produce others... My question is do they have other 19" sizes? Are they just unavailable atm?

19" all season tyres are currently low demand, so there's a chance it's not produced. Email Michelin to see if it's on their roadmap.

2019-09-25 - I live in Yorkshire and drive an M140i. I am considering the CrossClimate+ as my only tyre but not sure if this is too much of a compromise in the summer? The car currently has Pilot Super Sports. Price is not important but driving enjoyment and safety all year round is.

If driving enjoyment is key to you, your best option is to use the CrossClimate+ as a winter tyre, and switch back to your summer tyres in the summer.

2019-11-05 - Can you tell me what the thread depth is on the New Michelin CROSSCLIMATE SUV car tires?

The tread depth for the CrossClimate+ can vary by size, so it's best to ask michelin directly. The CrossClimate+ usually starts between 6mm and 7.5mm.

2019-11-19 - I am looking at getting some new tyres for my car for winter would you say the Michelin crossclimate+ will be good for using all year or I can get another set of wheels for winter use for not that much money and put the cross climates on those to just use in the winter. I currently have Michelin summer tyres that need replacing anyway. I am a tyre fitter anyway so fitting isnít a problem and can always swap wheels easily. What sort of difference would we feel in dry summer conditions with the cross climate.

The CrossClimate is the most summer feeling of the all season tyres, but you will notice a reduction in handling qualities compared to your summer tyres. If you're a tyre fitter, I suggest doing the test yourself and letting us know via a review!

Top Michelin CrossClimate Plus Review

Given 87% while driving a Skoda Yeti 4 x 4 (225/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 200 easy going miles
Bought set of 4 new Cross Climate XL from Halfords a week ago and only covered approximately 200 miles.

So it is still very early days BUT I have noticed a lot less road noise and much more responsive steering.

My car came with Continental tyres as OEM & has covered just over 21K miles from new - was registered March 2014.

Given 79% while driving a Peugeot 307 SW HDI 136 (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
These tyres are awesome. For me, they are like magic. Almost as good as Primacy 4 in summer but with traction and grip in snow conditions. I usually go skiing and these tyres really make me feel confident on snow. I will never drive summer tyres up to the mountains again. Thank you Michelin, this is a great product.

Given 74% while driving a Audi A6 Avant 2.0TDI (225/55 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 200 average miles
Original Michelin Primacy 3 (AO), had done a good 20,000 miles with a few rotations to even out the wear, but were beginning to loose grip on cold mornings and were down to 2-2.5mm. So with winter on its way, and plenty of research on all-season tires, it took the plunge and ordered some CC+. I have only had them on for a couple of weeks, but the wet/dry grip is very good, especial as it has been cold weather. They seem to do ok with water clearing, have had roads with heavy surface water, no issue, and some big puddles, again no issue. Big disappointment is the noise. Tyre shop sent me on my way with 36/36psi front/back, but there was a significant rhythmic drumming/humming from the tires, which increased pitch with speed, and got much worse on corning. Checked the manual which suggested 41/38psi for lightly loaded, 41/44psi for heavy loaded, on XL M+S tires, so increased to 41 all round. Noise improved, and i can't notice it on the back tires any more, but still on the front. Increased the front so now on 44/41psi, which made a fractional improvement. I have taken the car up to speed (110) to see if there was an issue with alignment, or balancing but all seemed fine. No vibration, no pulling on cruise, acceleration or heavy braking. There now appears to be a small amount of premature rounding wear on the leading edge of the outside block, which would typically be a result of under inflation. But as i am at the very max that the manual suggests, i don't want to put any more air in.

This is the ultimate tyre test! Watch now!
Given 71% while driving a BMW 320d efficient dynamics (205/60 R16 W) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
These were fitted to my BMW 3 series by the lease company as it is their policy. The previous tyres - Mitchelin Primacy 4's were excellent in the dry and wet so when I changed to these cross climate tyres I disappointingly found that I could no longer lean on the tyres the same way in corners, making progress slower and less fun. On the positive side I did notice in very heavy rain that the car was less likely to aquaplane at Motorway speeds and also there was less road noise with these cross climate tyres.

Given 88% while driving a Vauxhall zafira 1.7 diesel (205/55 R16 V) on mostly motorways for 56,000 easy going miles
The CrossClimates were fitted to my Vauxhall Zafira diesel front and rear and they lasted 4 years and 56k miles with tread still remaining on all 4. So you can tell I am a slow driver. Had the same tires on the previous Zafira . Just now (Dec-19) had 4 new CrossClimate+ fitted. I am not a fast driver but I always felt confident with these tires in the dry and especially in the wet and snow. Quiet, hard-wearing and good fuel economy too. What's not to like. Much better than the original tires supplied on the car from new (I did not record the brand, they lasted 28k) and also better than Michelin Energy which I used to use on our cars.

Given 88% while driving a Dacia Sandero Stepway DCI (205/55 R16 H) on mostly country roads for 500 spirited miles
Just bought Michelin Crossclimate +
Massive improvement over the Goodyear Efficient Grip (Summer Tyres) they replaced. Much quieter, car felt more planted on the straights and less understeer in the bends.
They were a lot more usable than the Goodyear Ultragrip 9 snow tyres of winter which never made the car feel that good in snow and general winter driving in the cold and dry.
Wet grip was a vast improvement and stopped really well in an emergency, when previous tyres wouldn't have.
Been fine on frosts down to -5c.
Snow due in the next couple of weeks, quietly confident after watching reviews.
A little concerned about snow braking as there are hardly any test reviews out there.
So far so good, update due after the snow.
