Long-Term Review of the Michelin X-ICE SNOW Tire: The Introduction

Auto123 carries out a long-term review of Michelin’s new X-ICE SNOW tire; today, the intro.

Last winter, a few weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic invaded Canada, I hit the road in direction of the Laurentian mountains north of Montreal to put to the test a new winter tire developed by Michelin. The X-ICE SNOW tire had just landed at various tire retailers across the country.

In fact, the new Michelin tire, which required three years of development on Canadian soil by the way, will gradually be called upon to replace the X-ICE Xi3 and X-ICE Latitude Xi2. By fall of this year, those two models will have been replaced by this new-generation winter tire manufactured at the Michelin plant in Granton, Nova Scotia.
