Michelin CrossClimate tyres are no doubt one of the tyres to watch out for this coming autumn. Michelin have now released stocks of the CrossClimate and we are now getting our own stocks in here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax, Yorkshire UK.
it would be impossible to keep all the sizes in stock and so we just stick to the top ten sizes.
Other tyre manufacturers also make similar products, what we call “all-weather tyres”. Apollo vredestein have just brought out another tyr from the long line of the The new Vredestein Quatrac 5 is characterised by the sleek, asymmetrical design of the tread.
Michelins experience in designing and making tyres that are suitable for driving in winter conditions, stems back to the early days of rallying. Michelins experience in rally tyres is second to none, with Pirelli and Goodyear probably coming a close second.
In my opinion the CrossClimate tyre is a culmination of all this experience. The video shows the extreme conditions and driving that these tyres are put through on testing. This is something that was only available to the tyre trade at one time. Now though we have advanced visual aids for all to see and thanks to YouTube, these tyre companies can show the public exactly how their tyres can perform.
A couple of interesting points that i think about when looking at the CrossClimate, is the use of a directional tread pattern. The modern trend is for the development of the asymmetric tread pattern design, which has the “holding the road on all four corners effect”. Another
point is that Michelin show “snow flake emblem” on the Cross-climates side wall. This is a good point and means that the tyre has been thoroughly tested in snow conditions, as the video shows.
