New Michelin CrossClimate
Timely news for Irish motorists is the announcement by Michelin of its plans to expand its range of summer tyres with winter capabilities with the introduction of CrossClimate+ fitments, built to offer improved traction on snow-covered roads.
New All-Weather Tyres
Michelin have also let it known that they intend to make the tyre more “snow friendly”. I do find this strange. Because, I wonder if the giant French tyre makers have had problems with the early version of these tyres.
The new tyre will be known as the CrossClimate +. Naturally, this tyre is expected to give better traction in snowy weather. Of course, I am not sure if the lack of snow traction was found in test conditions, or reported to them by their customers.
However as long as they have corrected any discretion, then it must be a good thing.
Zooming forward to the current year 2021 then the Michelin product has seen much success! Competing with all the other tyre makers and doing rather well.
