As the owner of a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada SUV, I have had the opportunity to use the Michelin Cross Terrain SUV tire. This tire was the Original Equipment tire for the Bravada and living in northern Indiana, I used this tire year-round. I found that the Cross Terrain SUV delivers sufficient traction for wintertime conditions and, typical of Michelins, delivers superior ride quality when compared to most other products. When the tires wore out at 64,000 miles, I replaced them with the very same tire. If you are in an area where you need snow traction but prefer not to use a dedicated winter tire such as the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25 4x4, then the Michelin Cross Terrain SUV may be the tire for you.
