Michelin X-Ice Xi3
Follow-Up Review: 38,000 miles on tires
These tires are great in snowy/icy conditions! I've used them for three winters, and it looks like I could have them for a fourth winter because the tread is still good at about 38K. I've heard that snow tires tend to wear out after a couple of winters, and there is a touch more slippage, but these are holding their own. We had more ice and wet snow than powder this past season, so I noticed a little more slippage. I am looking forward to one more winter with this set before I replace with another Michelin X-Ice set.
Initial Review: 11,000 miles on tires
Great traction in snow and on ice - better than its predecessor, the Xi2, especially on ice.
