Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2
Follow-Up Review: 30,000 miles on tires
March 17, 2015
Follow up on my review. I ran them through last summer and come fall the still had legal tread, so I tried them in our first snow storm. They STILL had decent traction, even on ice, so I ran them through the winter. The rears are now starting to wear through the last of the siping, so I will put my Conti all seasons on soon. We had our last storm in late February, so I tested them in the snow. Not bad for tires that are almost worn out.<br><br>I would not have run them through this last winter if I still drove to the mountains in snow storms. I doubt they would have done well in deep snow or at speed with that little tread.
Initial Review: 24,000 miles on tires

I bought these tires about six years ago when I was still skiing. They performed well and have held up better than the stock Geolanders, which wore out at about 20,000 miles. This spring I decided to run them through the summer to get the last miles out for them. They perform nicely in warm weather, unlike many snows that get squirelly when the temps rise. I only drive about 7,000 miles per year and found that the tires still haven't worn down to the snow marker, so I have left them on for one last winter. Two storms into winter I find they still have decent snow and ice grip. Not like new, but much better than the stock all seasons. It looks like I will get 30,000 out of them if I run them through the next summer. Amazing!
