Michelin X-Ice Xi2
Initial Review: 300 miles on tires
February 15, 2012

I purchased this tire for the winter season. Unfortunately it has not snowed too much here where i live. My car makes 320whp and 350wtq to the front wheels. Traction with all seasons or summers in the snow is absolutely ridiculous. I spin, I cant move, the rear likes to move around alot, due to the aftermarket rear sway bar. With these tires i can confidently Glide through powder snow as well as the black ice and/ or packed snow the day after. I gave it a 6 for steering responsivness given to the sidewall thickness and its a snow tire. Great buy. Also i had read about the wear on the blizzaks during dry days and these tires have awesome treadwear for a winter tire. I drove on them for 2 weeks with dry above 40 degree temps and they didnt wear a bit. I would recommend these for a winter tire to anyone who deals with ice or snow.
