Michelin X-Ice

The X-Ice is Michelin's Studless Ice & Snow winter tire developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans & family vans that want a boost in winter driving confidence. X-Ice winter tires are designed to combine X-tra ice & snow traction with enhanced handling on wet & dry roads.

The X-Ice molds an advanced silica-based winter tread rubber compound that remains flexible at lower temperatures into a directional tread design that helps maintain good traction on wet & slush-covered roads. It features Cross Z-Sipes Technology to increase tread & shoulder block stability to provide the lateral & longitudinal stiffness for better handling on dry & wet roads & more grip on ice- & snow-covered roads The X-Ice winter tire’s combination of capabilities is made possible by Michelin's Stress Equilibrium casing that evenly distributes the contact forces across the footprint.

Michelin X-Ice winter tires meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements & are branded with the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol. The X-Ice winter radials feature blackwall styling & are available in 80-, 75-, 70-, 65-, 60-, 55- & 50-series, Q-speed rated sizes for 13" through 17" wheel diameters.

NOTE: Snow platform indicators (the equivalent of “snow wear bars”) are molded into the X-Ice's tread grooves to inform the driver when ice & snow traction will be reduced as the tire’s tread wear reaches the point where the remaining tread depth becomes less effective in deep snow.

Install X-Ice tires in sets of four only.

Due to the traction capabilities of the X-Ice, Michelin recommends using X-Ice tires in sets of four to provide the best handling characteristics & tire performance.
