Excellent wet braking & shorter braking distances on dry roads
Severe snow rated for great snow traction (3PMSF)
Safety Made to Last Choose peace of mind on rainy days. A directional tread pattern evacuates water from the contact patch, giving optimum wet traction. On wet pavement when worn, four leading competitive tires were still traveling at more than 24 mph where the MICHELIN® CrossClimate®2 tire had already stopped. Under the same conditions, it also stops up to 56 feet shorter than four leading competitive tires.
Tread Life You Expect The MICHELIN® CrossClimate®2 tire provides up to one year of additional treadlife compared to four leading competitive tire V-formation tread design distributes forces evenly throughout the contact patch for smooth and even wear, while 3-D SipeLock technology improves treadwear resistance. PIANO Noise Reduction Tuning minimizes noise levels and ensures a quiet ride.
The Smart Choice For All Climates The long-lasting MICHELIN® CrossClimate®2 tire stopped up to 16 feet shorter than four leading competitive tires on dry pavement. The V-formation tread design angles the blocks for maximum grip, while V-Ramps on the tread block edges optimize road contact for outstanding dry braking.
Performance in Every Season When worn near the end of treadlife, the MICHELIN® CrossClimate®2 tire outperformed four leading competitive tires by 28% to 31% for snow traction. The V-formation tread design bites into snow for greater traction, while 3-D SipeLock technology maintains stability. Don't let winter stop your drive.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
