Introducing the MICHELIN CrossClimate tyre with revolutionary performances that keep you safe in every weather condition. It offers the advantages of summer tyres in wet braking, dry braking, longevity, & fuel efficiency, and the advantages of winter tyres in traction and braking for consumers driving in cold or occasional snowy conditions. With the simplicity of only one set of tyres all year long!
And always the acclaimed benefits of MICHELIN Total Performance
The MICHELIN CrossClimate tyre represents the successful fusion of summer and winter technologies to create. MICHELIN’s first-ever summer tyre with winter certification.* MICHELIN CrossClimate is a major new Michelin innovation once again putting MICHELIN Total Performance into practice. MICHELIN CrossClimate is a tyre with revolutionary performances that keep you safe in every weather condition, thanks to the successful fusion of summer and winter technologies.

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.

21.02.2021 from CONSTANTIN PAUN I am definitely satisfied and happy with my purchase. 4 years ago I discovered this tire model and it is the second set (4 pieces) I have. What convinced me? The fact that at any speed, water from the wheels is thrown to the outside of the car and not on the windshield. 0.3-0.5l / 100km savings on diesel consumption. In Germany on the highway I had a top speed of 232km / h. Stability and performance on mountain and speed roads. Long life. For my car this model I could say is perfect.
03.09.2020 from Andy Very comfortable ride with very little road noise. Good grip under all conditions.
09.02.2020 from Bob Very good life span , woz getting approx 45k miles out of a fronts before down to approx 2mm ,rears 65k miles at about 2mm ... front of vechile went a bit vauge in deep tramlined water though ... .
