2017-01-17 - I am considering buying a set of Crossclimates for my Jaguar - the size is 225/60 16 102W. Discovering the tire is about to be replaced by the Crossclimate+ is making me hesitate! Michelin introduced the original Crossclimate in a fairly narrow set of sizes - my 225/60 16 was not one of them. Is Michelin likely to do the same thing with the new Crossclimate+ - with the slightly less popular tire sizes like mine being introduced later - in which case I should just go ahead and order the original Crossclimate, rather than wait for the Crossclimate+? Does anyone know how Michelin has improved the tire? - Is the new tire a better compromise (better warm dry braking and handling) or is it less fundamental tweaking?
Our full report of what has changed in the new CrossClimate+ can be found here. The sizes will roll out in stages as before, so if you need new tires we'd suggest getting not waiting for the CrossClimate+!
2017-08-30 - I am considering buying either 4 Michelin CC Plus or Goodyear Eagle Asymmetrical 3 for my Jag XF 2.2, tire size 245/45/R18. I live in semi rural Wales just outside Cardiff and although I probably wont be exceeding 10,000 miles a year, I will be driving around the welsh valleys on A and B roads with my new job more than I have previously when I used to catch a train more often than not. Its the million dollar question of whether to pay for winter tires or just a good quality summer tire and now we have the option of an all-season/ weather tire. I don't do any high performance driving etc. We are yet to have another harsh winter since 2012 but no doubt this year will be the year. I was after some advice on the suitability of these two tires for my car and driving situation as a good all rounders but being able to handle a cold snap should it arrive. Also whether I could realistically consider a slightly cheaper tire that would fit the bill? Thanks There is a £30 difference in price on blackcircles.com
If you need to stay mobile when the bad weather comes, and don't want to pair the Goodyear summer tire with a full winter tire, the CrossClimate is your best option.
2018-09-14 - Can someone please help me to decide between 91H and 94V XL. I am going to get 4 of Michelin cross climate plus tires in 205/55 R16 tires for Mercedes B160 Sport. The current factory fitted tires are 215/40 R18 89W XL contis.As I already had 16" wheels with winter tires so I decided to go with cross climates instead of changing wheels and tires twice a year. Now I am struggling to decide that should I get the specified speed and load rating of 91H with softer sidewalls or should I go with 94V XL with stronger sidewall. I don't mind paying little bit extra if there is any benefit. So can someone please help.
Personally I would run the stiffer sidewall option where available as I prefer a sharper steering response over comfort.
2018-11-26 - are these run flat tires
I don't believe there are any runflat sizes of the CrossClimate yet.
2019-03-19 - I would love a set of CrossClimate+ on my car for a hustle free UK driving but iv got an 19" alloy with 225/40. They seem to produce at least one tire in 19" but its a 255 and surely if they produce one they will produce others... My question is do they have other 19" sizes? Are they just unavailable atm?
19" all season tires are currently low demand, so there's a chance it's not produced. Email Michelin to see if it's on their roadmap.
2019-09-25 - I live in Yorkshire and drive an M140i. I am considering the CrossClimate+ as my only tire but not sure if this is too much of a compromise in the summer? The car currently has Pilot Super Sports. Price is not important but driving enjoyment and safety all year round is.
If driving enjoyment is key to you, your best option is to use the CrossClimate+ as a winter tire, and switch back to your summer tires in the summer.
2019-11-05 - Can you tell me what the thread depth is on the New Michelin CROSSCLIMATE SUV car tires?
The tread depth for the CrossClimate+ can vary by size, so it's best to ask michelin directly. The CrossClimate+ usually starts between 6mm and 7.5mm.
2019-11-19 - I am looking at getting some new tires for my car for winter would you say the Michelin crossclimate+ will be good for using all year or I can get another set of wheels for winter use for not that much money and put the cross climates on those to just use in the winter. I currently have Michelin summer tires that need replacing anyway. I am a tire fitter anyway so fitting isn’t a problem and can always swap wheels easily. What sort of difference would we feel in dry summer conditions with the cross climate.
The CrossClimate is the most summer feeling of the all season tires, but you will notice a reduction in handling qualities compared to your summer tires. If you're a tire fitter, I suggest doing the test yourself and letting us know via a review!
2020-05-13 - I am delighted with the review in Finland of TYREREVIEWS, and I am running low on rubber on the front axle on my C class , w204, 225/45/ 17" . I am moving from Oxford to Norwich this summer, and when the fall hits us, I am wondering if the Michellin CC+ are still a good allrounder for the temperature changes, as that area seems to be drier than where I have lived until now?
The CC+ is an excellent all season tire at all temperatures. A summer tire is still the better option if you can avoid snow and very cold temperatures, or live in an area that doesn't get this weather, but if you're looking to fit an all season tire, the CrossClimate+ is the best option for the majority of the UK
