Why should you consider this tire?
 

Winter grip made to last.

The Michelin X-Ice SNOW tire offers shorter ice and snow stopping distances thanks to the exceptional grip provided by having two types of full-depth 3D sipes for an increased claw effect on snow and ice and for long-lasting biting edges.1

Highest performing tire in snow traction2

The Michelin X-Ice SNOW tire provides more snow traction performance than competitors.2  The innovative Evergrip Technology and the multiple biting edges of the 3D interlocking sipes provide superior traction on snowy surfaces.

The Michelin X-Ice Snow tire is the highest performing tire in snow traction on EVs and provides more snow traction performance than EV marked competitor tires.6

Improved hydroplaning and slush performance3

The Michelin X-Ice SNOW tire offers better hydroplaning performance than its predecessors.3

The aggressive winter tread design with increased void ratio and V-shaped tread pattern provides increased resistance to aquaplaning and enhanced snow, slush, and water evacuation.

Excellence in longevity

The Michelin X-Ice SNOW tire lasts up to one additional winter than the average of leading competitors.4

The tread design with interlocking 3D sipes combined with the Flex-IceTM 2.0 tread compound delivers long wear life by providing tread block rigidity and optimizing the tires's contact with the road surface during acceleration, braking and cornering.

Warranties

Standard Limited Warranty

All Michelin tires have a Standard Manufacturer's Limited Warranty, which covers defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original usable tread, or for 6 years from date of purchase, whichever occurs first.

*Mileage Warranty Exceptions

Split fitments – If your vehicle has tires of different sizes on the front versus the rear axles, your tires cannot be rotated as recommended. Therefore, the mileage warranty on each rear tire will cover half the number of miles as the standard mileage warranty for that particular tire line. ZP (Zero Pressure) tires – The maximum mileage warranty for ZP tires is 30,000 miles.

Legal Notes

(1) New, at 10,000 km, and when worn to 4 mm and 2 mm tread depth, the Michelin X-Ice SNOW tire offers shorter snow and ice stopping distances on average than its predecessor, based on third-party snow braking test (between 35 km/h and 5 km/h) and ice braking test (between 30 km/h and 5 km/h), in December 2019 and January 2020: (1) on a Volkswagen® Golf 1.5 TSI comparing the Michelin X-Ice SNOW tire versus Michelin X-ICE Xi3 in tire size 205/55R16 94H XL, and (2) on a Volkswagen® Tiguan comparing the Michelin X-Ice SNOW SUV tire versus Michelin Latitude X-ICE Xi2 in tire size 235/55R19 105H XL.

 

(2) Based on third-party snow traction tests comparing the Michelin X-Ice SNOW tire (size 235/45R18) against the Nokian® Hakkapeliitta RS EV tire (235/45R18), the Bridgestone® WS90 tire (235/45R18), and the Pirelli® Sottozero 3 tire (235/40R19). Actual on-road results may vary.

 

(3) Based on: (1) internal hydroplaning longitudinal acceleration test performed in France in March 2019, on a Volkswagen® Golf 7 comparing the Michelin X-Ice SNOW tire versus Michelin X-ICE Xi3 in tire size 205/55R16 94H XL and on: (2) internal hydroplaning curve test performed in Japan in February 2019, on an AUDI® A4, comparing the Michelin X-Ice SNOW tire versus Michelin X-ICE Xi3 in tire size 205/55R16 94H XL.

 

(4) Based on third-party longevity tests, in North Finland between October 2019 and January 2020, on a Volkswagen® Golf 1.5 TSI comparing the Michelin X-Ice SNOW tire versus BRIDGESTONE® Blizzak WS-90, CONTINENTAL® Viking Contact 7, NOKIAN® Hakkappeliitta R3, GOODYEAR® UltraGrip Ice 2, Pirelli® Ice Zero FR in tire size 205/55R16 94H XL. 12,000 kilometres driven per winter is estimated from annual average kilometres driven in Canada per vehicle by Desrosiers Automotive Consultants. A winter season is defined as six months.

 

(5) Based on internal on-vehicle noise testing in tire size 235/45R18 XL using a 2020 Tesla Model 3 Performance vehicle comparing the Michelin X-Ice Snow tire versus the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R5 EV tire and the Bridgestone WS90 tire. Actual on-road results may vary.

 

(6) Based on third-party snow traction tests comparing the Michelin X-Ice Snow tire (size 235/45R18) against the Nokian Hakkapeliitta RS EV tire (235/45R18), and the Pirelli Sottozero 3 tire (235/40R19). Actual on-road results may vary.

 

 

Government UTQG Ratings do not apply to winter tires.

>> The sizes shown are average design values for tires measured on specified measuring rim widths. Some tires may vary from this value by +/-3% of the section height (affecting overall diameter), and +/-4% of the section width.
>> Section width varies approximately 0.2" (5mm) for every 0.5" change in rim width.
>> Tread patterns are often tuned to accomodate different tire widths. Tires for a particular dimension of a given tireline may vary in appearance from the tire shown in the photograph.

XL = Extra Load
DIR = Directional

WARNING: Serious or fatal injury may result from tire failure due to underinflation or overloading. To ensure correct air pressure and vehicle load, refer to vehicle owner's manual or tire information placard on the vehicle. Serious injury or death may result from explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting. Only tire professionals should mount tires and they should never inflate beyond 40 psi to seat the beads. Before mixing types of tires in any configuration on any vehicle, be sure to check the vehicle owner's manual for its recommendations.

DANGER: Never mount a 16" diameter tire on a 16.5" rim.
DANGER: Never mount a 17" diameter tire on a 17.5" rim.

Inflation pressure increase must not exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tire sidewall. When a customer requests a replacement tire with a lower speed rating than the original equipment tire, you must clearly communicate to him or her that the handling of the vehicle may be different, and that its maximum speed capability is limited to that of the lowest speed-rated tire on the vehicle. Exceeding the lawful speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.

For high-speed driving, additional inflation pressure and possibly reduced tire loading and/or upsizing is required. In the absence of specific recommendations by the vehicle manufacturer, use the following guidelines based on those in the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization Standards Manual.

For speeds over 160km/h (100 mph), load and inflation must be adjusted according to the table below.

 

T-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (mph)  100  106  112  118
Inflation Increase (psi)  0.0  1.0  2.0  3.0
Load Capacity (% of max.)  100  100  100  100

 

H-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (mph)  100  106  112  118  124  130
Inflation Increase (psi)  0.0  1.0  2.0  3.0  4.0  5.0
Load Capacity (% of max.)  100  100  100  100  100  100
