Michelin X-Ice Xi2 is a winter tire for standard sized coupes and sedans. The tread block technology uses a combination of multiple sipes and micro-pumps to cut through snow and gain traction, and FleX-Ice compound used in the composition of the tires allow for increased grip on ice. Cross Z Sipes II and a Step Groove design create full-depth sipes, which improve handling in deep snow and allow the tires to function well even after years of wear. The design incorporates a large contact patch, allowing more of the tread to work when accelerating, braking and cornering. Supporting knobs along the edges of the tires improve stability on wet and dry roads.

I've had these tires on 3 different vehicles now. 1) a supercharged RWD convertible, 2) a V8 RWD sedan, 3) a FWD wagon.

In all 3 situations, this tire has performed FLAWLESSLY.

Most notably is on the convertible. Most people don't drive their sports cars in the winter, but the X-ice's narrow design and deep grooves allowed it to cut right through the snow and the sipes kept it firmly planted on icy hills and roads in my rarely-plowed neighborhood. I found my little convertible smoothly gliding past big 4x4s and AWD SUV's who were stuck in a ditch or snowbank.

The right tires in extreme winter conditions are everything- and these are the right tires.

However, if you drive on salted/regularly plowed/de-iced roads, you may not need something quite this good.
