The Michelin CrossClimate 2 has received generally positive reviews in various tests for its impressive performance on snow and dry surfaces. The tire provides high grip levels, reliable handling, and short braking distances in snowy and dry conditions. It also offers precise steering, good rolling comfort, and fuel-saving rolling resistance.
However, some tests have found that the tire's performance in wet conditions is not as strong, with longer braking distances, understeering, and limited grip. The tire's aquaplaning resistance is somewhat inconsistent, with some tests noting excellent resistance while others reporting limited safety. Additionally, a few tests have mentioned the presence of a faint noise at certain speeds and average economic efficiency.
In summary, the Michelin CrossClimate 2 is an exceptional all-season tire with outstanding snow and dry performance but could benefit from some improvements in wet conditions. Future generations of the tire should aim to trade-off some of its excellent snow capabilities for better overall balance in its performance across various weather situations.
