Reviews Michelin X-Ice Xi3 winter tires

Virtues

  • - quiet
  • -decent handling
  • - braking on icy asphalt at the highest level
  • -snow (ukatanny, loose) - the norm!

disadvantages

  • enthusiastically draws in all evil spirits ... namely, nails, screws
  • 2 weeks looking for this particular rubber, calling at the same time companies 30 and not once

Comment
235/55/17
two-week ordeal for finding this rubber only added positive emotions from its operation. Somehow it became necessary to get up at a speed of about 40 km / h on the asphalt, which was icy after the thaw. I use my right foot to brake, and my left hand has already crawled into my pocket for an insurer's card. But ... about a miracle! ... I just managed to get up, and almost without an ABS ratchet. For me, this is an unusual feeling after using Goodyear UG500 (a cow on ice). There is, of course, a hitchman, but they are minimal. From the snow-covered parking leaves easily and naturally. There is a thought that the rubber will not last long ... it’s very soft ... but this is just a hypothesis. Generally take, you will not regret

Comment
Size 21560 R16 99N XL, production Spain. It was balanced normally, there are no beats and vibrations on the go. There are no complaints about the quality of manufacturing either. The tires are slightly softer on uneven and significantly quieter summer Dunlop LM703 and winter GoodYear UG500. While the temperature below -3 did not fall, but some conclusions can already be made. On asphalt it slows down a little worse than summer and old (2 seasons) goodres. At the same time, handling and stability on asphalt, even with shallow rut and unevenness, is better. It was also possible to experience the rubber in the country on shallow rolled snow. It's all just great. And braking, and handling, and stability. On the polished ice it slows down noticeably worse than the spike Guder, but it keeps straight and turns well, reacts to turns of the steering wheel gently, predictably. Accelerates subjectively better than Gudier (I managed to climb a rather steep icy hill quietly on the 1st gear without slipping). There are no snowdrifts yet, but I hope the patency will not be worse than it was on the previous car, shod in Michelin X-Ice North 2 (rowed like a tractor). At urban speeds on wet asphalt rides normally, with no complaints of braking and handling. If we compare it with other tires used previously on other cars, I can say that this rubber is more pleasant than Gislaved NF5, Nokian HKPL2, Barum NordPolaris and Michelin X-Ice North 2. I can recommend this rubber to people who are not indifferent to comfort, safety on winter road, but which rarely leave on smooth polished ice.

Comment
Dry asphalt, 0 ... + 5С: Rolls quietly, economically, it slows down a little, but it is predictable.
Managed well, accelerates well.
Wet asphalt, heavy rain, 0 ... + 5C.
There is noisy in the puddles, a small rumble is clearly felt, it’s good on wet asphalt, it slows down and accelerates normally, it is controlled well, it did not lead to extreme conditions.
Heavy snowfall: Well, the car behaves predictably, maneuvers well. With a smooth start confidently gaining speed, adequately slow down.
Dry asphalt, -5 ... -25С: Quiet, economical, it slows down perfectly, maneuverability is high.
Snow slurry, -2 ... + 3C: Slightly noisy at speeds above 60 km / h, good maneuverability, predictability in the norm, slows down in the norm.
Of course, it does not reach the spikes on the ice, but there is no fear for the life and safety of the car at adequate speeds. It is worthy!
Mileage: 15,000 km, 2 seasons, low wear and tear.

Virtues

  • Quiet! Comfortable! Very good road holding!

disadvantages

  • Bad brakes on the polished ice.

Comment
You need to be realistic and understand that iron on the ice slows down much better! But we do not live on Lake Peipsi! Tip: take it, you will not regret it!
It’s awesome after the spikes! They keep the road on asphalt and snow with a bang! There is one thing but the laws of physics and winter driving conditions have not been canceled. Careful on the roads. Volvo s40.

Virtues

  • Silent !!!! Traction with the road completely satisfied! Prior to that, Gislaved Nord Frost 5 thorn. In terms of comfort and behavior on wet and dry pavement like heaven and earth. On the ice, it brakes well, but in such conditions I’ll never exceed the speed on any winter tires (spikes or not spikes, any brand), keep a distance and follow the rule of three D!

disadvantages

  • not found
