Michelin tires, particularly the lineup of winter tires, are popular in Canada. Two Michelin models ? the Michelin X-Ice Xi3 and the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2 ? made Wheels.ca's best winter tire list for 2015.
Wheels.ca named the Michelin X-Ice Xi3 one of the best performers for the passenger cars and mini vans list. Made of a silica compound, the tire remains flexible at low temperatures, improving vehicle handling. The wide tread on the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2 improves acceleration and braking ability and landed it on the best overall performers list for SUVs and light trucks. The tire also has increased cornering traction, doesn't vibrate as much as most snow tires and doesn't wear out as rapidly.
