|Michelin Latitude X-Ice - Winter Snow tire
For X-treme winter performance
The Michelin® Latitude™ X-Ice™ features a new generation of winter rubber coumpounds that help deliver predictable grip and performance in challenging winter driving conditions without comprimising tread life. Designed specifically for light trucks and SUVs, the Michelin Latiutude X-Ice also features Cross Z-Sipes Technology (CZST) to help bite through snow and ice.
A Winter Tire with excellent grip on snow and ice. Outstanding braking and handling.
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.* (*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.)
The special FleX-Ice™ compound is formulated to maintain its flexibility under the most extreme cold-weather conditions while Micro-Pumps and Cross Z Sipe technology provide improved stability in all winter conditions. The wide tred contact patch generates acceleration and braking power, as well as cornering traction for outstanding maneuvering on snow and icy roads.
The MICHELIN® Latitude® X-Ice® Xi2 provides long lasting winter performance with sipes and Micro-Pumps that are maintained season after season and MICHELIN® Max Touch Construction™ which features a unique contact patch shape---maximizing even and longer tread life.
The MICHELIN® X-Ice® SNOW tire offers better hydroplaning performance than its predecessors.** The new agressive winter tread design with increased void ratio and V-shaped tread pattern provides increased resistance to aquaplaning and enhanced snow, slush, and wet evacuation.

At Michelin we continuously prioritize safety, durability and fuel efficiency at the same time with minimal trade offs. That is the meaning of MICHELIN® Total Performance™ which will be our difference on every tire.
The MICHELIN® X-Ice® SNOW tire lasts up to one additional winter than the average of leading competitors. The new tread design with interlocking 3D sipes combined with an innovative Evergrip Technology delivers long wear life by providing tread block rigidity and optimizing the tires's contact with the road surface during acceleration, braking and cornering.

Lasting Winter Performance
Excellence in longetivity
Michelin always aims to bring together multiple performances.
Better Starting Grip in Icy Conditions. A special Winter Flex Compound, specially formulated to maintain its grip under the most extreme cold-weather conditions, including snow and ice, to help deliver better starting grip and shorter stopping distances.
Better Traction In All Winter Conditions. Cross Z-Sipes Technology uses a specially designed curve that locks the sipes in place, helping to provide improved grip on snow and ice. And because the sipes are full-depth, their grip lasts winter after winter.
Quiet, Smooth Ride in Cold-Weather Conditions. MICHELIN® Comfort Control Technology™ helps deliver one of the most comfortable rides in the industry by using computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing to offer greatly reduced vibrations and road noise.
