Had these on my Subaru Forester for about 10000 miles before I traded in for the Freelander. Never a problem with them, although living in SE London, they were never really subjected to daily off-road use, discounting potholes of course Laughing
Decent grip in the wet and cornering; never really had any deep snow in the year they were on. Would have been happy fitting them again.
Mine were only 17s

I found it by doing a 'search' of topics.

I have them on my Focus that I use just for work and have been very pleased with them,fitted at home by the AA and they price match also.

I changed a set of 235x60xR18 Michelin cross climate in last November as one of my Pirelli scorpion verde tyre broke at the tyre wall. Road noise much reduced compared to the Pirelli and they handled very well in wet road I am quite please with them

When I bought mine through Black Circle and I got a decent price and double or triple Tesco club points. Think that worked out about £25 on 5 tyres

I had them all last year through the winter, excellent in the snow despite not being a dedicated snow tyre. Had the F2 reshoed with the same tyres for this winter but sadly wont get to see the car before the Spring....probably 😐 Only dead fish go with the flow

I do about 35k miles a year, so change tyres regularly.

I also live in Cumbria - and we had more than our fair share of snow last week (village totally cut off due to drifts).

Quite frankly, for road driving there isn't a better tyre. Awesome in the snow, quiet on the road and decent mpg. I won't fit anything else.

Hi folks

Recently got my FL2 and looking to change to michelin cross climates. Can I ask a question re your tyre size?

What size are your cross climates? reason Im asking is I've currently got Discovery Cooper AT3's 235 65 17 on when I bought the car and can't find this size in Michelin Cross Climates?

Cheers

Tom
