      Michelin CrossClimate SUV tires

      All,

      I have been a long term user of Nokian WR, WRG2s and WRG3s on previous vehicles. They have provided me with enough winter traction and reasonable rest-of-year performance, plus with the mountain-snowflake symbol for infrequent trips to Quebec where the symbol is mandatory. We do not put many miles on our cars (especially in the winter) so the compromise is worth it for us. Unfortunately, the Nokian's are not available in the 245/45R20 size for our V90 CC. I suspect the Pirelli's that came with the car are not going to be much fun in the winter so I want to get them replaced.

      The only comparable products to the Nokians are the Toyo Celsius and Michelin's CrossClimate SUV tires (at least, what I can find). From online reviews, I am leaning towards the Michelin. Does anyone have any experience/opinions to add?

      Thanks.

      The CrossClimates are, IMO, new to the US market. Have heard/seen/read good things about them but all in the Euro market. BTW, I am looking at Nokian WRG4s too and although not the exact size, they are available in 255/45R20 for us. Also, look at Vredestein Quatrac 5 in 245/45R20, in addition to Nokians, Toyos, and Michelins.

      Once the stock Pirelli tires are done, I'm looking at this CrossClimate SUV or the new Primacy Tour A/S to replace it. Seems like the CrossClimate+ for cars are getting great reviews. I'm looking for comfort with ride quality and noise as a priorities with driving performance in dry and wet as a very close second.

      I have winter tires, so whichever tire I plan on buying will be used primarily in 3 seasons.

      Let us know what you end up buying and please share your experience.

      Hi

      I have them on my V90 CC, have used for around 20,000 miles, and they still have around 5.5mm of tread left, so 40,000 miles seems possible

      The grip in the cold weather we get in the UK was excellent last winter
