2014 Test World Summer Tyre Test - 16th of 16 tyres

  • Overall - The Michelin X Ice Xi3 is a full nordic winter tyre. While this tyre scores extremely well in extreme winter tests, it is no match for the summer tyres in the warmer conditions, stopping nearly 15 meters later than the best summer tyre, and 6.7 meters after the worst summer tyre. This shows northern Europe winter tyres should not be used year round, despite their noise and comfort advantages!

Hello, my review come from Lithuania winter roads. I have bought these tyres in 2013 looking for best quality tyres and I chose Michelin X Ice Xi3 as premium brand and I used them for 5 winter seasons, now they are about 4-5mm still left(new was about 8mm). These were newest model and I wanted to invest to quality product, so I tried them on my BMW E61 530D.
These tyres work very good on icy roads from -0‎°C, at these temperature they become very stable and gives their best properties. Any accidents in 5 years of using, so I think they are pretty good. Grooves on these tyres are not very big, so deep snow would be a bit problem, but I driving BMW with rear driven and I never stuck in country snowy roads even. I recommend Michelin X Ice Xi3 for those who live in city, but sometimes have to drive country roads. They are soft rubber, but don't wear very fast even your car is more powerful than standart class cars.
I would buy different tyres next time just to try another brand

Given 50% while driving a Volkswagen e Golf (205/55 R16) on mostly town for 10,000 easy going miles
Used the X Ice Xi3's on a VW e-Golf; they are terrible winter tires. We continuously scratch our heads when we see these tires score well in tests as they are no better in snow and ice than a typical All Season tire. Ended up getting a different winter tire and running the x Ice as summer tires on the e-Golf. I actually tested the braking on the same icy section of road against cheap General snow tires and they took almost double the distance to stop. I then took my full size RAM pickup with Blizzak's on the same section and was able to stop slightly shorter than the VW with General tires. I'll never buy these again.

Very quiet, the quietest tire I've ever owned not just the quietest winter tire. Very good treadwear, driven at least 50000km and they're still around 7/32. Excellent in snow I've become a much more confident winter driver with these on my car. Also above average in regular wet and dry conditions

On xi 3 I never rode, but on xi 2 I passed four winters. It excellent tires for snow, wet snow, moist asphalt. I live in Crimea, here a winter rarely is snow, in the day-time often temperature 0+12, at such temperatures she behaves as a summer tire in summer, but at speed a to 110-115 km\h.

I have driven my car with these tyre 20.000km on my taxi, the tyre is good.
I like the way my car drive in dry grip, its a lot off grip in these winter tyres for the normal roads, the grips in the wet are very good from all other the winter tyre i have driven with, michelin is absolute a good tyre brand.
I have driven my car 20.000km with these tyres, its very good condition yet, like there were new, i will drive with these next year again.
