For everyday use they are the the best choice. Better performance on snow than dry or wet. Winter design on summer material. Not so great for high performance and speed but unbeatable at mileage and life time.
I replaced the original tyres with a set of Michelin Cross Terrain at 40 K and found them better in every way to the original , for grip, quietness and long wear. When I needed to replace them I had to accept Michelin Lattitude tyres , as apparently Michelin had discontinued the Cross Terrain. I assumed that the new spec would be at least as good as the Cross Terrains, not so. They were noisier and now need replacement around 10,000 km. earlier in spite of attention to tracking, correct pressures etc. I now find that Cross Terrains are still available in another EU country and at a significantly lower price with free delivery !!!
Came on our 2008 Ford escape. We put over 130,000 kms on these tyres. Worked really well for us.
