Michelin Agilis CrossClimate Review: a Game Changer

Michelin Agilis Crossclimate Review

While passenger-car drivers have many tire options, both in terms of weather and performance, commercial-van drivers, not so much. Even worse, there is not much development in the design of these tires – it seems like the tread patterns have been stuck in time. However, there was a recent development that could change things in the commercial-van tire sector, and it comes from Michelin.

The French brand is known for pushing the envelope in the tire industry for over a century now. It not only brought the pneumatic tire to the world, but it also brought us radial tires and run-flat tires. Now, Michelin wants to reinvent the commercial-van tire with the Agilis CrossClimate. Michelin’s latest van tire is similar to all-weather tires for passenger cars, meaning it aims to provide excellent traction throughout the year.

Hence, if you don’t mind the slightly lower treadwear warranty, you should definitely buy the CrossClimate 2.

Moreover, the company says that the Pilot Sport All-Season 4 offers excellent handling and braking on wet roads and usable traction in light snow.

Michelin Primacy MXM4 Review: Excellent but Costly

Michelin Primacy Mxm4 Review

The touring and grand-touring tire categories are by far the most popular on the market. That’s mostly thanks to the value these tires provide – they aren’t overly expensive, yet they offer outstanding treadlife and last for at least 4-5 years.

The thing that these tires aren’t known for is performance – they simply lack in the handling department. Michelin, being the most advanced tire manufacturer in the world, saw an opportunity here.

With the Primacy MXM4, the company wanted to give drivers of luxury and performance cars the long treadlife of a grand-touring tire, with the responsive and grippy handling of a high-performance tire.
