Michelin Crossclimate+

Anybody have any experience with these. I ordered two to go on the front of my Cobalt. $81, other choices were Toyo Celcius $82(on rear currently) or Nokian WRG4 $101.

EU comparison of the SUV version.

Compare well to Nokian Weatherproof that looks exactly like the WRG3 or 4 I have on the 11 Rogue that is directional, while the rest of the WRGx I've had aren't.

Edit: Found car version information.

https://alltyretests.com/michelin-crossclimate-plus/

The passenger car review didn't include rolling resistance like the SUV test does. It SUV version had the lowest RR of the tires included.

Edit2: Found a tire rack review. 0.7% worst MPG than best of 4 tested

Not personal experience but like you, I was looking for some winter-worthy tires and of all the reviews and tests I read, this one consistently scored very, very well. Unlike some of those, the Michelins do well enough on winter surfaces to rate the 3PMSF symbol indicating they can be considered a snow tire for those parts of the country that require such. I recommend them to my son to install on his Prius, but I think he went with something else since his local shops didn't stock the Michelins.

All three of my choices have the 3PMSF symbol. Had nokian WRGx on everything but the Cruze till the 15 Rogue needed new ones. SUV sizes didn't wear that well and were very loud. Car sizes have been great. The Toyo's seem to be wearing great and quiet, but I like experimenting and with the Mich being the cheapest made them worth a try.

The Cruze might need new rubber before winter leaning towards the Celcius.
