    Motorhome tyres - Michelin Cross Climate



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Its time to get new tyres, and after having fitted 4 x new Michelin Cross Climate tyres to my 1600cc car in December 2017, I believe I shall be going for these:

    https://www.mytyres.co.uk/cgi-bin/rs...koo&Country=UK

    The car in question ( Vauxhall Meriva) travelled to south Wales so I could take my 86 yr old father to a speed awareness course in Coleford.
    If anyone knows that area and the weather last December will know that the area was snow covered, and we had to get to Coleford for 0900hrs in the morning.
    We set off from the Trelleck area and had to turn back several times because there were trees across the road having been felled by the sheer weight of the snow.

    In some cases we were driving on fresh snow (which helps) and only fools and those with 4x4s would be out in that weather, but we managed to keep going and arrived in time to be met by an official who told us that the course had been cancelled because the venue had a power cut (falling trees had cut power). So we set off back home through the picturesque country roads, driving through, what looked like snow tunnels of bent over snow covered trees.


    I am hoping that the Michelin Cross Climate motorhome tyres have the same usefulness as those I had fitted to my car.

    Good Choice.
    Be interesting to hear how they are on the heavier van. I ran them on my car (a DS5) and thought them to be superior to any tyres I have used in the past, both standard and Winter.

    I run Cooper Discoverer on my Land Rover Freelander 2 and Michelin Agilis on the Motorhome. The cooper Discoverer are exceptional in the snow but yet to try the Michelin Agilis (I also carry chunky snow chains in both vehicles just in case).
    Just wandering around and loving it.

    Have Michelin Cross Climate + on my car, great tyre although to be fair they are on a bit of a pampered classic.

    If it wasn't for BF Goodrich AT2's, the Agilis Cross Climate would be my tyre of choice for the van.

    I have been running Cross Climates on my SX4 for some time now, very good tyre both on the road and for light off-roading. I have seen that they are now available in the correct size and load rating for my van, so will probably fit these when needing some new tyres. Other manufacturers are now producing similar car tyres which in tests have been found just as good, but not sure if these are available in van sizes.

    Up until quite recently I was always fitted premium quality tyres such as Pirelli, Goodyear or Michelin, but as I saw their prices spiralling ever more steeply skywards so I started to look around the new vehicles park for various leading car brands such as Mercedes, BMW, Volvo, as well as a lot of the far eastern brands such as Toyota, Nissan, KIA etc. and I noticed that a lot of them were being fitted with KUMHO, HANKOOK, YOKOHAMA, BRIDGESTONE etc. I started to think, if they are good enough for them to fit as original equipment they must be OK.

    So I decided to switch over to running my daily driver BMW as well as our Renault Master conversion on Kumho tyres and that is now many thousands of miles ago and I am very well pleased with my choice, it also saved me way more than a few bob as well.

    I've just done a few calcs, for the equivalent Kumho's to Michelin Cross Climates fitted to my SX4, after around 20,000 miles the cost will be the same due to differences in fuel consumption, also the Kumho's when tested have been shown to be worse for handling, traction, and braking in the conditions mostly found in UK. As for OE tyres, the SX4 came with Continental Premium Contact, I dumped these at half worn as I found them so bad.

    When I started looking for tyres I was interested in the cross climates but unfortunately it turned out only Continental made tyres to fit my rims and meet axle loadings. I only had the choice of two and selected the 4 Season tyres, initially I thought they were a bit harsher than the original Contiís but they have settled in okay. They have the snowflake M&S but not the 3 Peaks, couldnít get Any 3 Peak tyre to fit mine unfortunately.

    How long ago was this? wondering as I think I have the same wheel size as you and similar loading and found Cross Climates to suit when I checked. But this was recent and maybe just introduced when I happened to check.

    Talking of Continentals, I still have these.
    Van came fitted with those from factory, changed them after van was converted.
