I purchased new tires maybe a couple weeks ago, I chose to go with the Michelin Crossclimate 2
It finally snowed a decent amount today and I must say I am very impressed with this tire I don't live in an area that gets a lot of snow but every couple of years gets a somewhat decent one. Even with the 2.0 my traction control light did not even flash when I gunned it earlier ( safely away from anything I might hit on private property of course) let's hope that the tires last as many miles as I kind of think they will if they do these will definitely by far be my favorite tires.

Interesting. I've been hearing a lot about this tires and it seems that everyone who has tried them are impressed. Glad you chimed in. I guess I know what I'm getting when I have to switch out tires.

Personally General AltiMax RT43s have been very good to us on our Escapes.

I've put CrossClimate+ on every car in the family but mine (I had snows). They feel a lot like snow tires on snow-covered roads. Unlike the OP, we average 1-inch/day of snow, so I put snows on steel wheels for the years we drove Volvos. These tires are a far easier solution with little drawback.

We have yet to kill a set, so no life data, but I'm not expecting long life given the other performance factors. TANSTAAFL

I have Michelin primacy touring tires and while I don’t have snow here (usually) they seem to be well on track to meet their 60k mile wear warranty. How much are those rated for?

My 2019 Escape Titanium AWD here in Wisconsin came with Continental ContiProContact tires... size P235/45R19. Good God, do those things grip the road, including on ice and snow! I've only seen my traction control light come on twice for a second each time when punching it while starting out from a stop sign on icy streets. This damned Escape grips and handles better on ice and snow than my 4x4 pickup did with aggressive tires.

I have the Firestone Destination LE3. Inexpensive, excellent tire.
