I had Michelin X-Ice tires on my pickup truck for the last 3 or 4 winters. They are nice and quiet, and work well in non snowy conditions. No squirmy handling, or loud noise. The snow and ice performance was fine, though not mind blowing. With 4 wheel drive, I did not have to worry about deep snow. We almost never get more than a foot of snow at a time in St. Catharines anyway. They worked way better in cold rainy conditions than my winter rated Dunlop RVXT A/T tires.
As the Michelins wore out, I decided to run them down this summer, since they did not have another winter left in them. Not shockingly, they wore out really fast. Had I rotated them, maybe I could have got to the start of this coming winter, but they did not make it. My front tires had insufficient tread depth to make it through heavy rain conditions without hydroplane risk. I'll definitely be getting an alignment when I get my new tires too, since the wear was not as even as it should have been.
