got a 4wd and factory spec is 225/60R18 on 7Jx18 ET45
want all-weathers but selection is terrible

will crossclimate suv last at least 5 winters?

at that price might just get geolandar a/t g015, but not sure if they'll rub in a g3 grand vitara with stock 18" lol

I am not sure of their performance; just bought a set of Cross Climate Plus to try but I also have a set of dedicated winters to fall back on...

The Cross Climate I have are made in Germany and they drive fine, though a bit noisy at times... It will be at least four months from now to see snow...

Long shot here but does anyone have experience the Cooper Discoverer Enduramax? Supposedly a new all-weather that came out this summer.

hi all,

my situation is as follows:

-Live in North Shore in Vancouver Lower Mainland
-'07 Mazda 3
-have 2 sets of Rims, main set is 225/40R18, and winter tire set are 205/55R16
-main set of rims have a Toyo tire mounted maybe 30-35% left.
-The winter tires need to be replaced as they are done, maybe 5-10% left if that.
-Getting tired of swapping from regular to winter rims.
-my experience for the past 5 years are that we have a week or so of snow a year and thats it.
-North Shore gets really good road maintenance when the snow comes out.
-We get a lot more rain than Snow.

My take is that i should get an all weather tire and will go with putting them on the 16" rims. No more swapping as we will likely be swapping cars in the next 2 years (or less). Wet performance is my main concern, so having a bit of a debate between the following tires only.

Goodyear WeatherReady
Michelin Crossclimate Plus
Michelin Crossclimate 2 (siping pattern looks better than the plus)

seems like the goodyear may be better in snow but michelins are better in rain. anyone have personal experience or opinions on wet performance for each of these?

Looks interesting. Too new to have many reviews yet. Tirerack has done a test, and it looks promising:

https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.js ... +EnduraMax

I'd been looking seriously at the Firestone Weathergrip, which works great on some cars. However, some people seem to have experienced noisy rough drives, or vibration issues with that tire. It may just be the car itself. However, rather than take a risk, I might just go with the Cooper. It's tread looks more conventional than the Weathergrip, so hopefully it will drive more normally as well in dry/wet conditions.

Michelin has just started a $100 rebate for some tires, for two weeks only:

https://www.michelin.ca/en/promotion/promocc2.html

You may have a hard time getting the Cross Climate 2. There are none in Ontario and Quebec, until sometime in October. Production slowdown because of Covid. I checked with Kaltire, and the price of those tires was unexpectedly low, even lower than the original Cross Climate. $215 each for my size (235/65r17). If they were available, I would have been tempted, especially with the rebate.

Ended up getting the Toyo Celsius off blackcircles because the price was the best I seen. The price was far better than Quattro tires for my 245/50/20. I avrd

Ordered on Sept 4th and arrived today sept 9th. The DOT were all March 2020. Definitely recommended.

Regarding the tires, I Will update on how it performs in the winter.

I think I'm going to order a set of Michelin CrossClimate2's even though they reduced the traction rating from the CC+ model.
Its them or Nordman WR SUV or Solstice SUV tires.

Hmm, need to decide by the 15th for the $100 Michelin rebate they have going right now...
