MICHELIN X-ICE North 3 is the successor of the proven MICHELIN X-ICE North 2 The studded winter tire provides excellent grip on snow and ice.
Better performance on ice and snow
Thanks to the thermoplastic rubber compound and activen recesses in the running surface.
Increased traction on snow
Through the optimized tread FULL ACTIVE TREAD
By the SMART STUD SYSTEM, specially developed for improved anchoring spikes.
Less impact on the environment
Legal for Cold Weather Tyres
Studded tires are generally not permitted in Germany. An exemption may be granted by the relevant road authorities the discretion to § 70 traffic regulations. In general, these only for special vehicles (ambulance services, technical auxiliary, ...) is issued. Under special weather layers, a road authority to declare a particular region 'spikes area' and thus allow individuals such tires. There is a special (parallel to Austrian control) only for Austrian drivers in a 15 km wide strip along the Austrian border, from early October to late May.
The vision of our founders, Edouard and André Michelin, has guided the
development of the MICHELIN brand for more than 125 years: making driving as simple, safe, and
comfortable as possible – first with innovative tires and wheels, followed by road maps, travel guides, and
contributions toward improving traffic infrastructure. Along with this comes a strong engagement with the
environment, as modern mobility must be sustainable and not detrimental to the environment.
Each year the Michelin Group produces more than 178 million tires in 68
production facilities in 17 countries, and it operates sales networks in more than 170 countries. The product
offerings are many: from bicycle, passenger car, truck, motorcycle, and tractor tires, to tires for 5-ton earth-
moving machines. Michelin employs 111,700 people worldwide and owns one of the oldest, most famous
trademarks in the world – the legendary Michelin Man.
Targeted development: MICHELIN Total Performance
In the development of new products, Michelin faithfully pursues the concept of
"MICHELIN Total Performance", backed by the rigorous standard of always bringing together a number of
performance characteristics into a tire, to achieve optimal results. We follow this philosophy not only in the
development of our standard products, but also in motorsports. Numerous technical innovations help to
relieve burdens on the environment, drivers, and businesses. Hidden out of sight in tire casings, tread
designs, and rubber compounds, throughout their lives MICHELIN tires show their full potential: they offer
excellent grip, long life, and reduced fuel consumption thanks to their low rolling resistance.
To better understand the conditions which tires are subjected to in everyday
use, in the summer of 2014 Michelin began a unique research project – the Road Usage Lab. Vehicles from
3,000 drivers in Europe were equipped with special measurement devices to record data about the tires'
use. These valuable findings are being employed in the development of future tire models, making them
better suited to the needs of real drivers.
