Sounds like an amazing tyre from what the michelin website says - but presumably because its so new I can't find any reviews or information on it.

Well - I've finally bought some of these. Will update the thread when I get them on and do some testing.

I'll be interested to hear your findings- I considered them last time round but went Tour-HP instead as I'd read a lot of negative reviews on the Cross re. road noise.

Been running them for a few days now. Not done anything off-road yet though. Noise does seem slightly (I really mean hardly noticeable) more. Certainly happy with it given how good I'm hoping they'll be off road. I trusted the decibel rating for an idea of noise - 71db - seemed pretty low. Certainly compared to a proper AT tyre. They are quite firm feeling - even at factory tyre pressures, but actually in quite a reassuring way. They look great too. Alloy wheel Tire Automotive tire Wheel Vehicle

Hi, I'm considering getting these in 215/70/16. What size are you running? Would you mind please updating your review and the off road performance of these tires? Thanks.

Hiya,

Actually I still haven't really tested them in anything too slippery or muddy - however I have put them through their paces on wet grassy slopes. Seemed fine although after a few passes on the same section they got overwhelmed and lost traction. From what I've hard though that is a very demanding surface for any tire. They seem to be a very tough tire thiugh - not showing much wear. Excellent on road.
