Winter Tires

My 2014 Cruze was new last winter, and I immediately noticed that the stock tires I had were the worst I'd experienced in the snow. I had considered winter tires before, living in Michigan, but that was the final straw. I got a set of Michelin X-Ice, and couldn't have been happier. With our mild winter so far, I haven't bothered to switch them out, but I will get around to it.

While I was happy with the Michelins, I had no point of comparisons other than to say they're worlds better than all seasons. I found the car and driver article linked below pretty interesting. I think it's worth a read for anyone who is considering a set of winter rubber or might be on the fence. They seemed to like my choice, but the bottom line was that even the "wrong" winter tire was an improvement over even high-end all seasons.

Who else drives on Winters?

You can have mine if I can't get up my hill again in the next storm. Xi3's will never touch another one of my vehicles

Not sure tbh, moved here 6 months after I bought the cruze and never tried this hill with any other tire. What I do know is every other car on my hill has no problem including 2 vw jettas and a focus hatch and a vw golf. Makes me so angry.

I really love cooper weathermaster st/2 tires. Had them on my cobalt and it was like a tank. The old style uniroyal tiger paw snow tires were amazing too.

Second season on our Xi3s - absolutely fantastic tire. Has pulled the car through snow higher than the ground clearance of the vehicle.
We shall see my friend! I've lowered my tire pressure and have come up with a new tactic to get up my hill. There's a storm coming Wednesday I may be able to try out.
