It is called the CrossClimate, and Michelin says
"………..With official approval for winter use, the MICHELIN CrossClimate tire is a combination of summer and winter tire technologies, incompatible until now…."

It has an aggressive, directional tread design, and is intended for the European market. They are really making a big deal out of this, calling it a "turning point in history" as if they had never heard of the Nokian WR-G3. crackmeup

I'll make a note to save winter tire talk until it's 100 degrees and 100% humidity. I am going to be buying a set this summer ...

Would this tire necessarily be better in winter than our all season tires?

The Nokian WR-G3 is per Nokian an all-weather tire. Hankook Optimo 4S, Goodyear Assurance TripleTred, Pirelli P7 and BFG A/T are all all-season tires. I have yet to see an A/S tire that has winter tire approval. A/S tires have M+S printed on them, true winter tires sport a mountain logo with a snowflake in it.

With an increasing number of European countries requiring the use of winter tires instead of allowing all-season tires during snowy and icy conditions, I am not surprised at Michelin developing a product that fulfills the winter requirements while offering year-round use.

The Cross Climate has winter approval and is thus rated as a snow tire, while apparently also meeting the performane requirements of a summer tire. Whether and under which conditions it's really superior to an all-season or equal to a conventional winter and summer tire remains to be seen.

It has the 3-peak-mountain-snowflake, so it's a legal snow tire with presumed summer manners. That'd go good in quebec, too, I bet, where they legally have to run winter tires.

Thanks for that explanation. I am surprised that so many people in Europe would use summer tires in winter. I would not do that even here in Texas.

Cooper recently also released a tire that is an all-season but also has the mountain/snowflake logo.

The Cooper tire is a light truck tire, though:
http://us.coopertire.com/Tires/Light-Truck/Discoverer-A-TW.aspx

Since we don't get enough winter to justify snow tires in my area, but we still can large snows, an all-season tire with a winter rating would be appealing to me.

I use winter performance as one of my main criteria when selecting tires.

The Hankook Optimo 4S actually does have the severe snow rating. You can see the mountain/snowflake on this page if you look closely at the photo.

I beg your pardon, for Hankook 4S is all-weather tire, with RAC approved stamping on the side of the wall (winter/ice approved).

I'm currently running a set on my fit.

I beg your pardon. I looked at the Hankook website where they call it an A/S tire and I did not see any mention of RAC approval anywhere. I'll take your word for it that it's on the tire. I did not intend to missguide or to offend anyone.

You are holding out on us by not telling us how that tire performs.
