This is the tire that SUV owners have been waiting for, and leave it to Michelin to deliver. You bought your SUV for its appearance, size and functionality. You also spend nearly all the time on the road. So you want a tire that looks right on your vehicle, delivers excellent response and ride comfort on the highway, and provides great traction when you go off-roading. This defines the new Cross Terrain SUV. Its bold, rugged appearance is enhanced by a unique sidewall design that features DURABLACK technology. A stable, square contact patch and enhanced casing system deliver safe, confident handling. Silica tread compounds, interlocking sipes and a revolutionary tread design keep it quiet on the highway, yet provide exceptional traction in wet, snow and off-road conditions. Vivid Racing now offers a full selection of Cross Terrain SUV sizes.
