Michelin's X-Ice range is probably one of the most well-known names in the winter tire industry, and not without reason. For some time now, the brand has established itself as a reference, no doubt in part through the impressive effectiveness of its products. The X-Ice Snow is a good example of this.

The Finnish company Nokian is well known for its products that are able to face Nordic conditions, so why not try out it out? The all-new Hakkapeliitta R5, available in SUV or standard versions, is often considered the best in its category.

If they fit in your budget, the Hakkapeliitta R5 is probably the best choice for you if you own a big vehicle like an MDX.

The increased block stiffness and its exclusive design optimizes handling and the longevity of the tires.

It is also through the block edges and tire tread that have been cleverly designed that the tire can reduce braking distances. It is important to note that the response of the tires on the road will be particularly true on a lighter vehicle such as a compact car or a sedan.
