Alot of people on this forum seem to say that Michelin Cross Climate tyres are the ones to go for. But no-one appears to have bought them yet so no reviews have so far been posted.

Anything which reduces the high levels of cabin noise and vibration is to be welcomed.
The rock hard Bridgestone Turanzas supplied on my CX-3 still have plenty of tread after 10,500 miles, but when the time comes I will be fitting Michelin Cross Climates and will report my findings.

Yeah CrossClimate seem to be highest rated, followed by Goodyear 4vector 2nd gen.

My CX-3 went at 31k and still had more than 5mm all round on the original tyres

Hi

Im new to this forum, I expect to get my CX-3 on Monday (fingers crossed) but I have used the Michelin Cross Climate on my last cars - Nissan Qashqai's and they are brilliant - so good if I'm not happy with the tyres that come on the CX-3 I will be buying the Cross Climate's

One concern though, I don't think they are especially quiet tyres, they seemed to add a bit of road noise to my qashqais - only very slight but we think we noticed it.

That said very much worth it, huge improvement in grip in bad weather / rain / light snow and it changed completely the behaviour if you hit a puddle with one tyre, on stock tyres it would pull the car towards the puddle, that's all but gone with the cross climate.

The absolute only negatives is that they don't come as stock, they are quite expensive (I think they were the most expensive for the Qashqai on 19" rims), and whist the garage I got it from didn't object directly they wouldn't help me with them and every time I said about them they tried to steer me away from them - no idea why and they wouldn't be drawn on it (I think its money to be honest)

The Toyo's as standard seem fine to me, some people are also recommending Falkens.

My Toyo Proxes seem fine to me, reasonably quiet too. But haven't been off-roading yet to check grip levels yet!!!!
