Michelin CrossClimate 2 vs Vredestein Quatrac

In this article we will be looking at independent tyre test data, and real world driver reviews of the Michelin CrossClimate 2 and the Vredestein Quatrac to find out which tyre is best for your own driving.

The good news is that both the Michelin CrossClimate 2 and Vredestein Quatrac are Premium Touring All Season tyres designed to be fitted to Passenger Cars, which means comparing the two tyres is relatively simple.

Both tyres are hugely popular in the market place with drivers, and both have been featured in independent tyre tests.

CrossClimate-2 VS Quatrac

Test Results

Independent comparison tyre tests are the best source of data to get tyre information from, and the good news is there have been seven tests which compare both tyres directly!

Out of these seven tests:

  • Michelin CrossClimate 2 finished ahead of the Vredestein Quatrac in five of the tests
  • Vredestein Quatrac finished ahead of the Michelin CrossClimate 2 in two of the tests

While it might look like the Michelin CrossClimate 2 is better than the Vredestein Quatrac purely based on the higher number of test wins, tyres are very complicated objects which means where one tyre is better than the other can be more important in real world use.

Lets look at how the two tyres compare across multiple tyre test categories.

Best Review for the Michelin CrossClimate 2
Bei 81% 235/50 R18 auf a combination of roads für 5,000 average Kilometer
Car = 2014 Infiniti Q60 AWD (aka G37 Coupe / CV36 Skyline - RWD bias ATTESA AWD) Overall, pleased with the tire as I wanted a comfortable tire with long tread life and a true "All-Season" tire for the winter months as I have not yet purchased a set of dedicated summer wheels/tires yet. Coming from previous Michelin Pilot Sport AS3+ which lasted around 52k of 45k mile rating with sometimes spirited driving, so have no reason to doubt Michelin's tread ware claims, at least on my vehicle. Handling in the dry, the AS3+ was better when taking curves/turns and activated the VDC/TCS less often,... Continue reading this review using the link below

Footnote

This page has been developed using tyre industry testing best practices. This means we are only comparing tests which have had both tyres in the same test.

Why is this important? Tyre testing is heavily affected by things like surface grip levels and surface temperature, which means you can only compare values from the same day. During a tyre test external condition changes are calculated into the overall results, but it is not possible to calculate this between tyre tests performed on different days or at different locations.

As a result you will see other tests on Tyre Reviews which feature both the Michelin CrossClimate 2 and Vredestein Quatrac, but as they weren't conducted on the same day, the results are not comparable.

Lots of other websites do this sort of tyre comparison, Tyre Reviews doesn't.
