The GoodYear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 and Michelin CrossClimate 2 are two top-tier all-round tyres by leading manufacturers GoodYear and Michelin, respectively. These tyres are the successors of the previous models Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 and Michelin CrossClimate.


Test results put the Michelin CrossClimate 2 slightly ahead with a rating of 96% compared to the 92% for the GoodYear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3. Boasting top positions in several tyre tests, the Michelin tyre outperforms in snow handling, traction and braking, with excellent dry braking, and great comfort despite some average wet handling.


The GoodYear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3, while averaging a bit lower in the overall rating, still performs impressively in its own right. It particularly stands out with its excellent dry and wet handling, and good snow performance, with the best comfort on test. It has some strengths in areas where Michelin falls short, such as its excellent aquaplaning resistance, top scores for comfort, and very well balanced profile that offers short wet braking distances. However, it does have average dry braking which might be a drawback for some drivers.


The CrossClimate 2 has attained the first position in the Autobild and Autoklub tests, with praise for its snow handling and dry braking capabilities. On the other hand, the Gen-3 achieves a solid third position in these tests, with the Autobild test emphasizing its strong dry handling and snow braking abilities, despite its lower rolling resistance.


In conclusion, while both tyres excel in different areas, the Michelin CrossClimate 2 has a slight edge in most tests due to its outstanding snow and dry performance. However, the GoodYear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 is also a strong contender boasting superior comfort and well-balanced handling qualities across different terrains. Selecting between these tyres would come down to a driver's personal preference and specific driving conditions.
