Default Very happy with the Michelin all season tires

I have 20" wheels and it comes with Michelin pilot sport AS 3 all seasons. We had over 10" snow in the last few days here in Vancouver. The car performed extremely well with the tires, on par with my X6 with winter Pirelli Ice & Snow, stopping distance is also fantastic.

Heard AS3+ has 30% better performance for winter but it doesn't have the size for it.

This is good to know. I think tire manufacturers are getting better with all seasons. Thanks for the feedback.

Too bad that you can only get pirellis on the 21”s right now

Apologies if this is a little off topic, but given that your Cayenne has seen snow I was wondering whether you tried any of the 4 off-road programs to learn which, if any, works best in snow? None is labeled “snow,” and I for one haven’t got a clue if Mud, Gravel, Sand, Rocks - or none of the above - should be engaged for the white stuff. Any insights you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

just standard mode and it handles snow very well, didn’t feel traction loss.

I guess the standard mode can deal with snow enough so no need for dedicated snow mode.
