Introduced earlier this year, the CrossClimate+ tyres bring the benefits of Michelin’s previous CrossClimate range, which was marked out as the first winter-certified summer tyre, adding improved through-life performance in snow.

Now South Western Ambulance Service is to use them across its fleet of 200 Skoda Octavia rapid response vehicles.

Kevin Bartholomew, fleet operations manager, explained: “We only take vehicles off the road for safety inspections or maintenance and the six-week transition period previously required to swap our summer and winter tyres twice a year was incredibly inconvenient. With CrossClimate+, we keep the same tyres on the Skodas year-round, saving time and money.”
