The Michelin Pilot Alpin 5 is a sporty directional tire for high-performance passenger vehicles, designed for intensive use during the coldest months of the year. They feature steering stability in snow, excellent maneuverability in dry conditions, and effective braking on wet asphalt, as well as ride comfort and optimum fuel consumption. New for the Winter 2017/18 season.
The Michelin Pilot Alpin PA5 studless tires replace the 2011 Pilot Alpin PA4. The asymmetric pattern of its predecessor was replaced by an asymmetric directional pattern - the "classics of the genre" for winter tires. This has improved the fifth-generation model's traction in wet and snowy conditions.
Michelin Pilot Alpin 5 tread design helps you confidently overcome snowy stretches of road, which is aided by the tire's negative profile, represented by numerous wide drainage grooves.
The Pilot Alpin 5's tread beads are dotted with a new type of lamellas, says TireWheelGuide's technical specialist. Their unique shape helps to reduce the deformation of blocks during high-speed driving, which, in turn, positively affects the vehicle's handling on winter surfaces.
