Much better than I could have imagined!

By Kuga

These got really tested in a thick blizzard on boxing day in Sheffield. I gradually tested higher braking speeds on the hills, even crossing over the deep snow 'ruts' that get carved out by cars on the M1, and had no problems. In fact, I could REALLY feel the tread biting in to the road surface, and meant I could travel with much more confidence, a faster average speed than those around me if I wanted and importantly I felt SAFE. My dad followed behind in summer tyres and was nearly hitting cars coming down banks, and took him half an hour longer to get home because of grip and braking. Also works fantastic in wet cornering.

Good in dry conditions, not so good in snow on a big car

The Alpin 5 are good tires when driving on either dry, wet or icy surface. They are very quiet and comfortable. In snow they are not what i would expect from Michelin, i drive a Mercedes and the car would struggle taking off and it didnt handle very well in turns, the car would push forward instead of turning. I am going to my dealer and changing them to get Michelin X Ice, they can take whatever you throw at them.

Tread pattern

Depending on the fitment the tread pattern can be Asymmetrical or Directional.

Why do you use both Asymmetrical and Directional tread patterns?

Indeed the new MICHELIN PILOT ALPIN has two different tread patterns. The reason is that we worked simultaneously in two parallel ways: one is made in collaboration with Porsche, the second one in a more common way. The two solutions have succeeded to achieve the desired result. Both of tread patterns respond perfectly to the “ridge-n-flex” philosophy and use the same elements but in a slightly different way.

Traditionally the asymmetric pattern is seen as the pattern for better handling. So what about handling with the PA4 Directional pattern version?

Indeed the asymmetric tread pattern is a solution for better handling, but not the only one. As you know the tyre is a system of many elements. By combining them in different ways, you can get great handling with both asymmetric or directional. The good example is our new PILOT ALPIN directional tyre approved by Porsche for the new 911 and Boxster.

Does it mean that Directional MICHELIN Pilot Alpin is only for Porsche?

No, not only.

Indeed it seems like this, as we have started with Porsche sizes. We are free to design more directional sizes for any other vehicles to meet their requirements. Even today these sizes exist in two versions V/W (Porsche marked and without special marking).
