Michelin ALPIN 5 features

3PMSF The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.

Tyre details:

The Michelin Alpin 5 is the fifth generation of Michelin's famous Alpin winter tyre series. This model is the successor to the Michelin Alpin A4. The aim of this latest version of the "alpine" tyre is to offer drivers optimal safety in any conditions found in winter on European roads. The tyre has been in development for 4 years and features a sharp, directional tread pattern with deep grooves and innovative blocks, elements that ensure excellent performance on snow, ice and wet surfaces.

They quickly and effectively disperse snow, water and slush, thus guaranteeing optimal grip, which effectively protects against aquaplaning, for example (loss of grip on wet roads). The dense arrangement of blades on the surface of the Michelin Alpin 5 creates a so-called "claw effect", which gives the tyre optimal tractionon snow and accurate steerability. The rubber compound used to make the tyre obviously plays an important role. This model is made from a rubber compound containing sunflower oil and silica (Helio Compound 4G). The use of this material means that the tyre retains its flexibility even at very low temperatures and this is another element that improves grip whilst driving.

Michelin is a premium tyre manufacturer that is very popular all over the world. The group owns brands including: BFGoodrich, Kleber, Kormoran, Riken and Tiger. Most of us think of the company's famous mascot, Bibendum or the Michelin Man, who has been the face of the French brand for many years. Michelin&Co. was founded in 1889, but the real start of the company was when the cousins of the founders of the Michelin brand opened a production plant producing various rubber products in 1932 in Clermont-Ferrand. 1889 (officially the year when Michelin was founded) is when the brothers Edouard and Andre took over the plant. One of the earliest major successes for the brand was the creation of the detachable pneumatic tyre. This and many other later successes mean that it is now one of the largest and best tyre manufacturers in the world.

    Michelin Alpin 5 worked perfectly during the winter season. Driving in difficult conditions was scary and great tyres worked well in both dry and ice / snow. A slight increase in fuel efficiency, acceptable noise level in terms of safety and comfort that we feel while traveling. I highly recommend these tyres. If I could have more time to review the decision on the choice of tyres, undoubtedly the choice would be Michelin Alpin5. Excellent product.

    Very good tyre. Great performance in snow, you can easily control drifts and there are no problems with braking. Michelin Alpin 5 has fantastic wet grip, but I cannot tell much about dry conditions, because I do not use winter tyres on dry tarmac. After 1500 miles the treadwear is minor and the tread itself is in good condition. If after 2-3 years the tyre will be as good as it is now I will buy it once again or any other Michelin.

    Great tyres, significantly better than its predecessors. Perfect in every weather conditions. There was no real snow in winter so I cannot tell how they perform on snow, however I was drivinf while snowing and they were brilliant. The biggest advantage of Michelin Alpin 5 compared to the A4 is the behaviour on the wet. Both breaking and driving in turns is like driving on dry surface.I recomment these outstanding tyres.

    Superb tyres in every detail, the best I have ever had, and I had plenty. I did 30000 miles in one season and i am doing 100000 miles per year. I am driving BMW 5 E60 and the treadwear is not higher than 35% so I recommend them. Michelin Alpin 5 are very quiet (unlike other Michelins). Weather conditions are not significant for this tyre, because I feel confident in every weather.

    All previous winter tyres that I had were Goodyears, so buying Michelin Alpin 5 I risked, but it was worth it. The tyres are quieter from the summer ones, and in British winter in dry, wet or snow surface they perform as good. The treadwear is minor, after doing 15000 miles the tread wear was about 5%. I do recommend these tyres.
