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.
The Michelin Alpin A4 performs exceptionally well on ice, snow and in rain. It has been designed for difficult and variable winter weather conditions. Its directional tread pattern gives an optimal performance on wet surfaces by quickly dispersing water from under the tyre and minimising the risk of aquaplaning.
The tyre uses Full Active Tread technology, which improves braking performance, traction and driving stability on different types of surfaces. The innovative rubber compound used in its construction gives a safer driving experience whatever the weather, with improved grip and reduced braking distances, even on snowy and icy surfaces. The designers have ensured an optimal distribution of forces within the tyre. The tread therefore wears evenly and slowly, which means that the driver can enjoy the tyre's full range of specifications for its entire lifetime. The rubber compound used as the base for creating the model is noted for its lightness and very high strength, making the tyre resistant to mechanical damage and extending its service life. Lower rolling resistance thanks to the reduced weight of the tyre has helped limit fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The Michelin Alpin A4 is therefore an environmentally friendly and economical tyre to run. The tyre features the GREEN X logo on its side as a guarantee of its energy efficiency.
