Tyre details: The Michelin PILOT ALPIN PA4 is a premium-range tyre designed for sports cars and high-performance limousines. It offers guaranteed driving safety in challenging winter conditions. The tyre features an asymmetric tread consisting of two separate parts for outstanding drivability on both dry and wet roads.
The tyre's designers paid particular attention to braking distances, which are a full 3 metres shorter on wet roads and 4 metres shorter on snow with the Michelin PILOT ALPIN PA4 than with winter tyres marketed by other manufacturers in the same segment. The specially profiled tread guarantees improved traction and driving stability, not only on straight roads but also when going round corners or performing sudden manoeuvres. The aggressive tread pattern with an increased density of blades maintains optimum grip regardless of the weather. The tyre's directional precision is improved by StabiliGrip technology, with three-dimensional blades set at variable angles to rapidly break through the layer of water and dry the tread. The tyre is manufactured on the basis of a Helio Compound with added silica and sunflower oil. This makes the Michelin PILOT ALPIN PA4 more flexible at lower temperatures and ensures that the tyre responds faster to driver movements. The tyre is the ideal solution for drivers who place emphasis not only on maximum performance and outstanding handling on a wide variety of road surfaces, but also on driving safety and reliability.
