Michelin winter tyres optimise performance in low temperatures, enhance steering precision and have greater traction on the snow. The Michelin Alpin 5 is a winter tyre with a high performance level on dry, wet and snow covered road surfaces. Michelin's winter tyre features a new directional tread pattern. An increased number of tread blocks and more sipes lead to greater traction on the snow. Greater resistance to aquaplaning is achieved thanks to the design of the lateral grooves which disperse water from the path of the tyre quickly.
