Michelin Latitude Alpin HP
The Latitude Alpin HP is Michelin's
Performance Winter tire developed for the drivers of high
performance pickups and luxury sport utility vehicles who want to
enhance their winter driving experience. Latitude Alpin HP tires
were designed to combine responsive handling on dry, wet and
slippery winter roads.
The Latitude Alpin HP features a tread rubber compound that remains
flexible at lower temperatures for greater grip and better handling
in cold temperatures, as well as in snow and on ice. This compound
is molded into a subtle, directional tread design that features
rounded shoulders to provide predictable handling while maintaining
good traction on dry, wet and slush-covered roads. Circumferential
bridges between the independent tread blocks further enhance dry
road handling while lateral grooves and high density sipes increase
braking and control on slippery roads. The tire's structure includes
twin steel belts reinforced by Michelin's spirally wrapped nylon
Banded At Zero (BAZ) to optimize high-speed handling and durability.
Latitude Alpin HP winter tires meet the industry’s severe snow
service requirements and are branded with the
Install Latitude Alpin HP tires in sets of four only.
Vehicles should always be equipped with equivalent tires at all
wheel positions. These winter tires, due to their exceptional snow
and ice traction provided by their unique tread compounds, must be
used in sets of four to help ensure proper vehicle control.
