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 snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol.

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.
