Michelin Latitude Alpin
Alpin is Michelin's Light Truck/SUV Performance Winter tire
developed for the drivers of all-wheel drive crossover and
sport utility vehicles. The Latitude Alpin is designed to
combine a smooth, quiet ride and long wear with traction on
cold, wet, snow-covered and icy roads.
The Latitude Alpin features a Helio Compound (sunflower
oil-enriched compound) molded into a directional tread
design combining a continuous center rib with independent
intermediate and shoulder blocks to blend stability on dry
roads with hydroplaning resistance on wet roads and traction
in slush, snow and on ice. Bi-directional self-locking sipes
allow greater sipe density that bites into snow and ice for
sure-footed braking and traction in cold weather conditions.
Michelin Stabiligrip technology featuring variable geometry
sipes (wavy at the tire's surface and straight at their
base) enhances handling at higher speeds. Michelin Comfort
Control Technology combines computer-optimized design and
precision manufacturing methods to reduce vibration and road
noise. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel
belts reinforced with spirally wound polyamide cord to
support the tread, while a polyester cord carcass enhances
Latitude Alpin winter tires meet the industry's severe snow
service requirements and are branded with the
Install Latitude Alpin 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.
