Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2

The Pilot Alpin PA2 is Michelin's Performance Winter tire developed to meet the needs of driving enthusiasts by combining dry road performance, foul weather traction & cold-weather conditions.

The Pilot Alpin PA2 molds a tread rubber compound that remains flexible at lower temperatures for greater grip, into a high-contact, speed rating specific tread design (V-speed rated tires feature a directional, 5-rib independent block tread design while H-speed rated tires feature a 6-rib version). The tread blocks feature Michelin's "Bi-Directional Sipes System" technology that enhances performance on wet, snow-packed & icy roads. On the inside, the Pilot Alpin PA2 features twin steel belts that are reinforced by Michelin's size-optimized BAZ technology where nylon cord is Banded At Zero degrees to the direction of travel. The Pilot Alpin PA2 incorporates Michelin's Radial XSE Technology (which consists of a silica-enhanced Smart Tread Compound, Optimized Casing Shape & Optimized Mass Distribution) to enhance the Pilot Alpin PA2's performance & wear.

The Pilot Alpin PA2 winter radials meet the industry's severe snow service requirements & are branded with the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol. They feature blackwall styling & are available in 45- 50-, 55-, 60- & 65-series, H- & V-speed rated sizes for 15" to 18" wheel diameters.

Vehicles should always be equipped with equivalent tires at all wheel positions. These winter tires, due to their exceptional snow & ice traction provided by their unique tread compounds, must be used in sets of four to help ensure proper vehicle control. However, Pilot Alpin PA2 tires can be mixed with original Pilot Alpin tires of the same size & speed rating if they are installed in like pairs on the same axle. It is suggested that the newer tires be installed on the rear axle.
