Product description & features
The Michelin Alpin 6 is a winter tyre developed to provide excellent grip on snow - when new and when worn.
Michelin have designed the Alpin 6 to keep motorists mobile in all weather and road conditions. The Michelin Alpin 6 tread features a 'snow chamber' at the base of the grooves, this helps to retain snow and there for improve the traction and grip when driving in snowy conditions.
A 'Traction Booster' tread compound has been used in the construction of the Alpin 6 - with a specially developed blend. This keeps the tyre flexible in freezing conditions - allowing the tyre to contour to the surface of the road and improve grip.
What is an All Season tyre?
Designed to cope with all sorts of conditions - good performance delivered throughout the year. Moderate natural rubber content to stop the tyre hardening in temperatures below 0 degrees Celsius – enhancing grip. Designed with moderate tread depths that have been engineered to help deliver a longer tread life than many summer tyres
How can I tell an All Season tyre performs in winter weather?
This tyre features the EU sanctioned 3PMSF marking - Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake: This accolade was introduced to be an easily recognisable symbol which displays that the tyre has passed rigourous tests to prove it is suitable for driving in winter weather. It confirms the winter suitability of a tyre.
Are All Season tyres suitable for the UK?
Given that the UK suffers from moderate and interchangeable winter conditions - with severe ice and snow becoming uncommon for much of the country - this makes all season tyres a very good choice for our roads. As they are able to cope with these conditions very well.
Do I need to swap my tyres throughout the year?
Given the nature of all season tyres, which can perform equally well in the summer months and the winter months, the need to replace tyres depending on the seasons is not required when all season tyres are fitted.
