The Michelin Alpin 5 Zero Pressure is a run flat tyre winter tyre with a high performance level on dry, wet and snow covered road surfaces. The Alpin 5 Zero Pressure features technologies designed by Michelin to allow the driver to continue for a short distance once the tyre has been punctured or the tyre pressure has dropped.
Features a directional tread pattern, the Alpin 5 Zero Pressure has an increased number of tread blocks and more sipes lead to greater traction on the snow. Created with the Helio Compound 4G – which contains sunflower oil – the tyre is able to maintain flexibility to deliver efficient performance in chilly winter environments.
Thanks to the lateral grooves designed in the Alpin 5 Zero Pressure, there is more resistance to aquaplaning though the swift dispersal of water from the tyres grooves.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
