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 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.
