    I have fitted just two new Michelin ALPIN 5 on the one axel. I couldn't decide, because there were no reviews, but finally I have decided to buy them. I want to add that within last 7 years I had used only Michelin Alpin 3. Tyres are absolutely fantastic. The rubber is so soft, that I could belive how light were they. My fitter have confirmed that those tyres are the softer tyres that he has ever fitted. The grip on the snow is fantastic, tyres stick to the road. The same thing on the dry road. Very hard break off the grip. Micheli ALPIN 5 are also one of the quitest tyres I have ever used! No unnecessary noise. I have using them only two weeks now, but believe me, I am delighted. Now it is difficult to say something about tread wear. Hopefully it will be just like with the Alpine 3, which I was using for last 6 seasons and the tread still looks fine. Maybe the reason is that the winter season is so short. I fully recommend these tyres to every user. Michelin proved one more time, that is one of the best brands!

    I am very happy with these tyres. I never felt confident cornering with my old tyres especially in the wet and they lost traction when pulling off in the wet and always got stuck in the snow. These tyres are the total opposite, they corner very well and have lots of traction in the dry as well as in the wet. I find the stopping distance is very similar in the dry but reduced in the wet and far superior in the snow or frost. Last winter I helped pushed two cars with a couple of other people and then got in my car and drove through 6-7 inches of snow without any issue, I do not think they could believe it. I researched cold weather tyres and decided on these and I have been so happy with them. I thought it was a gimmick to have cold weather tyres but I can assure you it make a big difference.

    I was wondering for a quite long time, what tyres should I choose. First I have checked Continental, but they did not have my size (850), so I have decided on Michelin ALPIN 5. I was not sure, did I made a correct decision, due to lack of reviews and test resulst (except for one ADAC). I do not know why there is still Alpine 4 but well... It is hard to write the opinion after first drive, but I did the first few hundred miles and ..... the drive is stable and really quiet (I stepped up to the 93 mph and the noise was bearly heard). What is the most important: the fuel efficiency is fantastic, amazing SURPRISE. I hope that my review will help someone, due to lack of reviews. I am fully recommend Michelin ALPIN 5. :) It is hard to have an opinion about the grip on snow or wet surfaces yet.

    So far I am very satisfied with Michelin ALPIN 5. It is a very good tyre. Great grip on the snow and wet surfaces. It is very easy to control the slides and a very good brakes. Tire despite its design and construction of the tread is not surprising on the corners. On the wet surfaces without any doubts, clearly implied a range of border. On the dry surfaceI do not have much expieriance, because I try not to ude winter tyres on the asphalt. After about 1200 miles, you can not see the tread wear and sipes are still in very good condition. We will see how does it looks after about 2-3 years and if I confirm the high tread life and the good grip on the snow, I will buy another Michelin ALPIN 5. Fully recommend these tyres to all users.

    I am an agressive type of the driver in the city, on the highway (up to 124 mph) and on winding snowy roads in the Scottish Mountains. In every single condition Michelin ALPIN 5 had an outstanding traction. During the summer season I drove on the budget tyes and the differance was enormous. Today, despite the difficult conditions on the road, I am not able to put the car in the controlled slip. Michelin ALPIN 5 is a poor tyre ... to drift :P. I feel very safe and comfortable driving on those tyres. I was not afraid to enter into a snowbank in the mountains and I was annoyed of SUVs which were driving 19 mph with a snow chains, when I had a great grip on snow in my coupe, with a regular winter tyres with the temperature below -14*C

Product description

Michelin ALPIN 5 205/55 R16 91 H RUN ON FLAT

The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.

Technology description: Michelin ALPIN 5 is a response to the needs of all drivers who expect their winter tyres to provide excellent performance regardless of the weather and driving safety in any conditions.

The model is equipped with a directional tread pattern which ensures the appropriate traction on snow and increased aquaplaning resistance. With its optimised structure, the tyre also offers improved driving precision. The sipes deployed at the extreme depths of the tread blocks provide maximum performance parameters for the whole of the tyre’s lifespan. This is also supported by the distribution of pressures acting against the surface of the ALPIN 5, so the tread wears uniformly and slowly.

The tyre was designed using an innovative rubber compound ensuring good performance parameters in low temperatures. With this, the ALPIN 5 provides better grip on snowy and wet surfaces and also reduces fuel consumption. The Helio Compound 4G rubber mixture contains sunflower oil and silica. Thanks to its flexibility, the tread adheres to the road with its maximum area no matter the weather. As a result, the grip and stability while driving always remains optimum.

The combination of high-quality components with the optimised tread pattern improves the acoustic comfort inside and outside of the vehicle. Noise generated during operation are effectively dampened so the driver and passengers may enjoy quiet inside the vehicle.

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.


Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
