    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

Michelin ALPIN 5 features

Tyre details:

The Michelin Alpin 5 is the fifth generation of Michelin's famous Alpin winter tyre series. This model is the successor to the Michelin Alpin A4. The aim of this latest version of the "alpine" tyre is to offer drivers optimal safety in any conditions found in winter on European roads. The tyre has been in development for 4 years and features a sharp, directional tread pattern with deep grooves and innovative blocks, elements that ensure excellent performance on snow, ice and wet surfaces.

They quickly and effectively disperse snow, water and slush, thus guaranteeing optimal grip, which effectively protects against aquaplaning, for example (loss of grip on wet roads). The dense arrangement of blades on the surface of the Michelin Alpin 5 creates a so-called "claw effect", which gives the tyre optimal tractionon snow and accurate steerability. The rubber compound used to make the tyre obviously plays an important role. This model is made from a rubber compound containing sunflower oil and silica (Helio Compound 4G). The use of this material means that the tyre retains its flexibility even at very low temperatures and this is another element that improves grip whilst driving.

Michelin is a premium tyre manufacturer that is very popular all over the world. The group owns brands including: BFGoodrich, Kleber, Kormoran, Riken and Tiger. Most of us think of the company's famous mascot, Bibendum or the Michelin Man, who has been the face of the French brand for many years. Michelin&Co. was founded in 1889, but the real start of the company was when the cousins of the founders of the Michelin brand opened a production plant producing various rubber products in 1932 in Clermont-Ferrand. 1889 (officially the year when Michelin was founded) is when the brothers Edouard and Andre took over the plant. One of the earliest major successes for the brand was the creation of the detachable pneumatic tyre. This and many other later successes mean that it is now one of the largest and best tyre manufacturers in the world.
