    I have used the tyres mostly in the countryside in dry, wet and snow conditions. Good confident feel when cornering in wet conditions and very impressed with the grip in the snow in both overall traction and braking capabilities.

    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!

Product description

Michelin ALPIN 5 225/45 R17 91 V RUN ON FLAT FR, FSL

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.

The Michelin ALPIN 5 tyre in size 225/45 R17 91 V, according to the manufacturer's information, has the following drivability qualities:

  • F
  • B
  • 68 dB
F B 68 dB

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.

Noise

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.
