Michelin ALPIN A3 features

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.

Designed for city cars, MPVs and family cars. MICHELIN FULL ACTIVE TREAD The Full Active Tread improves traction, braking and stability in the most demanding conditions. Helio Compound + An innovative rubber mixture that improves grip and braking force, even on wet and icy roads. It helps you to drive in complete safety, in all weathers. MICHELIN EXPERTISE The new MICHELIN Alpin tyre is the most economical winter tyre; it gives you 35% more mileage than the market average. It benefits from all MICHELIN’s know-how in terms of rubber mixtures and tyre construction. ENERGY EFFICIENCY The presence of the GREEN X marking on the wall of a MICHELIN tyre is the guarantee of one of the best energy efficiency levels on the market. You reduce your fuel consumption and your CO2 emissions while benefiting from MICHELIN performances in terms of life span and safety. The MICHELIN Alpin delivers unrivaled performance in terms of grip, tread life and energy efficiency in all winter driving conditions, through rain, ice or snow. From a practical standpoint, the tire’s grip enables drivers to get moving 10% faster* than its predecessor and brake 5% shorter**, while it’s longer tread life means that the MICHELIN Alpin allows motorists to drive farther – up to one winter longer – than its leading major-brand competitors***. In addition to these two performance features, the new tire is also more fuel-efficient. Michelin’s latest winter car tire is a good illustration of the Group’s strategy, which is never to sacrifice one performance feature for another. This means improving performance in several different areas simultaneously, and therein lies the technical problem that Michelin has resolved. To achieve this performance balance, the new MICHELIN Alpin integrates advanced technologies, some of them derived from winter tires developed for the severe winter road conditions of the world’s northernmost regions. These “nordic” tires, like the MICHELIN X-ICE North introduced in 2009, enable drivers to take to the road even in the harshest winter driving conditions, on ice or snow – whether deep or freshly fallen, tightly packed or melting – and in temperatures ranging from 0° to -60° C. This technology transfer benefits motorists driving on the new MICHELIN Alpin tires, enabling them to remain in control of their vehicle at all times and vastly enhancing their confidence at the wheel. *Average performance on icy or snow-covered surfaces. Tests performed in 2010 by independent technical services firm TÜV SÜD Automotive on size 195/65 R15 T and 205/55 R16 H tires. **Average performance on wet, icy or snow-covered surfaces. *Tests performed in 2010 by independent technical services firm TÜV SÜD Automotive on size 195/65 R15 T and 205/55 R16 H tires; other tests conducted in-house. ***The MICHELIN Alpin A4 can be driven 35% farther on average than its main competitors. Tests performed in 2010 by independent technical services firm TÜV SÜD Automotive on size 195/65 R15 T and 205/55 R16 H tires. Safety is indeed a top priority for motorists when choosing their winter tires. According to a survey of more than 2,500 drivers in Germany, Russia and Sweden conducted by TNS Sofres*, safety is the most important purchase criterion, ranked first by 34% of participants. The same survey revealed that tread life is the second most important criterion when buying tires, chosen by 20% of respondents. These results clearly show that motorists want enhanced safety but at no additional expense. In 2008, TNS Sofres had already conducted a survey of a similar panel of motorists that helped to classify their winter worries and concerns**. In Germany and Sweden, for example, motorists are afraid of melting snow, since this layer of slush often hides icy patches. Russians, for their part, feel that compact snow and ice are the two most dangerous winter road hazards. Winter is evidently the most complicated season for drivers as conditions are varied, difficult and unstable. Roads may be dry or wet and covered with water, snow, ice or slush. Moreover, temperatures may be frigid or mild, and all of these conditions can change very quickly. Clearly, grip is the key issue. As the sole point of contact between the vehicle and the road, tires – and only tires – can provide a solution to these problems. And that’s just what the new MICHELIN Alpin does. But rather than just enhancing safety, Michelin tires uncompromisingly deliver across-the-board performance. Superior grip is combined with extended mileage and improved fuel efficiency, a guarantee that is backed by the GREEN X marking on the tire’s sidewalls. *Source: 2009 TNS Sofres study of 2,500 German, Swedish and Russian drivers. **2008 survey conducted by TNS Sofres of more than 2,200 motorists in Germany, Sweden and Russia. A dynamic tread and sunflower oil: the technical secrets behind the new MICHELIN Alpin In order for the fourth-generation MICHELIN Alpin to deliver unrivaled safety performance while also enabling cost-savings through longer tread life and low fuel consumption, Michelin developed an integrated solution based on two technological achievements. First, Michelin made adjustments in the tread developed in 2009 for the MICHELIN X-ICE North. Called Full Active Tread, the new tread features five distinct technical solutions. This part of the tire, which is in contact with the road, is designed to meet one simple objective: every square millimeter of the contact patch must actively help to deliver superior grip. As the wheel turns, the tire simultaneously adheres to wet asphalt, grips the ice, evacuates wet snow and provides enhanced stability thanks to its rigid tread blocks. Second, Michelin also developed a special rubber compound containing sunflower oil – called Helio Compound+ – that not only enhances grip on winter roads but also helps to increase mileage and ensure low fuel consumption.

    A little bit disappointed ... Much better than some cormorants and Debica - so unfortunately I bought the car - but after buying A3'm not impressed - in comparison to the other reviews. On wet and dry without frost is good, perhaps even very good - but not too warm. above 10 degrees, a little swim (regularly checking the pressure). the dry conditions and cold is equally good - previous slip when braking awful - they do not block the wheels even stronger press brake (I do not have abs) is also a useful ;). snow this winter was not much, but as I fell - now in the middle of March - or the snow is strange - so wet and slippery, or tyres not so much. slip up pissed off, but rather a quiet ride (turn 90 degrees, almost square, the road white with a bit of wet compacted snow on the meter 25 km / h (horror of horrors!) and runs to the front of my car - I was hoping for something better) I did not notice that resulted in increased fuel consumption. depending on temperature and driving style average of 4.7 liters per 100, as it insisted it was 4.37, well almost like summer. I did not check on the ice grip. on warmer days begin to make noise. Recently I was changing the oil on your car on a lift and thoroughly obejżałem wear - nothing like you can see, the use of rather small. For next winter unless buy 2 others on trial. and I start for my summer tęsnić bridgestone'ami. comfort and precision.

    I will try to write objectively as possible! At the Michelin Alpin workout already 6 - 7 seasons and does not want other tyres!. Previously, these were the first Michelin Alpin from which I was 100% satisfied. It is true that as the tread wears down, they discover new lamellar August, thanks so nearly to the end of the tyre retains its properties when it comes to starting and stopping the vehicle. Speaking to the end I mean height of about 2 mm tread (tread height of this car I sold the five winter seasons Use both in the city as well as from the mountains). It is known that at the height of about 2 mm tread can not expect that the discharge of water or slush will be the same as for a new tyre! Even hockey fared not bad. Following up, changed my car for the same model only three years younger. Being satisfied with the old Michelin Alpin, purchased new Michelin Alpin A3. Last winter, ie 2006/07 I made them almost 20,000 km. Wear almost not see. Behave the same way as its predecessor, even better. Super drainage, quiet, comfortable, great traction, starting on snow, ice braking. etc. .. I recommend it with a clear conscience, and as summer is Goodyear Excellence. Is very similar, except that the one for summer and one for winter. Regards ...

    Other winter tyres not buy. I Fulda (tragedia!), Klebery, Goodyeary 7 (floated like a boat on the lake) in the official car I have now Debica Frigo (size 185, I'm afraid at every turn). If someone says that Frigo less slipping on the snow it can be a subjective feeling of an internal due respect to your wallet ... Snow is never the same on the road - as it rains and when it arrives it is either a compacted or melted ... How come so you can argue that they are worse than Michelin Frigo? To compare this would have to be at the same time side by side to drive the same car at two different sets of tyres! I note that the tyres should be seen in one size - you can not compare tyres of different brands of various widths so writing it in another car are better Frigo is pointless unless the tyres are the same size ... I bought a 195/60 instead of 185/65 to a private car for the winter because I had a great deal of confidence that even with a larger width Alpin3 cope in winter. I have given great advice. I recommend with a clear conscience! I do not like the tyres are perhaps the only ones who insisted that the Michelin company is overrated ... Anyway: adac.de visit and check it out there is written by specialists for this tyre. Yours!

    Very good tyres, I'm currently using summer tyres Michelin energy saver (now the fourth season, the course of about 50 thousand.) And winter Michelin Alpin3 (now would be a third season, the course of about 20 thousand.). Both sets purchased new in Oponeo.co.uk. I have spent a couple of sets, often in a "pair bonded" - there is nothing worse than a set of 2 +2! In my opinion, Michelin tyres for summer and winter (of course, appropriate for the season) is the best choice. Provide adequate traction when driving on dry, wet and slippery conditions, cornering grip and optimum braking. Of course, all within the limits of the laws of physics, can never keep a speeding car on a sharp turn, or keep it in place. Michelin recommend to anyone who knows what a car is and respects the presence of other road users, and does not put faith in unreliable electronics. I recommend setting the other car on bricks (producer indifferent).

    I bought these tyres for wpływen opinion of the seriwsu; winter last year in Mazovia was feeble, and in winter conditions only drove on them for several days in the mountains - but then I thought about it, that maybe I was expecting something more after them ... This winter, as everyone can see, and now firmly fixed in the last year just felt - I think tyres are hard medium, and are probably the biggest plus is that they are very quiet, and in the second car I Debica Frigo, and in my travels on them better, especially in the snow - this is not yet fully rozjeżdżonym - my wife said she Michelinki more than Debica slide - and I'm talking mostly about driving in the snow, no, and finally write that at last the tyres on also heard guys talk on on the "Michaels" - more or less content was similar to my opinion, just a little more vulgar manner expressed :)
