The Michelin PILOT ALPIN PA4 is a premium-range winter tyre designed for sports cars. Its phenomenal performance and exceptional responsiveness make it the ideal choice for drivers who prefer an aggressive driving style. The tyre's flexibility and low rolling resistance make it possible to unlock the full potential of any engine. The asymmetric tread, which maintains a superb level of grip when driving on wet and snowy roads or when going round corners, offers guaranteed safety. The specially designed tread grooves allow the rapid and effective evacuation of water and slush from under the wheels, preventing aquaplaning. The tyres are also notable for their high level of comfort thanks to reduced tyre noise and vibration.
