Product description

A winter tyre for city cars, hatchbacks, MPVs and family saloons, the Michelin Alpin 4 tyre offers grip, longevity and energy efficiency.

Safety. The Michelin Alpin 4 enhances the performances of its predecessor: 10% more grip on starting* and braking distances 5% shorter*. These results are due to a larger contact surfaces, the caterpillar effect due to the large number of tread motifs and high-density siping. Effective evacuation of water and slush thanks to the V-shaped tread pattern.

Longevity. According to Michelin, allows one extra winter driving**. Low fuel consumption thanks to a unique rubber compound HelioCompound+ based on sunflower oil and silica.

Handling. Good stability ensured by Stabiligrip technology, offering stiffer tread blocks.

* Compared to its predecessor on average, on snow-covered, icy or wet surfaces. Tests conducted in 2010 by TÜV SÜD Automotive on dimensions 195/65 R15T and 205/55 R16H.

** On average, the Alpin A4 does 35% more mileage than its main rivals."

What is the rezulteo score?

The rezulteo score is calculated considering three performance categories: economy, comfort and safety. When it comes to winter tyres, the performance criteria snow and ice are added. By weighting different basic performance criteria an overall score is determined. This weighting is calculated based on the tyre size category: economic, high performance or sports.
