Designed to take on rough winter driving conditions, the Michelin Latitude Alpin HP has many nice features for drivers of sport SUV’s and pickups.
When you take a quick look at the tire you will notice the directional tread pattern, which is well suited for increased traction on snow and ice. The tread compound has been made more flexible so that you continue to have increased traction in much colder temperatures.
Unique circumferential bridges run in between the independent tread blocks, which provide much greater handling and stability regardless of road conditions.
The Michelin Latitude Alpin HP Tire has dense siping and lateral grooves which aid in braking on wet or slush covered roads. You will be impressed with the control that the Alpin HP gives you in wet weather, but it also performs well on cold surfaces in winter weather.
Strong twin steel belts further support the tire and enable good handling. The twin belts are reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon which further improves handling of the tire. In fact the Alpin HP handles very well even at high speeds and remains durable throughout its life.
Latitude Alpin HP winter tires have the snowflake symbol which indicates that the tire meets the industry’s severe snow service requirements.
Overall, the Michelin Latitude Alpin HP is a very good high performance winter tire. Traction on all types of surfaces is excellent. It rides nicely and Michelin stands behind the tire with a 25,000 tread warranty, which is rare for this type of winter tire.
