The Latitude Alpin is Michelin's Light Truck/SUV Performance Winter tire developed for the drivers of all-wheel drive crossover and sport utility vehicles. The Latitude Alpin is designed to combine a smooth, quiet ride and long wear with traction on cold, wet, snow-covered and icy roads.The Latitude Alpin features a Helio Compound (sunflower oil-enriched compound) molded into a directional tread design combining a continuous center rib with independent intermediate and shoulder blocks to blend stability on dry roads with hydroplaning resistance on wet roads and traction in slush, snow and on ice. Bi-directional self-locking sipes allow greater sipe density that bites into snow and ice for sure-footed braking and traction in cold weather conditions. Michelin Stabiligrip technology featuring variable geometry sipes (wavy at the tire's surface and straight at their base) enhances handling at higher speeds. Michelin Comfort Control Technology combines computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing methods to reduce vibration and road noise. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wound polyamide cord to support the tread, while a polyester cord casing enhances ride comfort.Latitude Alpin winter tires meet the industry's severe snow service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.Install Latitude Alpin tires in sets of four only.Vehicles should always be equipped with equivalent tires at all wheel positions. These winter tires, due to their exceptional snow and ice traction provided by their unique tread compounds, must be used in sets of four to help ensure proper vehicle control.*Specific sizes featuring Green X technology are identified as such on the Sizes tab, as well as on the tire's Specs tab.
