Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 Radial Tire
For driving enthusiasts, the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 is the obvious and best choice. This winter tire delivers the crisp responses and high levels of grip you'd expect from a summer tire, while being able to face the hard conditions of winter. A new silica-based rubber compound shortens stopping distances when compared to the previous Pilot Alpin PA3, as well as increasing low-temperature flexibility. While these tires aren’t meant for deep snow and won't display the same levels of grip on snow and ice as a non-performance-oriented snow tire, they provide excellent traction and handling on both wet and dry roads (as well as in light snow and icy conditions).
The Pilot Alpin PA4 maintains a solid amount of grip overall, with excellent dry pavement stability and responsiveness while ride quality is decent. Unless you live in an area where you’ll regularly be faced with deep snow, the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 winter tire is the perfect choice for the driving enthusiast.
