Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 - Winter Snow tire
  • Exceptional handling in cold weather driving conditions is provided by an asymmetric tread design and 3D Variable Thickness Sipes Technology™ (VTS™), with wide sipes on the inside providing traction in the snow and narrower sipes on the outside providing handling in dry conditions.
  • The Michelin® Primacy™ Alpin® PA3™ tires offer a 10% gain in acceleration and handling characteristics in snow as a result of more sipe edges biting into snow and ice from 3-D StabiliGrip Technology™ with its bidirectional auto blocking and variable geometry sipes.
  • 26% more of our Biting Edges™ sipe technology results in improved control in cold weather conditions, resulting in a 5% gain in snow acceleration versus previous generation tires.
  • Increased traction at low temperatures for improved braking and handling in the wet and better overall performance in the snow, all the result of the revolutionary Helio Compound™, with sunflower oil. The Primacy™ Alpin® PA3™ tire stops 5.6 feet shorter than its predecessor on wet. (Based on Michelin internal snow traction test results for Michelin® Primacy™ Alpin® PA3™ tires versus Michelin® Pilot® Alpin® PA2™ tires.)
  • Building on the fuel efficiencies of its predecessor, the Primacy™ Alpin® PA3™ tire uses even less fuel thanks to a rolling resistance that has been reduced by 7%.
  • The Helio Compound™ of Pilot® Alpin® PA3™ tires allow for stopping distances of up to 9.2 feet shorter than its predecessor on wet road surfaces. This revolutionary compound also provides increased traction in low temperatures for better overall winter performance.
  • MICHELIN® GREEN X®
  • 10% More Control in the Snow. (Based on Michelin internal snow traction test results versus the Michelin® Pilot® Alpin® PA2™ tire.)
  • Offers 10% Better Acceleration in Snow. (Based on Michelin internal snow traction test results for Michelin® Primacy™ Alpin® PA3™ tires versus Michelin® Pilot® Alpin® PA2™ tires.)
  • 5% Better Acceleration Snow. (Based on Michelin internal snow traction test results versus the Michelin® Pilot® Alpin® PA2™ tire.)
  • Get Shorter, Safer Stops. (Based on Michelin internal snow traction test results for Michelin® Primacy™ Alpin® PA3™ tires versus Michelin® Pilot® Alpin® PA2™ tires.)
  • Get More Miles for Your Money. (Comparisons based upon fuel efficiency testing between Michelin® Primacy™ Alpin® PA3™ tires versus Michelin® Pilot™ Alpin® PA2™ tires. Fuel savings are estimates based on comparative rolling resistance. Actual on-road savings may vary.)
  • Improved Traction for Better Stopping and Handling. (Based on Michelin internal snow traction test results versus the Michelin® Pilot® Alpin® PA2™ tire.)
