The’ H’ speed rated Primacy™ Alpin® PA3 ™ tire is engineered to deliver improved wet braking and controlled maneuvers in snow for your High Performance vehicle. Winter Tire.

Features and Benefits

Get Shorter Safer Stops

Increased traction at low temperature 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 1.7 meters shorter than its predecessor on wet.

Enjoy Driving With Confidence Even During The Winter

Experience a 10% gain in acceleration and handling with more biting edge in snow and ice from the StabiliGrip™ technology with its bidirectional auto blocking sipes and its variable geometry.

Get More Miles For Your Money

The same well known excellent mileage1 as its predecessor, the Primacy™ Alpin® PA3 ™ has reduced fuel consumption1 because of its lower rolling resistance (-7%)

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.

Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.

The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.

With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.

Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.

Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

Good cold / wet performance on our rear wheal drive 320D. We run these on a separate set of rims and swap back to the standard tyres in Spring. Handling is no where near as precise as with the 18 inch Michelin Pilot Sports tyres. The Alpin tyres are also narrow compared to the Pilot Sports and hard driving in dry conditions would certainly cause wear. Knowing that the car is able to handle cold / wet / snow / ice is very reassuring and though winter tyres are not cheap they are much less expensive than an accident and insurance claim.

Into my third Winter on these tyres. Wet & dry performance is excellent, much improved ride quality over summer run flats. On snow, good enough but not great they are probably more suited to FWD or 4WD drive vehicles. On RWD you might prefer something with slightly better snow performance. Overall an excellent tyre for cold/wet conditions with occasional snow. If you live in an area with very frequent snow then there are probably better options available.

A great winter tyre, which inspires real confidence whatever the British roads throw at it.

Better fuel consumption too !

Michelin – we take you further.

The vision of our founders, Edouard and André Michelin, has guided the development of the MICHELIN brand for more than 125 years: making driving as simple, safe, and comfortable as possible – first with innovative tires and wheels, followed by road maps, travel guides, and contributions toward improving traffic infrastructure. Along with this comes a strong engagement with the environment, as modern mobility must be sustainable and not detrimental to the environment.

Each year the Michelin Group produces more than 178 million tires in 68 production facilities in 17 countries, and it operates sales networks in more than 170 countries. The product offerings are many: from bicycle, passenger car, truck, motorcycle, and tractor tires, to tires for 5-ton earth- moving machines. Michelin employs 111,700 people worldwide and owns one of the oldest, most famous trademarks in the world – the legendary Michelin Man.

Targeted development: MICHELIN Total Performance

In the development of new products, Michelin faithfully pursues the concept of "MICHELIN Total Performance", backed by the rigorous standard of always bringing together a number of performance characteristics into a tire, to achieve optimal results. We follow this philosophy not only in the development of our standard products, but also in motorsports. Numerous technical innovations help to relieve burdens on the environment, drivers, and businesses. Hidden out of sight in tire casings, tread designs, and rubber compounds, throughout their lives MICHELIN tires show their full potential: they offer excellent grip, long life, and reduced fuel consumption thanks to their low rolling resistance.

To better understand the conditions which tires are subjected to in everyday use, in the summer of 2014 Michelin began a unique research project – the Road Usage Lab. Vehicles from 3,000 drivers in Europe were equipped with special measurement devices to record data about the tires' use. These valuable findings are being employed in the development of future tire models, making them better suited to the needs of real drivers.
