The Latitude Alpin LA2 is Michelin’s Light Truck/SUV Performance Winter / Snow tire developed for the drivers of all-wheel drive crossover and sport utility vehicles. Designed for cold, wet, snow-covered and icy driving conditions, the Latitude Alpin LA2 blends good ride comfort, responsive handling and wintertime traction in addition to meeting Michelin’s Green X standard for low rolling resistance, confirming the tire’s contribution to reducing vehicle fuel consumption and emissions of CO2 gases.
Latitude Alpin LA2 tires feature Michelin’s Helio Compound 3G (3rd generation 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. Michelin Stabiligrip technology featuring variable geometry sipes (wavy at the tire’s surface and straight at their base) increase tread block rigidity to enhance handling at higher speeds, as well as permit more biting edges for greater traction in wet and wintertime conditions. 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.
Michelin Latitude Alpin LA2 winter / snow tires meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.
Install Latitude Alpin LA2 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.
