The Pilot Alpin 5 SUV ZP is Michelin’s Light Truck/SUV Performance Winter / Snow run-flat tire developed to meet the needs of enthusiast drivers of performance-tuned pickup trucks, crossovers and SUVs who don’t want wintry conditions to prevent them from enjoying their vehicles year-round. The Pilot Alpin 5 SUV ZP offers temporary extended mobility (up to 50 miles at 50 mph) in the event a puncture results in complete tire pressure loss.
A winter-focused compound molded into a highly siped, directional tread pattern features broad shoulder blocks and a wide, central groove to blend stability and cornering grip on dry roads with hydroplaning resistance and traction in slush, snow and on ice. A specialized undertread minimizes energy dissipation to reduce rolling resistance and aid fuel economy, while the two-ply, reinforced polyester casing improves sidewall robustness for added durability. Two high-strength steel belts supporting the tread are reinforced by a polyamide cap ply to aid in handling responsiveness and provide high-speed durability.
Pilot Alpin 5 SUV ZP winter radials meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol (3PMSF).
Note: Snow platform indicators (the equivalent of “snow wear bars”) are molded into the Pilot Alpin 5 SUV ZP tread grooves to inform the driver when deep snow traction will be reduced as the tire’s tread reaches the point where the remaining tread depth becomes less effective in deep snow.
