Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2 are winter tires designed for sports cars and luxury vehicles. Traction is achieved using bi-directional and variable-thickness sipes, the combination of which are able to get better road hold in even in subzero temperatures. The amount of rubber in contact with the road is maximized through a larger contact patch. This means more of the tread is working to gain traction, helping with cold-weather hazards including black ice. All of the tread design and contact patch technology has been maximized through Comfort Control Technology, which computer-optimizes the design to greatly reduce vibrations and road noise.
Two speed ratings are available: H and V. In the H speed rated models, a Zero Pressure system is active that will keep the tire rigid in case of a puncture. This enables the driver to go 50 miles at 55 mph with no air pressure in the tire at all.
