        My first Winter tire & I love it!

              Comments about Pilot Alpin PA4:

              A year ago, my brother borrowed my car and on the way back from his short trip snow started and he skid off the road (very minor repair to safety plastic under the engine). That moment was a wake-up call for me. I'm usually using the same car to ride my family around and definitely didn't want the same to happen to me or any of my family members. I'm from the country where summer gets 40 to 45deg Celsius but winter gets some snow and average temperature around 0 deg C.

              I've been planning to get another Michelin Winter tire, but this one was on stock, no need to wait.

              Immediately I felt the difference, even when there was no snow, as advertised when the temperature of the ground gets below +7 deg C. those tires were magnificent. Wheels do exactly what you want. After a snow fall I felt that my ABS is not working crazy, like it was before with All Season Tires, meaning the wheels not losing traction easily. Then me and my friend decided to do some experiment, he has the similar car (per weight) but All Season tires. We found abandoned road with icy snow on it and start testing for braking distance, all test were repeated at list 3 times. First test was to perform Emergency stop from 40km/h to 0km/h, Vehicle fitted with All Season tires skid for 30 meters (98.4 ft) longer repeatedly. Second test was to apply emergency stop from 60km/h to 0km/h, Vehicle fitted with All Season tires skid for 50 meters (164 ft) longer. This wasn't a test to convince my friend but to check if there is real world/life difference in All Season vs Winter tires, but my friend went directly to the shop to buy a set of winter tires.

              Definitely recommend the winter tires from Michelin.

                    I'm heading through my second winter on these. On packed snow, I've found them to be truly great. They stop and turn very well. My neighborhood is hilly and doesn't get plowed. Traveling uphill through 6 to 8 inches of snow, there's definitely some wheel slip - but they've always gotten me through the hills and onto plowed roads. Descending steep hills is a non-issue. No sliding at all. A good match for the S4 - they make the pretty much bullet-proof in winter.

                    Great winter tire for Audi S4

                          I have a 2013 Audi S4 with summer tires/wheels and needed a good overall winter tire for Michigan winters. I did some extensive research reading reviews and narrowed down to the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4's. I'm glad I went with these tires. They provide excellent traction, quiet and I feel very secure on cold snow covered roads. I would highly recommend these tires.
