Securing a commendable second position out of 16 competitors, the MICHELIN ALPIN 6 showcased a noteworthy performance that earned it a final rating of 'Good'. Notable for its precise and safe handling characteristics at the limit on dry roads, the tyre also demonstrated overall secure performance on wet surfaces, complemented by a very high projected mileage. Its lightweight design and low fuel consumption further enhanced its appeal. While it shined in many aspects, it fell slightly short with mild weaknesses in lateral aquaplaning behavior and wet handling. On winter roads, it delivered a solid performance, with its braking distances on snow being slightly below average and traction measurements slightly above average. It excelled in handling, thanks to sufficient safety reserves and precise steerability, and achieved above-average results in braking measurements on ice. The environmental footprint of the MICHELIN ALPIN 6 was impressive, boasting significantly above-average wear life in the wear test, minimal tyre wear, and excellent efficiency courtesy of its low weight and fuel consumption metrics.

Ranked #6 of 7
In a competitive field, the Michelin Alpin 6 secured a sixth-place finish out of seven contenders. Since its last evaluation in 2019, the Alpin 6 demonstrated consistent performance, though it could not replicate its former third-place success. This time, its strengths were most apparent in snow conditions, where it claimed the third spot among its rivals in snow-based assessments. However, the tyre fell short in wet conditions, lagging a little over two percent behind the leaders with a sixth-place finish. Its performance on dry surfaces revealed a stable but front-limited balance, alongside a marginally quicker loss of grip compared to competitors. On a positive note, its fuel efficiency showed considerable improvement, now equaling the best in its class. Unfortunately, this advancement was overshadowed by its last-place ranking in cabin noise, mirroring its previous performance in 2019.

Ranked #6 of 6
Finishing 6th out of 6 competitors, the Michelin ALPIN 6 demonstrated a performance that, while placed last, was closely contested with its nearest rivals. There was a minimal margin separating it from the other contenders, notably the third-placed Hankook, highlighting that in practical conditions, the differences were negligible. Impressively, the tyre’s design, which allows for grooves to widen as it wears, ensures sustained effectiveness over its lifespan. This feature shone particularly in snow conditions where it showcased superior straight-line acceleration and braking performance. It even secured the top spot in snow traction, a significant improvement given its past performances. However, this enhancement in snow grip seemingly compromised its wet handling capabilities, where it was less formidable. Despite this, its performance in wet conditions was marked by excellent braking and stable handling, underscoring a sense of safety. In dry conditions, though the tyre felt somewhat soft, it maintained a competitive stance regarding fuel efficiency. This nuanced assessment underlines the ALPIN 6's consistent and reliable performance across diverse conditions, illustrating Michelin's commitment to innovation and safety.

Ranked #3 of 8
Securing a commendable third place out of eight competitors, the Michelin Alpin 6 was given a final verdict of "Highly recommended." During the evaluations, the tyre showcased a balanced handling on wet surfaces, with smooth transitions at the limit and strong performance in both braking and aquaplaning tests. On dry roads, although the tyre exhibited minimal reaction to sudden changes in direction and a slightly tardy steering response, leading to understeer in corners, its rolling efficiency could be improved. In snowy conditions, it excelled in traction, though it didn't achieve the best braking performance. The Alpin 6 was stable through slalom-like turns, yet it lacked the ultimate grip needed for higher speeds. Notably, it stood out in specific disciplines, performing impressively in Aquaplaning - cross and showing remarkable Snow traction.
