I mentioned the TS870 as a newer alternative to the Michelin PA4 that Craig is interested in. The newest Michelin Alpin tire is the Alpin 6, but I am not sure if it will ever show up in the North American market. Some sizes are available in V speed rating.
Michelin presented the new MICHELIN Alpin 6 tire at the Paris Motor Show in October 2018: the latest-generation winter tire for passenger cars. This long-lasting performance tire is destined for the European market.www.michelin.com
For the last several years Michelin has been pushing the idea of "perennial performance" for their tires: https://www.michelin.com/eng/media-room/...-limit-of-1.6mm Quote:For your car, a new tire represents a tread depth of around 8mm and can sometimes be as much as 9.5mm on some models...www.bobistheoilguy.com
I think I found my answer - Michelin Canada lists the new Pilot Alpin PA5, which I assume incorporates new developments in line with the X-Ice SNOW. It doesn't look like they intend to sell it in the size I need for winter either. (Sadly, they don't show the Pilot A/S 4 in my summer size either, which I would seriously think about when my PS4S are done).
