Handling is fully comparable with competing tyres, but is unbeatable in cost savings. It has by far the highest mileage (compared to the competition up to 35% better) while maintaining excellent driving properties. Investment in this tire is definitely worth it. It's successor Michelin Alpin 5 However, the results aren't particullary good - that's why we recommend rather this older model.
