See my posts on Michelin Agilis Alpin.

I’ve used them on 3 of our motorhomes and two sprinter vans.

Exceptional wear, grip and ride comfort. You won’t be disappointed.

Usually stocked in two load indexes.

I was lucky with the motorhome too. Got 5 brand new off eBay £50 each

They must be a lot better than their camping tyres then. Current van has had Michelin CP's from new worst tyres I've ever had for grip & ride.

Yes, totally agree.

Again if you read my older posts regarding the very old Michelin XC camper, M+S rated tyres. They had shocking grip and tendency to cracking of sidewalls.

I’ve no experience of its latest version.

I bought a car with Michelin “Energy Saver” tyre on. Appalling grip, tendency to aquaplane and side walls cracked after 18months.

But the Michelin Alpin are superb

Not on our motorhome admittedly but I’ve got Yokohama W Drive v903 tyres on my rally car. Excellent winter grip in snow and on ice over the last two seasons. New set just about to go on.

I have the Michelin agilis alpin tyres on mine, went for the larger load index 121 to give me a much
Broader load margin,
Have had them 3 years and 15000 miles, they are about half worn at the front and a third worn at the rear,
Probably will put two new ones on the front before travelling to Spain in February,
