10 Apr Michelin Launches New ‘Ultra-High Performance’ Tire
Michelin introduces the new Pilot Sport 4 S, an ultra-high performance tire, which replaces the Michelin Pilot Super Sport, an industry-leading ultra-high-performance tire for original equipment and replacement applications.
Designed for sports cars, the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S offers exceptional steering precision and directional stability. It provides maximum performance and safety on all surfaces due to its optimized tread footprint which grips the road in all situations, even the most extreme, said a statement from the company.
The tire’s use of bi-compound technology delivers excellent braking performance on both dry and wet surfaces. The outer part of the tread uses a new hybrid compound that promotes grip on dry ground while the inner side uses a new compound with silica and so-called functional elastomers which allow the tire to offer consistent grip on wet surfaces.
The tire was developed specifically for owners of cars from manufacturers including BMW M, Ferrari, Ford, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche. Michelin is working hand-in-hand with the world’s leading car manufacturers to provide the most suitable tires to complement the performance of their most exclusive models.
