Michelin Pilot Sport 2
Pilot Sport PS2 is a Max Performance Summer tyre member of the Michelin Pilot family of low profile, high-speed tyres. Initially developed for Original Equipment (O.E.) on some of the world’s most prestigious sports cars and performance sedans, it combines world-class dry road traction, handling and cornering. Some of the first Pilot Sport PS2 O.E. fitments were the BMW Alpina Z8, McLaren SLR and Porsche GT2/GT3 models. It will pull the fullest potential from vehicle in wet or dry conditions. It is designed to deliver precise handling and stability at top speed with reassuring braking abilities. With Pilot Sport PS2 drivers can tackle corners with max performance and benefit from one of the quietest rides in its class. The Pilot Sport PS2 is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
Drawing motivation from Formula One design, the new Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tyre represents a quantum leap in tyre design and engineering. A combination of the most advanced tyre-making technologies and techniques, from the highly guarded C3M production process to a Formula One inspired four-groove tread design, the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 is stretching the very limits of what an ultra-high performance tyre can achieve.
Key Features and Benefits:
Minimized road noise due to an acoustically tuned asymmetrical tread pattern.
Superior handling and grip in both wet and dry conditions due to an asymmetrical tread design featuring more grooves for water evacuation on the inside shoulder and massive tread blocks for max handling on the outside shoulder.
Maximum grip and handling without a sacrifice of tread life because of a stickier tread compound.
Precision handling and control in high speed cornering due to the Formula One inspired four-groove tread design which provides greater stability in the tread and contact area under extreme conditions.
Uniform shape at high-speeds, enhanced ride quality, steering precision and high speed durability due to a size-optimized, precisely placed individual Aramid/nylon hybrid filaments via the patented C3M Technology manufacturing process.
Accurate handling with reduced tyre distortion at high speeds.
