Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Pilot Super Sport is Michelin’s Max Performance Summer tyre initially introduced as Original Equipment on several of the world’s most sophisticated performance vehicles, including the exclusive limited edition Ferrari 599 GTO, Ferrari’s fastest road car ever. Developed for drivers who care about how tyre technology enhances their vehicle’s performance and safety, Pilot Super Sport tyres expand the Max Performance Summer tyre performance envelope by delivering durability, handling and traction while increasing tread life. Pilot Super Sport tyres are designed to deliver consistent performance and longevity by blending Max Performance driving characteristics with extended tread wear. While Pilot Super Sport tyres are designed to allow sports cars, sporty coupes, performance sedans and supercars to achieve their full potential in dry and wet conditions, like all summer tyres they are not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
