Michelin have designed the Pilot Sport 3 with an enhanced tyre profile to quickly disperse any standing water from the path of the tyres to reduce the risk of aquaplaning.
When looking at the sidewall of the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 you will notice the 'GREEN X' badge. This has been awarded to the tyre as a symbol that the tyre provides you with the highest energy efficiency levels on the market. Michelin are able to achieve energy efficiency with the use of their high performance 'Green Power Compound' - a unique compound mixture that enables the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 to deliver fantastic grip - even when driving on wet roads - as well as fuel saving and a long tyre life.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
