Product description & features
The Michelin Pilot Sport 4 Acoustic is a high performance tyre, developed with dynamic response technology to ensure that the tyre is continually conforming to the contours of the road, delivering the best traction available for the conditions.
The Pilot Sport 4 Acoustic has a tyre compound featuring a unique blend of elastomers and hydrophobic Silica which helps the tyre to remain flexible - delivering excellent wet grip and reliable braking performances. The tyre's wide longitudinal grooves work to disperse surface water from the road surface, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
This tyre features advanced Michelin technology to lower interior tyre noise generated. In order to do this, Michelin have applied polyurethane foam to the inner surface of the tyre which will absorb the vibration and noise produced.
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.
