Product description & features
Created to provide a super sport performance, the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S has received top marks in independent tyre tests to evaluating a range of desired sports car driving characteristics including being awarded the overall tyre test winner of the 2020 Evo Tyre Test.
Michelin have created the Pilot Sport 4 S with an ultra-reactive tread pattern design, adapting continuously to the road - in order to deliver an optimised surface footprint.
The Pilot Sport 4S features Michelin 'Dynamic Response' technology – made from a hybrid belt of aramid and nylon to provide motorists with optimum handling performance.
Exceptional dry grip and improved wet braking have been achieved thanks to the use of Bi-Compound technology. The tyre features a novel hybrid elastomer for dry grip and a new mix of compound with specific “functional elastomers” and silica for wet grip and braking.
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.
