Product description & features
The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 is a high performance tyre, developed from the experience gained from endurance competitions.
Michelin's Pilot Sport Cup 2 is a tyre designed for the track, and approved for road use.
The tyre features track longevity technology 2.0, delivering slower wear on the outer shoulder. A reinforced external shoulder, with a specially selected rubber compound, makes the tyre high resistant to wear.

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.
