Product description & features
The Michelin Pilot Super Sport that has been developed in conjunction with teams from Porsche, BMW and Ferrari.
To deliver a stable and reliable performance, Michelin have constructed the tyre with a Twaron® belt - this produces variable grip levels to distribute the forces of tension and grip evenly throughout the surface of the tyre.
Michelin have designed the Pilot Super Sport with a unique dual compound technology that utilises the characteristics of different rubber compounds between the inner and outer sections of the tread. The outside of the tyre features a carbon black reinforced compound derived from Michelin's experiences at Le Mans 24, whilst the inside of the tyre uses a compound combination of the latest generation in elastomers to deliver exceptional wet grip.
The Michelin Pilot Super Sport has been designed to provide motorists with high performance and safety in even the most demanding conditions. The tyre delivers exceptionally well in dry weather, with responsive handling and strong levels of traction.
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.
