The Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 is a top-performing all-weather tire belonging to the brand's low-profile, high-speed line-up. Thanks to its unbeatable capabilities and performance levels, it is the standard tire setup for some of the most prestigious sports cars from BMW, McLaren, and Porsche. This tire features two tread rubber compounds that combine dry and wet traction, providing incredible cornering and high-speed abilities. A hybrid silica/carbon black compound begins right at the outer shoulder, continues across the tread, and joins with a high-silica mixture that reaches the inside shoulder.
The Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 features a 220 treadwear rating, near the borderline between durable and high-performance tires. This tread is 9.5/32'' deep. The near R-compound on its construction provides a 20,000-mile tread life and top-notch capacities. The tread design on the PS2 employs two lightweight high-tensile steel cord belts reinforced by individual Aramid/nylon hybrid filaments. This arrangement improves steering response and enhances ride quality at high speed. The Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tread design features wide circumferential grooves and lateral notches for better traction under the wet road. It's a compound that will fit even some of the most demanding drivers and driving expectations without losing grip, stability, or speed.
