The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is a top-selling tire for high-tech motorsports-oriented machines to enhance their safety and performance. It is a summer tire with a treadwear 300 for optimal durability, superb traction, and handling under most weather conditions. Wearing the Pilot Super Sport setup allows supercars, sports coupes, and high-power sedans to achieve their maximum capabilities. These Michelins feature an asymmetric design molded on the brand's unique Bi-compound tread rubber with a Le Mans-inspired dry compound outboard, working side to side with space-age materials. Its notched center ribs alongside the inboard shoulder feature a special compound to provide top-notch performance at high speeds and over wet surfaces, becoming the go-to choice for most experienced drivers in and outside the tracks.
The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is one of the most high-end models of the French tire giant lineup, designed as original equipment for exclusive sports cars such as the limited edition Ferrari 599 GTO. Sizes vary from 17 to 22-inches (rim width), all including a 30K tread warranty. The internal construction features twin steel belts reinforced by a spirally wound Twaron cord offering a lightweight, high-strength reinforcement above the steel belts. The technological advances of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport save about 10% weight over its competitors, delivering top-of-the-line performance, comfort, and speed for motorsport teams and high-end users worldwide.
