The Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is the French brand's ultra-high performance tire, developed with insights from top players of the motorsport industry, such as BMW, Audi, Porsche, and Mercedes Benz. It employs specialized technology designed to enhance today's sports and luxury cars' potential. As a summer tire, the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S performs extraordinary under dry or wet conditions, providing excellent grip and high-speed handling, with an asymmetric tread pattern featuring 24 Hours of Le Mans-derived compounds side by side. The Michelin Pilot Sport 4S comes with a computer-modeled Variable Contact Patch 3.0, which optimizes pressure distribution in the area where the tire hits the ground when cornering, minimizing loss of grip and improving tire life by 20% over its predecessor.
The Michelin Pilot Sport 4S features a 9.5/32'' tread depth and a new dry-focused hybrid tread rubber for improved dry handling and braking on the low-void outer shoulder. Its center ribs and inboard shoulder include a wet compound (silica-infused) that increases the braking on wet surfaces. The Michelin Pilot Sport 4S features a treadwear 300 with a tread wear warranty of 30K miles. Aggressive drivers riding under extreme road conditions use these tires to enhance their lap times, bettering their cornering, braking, and acceleration at a reasonable cost.
