Tyre details: The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 was designed especially for racing drivers, but is also approved for use on public roads. It is the latest tyre from the French-owned Michelin to feature Michelin Total Performance technology, which applies the philosophy of endurance racing to deliver superlative performance. Drivers who are interested in purchasing this tyre will be reassured to hear that it lasts for over 50% more laps at an even higher speed than its predecessor (Michelin Pilot Sport Cup+).

The outstanding performance of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 results from the use of three cutting-edge technologies during its manufacture. The first of these is Bi-Compound technology, which involves the use of a compound containing high molecular chain elastomers for the exterior section of the tyre (providing outstanding grip on tight corners) and a more rigid elastomer for the interior section (ensuring precise steering and driving control). The combination of these elements guarantees superb grip on dry roads and more balanced lap times on dry tracks.

The second technology used by the designers of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 is Track Longevity 2.0®, which is evident in the tyre's reinforced exterior shoulders and is intended to provide greater durability and resistance. This aim has been achieved, since the wear rate of the tyre's exterior shoulder has been reduced.

The third key design feature of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 is its tread depth, which is increased by 20% compared to its predecessor. This increases the theoretical aquaplaning speed and therefore significantly improves grip and safety when driving on wet roads.

The French-owned Michelin is one of the world's largest tyre manufacturers. The company was founded in 1889, and its range focuses on the premium end of the market. The group owns brands including: Kleber, BFGoodrich and Kormoran.

The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 is fitted as original equipment in the Ford Focus RS.

    Opinion from outside the UK

    I finally found tyres suitable for sporty driving! The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres are more than incredible. Due to their superb rubber compund they offer excellent traction. The moments in which I can feel both power and speed of my car, give me a great adrenalinę rush! Now I am able to take dangerous corners with a pure precision. I love the feeling of an acceleration. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres provide me with sheer sensations. The tyres seem to be more durable than the previous model. What is more, I really fell safe on the road having these tyres mounted on the wheels. If you need long lasting tyres for aggressive driving, I think these are the best money can buy! I do recommend them. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres are extraordinary. If you need a sustainable and safe tyres for your car, these Michelins constitute an optimal choice for you. They were designed especially for intensive and long-term use. Furthermore, their creation invloves an innovative rubber compund. I do recommend the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres if you like to drive fast. I did some study on these tyres before I made my purchase and I read a lot of possitive reviews regarding their overall performance. The tyres are pretty quiet and comfortable. They provide good adhesion in different temperatures. I would like to recommend the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 to all who look for great premium tyres. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    I am not a racer but I love to drive fast. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres were designed especially for drivers who like to drive aggressively. Great tread pattern, remarkable rubber compound. I do not know how Michelin created these tyres but their rubber compound is not soft and it is not too hard. My car drives like it was sticked to the road. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres are very quiet. If you listen to music in your car, it is possible that you will not even hear anything at all inside a cabin. These tyres can be used both on public roads and on race tracks. If you decide to purchase a set, you will not regret! I am very satisfied with their quality! Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    I'm not a racing driver but I like to drive at high speeds. For some days now I have been enjoying a new purchase of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2- new technology from the Michelin brand. On the highway they perform really well and since I travel a lot I can say that the time spent driving is really pleasant :) with good music! With my Mercedes I can now travel the whole world. I highly recommend these tires because in corners, even in the most dangerous elbow ones, the car performs extremely well. The asymmetrical design gives me absolute security. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 product gives me great satisfaction !! Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    I finally have the right tyres for my track performance! Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 are simply amazing. I ride in my spare time and adventure on the track is my hobby. Moments when I accelerate, feel the power and the speed of my car are very exciting. These sharp curves and precision driving. Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 appear to be even more resistant to wear than the previous generation of tires. Reinforced shoulders on the outside perform very well, and deeper grooves do not close frantic chases in the rain. Michelin's latest model is really a recommendable and worth the price we pay for it!

    Opinion from outside the UK

    I decided to purchase a set of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. They were not cheap but you pay for quality. I did my homework and read about them as much as I could find. I took into consideration their overall performance, good reviews, labelling etc. They provide good grip and stability at higher speed. I personally like Michelin. It is my favourite premium tyre manufacturer. If you are looking for some hard-wearing tyres, they will be one of the best. I do recommend the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres as driving on these tyres is a pure pleasure. They are definitly worth their price. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    One of the best tyres I have ever had. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres provide comfort even if your car has a sporty suspension. The noise level of the tyres is very low. I have a sense of comfort in all conditions. Even the most demanding. I did not have any problems with these tyres. Both balancing and wheel alignment went smoothly. My decision to buy a set was based on many different factors but the main criteria was opinion of my close friend who has these tyres mounted on his vehicle. In other words I knew what I was about to buy before I placed my order. Great product. Read more Collapse

    I'm not a racer, but I like fast aggressive driving. I've been using Sport Cup 2 for a while. They perform great on highways and trust me - I travel quie a lot. Just play some music and the world ceases to exist. I can travel around the world now in my Mercedes. I can recommend Pilot Sport Cup 2 even for those who do not visit racetracks. The asymmetric tread pattern ensures stability even in tight corners. Read more Collapse

    I have tried Cup 2 only on the track. Grip on dry surface is exceptional. It isn't that bad on wet either, although let's not forget that it is a semi-slick tyre. Durability is alright but do not expect anything unusual. 10/10 would recommend! Read more Collapse
