The Michelin Pilot Sport 3 is a high class summer tyre. The Michelin designers have developed the tyre using an innovative formula, making this the first environmentally friendly sporty tyre thanks to its construction. The Pilot Sport 3 combines a specially designed rubber compound with an innovative tread pattern. This combination gives the tyre some exceptionally effective features: above average energy efficiency, excellent grip and accurate steering in even the most extreme conditions. The Pilot Sport 3 also offers an extended lifetime, which guarantees the longest possible mileage.
The Michelin Pilot Sport 3 uses top-of-the-range technology. The Tread Deformation Software System involves the use of a specially prepared compound that helps maintain an optimal tread temperature in any weather, which is also important when driving at high speeds. At low performance levels, the rubber reaches the correct temperature after just a few seconds. Increases in speed in turn result in tread stiffening, which prevents overheating. The use of this technology means that the Pilot Sport 3 retains ideal traction performance in any situation.
The tyre is also noted for its flexibility, which minimises the effect of deformation and protects the tyre against mechanical damage. The Anti-Surf system has been used to improve performance on wet surfaces. The perfectly balanced profile ensures dynamic dispersal of water or other liquids, significantly reducing the risk of skidding. The manufacturer has also improved long-distance performance and braking distances, which have been significantly reduced, resulting in a big improvement in passenger safety. The Green Power rubber compound uses nanostructures. Two types of polymers, the Long Lasting Elastomer and the Elastomer Wet Grip, improve service life, durability, resistance to damage and wear and provide excellent flexibility, as well as improved performance on wet surfaces. The Michelin Pilot Sport 3 is the ideal solution for mid-range and premium passenger cars. It also performs exceptionally well in sports cars, small cars, estates and limousines. It is also suited to station wagons, smaller roadster type vehicles and coupés. The Pilot Sport 3 guarantees safety and a long lifetime. The Pilot Sport 3 offers the Michelin guarantee.

I looked for a suitable tyre for summer for a BMW 318d E91 with sports suspension (M-kit) and I decided to buy Michelin Pilot Sport 3, expecting this tyre to achieve high results. As for now, I am partially satisfied. Here is the answer why. Its advantages are very good handling, high driving precision, also on wet surfaces, short braking distance, low rolling resistance (since I fitted Michelin Pilot Sport 3 to my car, I didn’t notice any change in fuel consumption). It has good resistance to mechanical damage – I happened to drive on a curb at ca. 25 MPH at the angle of 30 degrees, the wheel slid off and the edge scraped the wheel. The alloy wheel was damaged and the tyre didn’t have any signs of that hit. They also absorb the bumps well (and these are non-Run Flat tyres) despite its relatively low profile. Its drawback is definitely its noise level. I can hear their humming (tyres are 225/45R17) at 40 MPH already, and above 60 MPH it combines with the sound of the air around the car. I was expecting this tyre to be much more quiet, despite the fact it’s a “sports” tyre. I don’t rate its wear as I have only done ca. 1800 miles, and as for now there are no signs of wear.
The best Tyre by far, I have noticed how much more speed I can take round corners without the car letting go and how much harder I can accelerate out of very low speed corners. The grip in the wet is phenomenal, the first time I drove in the wet with these tyres on the front I forgot it was raining the handling did not change until I noticed the car over steer in tight corners. I do not have the Michelin pilot sport 3's on the rear axle, since fitting them to the front I have noticed that the car now likes to over steer and loose the rear end in wet conditions due to the much higher levels of front end grip. My rear tyres are no way near the wear limit but I shall be upgrading the rears to ps3's within the next week. It is not coincidence that high powered cars such as koenigseggs ect all come with either pilot super sport tyres or sport cup 2 tyres. If you have a Fiesta ST PLEAS FORGET any other Tyre, these are the ones to have, I have tried many top range and middle such as Hankook v12 evo (current rear tyres) and Uniroyal RS3, Contisc3 and pirelli P Zero and whilst they have some good characteristics the PS3's blow them out of the water
Some of these reviews are hilarious. I appreciate comments are global but some of the chinglish is funny.
Anyway back to the tyres. I appreciate tyres are a personal thing, and after so many cars and so many different sizes, one thing i find constant is tyre wear.
Now i find when i replace tyre on my cars, here in the UK you can bank on it being a 50 50 mix of wet and dry most of the year can't we ? other brands grip just fine, some even last a while, some refuse to wear out and crumble away (Pirelli) and others just refuse to grip full stop.
I choose michelins now because apart from lasting nearly lasting twice as long as budget tyres, the low road noise is important but one bug bear of mine is when a tyre is half worn and you hit white lines to be dragged off in all directions - well the Michelins seem to wear well and are far more predictable than others.
Yes they are expensive, but they last, they wear well, they are comfortable but most importantly they grip when you need it.
Funnily enough the Michelin pilot road 3's on bikes work just as well too. and no i don't work for them.
The Michelin Pilot Sport 3 is better than the PS2 in many ways. First of all, behaviour on wet is better than the one of any other summer tyre in that size. The tyre is extremely resistant to aquaplanning, allowing for much safer and more enthusiastic driving in the rain. Behaviour on dry leaves nothing to complain about. The braking distance may be a little shorter than the other tyres, but the grip and stability in the corners at high speed (over 150 MPH on the motorways) are at the highest level. The tyre wears faster, but it's the soft compound that provides the parameters. Tire worth the money. I recommend Michelin Pilot Sport 3 to those drivers who like driving fast and powerful cars.
I've tried various top brand tyres and these are far the best on my fiesta. Sure grip and handling are great, a lot better than the tyres it came with, I always thought the front end was going to slide away, but with these Michelin's my fiesta stick to the road like glue. Noise wise, a bit! but nothing to rattle my cage. A great buy in my opinion and dealing with Oponeo is a pleasure delivering them to where I want, when I want so will be back guaranteed to buy more tyres when needed. Lastly although I've only had them five months or so, they still look brand new. Thank you Oponeo.
