Michelin Pilot Sport 4 205/40 R18 86 Y XL, ZR, DT1
Description of Technology: If you are looking for tyres for a sports car which provide maximum performance regardless the weather and comfort, then Michelin Pilot Sport 4 are ideal for you. The model guarantees safety on different types of surfaces and confidence during dynamic and fast driving .
Michelin Pilot Sport 4 is the successor of the trusted model Michelin Pilot Sport 3. The tyres use innovative technology that make it durable and safe. The Dynamic Response technology applied consists of a belt with hybrid aramid and nylon reinforcement that ensures optimal directional control.
The model was designed with an asymmetric ultra-responsive tread . It constantly adapts to the road, thanks to the clever mastery of the dynamic interaction between the architecture, tread pattern and materials. This results in optimal management of the contact patch.
The wide circumferential grooves and numerous sipes efficiently evacuate water from the tyres to minimise the risk of skidding and loss of grip. By effectively draining water, the tread avoids the appearance of dangerous aquaplaning.
The high-level performance is achieved through a very new homogeneous tread compound mix including functional elastomers and fine silica . In addition, there are wide, deep longitudinal grooves which provide efficient water evacuation on wet roads. This new mixture also improves the tyre’s longevity and fuel efficiency.
The model is durable and resistant to damage so you can enjoy a high-quality performance longer without the risk of abrasion and mechanical damage.
The creation of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 was a response to the needs of demanding drivers who do not want to give up the sport performance in various weather conditions. The tyre was developed in cooperation with experts from companies such as BMW, Porsche, Audi and Mercedes.
