Michelin Pilot Super Sport features

Tyre details:

The Michelin Pilot Super Sport has been designed for mass-produced sports cars and vehicles tuned for ultra-high performance. Thanks to its innovative design, the model guarantees safety in even the most demanding conditions. The engineers behind the tyre have significantly improved performance compared with the previous model - for example, braking distances have been reduced by 3 metres. All of these parameters have been improved thanks to the experience acquired by Michelin experts in the 24-hour Le Mans race, which has been won by cars using Michelin tyres continuously for the past 15 years.

The tyre is noted for its excellent steerability on dry surfaces thanks to its asymmetric tread pattern, which adapts perfectly to the road conditions. All of this ensures a safe and reliable driving experience on any surface. The Michelin Pilot Super Sport uses a range of innovative technologies. Its TWARON belt ensures increased tyre stability at very high speeds. Thanks to its variable tension, the belt tightens the top of the tread more than the tyre shoulder, effectively controlling the centrifugal force. Thanks to this pressure is distributed even more evenly on the ground. The driver can therefore enjoy the tyre's full performance specifications for its entire lifetime, without worrying about a reduction in grip or safety concerns. The Michelin Pilot Super Sport also uses the BI-COMPOUND - an innovative combination of two different rubber compounds on the inside and outside of the tread. This ensures excellent driving stability and helps maintain the tyre's full range of performance features throughout its lifetime.

Michelin is one of the largest tyre manufacturers in the world. The company specialises in the production of premium tyres, noted for their optimal performance, superb manufacturing quality and reliability. The fact that the French company's tyres have been popular with drivers and car manufacturers alike for many years is testament to their high quality, with the Michelin Pilot Super Sport fitted as an original part in the Ford Focus RS.

    These tyres are great, however here are a couple of problems... 1: One of the fronts needed a load of weight to get it balanced correctly and its still not 100% correct, I would have rejected it had I known. 2: I bought 4x tyres (staggered rears) and all four have different manufacture dates, I was expecting that all four would be produced in the same month (since I ordered at the same time). I bought in 2015 and one was even a 5014 production date, not pleased at all, I even paid the extra so that they were 2015!!!! (they had others on the site with older dates, I specifically avoided them). Had I known these might have been problems, I would have paid extra and bought them at a proper tyre place as I could have addressed the issues there and then. I could not really complain as they are online sales only, so whats the point.

    Simply the best tyres I have had on any car I have owned. I put these on the M5 and the increase in grip that they have offered over the Conti's that came on the car is frankly night and day and well beyond my expectations of what a road tyre was capable of. Not usually one for reviews but felt compelled to do so as they really are that good. I cant comment on longevity as have only had them on a few thousand miles but seem to be wearing well and frankly I don't care if they wear sooner than the previous the increase in grip is well worth it. Living in the UK and on wet roads the M5 did tend to struggle with putting well over 500 BHP to the road, which I thought was fair enough a lot of power there! However, not with these fitted, complete game changer and very impressed.

    Best tyres ive ever fitted to a 'Road' car. Loads of grip, and i meen LOADS! Excelent in breaking, acceleration and cornering. I put these through their paces on a trip to the Austian GP earlier in the year which also took in some 'spirited' driving through several Alpine Passes and they were fatastic, i could not reccomend them enough for fast summer driving (Don't know about how they work in the winter yet). My mate also has them on his 3.4 Boxster S and loves them.

    1 of the tyres requires a great deal of weight to get it balanced, 3 times I've had it balanced and (at £20 a pop) its still not right. I have no complaints about the tyres per say, only about the supply, all 4 tyres have different manufacture dates and I explicitly ordered 2015 tyres (and paid extra) but I received 2x 2014 tyres, and 2x early (week 1) 2015 tyres. I will use the tyres again no problem but will not use the same supplier.

    I have had two sets of these tyres. Neither has lasted more than 12,000 miles (19, 200km) on the front axle. I drive in town and on motorways, so they don't meet abnormal challenges. Since buying the tyres I am reviewing, I have had to change again and have moved away from these tyres. They preform well in other respects but not so well that their appalling economy can be overlooked.
