Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus
Get the facts on Michelin performance tires
The Pilot family of Michelin performance tires combines a low-profile design with high-speed reliability. These tires are recommended for high-performance luxury cars and sports cars of all types. Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires are meant for all-season driving, including wet weather as well as light snow. However, they are not recommended for use in difficult or demanding winter conditions; they perform best on dry, evenly paved roads. In fact, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus reviews have noted that the tires suffer a noticeable loss of performance in wet conditions, which is one of the product’s shortcomings.
On the plus side, though, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus performance tires have a finely tuned response to both subtle and dramatic steering moves, and improve your car’s handling capabilities. Thanks to a patented directional tread design, these tires help you communicate with the road better while reducing noise. Additional design features include lateral grooves, on the tire’s circumference as well as higher angles, which provide reasonably good stability on damp roads and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. However, as mentioned, the tire shows a somewhat below-average performance in wet conditions overall. On the whole, though, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires are considered a quality option for drivers looking to enhance their vehicle’s responsiveness and performance at high speeds, particularly in dry conditions.
The tread-life warranty for the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus tire is six years or 45,000 miles, and the uniformity warranty covers you for one year or one-sixteenth of an inch in tread wear. They are available in 58 different sizes, giving you the ability to choose the absolutely optimal size for your vehicle. If you need any help choosing the correct size, talk to a certified Michelin dealer.
