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.
