Excellent steering control and high level of reactivity
«Dynamic Response» Technology: a hybrid belt of Aramid and Nylon ensures optimum transmission of steering instructions onto the road.
An ultra-reactive Tread Pattern Design, coming from motorsport experience (Formula E, WRC), adapts continuously to the road, for optimized footprint on the road
High level of safety on wet roads
A new mix of compound with specific “functional elastomers” and hydrophobic Silica provides excellent wet grip and braking
– Wide and deep longitudinal grooves ensure a high level of drainage on wet roads
Coming from co-operation with emblematic car manufactures and from MICHELIN motorsport experience
The MICHELIN PILOT SPORT tireline is co-designed with the most demanding car manufacturers (BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Porsche)*
– The tread pattern design comes from motorsport experience (FORMULA E, WEC**, WRC***…)

(1) Braking distance: Tests carried out by TÜV SUD, at Michelin’s request, in April 2015 with 225/45-17 94Y/W XL tyres and in July 2015 with 225/40-18 92Y XL tyres. Tyres bought by TÜV SUD from European retailers in 2015: BRIDGESTONE Potenza S001, CONTINENTAL SportContact 5, DUNLOP Sport Maxx RT, GOODYEAR Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2, PIRELLI PZERO, HANKOOK V12 EVO2 K120. The braking distance on dry roads is measured when braking at 100 km/h until the vehicle comes to a complete stop. The braking distance on wet roads is measured when braking at 80 km/h until the vehicle comes to a complete stop. Longevity: Tests carried out by DEKRA Test Center in April 2015 with 225/45-17 94Y/W XL tyres and in July 2015 with 225/40-18 92Y XL tyres. Rolling Resistance: Calculation based on the consumption of a BMW 3 Series (5,5l/100 km* with a fuel price at 1.36 euros/liter** over a distance of 50,000 kms, with a difference of 3% of fuel consumption from a vehicle equipped with C-rated tyres in rolling resistance and tyre rated E***, meaning an economy equivalent to the price of a tyre.**** * Based on a consumption of 5.5 L/100km (www.BMW.com BMW318i Sedan-Combined in l/100km). ** Average price of fuel in Europe http://globalpetrolprices.com/gasoline_prices/Europe. *** Performance measured in accordance with test methods laid down by the EC Regulation No 1222/2009 as amended by Regulation (EU) No 1235/2011. **** Average prices recorded for a tyre MICHELIN CrossClimate 195 / 55R1691V on internet sites and Allopneus Euromaster in France 19 August 2015.
