Michelin Pilot Sport 3
The Michelin Pilot Sport 3 is a premium summer tyre designed to meet the strictest requirements for a product of this quality class. It is a particularly reliable partner on wet roads, its profile effectively breaking up and dispersing the film of water on the asphalt. As water is directed well away from the contact area, aquaplaning prevention is very good indeed. The modern technologies employed ensure particularly confident behaviour under hard cornering, as well as outstanding agility and short braking distances.
Environmentally friendly summer tyres
The sidewall of the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 proudly displays the "GREEN X" marking. It stands for environmental friendliness, especially for lower fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions – this is the first sporty tyre to ever bear this symbol. The special tread compound reduces fuel consumption, while also ensuring that the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 lasts longer, owing to reduced resistance and tread wear. This "Green Power Compound" mixture is not only good for the environment, but also serves with distinction in motorsport – it has been involved in delivering no fewer than 18 victories in the Le Mans 24 hour race.
Excellent test results for the Michelin Pilot Sport 3
It is little wonder that the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 also fared well in specialist media tests. In Sportauto magazine’s 2013 summer tyre test, as ten 225/40 R 18 tyres from different manufacturers were put through their paces, it impressed with high steering precision (no other tyre managed to beat its score), and took victory in the sporty driving test on a dry track, outclassing the best of its competitors. Outstandingly, almost all test criteria were bested with the maximum number of points. Also, it has proved that it can maintain its composure under hard cornering, and even fast paced driving on wet roads is handled effortlessly. In the same year, ADAC’s tyre testing sessions produced similar results. The Michelin Pilot Sport 3 was found to be a "very well balanced tire" and to behave "particularly well in the wet." Regarding tread wear and fuel consumption, its performance was equally convincing.
