The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tire has taken a technology leap forward and is continuing the legacy of the Michelin Pilot family of tires, says Calder.

Michelin North America has introduced its Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 ultra-high performance tire designed to offer high levels of both dry and wet grip for enhanced confidence and control in a variety of weather conditions.

“We set a new standard for performance with the introduction of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer tire,” saysSteve Calder, ultra-high performance category manager. “And now we have taken the knowledge gained during the development of that tire and paired it with our latest technologies to design a tire capable of providing an incredibly exhilarating drive while maintaining the performance characteristics needed for all seasons.”

The technology engineered into the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tire allows for:

* More dry grip than competitive max performance summer tires (based on internal dry autocross testing versus the Continental ExtremeContact DW and Pirelli Pzero Nero tire size 225/45ZR17). To see how, click here.

* Shortest wet and dry braking of leading competitors in the ultra-high performance all-season category (based on internal braking tests from 50 mph versus the Goodyear EaEagle F1 Asymmetric A/S, Bridgestone RE970AS Pole Position, Pirelli Pzero Nero A/S, Continental ExtremeContact DWS, Dunlop SP Sport Signature, and Yokohama ADVAN S.4. tire size 225/45ZR17).
