PILOT SPORT 3
PILOT SPORT 3
The Pilot Sport 3 is Michelin's Max Performance Summer tire developed as Original Equipment for premium high-performance sports cars, coupes and sedans. Based on Michelin expertise from over a dozen consecutive Le Mans 24-Hour Race victories, the Pilot Sport 3 is an eco-friendly sport tire with Green X branded on its sidewalls to guarantee it offers one of the best energy efficiency levels on the market. The Pilot Sport 3 is designed to balance tread life, fuel efficiency and road gripping performance in dry and wet conditions. However, like all summer tires, they are not intended to be driven in near freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
The Pilot Sport 3 features Michelin's Green Power Compound to combine grip on wet surfaces with fuel savings and greater longevity. This compound is molded into an asymmetric tread design to enhance dry road response and cornering while Michelin's Anti Surf System combines an optimized profile and tread grooves to cut through puddles and standing water to resist hydroplaning and deliver shorter wet braking distances.
The tire's internal structure features Michelin's Programmed Distortion tire architecture that uses digital technology to enhance driving enjoyment and steering precision. Twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide are combined with a polyester casing to enhance ride quality and high-speed durability.
