Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3

Features

Variable Contact Patch 2.0 combined with an aggressive asymmetric tread pattern inspired by the MICHELIN® Pilot®Super Sport.

Extreme amounts of silica in the tread compound combined with Variable Thickness Sipes and large circumferential grooves.

MICHELIN® Helio Compound® combined with Variable Thickness Sipes and unique biting edges in the tread grooves.

  1. Variable thickness sipes provide additional biting edges in low–grip conditions to improve wet and snow traction, but lock together in dry conditions to provide crisp handling and longer treadwear.
  2. Unique biting edges in the grooves grip snow for better acceleration and braking in snowy conditions.
  3. Helio compound with sunflower oil helps to increase traction at low temperatures, while extreme silica technology provides exceptional wet grip.
  4. Asymetric tread pattern and Variable Contact Patch 2.0 design result in strong dry performance combined with long tread life.

Customer Reviews

“The Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires previously on my car offered incredibly traction even in packed snow. They did suffer from unusual wear though and for that reason I decided to try the A/S 3 tire. However, shame on Michelin for introducing new Ultra-High Performance tires that go backwards in terms of traction by a fair margin. The tires perform worse than the A/S Plus even in dry/wet conditions and pretty poorly in snow conditions. Yes, overall they are better than typical All-Season tires but I would go back to the A/S Plus tires in a heartbeat.”

“Very good wet / dry handling but a harsh ride on average roads”
