Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3
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.
- 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.
- Unique biting edges in the grooves grip snow for better acceleration and braking in snowy conditions.
- Helio compound with sunflower oil helps to increase traction at low temperatures, while extreme silica technology provides exceptional wet grip.
- Asymetric tread pattern and Variable Contact Patch 2.0 design result in strong dry performance combined with long tread life.
“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”
