Michelin Pilot Sport Cup
Developed for drivers who participate in
autocross & track events, the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup is a DOT
legal street competition radial that is designed to increase driving
excitement by providing class winning traction & handling.
On the outside, the Pilot Sport Cup uses
dual zone tread compounds with the outer shoulder compound optimized
for dry handling & the inside shoulder compound focused on wet
traction. These tread compounds are molded into a 6/32” deep
asymmetric tread design that features a massive outer shoulder rib
to further enhance steering response & cornering stability while
circumferential grooves & independent tread blocks are used on the
inner portion of the tread design to enhance damp track traction.
Internally, the Pilot Sport Cup features two, full-width steel belts
reinforced with Michelin’s Banded At Zero (BAZ) technology to
stiffen the tread area to help prevent the contact area from
distorting during aggressive acceleration, cornering & braking.
The Pilot Sport Cup radial’s basic sidewall materials &
architecture have been carried forward from Michelin’s Pilot Sport
line of Max Performance tires.
Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires
feature sidewall styling with subtle black letters. They are be
available in selected 55-, 50-, 45-, 40-, 35- & 30-series, Y-speed
rated sizes for 15", 16”, 17” & 18" wheel diameters.
