Michelin Pilot Sport PS2
The Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 Max Performance Summer tire was initially developed for use as Original Equipment on some of the world's most prestigious sports cars & sports sedans by combining world-class wet & dry handling with confident & predictable cornering. Some of the first fitments include the BMW Alpina Z8, Chrysler Crossfire, McLaren SLR & Porsche GT2 & GT3 models.

The Pilot Sport PS2 tire features advances in performance, wear, durability, & comfort thanks to Michelin's patented C3M manufacturing technology, a highly advanced production process that allows for extremely precise placement of a wider variety of tire components than ever before.

On the outside, Pilot Sport PS2 tires feature two different rubber compounds across their treads. A hybrid silica/carbon black compound begins at the tire's outer shoulder & continues across the tread until it joins a high-silica compound that continues to the tire's inside shoulder. Each of these tread compounds is specifically formulated for its location to optimize dry & wet handling for crisp, predictable corning & increased wear & high-speed durability. Additionally, these high grip tread compounds are molded into an asymmetric design with large outer shoulder blocks along with continuous intermediate & center ribs (similar to that of Michelin's Formula One tires) to enhance steering response & cornering stability. The tread design also features wide circumferential grooves & lateral notches that help channel water through the footprint to enhance wet road traction. On the inside, the tread design is supported by two, high-tensile, lightweight steel cord belts that are further reinforced by size-optimized, precisely placed individual Aramid/nylon hybrid filaments. These Aramid/nylon hybrid filaments replace the old bands of nylon to bring the Pilot Sport PS2 to a new level of manufacturing & design tuning precision. This precision allows the Pilot Sport PS2 to provide improved steering response & resistance to distortion while enhancing ride quality & high speed durability.

Pilot Sport PS2 radials feature blackwall styling & are available in select low profile, Y-speed rated sizes.
