- Three metres shorter braking distance on wet roads⁽¹⁾

• N°1 in dry handling⁽²⁾
• The fastest tyre⁽³⁾ ⁽⁴⁾

Developed with Porsche, BMW M and Ferrari


TECHNOLOGY

THE TWARON® BELT

• At very high speed, The Twaron® belt ensures greater stability.
• Its variable tension grips the centre of the tread more tightly than the shoulders. 
Centrifugal force is thus better controlled and forces are distributed more evenly.

DUAL-COMPOUND TECHNOLOGY

• A novel distribution of two different rubber compounds between the outer and inner sides of the tread.
• Outer side: a novel carbon black-reinforced elastomer derived directly from the Le Mans 24 Hour Race.
The result: extreme endurance even under the tightest cornering.
• Inner side: the latest generation of elastomers with exceptional wet grip to mould themselves to the slightest irregularities in the road surface and break the film of water.

VARIABLE CONTACT PATCH 2.0

Whether you’re accelerating flat out in a straight line or cornering at high speed, you still get optimum grip.
• When cornering, the shape of the contact patch changes but the amount of rubber in contact with the road surface stays the same. 
• MICHELIN Pilot Super Sport has benefited from the latest digital simulation software used in the aeronautics and automobile industries. 
These state-of-the-art tools have enabled the forces and temperatures to be more evenly distributed over the contact patch.

Superb performance, confidence in grip both in the wet and dry

Reviewed by Munners - January 3, 2023 for a purchase of December 17, 2022

Just replaced the BMW* OEM Pilot SuperSports with a brand new set. I have just purchased a 2017 M240i with 13k miles on the clock, amazingly the original tyres still had between 5mm and 6mm on each tyre. The date on the tyres were 24th week of 2017 which is why I changed the tyres with so much tread still left! One tyre had started to have small cracking on the outside edge too from I presume being parked up with loss of pressure and sun damage. The first set of 5 year old rubber gripped the road like nothing I'd experienced before, I have an open diff not the LSD. The car would, I would best describe as start squirming up to speed switching the power between each wheel but without loss of traction or the dash traction control light flashing up. Even in the wet it would put the power down without loss of traction and at a rapid pace, stupid inputs would obviously lose traction. I'm still wearing the new set in, however I do feel the difference when cornering. The old set had a rounding off on the outside which are traits of Michelin Performance tyres due to the softer compound on the outside edge so felt a massive change in the cars eagerness to turn and give me confidence to carry more speed if I wanted to. The only other tyre to give me that trust in the ability of the tyre was a set of Toyo Proxies on my Honda CRX SiR back in 2002. The front tyres however only lasted me 3 months being such a soft compound and even though the tyre tread pattern looked like it could clear water quickly and away from the road, they were awful in the wet. Potentially the Pilot Sport 4 tyres maybe a better choice of tyre as the PS4s aren't available on the M240i 18" standard alloys, the PS4 tyre is better in the wet and can't remember but maybe less resistance too so savings on fuel. They however don't have the Twaron composite material to keep from bulging in the centre keeping the tyre flat and improving contact at high speed. I'm going to do some track days so this is why I chose the SuperSports over the PS4 tyres.

Love these tyres, great feedback if avoid the runflats. The grip in summer is alotof fun would definitely recommend over the pirrellies or Bridgestone equivalents. Running on a m240i.

Superb tyre!

Reviewed by MUMU - July 13, 2022

Got them as standard on my Ford Focus RS; they've done 32K kms so far, including a track day, and many kilometres of spirited driving, and still have at least 40% tread left - unbelievable. Superb grip in the dry and wet! Noisy on coarse bitumen, by very quiet on hotmix. Highly recommended :)

Side wall cracking PSS

Reviewed by FFFF - April 2, 2022

I have a BMW m140i and 2 sets pilot super sports have shown side wall cracking. The tyres after a few years look like they are very old. Not happy at all. These tyres are great for 6 months and then they go plastic. Steer clear of this tyre.
