Michelin Pilot Super SportWhile Michelin loves to win and thrives on the competition, the real reason they race is to learn and use this knowledge to manufacturer even better products. The Pilot Super Sport is Michelin's newest entry in the Max Performance Summer arena. It delivers a great ride and performance that surpasses the competition. The most recent One Lap of America event saw the Super Sport set a new wet and dry skid pad record. Michelin credits their involvement in racing, specifically the ALMS, with the incredible performance and durability of the Super Sport. 

For the track or the street, shop by vehicle to find the tire that works best for your vehicle.
