Why the Michelin Pilot Super Sport Will Change the World

Wednesday, May 11, 2011 by Hunter Leffel
OK Michelin Pilot Super Sportit may not change the world, but it will reset the bar for performance cars. After seven years with the Pilot Sport PS2 on the market, Michelin finally felt they had a product worthy to replace it. The excitement has been building and with supply recently hitting our warehouses, the early adopters have received their orders. 

We had the honor of being invited to Dubai to experience first hand the new Super Sport in action. Going up against the latest offerings from the competition, the Super Sport presented more grip and better response. For a test report, read "Michelin Pilot Super Sport Introductory Track Drive."

Perhaps more telling is how the tire has been used in real world experiences including the 2011 Tire Rack One Lap of America. Ten venues and over 3,500 miles stretched across eight days, testing not just man and machine but also the rubber. Top wet and dry skid pad (both held on Tire Rack's test track) winners and the overall champion won using the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. Perhaps most impressive, the Super Sport set a new dry skid pad record at 1.120g. This shattered the old record of 1.098g. Read more information about the 2011 Tire Rack One Lap of America.

Take a look at what some of our customers have had to say about the Michelin Pilot Super Sport:

"...I have three criteria for a tire... quiet and comfortable ride, responsive turn in, and high cornering grip. The PSS is the very best tire I have ever owned in this regard." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2011 BMW M3 Coupe Competition Package

"... I just won my class at the 2011 One Lap of America. Was 2nd on the wet skid pad test with .825G, the winner, also on Super Sports had .826g. impressive." -- 2011 One Lap Competitor, 2001 BMW M Coupe
Tire Rack One Lap of America
"...Wonderful tires. After 3 G sedans I finally can buy a tire worthy of the car itself." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2009 Infiniti G37 Sedan Sport

Why are the fronts for my G37S (225/50ZR18) $168 and the rears, which are not that huge of a difference in size/aspect (245/45ZR18) over $100 more at $279? Other tire brands don't have this huge price difference
