As far as tire release news goes, this is a big deal. The long-awaited replacement for the popular Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus has landed and is now ready for shipment. Michelin's new Pilot Sport A/S 3 features an asymmetric tread pattern and high speed rating for tight and responsive handling. The tire looks to remain a class leader in terms of performance, improve upon its ability to perform in all seasons and allow for full rotational ability with a revised tread pattern.
Having driven on and tested the tire, I will tell you what the survey results are sure to say in a few months: This tire will be a front runner. It is nimble and responsive, turn-in is sharp and the tire was quiet and smooth during my time testing it.
The Pilot Sport A/S 3 is now available in approximately 50 sizes and should be considered if you're shopping for an Ultra High Performance All-Season tire (it is also provided in a High Performance All-Season option.)
