The new Michelin Pilot Sport All Season Plus has been available for just about a year now and that is just about how long I have had my set on my Jetta. By now, they have been subjected to a full cycle of Midwest weather and driving conditions and have proven themselves versatile and capable.
My initial concern was how would these All Season tires behave in Winter weather. We have deep snow and icy roads around here that would keep sensible people home. After the usual first snow storm slip and slide, the tires, or my driving, settled down to a predictable level of steering and brake input providing a confident ride. Traction on wet roads was very impressive with lots of grip in light and heavy rain.
For maximum traction in snow, nothing beats a dedicated Winter tire and if that is what you need, you should check out our Winter tire and wheel packages. Otherwise, for a combination of very good ride comfort, predictable handling and braking in a wide range of weather, the Pilot Sport All Season Plus is a tire to take seriously.
