Michelin Performance Tires Featuring Pilot Sport PS2

Michelin TiresThe Michelin Pilot PS2 is one of those great tires that has been around for a long time.  Tire Rack Has Tested the PS2 four times since 2004.  The Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 has never ranked lower than 2nd with two 1st place finishes and two second place finishes.  Pilot Sport PS2 is used as an original equipment tire on some Audi, BMW, Dodge Viper, Ferrari, Mercedes, and Porsche  models.  The Pilot Sport is also available as ZP (Zero Pressure) for models with Run Flat Tires.  The Michelin Pilot Sport has been Tire Rack Tested, Consumer Tested and Time tested and still remains one of the premier tires with in the Max Performance Summer Tire. 

The PS2 features side-by-side tread rubber compounds molded into an asymmetric design with large outer shoulder blocks and continuous intermediate and center ribs to tune the outboard tread for dry traction and inboard tread for wet traction.  A distinct advantage of an asymmetric tread pattern is the ability to design the tread patter for specific forces the tire will deal with as the tire engineers know how it will be placed on the vehicle.  Another advantage over a directional tread pattern is the tire may still be rotated side to side on a staggered set up or crossed front to back on a non staggered set up. 

The right side of the is the Outboard and the left side is the Inboard on the picture to the left.

The Michelin Performance tires are a great option for the enthusiast that wants to have a tire that has consistently ranked well in consumer survey results and Tire Rack Tire Testing.  It is easy to recommend the Micheline Pilot Sport PS2 as a great Max Performance Summer tire.  Check out some of the Michelin tires reviews on the PS2.

Is it OK to have a PS2 mixed with a Pilot Super Sport on a 2009 Dodge Viper ST 10 (rear)?

Larry, Per Michelin, we do not suggest mixing and matching the Pilot Super Sport tires. They are meant for use on all four corners in a matched set.
