Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ Versus the New Pirelli Pzero Nero A/S Plus

Since its launch in early 2016, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ has been a popular choice in the Ultra High Performance All-Season category. Its crisp steering response, generous wet and dry grip and excellent hydroplaning resistance makes it a top choice for drivers wanting sporty handling that bests many summer-only performance tires. During a pre-launch demo and our initial test of the tire, we found that the Pilot Sport A/S 3+ redefined how much fun an all-season tire can be to drive on. 

An Ultra High Performance All-Season tire that can exceed the performance handling characteristics of dedicated summer performance tires is impressive. Drivers can utilize the benefits of all-season tires, such as a smoother ride, low road noise and longer treadwear, while satisfying their desire to enjoy sporty handling and quick steering response. As a result, the Pilot Sport A/S 3+ has become a top tire choice for discerning enthusiast drivers of luxury sports sedans and coupes from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti and Lexus.     

In the highly competitive tire industry, Michelin was not able to remain unchallenged for very long. Enter the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus.

The results of our 2016 test of top Ultra High Performance All-Season tires showed that the Pirelli was the standout in the test with its ideal blend of attributes and striking a nearly perfect balance that has made it the new benchmark in the category. We loved its ideal balance of handling and ride quality, with testers giving the tire top marks for noise comfort. It impressed me so much that I bought a set for my own car, an Infiniti G37 Coupe.
