Introducing the new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3

New for 2013 iMichelin Pilot Sport A/S 3s Michelin's highly anticipated all-season tire, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3. With the popularity of the Pilot Super Sport, Michelin is sharing some technology found in that tire with their new all-season version.

Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires feature Michelin’s Helio compound made with sunflower oil combined with their Extreme Silica Technology to increase traction in lower temperatures and on wet roads. Molded into an aggressive asymmetric tread pattern inspired by the Michelin Pilot Super Sport, its 4-, 5- or 6-rib designs are tuned to complement tire width and feature more rubber and rigid blocks on their outboard shoulders that provide high levels of lateral grip to provide as much dry cornering capability as some competitive summer performance tires. Wide circumferential grooves help resist hydroplaning, enhance wet traction and help generate some of the shortest wet braking distances in the High Performance All-Season category.

The tire will be replacing the popular Pilot Sport A/S Plus. We anticipate the new tire will have comparable responsiveness to the Super Sport, with equivalent all-season traction as the Sport A/S Plus. They are covered under a 45,000-mile treadlife warranty, with half mileage for the rear if different size than the front.

Need to put new all season tires on my 2009 Lexus RX 350 (Pebble Beach edition) Would like a wider tire if possible, maybe 235/60R18's, or something else? Please advise.

Ron, Unfortunately we do not recommend any wider tire for the RX350 that will properly maintain the load and overall diameter needed for your vehicle. The 235/60R18 would make the tire taller instead of wider. --
