Meet the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

October 27th, 2015

Michelin Tires in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Michelin’s Pilot Sport PS2 is the OEM factory tire on performance cars like the BMW M3, Porsche 911 and Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, and for good reason. The Pilot Sport PS2 offers phenomenal performance in the ultra high performance (UHP) summer tire category. 
 
The Pilot Sport PS2 uses two separate tread formulations – a hybrid silica/carbon black compound begins at the tire’s outer shoulder and continues across the tread. Closer to the inside shoulder, the tread compound changes to a silica-rich formulation; together, they help provide optimum traction in wet or dry weather. The tread design itself is just as innovative, with an asymmetric pattern that features large outer shoulder blocks and continuous intermediate and center ribs for solid steering response and cornering ability. 
 
The tread compounds are both formulated for their location on the tread face, to make the most of traction in either dry or wet conditions. For wet weather in particular, the tread features lateral notches to help channel water through and away from the tire’s footprint and prevent hydroplaning. 
 
Internally, the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 features two bets of high-tensile, lightweight steel cords; the belts are then reinforced by Aramid/nylon hybrid filaments for ride quality, long wear and enhanced steering response. The result is a phenomenally sticky and responsive tire that can offer slot car-like cornering for sports sedans and coupes. Like all UHP summer tires, the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 should not be driven when temperatures are approaching freezing.
