MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4 S News

Discover the genuine passion and exceptional drives with the latest MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4 S content and news from around the world.

Michelin introduces its newest ultra-high-performance tyre – the MICHELIN Pilot® Sport 4 S at the North American International Auto Show.

The product succeeds the MICHELIN® Pilot® Super Sport, which is widely recognized as the industry-leading ultra-high-performance tyre for original equipment and replacement applications.

“When manufacturers design and build the greatest cars, they overwhelmingly choose Michelin and the Pilot tyre line to connect them with the pavement and enable the very spirit of the machine,” said Jean-Dominique Senard, CEO of Michelin Group, in a press conference at NAIAS.

“The Pilot Sport 4 S will be the next great tyre in our Pilot family line-up, with more than 60 original equipment fitments currently under development.”

Designed for sports cars and high-performance vehicles, the tyre combines the best aspects of the Pilot Super Sport with key attributes of the Pilot Sport Cup 2. The Pilot Sport 4 S solves the pleasure and safety equation for performance enthusiasts, offering unprecedented driving pleasure, exceptional steering precision and tremendous directional stability, while also providing maximum grip on wet or dry roads.

Commissioned third-party track tests in Germany against five top ultra-high-performance tyre competitors ranked the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S first on the performances:

- first in dry braking1

- first in wet braking2

- first in dry lap times3

Michelin is involved in motorsport disciplines worldwide and uses competition as a laboratory for accelerated development of tyre technologies, which are then used in the development of its production tyres. Data collected during racing, mostly from confidential tyre technologies or rubber compound recipes, enable Michelin’s engineers to validate their findings. The Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S uses construction methods and materials directly developed in competitions such as the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and its flagship event the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Formula E and the World Rally Championship(WRC).
