Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ review

Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 review

With Michelin Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ you get amazingly dry and wet traction and handling throughout the year. This happens because the company uses high amounts of silica with Helio+ compound.  This compound is also responsible for giving great traction in snow.

The Variable Contact Patch 3.0 technology helps in delivering increased cornering grip and responsiveness, be it any driving speed.

Additionally, Michelin has tried to incorporate large circumferential grooves and variable thickness Sipes to make your ride a smooth one on wet surfaces. All in all, with a pilot you will get the performance, handling, stability that you always desired for.

Pros

  • Excellent dry and wet traction
  • Steering response is top-notch
  • Great cornering grip and stability
  • Prolonged Tread-life

Cons

  • Ride comfort
