As much as we like to speed with our ride, we always need to ensure that our tyres can handle that adrenaline, which is why Michellin has introduced the new Pilot Sport 4 tyre, designed to meet the highest expectations of drivers by increasing every aspect of performance so that you’ll feel confident and safe while driving really fast, but still we would urge everyone to drive safe on the road.
The Pilot Sport 4 tyre is the first to feature the company’s Dynamic Response technoogy, which consists of a belt with hybrid aramid and nylon reinforcement that allows the tyre to withstand centrifugal forces and maintain contact patch stability at very high speeds. Furthermore, the Pilot Sport 4 aims to deliver better dry handling performance as its tread pattern is inspired by Formula E racing tyres, a new-generation functional elastomers and silica hydrophobic were added to the tyre rubber compound in order to incrase braking efficiency and traction on both wet and dry surfaces. Last but not the least, the tyre’s outer sidewall design features a premium ‘velvet look’ that was first used back in the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyre.
In terms of availability, Michelin has begin selling the Pilot Sport 4 in 23 sizes from 16 to 19 inches with a starting price of RM481, do check out with your workshop about it for more details about specific pricing for your car.
