The Michelin Pilot Sport 3 , the third in the Pilot Sport series, is a performance summer tyre, ideal for sports vehicles and high performance saloons. The tyre has an optimised profile with “Anti-Surf System”, which allows it to slice through extremely wet surfaces and standing water. The tyre retains some of the characteristics of the asymmetric tread pattern of its predecessor, with slight changes in the sipe pattern. According to a test conducted by TÜV, the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 has better grip on bends, and a shorter braking distance on wet roads than the Pilot Sport 2. The “Green X” marking on the sidewall of the tyre indicates its energy efficiency, highlighting Michelin's commitment to reducing CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. As a result of experience gained from 13 consecutive successes in the Le Mans 24 Hour Race, Michelin has also introduced the “Green Power Compound”, a revolutionary rubber compound that gives the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 its excellent grip, fuel efficiency and longevity.
