The Michelin Pilot Sport 3 , the third in the Pilot Sport series, is a performance summer tire that is ideal for sport vehicles and high performance saloons. The tire has an optimised profile with an “anti-surf system”, which allows it to slice through extremely wet surfaces and standing water. The tire retains some characteristics of the asymmetric tread pattern of its predecessor, with slight changes in the sipe pattern. According to the test run by TUV, the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 has a better grip while rounding bends, and a shorter braking distance on wet roads than the Pilot Sport 2. The “Green-X” marking on the sidewall of the tire indicates the tyre's energy efficiency, highlighting Michelin's commitment to reducing CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. Through 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.
