Legal mentions: (1) Compared with MICHELIN Pilot Sport PS2. Internal tests carried out in 2010. (2) The best dry handling. Tests carried out in 2010 and in 2011 by TÜV Sud on tyre sizes 245/40ZR18Y & 255/35ZR19Y, compared to its main competitors (available on the European market at the time). (3) The fastest lap time on a dry track. Tests carried out in 2010 by TÜV on tyre sizes 245/40ZR18Y & 235/35ZR19Y, compared to its 5 premium competitors (available on the market at the time).

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

27.09.2015fromGlenn By the far the best tyre I've ever had on any car. The grip, particularly in the dry, is outstanding- endless grip really. It gives you such a responsive turn-in, and then the confidence and ability to push for the limit...which you may or may not eventually find. Very safe in the wet too and comfort and noise is excellent. Wear seems reasonable as well.
I can't recommend them highly enough. Will only ever be purchasing these again, unless Michelin develop an even better tyre..
17.09.2015fromGordon I bought these tyres to improve Grip on the previous Dunlops and they have been very good. The wet grip is significantly improved and am very happy with them.
They are a bit noisier but ride quality is unchanged. They perform very well under all conditions but can still break away in the wet, but with 510bhp not surprising! They are a big step up in performance from the Dunlops and the Pirelli P0s I have used before. Highly recommend them!
12.09.2015fromChris UK Great tyre for performance cars!!
31.10.2014fromdavid duro They are very good. I usually run Bridgestone pzeros.. But feel after driving in them these are better.
The vision of our founders, Edouard and André Michelin, has guided the
development of the MICHELIN brand for more than 125 years: making driving as simple, safe, and
comfortable as possible – first with innovative tires and wheels, followed by road maps, travel guides, and
contributions toward improving traffic infrastructure. Along with this comes a strong engagement with the
environment, as modern mobility must be sustainable and not detrimental to the environment.
Each year the Michelin Group produces more than 178 million tires in 68
production facilities in 17 countries, and it operates sales networks in more than 170 countries. The product
offerings are many: from bicycle, passenger car, truck, motorcycle, and tractor tires, to tires for 5-ton earth-
moving machines. Michelin employs 111,700 people worldwide and owns one of the oldest, most famous
trademarks in the world – the legendary Michelin Man.
Targeted development: MICHELIN Total Performance
In the development of new products, Michelin faithfully pursues the concept of
"MICHELIN Total Performance", backed by the rigorous standard of always bringing together a number of
performance characteristics into a tire, to achieve optimal results. We follow this philosophy not only in the
development of our standard products, but also in motorsports. Numerous technical innovations help to
relieve burdens on the environment, drivers, and businesses. Hidden out of sight in tire casings, tread
designs, and rubber compounds, throughout their lives MICHELIN tires show their full potential: they offer
excellent grip, long life, and reduced fuel consumption thanks to their low rolling resistance.
To better understand the conditions which tires are subjected to in everyday
use, in the summer of 2014 Michelin began a unique research project – the Road Usage Lab. Vehicles from
3,000 drivers in Europe were equipped with special measurement devices to record data about the tires'
use. These valuable findings are being employed in the development of future tire models, making them
better suited to the needs of real drivers.
