The Pilot Sport 4S is Michelin's Max Performance Summer tyre developed in cooperation with some of the most demanding vehicle manufacturers, including Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche to utilize key technologies engineered during competition in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was designed for serious drivers looking to maximize the performance potential of their sports cars, performance sedans and powerful luxury vehicles.

The asymmetric tread pattern of the Pilot Sport 4S features side-by-side, 24 Hours of Le Mans-derived compounds. The low-void outer shoulder utilizes a new dry-focused hybrid tread rubber for improved dry handling and braking over the previous generation tire, while the center ribs and inboard shoulder feature a silica-infused wet compound designed to increase wet braking performance. The computer-modeled Variable Contact Patch 3.0 optimizes pressure distribution across the contact patch through turns, reducing hot spots and improving tire life during aggressive use

1st in dry laptime - Dynamic Response Technology creates exceptional steering precision and directional stability, while the competition inspired asymmetric tread pattern provides high levels of lateral grip.
1st in dry braking - Multi-Compound construction uses a unique hybrid elastomer developed in competitions such as the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), 24 Hours of Le Mans, Formula-E, and the WRC to promote grip and endurance on dry pavement.
1st in wet braking - Multi-Compound construction places a new mix of functionalized elastomers and high levels of silica on the inboard side of the tread for breakthrough levels of wet performance.
Experience added miles of exhilarating drives with 9% better treadlife than the MICHELIN® PILOT® Super Sport. MICHELIN® Total Performance™ overcomes the usual tradeoff of wear for grip to deliver both incredible traction and improved tread life.
