The best dry handling

• N°1 in dry handling⁽²⁾  
• The fastest tyre⁽³⁾⁽⁴⁾

Developed with Porsche, BMW M and Ferrari



• At very high speed, The Twaron® belt ensures greater stability.
• Its variable tension grips the centre of the tread more tightly than the shoulders. 
Centrifugal force is thus better controlled and forces are distributed more evenly.


• A novel distribution of two different rubber compounds between the outer and inner sides of the tread.
• Outer side: a novel carbon black-reinforced elastomer derived directly from the Le Mans 24 Hour Race.
The result: extreme endurance even under the tightest cornering.
• Inner side: the latest generation of elastomers with exceptional wet grip to mould themselves to the slightest irregularities in the road surface and break the film of water.


Whether you’re accelerating flat out in a straight line or cornering at high speed, you still get optimum grip.
• When cornering, the shape of the contact patch changes but the amount of rubber in contact with the road surface stays the same. 
• MICHELIN Pilot Super Sport has benefited from the latest digital simulation software used in the aeronautics and automobile industries. 
These state-of-the-art tools have enabled the forces and temperatures to be more evenly distributed over the contact patch.

Disappointed with Michelin Sport 4 ZP tyres

Timmo - May 7, 2021

I had 4 Michelin Sport 4 ZP tyres fitted around 2000 miles ago to my BMW 520D and had the tracking checked and wheels balanced by BMW. There is a noticeable general vibration through the car at any speed above 70mph which has been verified by the BMW dealer but the car has been checked again and all is OK. Their opinion is that this is a characteristic of the tyre. Very disappointing..

Dimensions incorrect.

Evog - July 2, 2020

I hadn't unpacked the 285/35 18 tyres when I noticed two points. Firstly the width of the drainage channels were much bigger than illustrations, huge in fact! 2x 20mm & 1x 25mm, not what I expected as I use these in dry conditions. I have PS4S currently fitted, these are 8mm wide! They are also same as Andrei's issue-310mm wide and 11" at the bead. I wont attempt to fit these to my 9.5 rims.
