The Michelin Pilot Street, Flexible sidewalls absorb bumps in the road for improved comfort at high speeds. In contact with the ground, the tire tread allows the tire to stick to the road. Its footprint, shorter but wider than a bias-ply tire, provides better grip when taking sharp turns. The 100%-silica rubber mix makes all the difference on wet surfaces and is essential for a safe and sporty use. Improved pressure distribution on the radial tire’s contact patch for more consistent wear and tire and increased performance durability over time. A design taken directly from the Sport Touring Radial lines and a tread inspired by the MICHELIN Pilot Road 2 tire.
