Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP. FEATURES AND BENEFITS: Shortened braking distance; Summer weather traction; Longer lasting tread life; High speed controllability; Run flat tire model; . OVERVIEW: The Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP tire is a high performance, summer tire manufactured for passenger vehicles.The tires Zero Pressure (ZP) technology maintains its ideal tire shape after air pressure loss, which allows the tire to be driven on for 50 miles up to the speed of 50 mph. It allows the tire to withstand the weight of the vehicle and its passengers for a limited temporary performance. This allows the driver to safely arrive at a nearby location where the damaged tire can be fixed or replaced. These tires cannot be mixed with regular tires on the same vehicle.This summer tire offers excellent dry and wet weather traction and grips the road well in these conditions. The optimal tread design increases the number of biting edges gripping the road in summer weather conditions, which guarantees a safer drive. However, it will not perform well in winter weather. The circumferential and smaller lateral grooves in the tread pattern eliminate water from beneath the tire and prevent hydroplaning.Michelin used its data from motorsport racing, particularly from Le Mans, during the manufacture of this tire, which enhanced its performing ability. Its Bi-Compound tread compound, which employs two compound types across the tires tread for divided dry and wet performance, boosts the tires performing ability and dry and wet weather traction. The tires lowered overall weight also improves its performance and makes its handling easier for the driver, while the Bi-Compound also enables a shortened braking distance.The Pilot Super Sport ZPs structure is reinforced with the Twaron Belt package, which reduces the possibility of punctures and provides high speed durability. This special structure, along also slows down the treads wear rate, while the Variable Contact Patch 2.0 Technology ensures even wear throughout the tire, extending its life in the process.
