MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4 ‘S’ Arrives From RM1,100.00 For 19-Inch Wheels
This is the latest addition to the MICHELIN Pilot Sport tyre family, designed for the road, on-track approved. We were given a quick introduction to the abilities of this revolutionary designed tyre that carries 2 different compounds working harmoniously together to deliver WET and DRY handling like never before in this selling price range. The tyre sizes start from 19-inches upwards. Sadly MICHELIN does not produce this new tyre in 18-inch and below.
Designed for sports cars and premium sedans, that is why Mercedes-Benz has adopted this Pilot Sport 4 S to be its original fitment tyre on its hand made AMG models which carry a lot of torque and horsepower in a short few seconds.
This all new MICHELIN tires, the Pilot Sport 4 S offers unparalleled driving pleasure, thanks to its exceptional steering precision and directional stability as we tried and tested it side by side with its nearest competitor from Italy. It provided better traction and shorter braking distance in both the wet and dry tarmacs.
Designed and delivering maximum performance and safety on all surfaces due to its optimized tread footprint which grips the road in all situations, even in the most extreme conditions, this Pilot Sport 4 S also rewards its driver with higher cornering ability as we tried around the Sentul Race Circuit.
It advances simultaneously several criteria on the same tyre – including High Level of Reactivity with ultra-reactive tread pattern design that adapts continuously to the road for optimized traction, Excellent Steering Control with the ‘Dynamic Response’ technology that ensures optimum transmission of steering instructions onto the road through a hybrid belt of aramid and nylon; Exceptional Dry Grip and Improvement of Wet Braking with the bi-compound technology using a novel hybrid elastomer on the outer side for dry grip, and a new mix of compounds with specific ‘functional elastomers’ and silica on the inner side to provide excellent wet grip and braking; Premium Touch Finish with velvet effect that creates a variety of black contrasts on the exterior sidewall, giving premium visual appearance; and Deep Rim Protector to provide protection for all kinds of wheels.
The ultra-high-performance MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4 S is now available in Malaysia to fit rims 19-inch and above, priced starting from just RM1,100.00 which pits against 4 of its immediate competitors with a better price point. This new Pilot Sport 4 is distributed across TYREPLUS and MICHELIN outlets nationwide starting today.
