Our Bourne Centre recently fitted two BMW M4's with two pairs of 275/35R19 100Y Michelin Pilot Super Sport* BMW M series specific original equipement tyres.
A tyre specially engineered for super sport cars and ultra-high performance tuning developed in association with Porsche, BMW M and Ferrari.
The Pilot Super Sport tyre offers safety even in the most demanding conditions offering up to 3m shorter braking distances on wet roads compared to their Pilot Sport PS2 tyre
Specially developed tread bracing ensures greater stability at high speed and because of its variable tension it grips the centre of the tread more tightly than the shoulders. Centrifugal force is thus better controlled and forces are distributed more evenly.
Michelin also incorporate a dual compound in the tyre. The result of this is extreme endurance even under the tightest cornering along with exceptional wet grip to mould themselves to the slightest irregularities in the road surface to break the film of water.
Another innovation built into this tyre is a variable contact patch 2.0 system that changes the shape of the contact patch but the amount of rubber in contact with the road surface stays the same.
