The Michelin Pilot Sport 4 is a premium summer tyre that has consistently received positive reviews for its outstanding dynamic driving performance on dry roads. It offers precise and direct handling with excellent feedback, as well as safe wet handling with short braking distances. The tyre also boasts a fuel-efficient low rolling resistance. However, the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 has been criticized for its high price point.
According to various test results, the tyre dimensions of 225/45 R18, 245/40 R19, and 245/45 R19 have all demonstrated impressive performance on dry roads, with great potential for high-speed driving and optimal aquaplaning resistance on wet roads, despite being somewhat dated in wet conditions. The Michelin Pilot Sport 4 has been noted for its narrow margin of error on wet roads, making it somewhat puddle-sensitive and with a smaller tolerance for damp conditions.
Although the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 has been an excellent summer tyre that meets the demands of most high-performance and sporty driving styles, it is worth noting that its successor, the Pilot Sport 5, was set to be released shortly after these test results were published.
Michelin Pilot Sport 4 is made in 159 sizes, starting from 205/55 R16 up to 325/30 R21.
