Overall, the Michelin Pilot Sport 5 is a top-class sport tire with dynamic handling qualities on both wet and dry surfaces. It offers agile handling with a balanced balance, precise steering response, and very good safety reserves against aquaplaning. It also provides short braking distances on wet surfaces, good comfort, and low rolling noise. However, the tire is criticized for its high price. In terms of wet performance, it may not be the quickest in heavy rain but remains stable and easy to handle with controllable reactions. On dry pavement, it exhibits good braking performance but requires slightly larger steering angles while being less agile than some of its competitors. Overall, it is a highly recommended tire, scoring only slightly lower in tests due to its relatively high price and moderate aquaplaning abilities.


Michelin Pilot Sport 5 is made in 51 sizes, starting from 205/40 R17 up to 255/35 R21.
