Tire Highlights


Variable thickness sipes provide additional biting edges in low–grip conditions to improve wet and snow traction, but lock together in dry conditions to provide crisp handling and longer treadwear.


Unique biting edges in the grooves grip snow for better acceleration and braking in snowy conditions.


Helio compound with sunflower oil helps to increase traction at low temperatures, while extreme silica technology provides exceptional wet grip.


Asymetric tread pattern and Variable Contact Patch 2.0 design result in strong dry performance combined with long tread life.

      Won't Last to Mileage Estimate

            Comments about Pilot Sport A/S 3:

            Bought Michilin Pilot Sport AS+ May 2012 with 45,000 mile warranty (235/50ZR18). Have driven 35,500 miles and purchse retailer now says I need new tires. Driving is around suburbs with no long road-trips and the car has been into purchase retailer 7 times for rotate/balance/align as required. Warranty appears to be much less than was represented by sales retailer at time of purchase. Product has lasted 21% less than the expected miles and yet the customer satisfaction credit is only11% of the purchase price of the new tires or 9% of the original tire price (sales retailer is recommending Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3 235/50R18 for my current replacement). I liked the way the car drove with these tires. Especially happy with snow performance as they handled well. But I am upset that the verbal warranty explanation was so much better on the sales end than the reality on the other side. It seems to me that the customer satisfaction discount on the new tires should be double what it is.

                        These tires are a little expensive but they are very quiet, extremely sticky and very smooth. Used to have a vibration but not with these tires. Went completely away. Definitely very happy and can't wait to see how many miles they last. Only put about a 1,000 miles on them so far. Very impressed.
