Track performance made to last. The tire that excels in faster and more consistent lap times. Compatible with Michelin® Track Connect.

*Ultimate Track Day Tire with a performance made to last

Why should you consider this tire?

Faster and more consistent lap times.(1)

The new Michelin® Pilot® Sport Cup 2 Connect (240) premium sport tire is engineered to deliver fast and consistent lap times. The tread features Bi-Compound Technology 2.0, while a new High Molecular Chain elastomer on the outside shoulder delivers exceptional grip on tight bends. On the inner tread, a new rigid elastomer optimizes steering control.

Excellent steering control and improved handling.

Dynamic Response Technology featuring a hybrid aramid-and-nylon belt ensures your steering instructions hit the track when it counts. This translates into a sharp steering response, while the new wavy summit architecture increases tread pattern stiffness for improved intuitive handling, thanks to the optimized footprint and maximized steering precision.

Legal for 'street tire' racing categories.

Increased UTQG treadwear rating of 240 and 7.2/32nds tread depth meet the 'street category' definition of many popular racing associations.

Unleash 100% of the MICHELIN® Pilot® Sport Cup 2 track potential with the MICHELIN® Track Connect system.

All tires include a pocket on the inside of the tire to accept pressure/temperature sensors as part of the MICHELIN® Track Connect system (offered separately). Live the full potential of your tires with lap times 7.40 seconds faster and up to twice the amount of laps, after 15 laps[2]. Upgrade your tire with MICHELIN® Track Connect, the first connected tire solution that feeds real time tire pressure and tire temperature to your smartphone.

*Mileage Warranty Exceptions

Split fitments – If your vehicle has tires of different sizes on the front versus the rear axles, your tires cannot be rotated as recommended. Therefore, the mileage warranty on each rear tire will cover half the number of kilometres as the standard mileage warranty for that particular tire line. ZP (Zero Pressure) tires – The maximum mileage warranty for ZP tires is 30,000 miles.

>> The sizes shown are average design values for tires measured on specified measuring rim widths. Some tires may vary from this value by +/-3% of the section height (affecting overall diameter), and +/-4% of the section width.
>> Section width varies approximately 0.2" (5mm) for every 0.5" change in rim width.
>> Tread patterns are often tuned to accomodate different tire widths. Tires for a particular dimension of a given tireline may vary in appearance from the tire shown in the photograph.

WARNING: Serious or fatal injury may result from tire failure due to underinflation or overloading. To ensure correct air pressure and vehicle load, refer to vehicle owner's manual or tire information placard on the vehicle. Serious injury or death may result from explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting. Only tire professionals should mount tires and they should never inflate beyond 40 psi to seat the beads. Before mixing types of tires in any configuration on any vehicle, be sure to check the vehicle owner's manual for its recommendations.

DANGER: Never mount a 16" diameter tire on a 16.5" rim.
DANGER: Never mount a 17" diameter tire on a 17.5" rim.

Inflation pressure increase must not exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tire sidewall. When a customer requests a replacement tire with a lower speed rating than the original equipment tire, you must clearly communicate to him or her that the handling of the vehicle may be different, and that its maximum speed capability is limited to that of the lowest speed-rated tire on the vehicle. Exceeding the lawful speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.

For high-speed driving, additional inflation pressure and possibly reduced tire loading and/or upsizing is required. In the absence of specific recommendations by the vehicle manufacturer, use the following guidelines based on those in the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization Standards Manual.

 

For speeds over 160km/h (100 mph), load and inflation must be adjusted according to the table below.
