Last time we tested a Pilot Sport 4 it won a 16-inch test. In 2018 a 17-inch chronicle has to settle for a really tighten corner second. In this distance it couldn’t repeat a fibre of lectern finishes, nonetheless it was tighten to a leaders when it did dump out of a tip three.
As it’s some-more of a deputy for a Super Sport than a Sport 3, it was no warn to see it happiest in a dry. It was quickest around a new doing track, revelling in a quick changes of instruction during a finish of a lap. It competence not feel as pointy as a Continental, though it’s tighten and a step above many rivals.
The Michelin gave confidence-inspiring hold by a quick sweeps and a tighter turns; something few of a rivals could. It corroborated that dry opening in braking, where it was third and reduction than a metre behind a winner.
In a soppy it was reduction assured, with hold dropping divided as close increasing after good initial turn-in. A small underneath dual seconds distant a Pilot Sport 4 from a winning Continental, though it was in a thick of a five-way midfield conflict that was lonesome by dual tenths of a second.
Braking saw an improvement; it was only 30cm behind a winner. As we saw final time, it isn’t a quietest tyre and was good down a list. Fuel economy is no longer a Michelin priority as indicated by a C tag rating and a outcome here.
“A high-scoring tyre among a customers, a Michelin has had certain reviews, where traction, doing and longevity are praised.”
