The tires that I trust for my families' safety

Lot's of site raving about this tires and they are 100% right. Exceptional wet performance. Aqua-planning is a thing of the past with this tyre. Been on the Pilot Sport bandwagon since the PS3 and now, they took it another notch. Can't wait to buy their future PS5. Show details

Worst tyres I ever bought

These must be the worst tyres I ever bought. They wear out unevenly across the tread of each tyre. And two tyres on one axle wore out at completely at different levels. I kept the tyres in top condition keeping an eye on tyre pressures, balance and tracking. But these tyres are total rubbish. Show details

quite soft rubber

I have had these on my old Merc (C300) for 6 months. Handle pretty well in the wet and dry, but very soft rubber that leaves black tread marks all over my painted driveway! (Our other 2 cars don't leave any marks...) Show details

Great handling - good buy

Handles great, not too much noise, good grip. Changed to these tyres after Pirelli's and felt a big difference - tracks better doesnt waver and comfortable to drive on. Will buy again. Show details

Wonderfull Tyres

These are close to the best tyres you can get I always make sure that they are the only ones on my car. You can never be safe enough and these are the safest.

Outstanding grip a little noisy

These tyres have astonishing traction. In fact, no matter how hard I pushed them they never skidded. A true performance tyre. The only downside is they began to crack a bit on the outside edge as they got older and do become a bit noisy as they wear. If you want to be super-glued to the road wet or dry, the Michelin man has certainly done it again!

Noisey as f

Was not happy with the OEM tyres that are on the WRX, Dunlops. Went with the PS4 as it’s supposed to be a quieter tyre. No, can’t have a conversation in the car at highway speeds, constant drone! And no it’s not the bearings, alignment and balance done twice. Tried psi’s from 35 to 45, just rubbish. Maybe if you have a nobend exhaust you can’t hear it. Very disappointed. Show details

Tyres that perform

Michelin Pilots were recommended by a trusted friend. Had a set fitted 12 months ago and I am very happy with the performance both dry and wet. The handling is well above average and they are very quiet on the highway. In terms of wear I have done about 15,000 klm and so far very little wear at all. Price wise these are outstanding value for money.  Show details

Bad, really bad

I have 4 pilot sport 4 fitted last year June, it only last 14000 km, the two back tyres were totally wore out, two front ones are a little bit better, went to the store and try to find if it's the batch quality issue and claim under warranty, they blame my drive habit. really disappointed, Michelin is off my list now, same as that store.

Changing all my cars to this tyre

Got these on a Honda Civic Type R and the grip is mind blowing. Going into a corner faster than you think the tyres can handle and they keep on gripping and turning in.
Reasonably cheap for the performance that they offer. Run them at 42 - 45psi
Prior to these i had the Continental equivalent and they are worlds apart. Show details

Questions & Answers

Bob
Bob

Why does the Mich pilot sport AS4 have one of the lowest tire warranties ( 40k ) when compared to the average warranty of 60k? For example, the Bridgestone QuietTrack, has an 80k mile warranty, which is literally double what the Pilot offers with a lower price tag. The ratings are equal, with the Bridgestone ranking higher in some areas. As a consumer, why would I pay more for less?
