Michelin Malaysia today expanded its product lineup with the introduction of the Pilot Sport 4 SUV tyre for Sports Utility Vehicles.
Developed with a new compound that incorporates innovative functional elastomers and thin silica, the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV features a new asymmetrical groove design which does not only rigidify the tread pattern, but also provides excellent grip during cornering.
The tyre also features a hybrid belt made of aramid and nylon which provides a dynamic steering responsiveness, as well as rigid tread blocks and a high-density double casing ply which makes the tyre robust.
Compared to other premium SUV tyres, Michelin claims that the Pilot Sport 4 SUV offers better handling in the wet, better braking during dry conditions, and also longevity of up to 13,000 km more than its competitors.
Available at all Tyreplus and Michelin authorised dealers across the nation, the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV tyres are offered in sizes ranging between 17- and 23-inch diameters with price beginning from RM700 per piece (17-inch). Rim protectors are also available on all dimensions.
Pascal Nouvellon, the managing director of Michelin Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and Brunei said, “The Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV completes our well-established Pilot Sport family with the latest motorsport technologies and intelligent enhancements to provide unlimited driving pleasure in total safety. The new tyres feature an improved tread pattern and a new tyre compound for better grip and wet braking – staying true to the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV tagline, “Out there, you are always in control.”
