SERVICE DESCRIPTION

Safety Rating is a combination of two values: Load Index and Speed Rating for P-Metric and Euro Metric tire sizes; and Load Range and Speed Rating in the case of heavy duty LT (light truck) sizes.

Speed Rating is based on the speed that the tire is designed to be driven at for extended periods of time. All tires in the in the U.S. are designed to maintain legal U.S. speed limits. The speed rating of tires must match the maximum driving speed of the vehicle.

Load Index is used on P metric and Euro Metric sized tires and denotes a tire's load-carrying capacity at a specified inflation pressure. The load index is represented by a number, the higher the Load Index Value the greater the load the tire can safely carry. Vehicle manufacturers recommend a maximum load capacity based on a recommended minimum load index.

TIRE CLASS

Tire Class reflects how the tire will be used. There are four major categories: All-Season, Max Performance, Summer-Only and Winter-Use.

All-Season tires are suitable for year-round driving in all weather conditions.

Summer-Only & Max Performance tires are specifically designed for high-performance driving. Tire compound, tread design and speed ratings all combine to hug the road and maintain grip. Summer tires by nature are not ideal for winter driving due to lack of siding to grip winter roads.

Winter-Use tires have tread compounds and patterns that are specially designed for grip on snowy or icy road surfaces. They are not suitable for year-round use. The rubber compound used will wear more quickly on dry, summer roads. It is recommended that winter tires are fitted as a complete set to avoid potential handling issues.

TREAD TYPE

Tread Type is an important consideration when choosing a tire. There are four main types: Passenger, Highway, All-Terrain and Mud-Terrain.

Passenger denotes a tread that is suitable for normal use, a good all-round tread for normal driving.

Highway is a tread type unique to SUV and truck tires. The tread is optimized for normal everyday driving on paved surfaces. These tires can be driven off pavement, but are not ideally suited for off road traction. Highway tread patterns deliver a quiet ride.

For light trucks and specialty vehicles, All-Terrain tread types provide better off-road traction than standard highway truck tires. There more aggressive tread tends to be less quiet on paved roads. All Terrain tires are suitable for everyday use.

Mud-Terrain treads are specifically designed with wider tread blocks and higher void ratios to gain traction in off-road conditions. Mud Terrain tires can generate higher noise levels and tend to carry lower mileage warranties than other tread designs.

UTQG - Uniform Tire Quality Grade

UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) is made up of three values: treadwear, traction and temperature.

Treadwear is a relative numeric score, based on manufacturer tests, showing how well a tire can be expected to wear compared to other tires. A higher score means a tire could be expected to wear better.

Traction measures the tire's ability to stop a vehicle on wet roads. It doesn't reflect a tire's acceleration, cornering, or hydroplaning performance. Traction grades range from AA (highest) to C (lowest).

Temperature grades the tire's ability to withstand heat build-up, with A being the highest grade and C the lowest.

A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 to 115 mph
C - Between 85 to 100 mph
Treadwear: 220

Performance

Drive / Ride Performance Characteristics

All tires have the following six performance characteristics, divided into three sets of trade-offs. In most cases, a tire may perform excellently in one characteristic but only standard in the other.
Standard Ride Comfort & Standard Handling
Handling: Get stiff side wall for precise steering and cornering but settle for a firm ride with increased road noise.
Ride Comfort: Enjoy a quiet, smooth ride but lose some cornering ability.
Standard Treadwear & Standard Traction
Traction: Stop faster in wet conditions but expect a shorter tread life.
Treadwear: Get long, uniform wear across your tread pattern but expect less traction in wet conditions.
Standard Low Rolling Resistance & Standard High Speed Performance
High-Speed Performance: Get increased performance at higher speeds but sacrifice some fuel economy.
Low Rolling Resistance: Enjoy improved fuel efficiency but expect less high-speed cornering ability.

Relatively smooth and quiet, good cornering, progressive breakaway and decent wet weather performance are all here in one tire. This is the first performance tire I have owned that I do not feel the need to look for another brand when they wear out. I will buy the PS2 again. November 11, 2010

Rated 5 out of 5 by I run these tires on a ... I run these tires on a supercharged 2000 BMW M Roadster which I take to the track as often as possible. The car is also my daily driver here in Western Washington, so I see lots of wet weather as well. These tires are excellent in the dry and just as good when the road is wet. They do tend to tramline a bit, but this may be due, in part, to the fact that I am running tire widths in excess of the stock requirements (mine = 245/18F ans 265/18R, stock = 225/17F and 245/17R). I run these tire all the time on the street and whenever I go to the track. They have never let me down. I also compete in the One Lap of America event on a yearly basis and have run the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 in that event several times. They have returned great numbers on the skidpad and hold up well during a long week of driving on the interstates and a wide variety of tracks. November 11, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love the quality of ... I love the quality of Michelin tires. I have had over 50 years of history owning Michelin tires. The performance of all of the Michelins has been outstanding, but I really find the Pilot Sport 2's to be exceptional. Quiet, delivering good tire wear, grip, and braking ability. Would definitely buy them, again. November 11, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by I took a well-worn set of ... I took a well-worn set of PS2's to NJMP and drove them hard on the track. Not only did they exceed my expectations in handling and braking, but after four 30 minute sessions they appeared barely worn. Having driven on all sorts of R-comp track tires, I was very surprised at how well these street tires performed on the track as well as on my 500mi drive back home after the event. November 11, 2010

Rated 5 out of 5 by PS2 on BMW E46. Excellent ... PS2 on BMW E46. Excellent tire offering plenty of grip, which is what I like. I have done a trackday with these tires and they performed excellently, offering both grip and high-speed stability. Excessive or early wear is not a problem I have noticed. I have had the tires on for three driving seasons now (store car in the winter). I haven't driven in the rain and can't comment on that aspect although I suspect they are excellent performers offering very good stability, as the tread pattern would indicate. Also, they are quiet and don't howl like another brand did after only moderate wear. Though I only have the BMW 323Ci and not the M3, I noticed many M3s with Michelins, and as I wanted the best, I feel that is what I now have. I give five stars because I have noticed no problems of any kind with the PS2, and driving agressively, they continue to perform as I like. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an excellent tire for all street and road driving and, in my opinion, excellent for occasional trackdays as well. November 11, 2010
