Great BUT......

Trippy1te - January 29, 2020

They are an amazing tire I bought them in August for my 350 Z I’ve driven about 5000 miles on them (now January) and they already need replacing wires are starting to show (I have never drifted on these) I have launched the car maybe four times which causes a little bit of tire spin but almost instantly grips so there’s no way that these tires should wear out this fast

    Best SCCA Cup car tire ever made

    Joseph - December 29, 2019

    I've read a lot of negative comments about this tire. I'd like to offer my thoughts, a consumer should always educate themselves about a product before purchase. I see many comments placing fault on the manufacturer for a specific product not meeting the consumers expectations. Researching a product before purchase is the consumers responsibly. The Cup 2 tire is NOT an every day tire. The manufacturer clearly states this, and DOESN'T recommend it for such use. But if you're racing SCCA or Trans-Am This is the tire to have. And yes, the tire is good for one race... Sorry that's just the nature of the beast.

        To ensure the quality and performance of your tyres please download our safety recommendations to learn more about about our safety and usage advice.

        MICHELIN Pilot Sport CUP 2 is a track tire (semi slick tire), which meets the legal requirements for use on the public highway.
        This tire has been specifically optimized for use on a dry track. On a wet track or road, where there is a risk of aquaplaning, adapt your driving style by reducing your speed and leaving the safety and driver assistance systems connected

        For track and road handling reasons, the fitting of a set of 4 MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 is strongly advised

        Before Fast Circuit Use always
        o Verify the condition of your tyres, checking for wear & damage
        o Build up to the temperature of the tyres gradually by a few more moderate paced laps

        After running on the circuit and before returning to the road, consider
        • Always check the condition of your tyres to ensure they are safe and comply with relevant local traffic laws
        • Allow the tyres to cool ideally before making appropriate pressure adjustments
        • Re-adjust your cold tyre pressures in accordance with the pressure recommended by the car manufacture
        • If they have been disconnected/switch off, re-instate all safety systems, driver aids and tyre pressure monitoring

        CAUTION !
        • If not used for a prolonged period of time, remove the MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres (mounted on their wheels) and reduce their pressure to half their normal value to store
        • Store tyres in a clean, dry area, away from direct sunlight and above 0°C (32°F) in accordance with the information provided by Michelin in technical documentation or their website
        • Do Not use, store or handle MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres at ambient temperatures below -10°C (14°F)
        • Under these conditions the tyre components can degrade, resulting in reduced performance, and at low temperatures can lead to cracks in the tyre compound and hence reduce potential in use
        • Never use a tyre with cracks, breaks or damage to the sidewall or tread. If in any doubt please consult your local Michelin technical department
        • When using for long periods in an intensive manner on circuits, please be aware that damage can occur to the tyre and its carcass from regularly running over the kerbs at the side of the circuit
        • In the case of prolonged running over the kerbs (or also running heavily off the track) it is advisable to verify the internal condition of the tyre and it’s construction by demounting it from the wheel and having it professionally inspected for any damage, both on the interior and the exterior of the tyre
        • It is advisable to visually check the tyres after each run, prior to going back onto the circuit
