The rest of the competition was not sitting by idly. Advances in tire technology resulted in other brands seriously chasing the performance tire market particularly Continental and Bridgestone. Not one to sit on their laurels, Michelin and Pirelli made major changes and the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S and a new line of options for the Pirelli P Zero appeared.
Pirelli vs. Michelin - Best Summer/Performance Tires
“Best” is a subjective term. Best is determined by end user satisfaction and that goes double for performance tires. If you are a performance enthusiast and you want rubber that gives your everyday ride the grip and go its great big engine provides, you are going to have different expectations than the driver who is hardcore and spends all the time on the track. And that’s why both Pirelli and Michelin offer different tires for different needs. If end user satisfaction can be demonstrated by the number of tires purchased, both Pirelli and Michelin remain at the top of the heap for performance rubber.
