The Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP (Zero Pressure) is the Ultra High Performance All-Season run-flat tire member of Michelin''s Pilot family of low profile, high-speed tires. Developed in the Original Equipment (O.E.) sizes for Chevrolet Corvette C-5 and C-6 coupe and convertible sports cars, the Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP is designed to temporarily support the weight of the car even after a loss of air pressure, as well as combine enhanced all-weather performance, wet grip and treadwear along with year-round traction, including in light snow.
The Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP features Michelin’s TriFusion Compound that molds three different tread compounds side-by-side using the precise capabilities of Michelin’s “C3M” tire manufacturing process. The tread compound in both shoulders improves dry handling, the compound used between the shoulders and center rib enhances wet, snow and cold weather traction while the compound used in the center rib boosts wet traction. These three compounds are molded into a directional tread design (shared with earlier Pilot Sport A/S ZP tires) that features a continuous circumferential center rib (to provide communicative road feel and reduce noise on dry roads), high angle directional tread blocks (to sharpen steering response and dry road handling) along with circumferential and high angle lateral grooves (to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction). The tire’s internal structure includes two high-tensile, lightweight steel cord belts under the tread area reinforced with Michelin’s “Filament At Zero” (FAZ) technology that spirally wraps an individual strand of polyamide across the entire tread (similar to the way fishing line is wound onto a fishing reel) to increase treadwear and ride comfort while providing high-speed durability and predictable handling. Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP tires feature reinforced sidewalls that are designed to temporarily support the weight of the car even after a loss of air pressure.
NOTE: Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP tires can be mixed with earlier Pilot Sport A/S ZP tires in axle pairs as long as the Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP tires are installed on the rear axle.
