Sport Auto Summer tyre test 2024 215/40 R18
very good
Ranked #2 of 5
Securing a commendable second place out of five contenders, the Michelin Pilot Sport 5 established itself as a formidable option in this evaluation, earning a "Very good" final rating. This tire distinguished itself with its exceptional control, attributed to its high grip levels on both wet and dry roads, alongside achieving the shortest dry braking distances. Notably, it also excelled in maintaining low rolling resistance and external noise levels. However, it was not without its drawbacks; the Michelin Pilot Sport 5 showed moderate protection against aquaplaning in curves and was criticized for occasionally harsh ride quality. Despite these minor issues, its performance was balanced and very secure across wet and dry conditions. Remarkably, the tyre outperformed in several disciplines, shining in aquaplaning - longitudinal, dry braking, dry handling, dry lane changing, wet circle cornering, wet handling, and objective wet handling, making it a top choice for those prioritizing safety and performance.

Ranked #5 of 9
Securing the 5th position among 9 competitors, the Michelin Pilot Sport 5 garnered a final rating of 'Highly Recommended'. Despite showing somewhat average performance in aquaplaning compared to its peers, leading to its slightly lower position, the Michelin Pilot Sport 5 was commendable for its low rolling resistance. However, its high price level was noted. On wet surfaces, the tyre demonstrated excellent grip and managed calm and controlled reactions, although it wasn't the fastest in the rain, it maintained stability at all times. On dry roads, its performance remained strong with good braking properties and hassle-free handling, albeit requiring slightly larger steering angles which slightly affected its agility. Notably, it excelled in wet circle cornering, showcasing its prowess in this specific discipline.
