Evo - - FIRST LOOK -

The Miche­lin Pi­lot Sport Cup 2s have been tested on aero­space in­dus­try rigs – un­der­stand­able when you con­sider that at 249mph each gram of rub­ber weighs 3.8kg due to the cen­trifu­gal force. Cal­cu­la­tions showed the tyres can only sus­tain around six sec­onds of max­i­mum-speed run­ning be­fore the pres­sures in­crease to a level that risks tyre fail­ure.
