Let me introduce the newly update Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3 +

The Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3 was introduced a couple of years ago. It claimed summer tire dry traction with all season capability. What's not to like? The tire did impress us with the highest levels of dry grip and handling response of any all season tire that we had ever tested. The compromise was just average levels of snow traction.

Michelin was not happy with that so they went back and revised the tire. So we now have the new Michelin Pilot Sport AS3 + . Michelin promises 28 percent better snow traction without loosing any of the dry or wet performance of the previous version. This should set this tire up to be the benchmark for a ultra high performance all season tire.

We were invited to Colorado Springs on a now packed course for some testing of the winter traction. Then at a different time we Red Rock Canyon about 60 miles out of Las Vegas to put the tire through its paces in the dry.

For those looking for an all season tire for their BMW I would recommend putting this tire at the top of your list.

Test Report here.
