The Michelin Premier A/S All Season Tire is safe when new, safe when worn. Even when a Premier A/S tire is worn is still stops shorter then many leading competitors new tires. The Premier A/S features shorter stopping, excellent hydroplane resistance and excellent wet traction.The Premier A/S tire features Michelin's new EverGrip technology with combines excellent safety throughout the entire life of the tire.
The Premier A/S features a hidden groove that emerges as the tires tread begins to wear. This expanding groove will help to expel water, which when combined with a special rubber compound will provide excellent wet weather grip.
In the past, tires which rely on grooves between the tread blocks to expel water and maintain traction would loose grip as the tires wear. With the introduction of the this new tire, Michelin has attempted to solve this loss of traction by using a specially engineered rubber compound designed for high traction, an expanding rain groove which will emerge as the tire begins to wear and additional tread groves that will appear as tires tread wears down. The combination of these three technologies has allowed Michelin to create a revolutionary tire that will provide an excellent traction and handling both when the tire is new and as the tire wears.
