Track and competition tires are designed for racing enthusiasts to maximize performance on racetracks, while some are also suitable for street use. These tires are not meant for winter driving. Using slick type tread designs and specialized rubber compounds, competition tires are build for ultimate acceleration and cornering, but have modest wet capability and short tread wear life.

Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect tire was developed to help drivers maximize their vehicles' on-track performance and lower lap times. Designed as one component of the Track Connect system, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect tires accept a special sensor that relays tire temperature and pressure information to a console-mounted receiver. Using this information, the Track Connect app provides personalized inflation recommendations and adjustments based on the track, vehicle, ambient weather conditions and driving style. It's like having a personal Michelin tire engineer with you every time you go to the track. Like all summer tires, the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect is not intended to be stored, serviced, nor driven in near-freezing temperatures, through slush, snow or on ice. The tread of the Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect features an asymmetric design and utilizes Michelin's Bi-Compound Technology, with different rubber compounds on the tread's outboard and inboard regions. The expansive outboard shoulder features a High Molecular Chain tread rubber that has been specially designed to deliver exceptional grip on curves, especially in tight corners. Michelin's Track Longevity Technology 2.0 reinforces the outboard shoulder with a special, abrasion-resistant rubber to enhance endurance and longevity when used in high performance driving. The notched center ribs and inboard shoulder utilize a high-silica compound with functionalized elastomers that help deliver excellent wet traction and braking performance. Three wide, circumferential grooves work with deep, lateral notches to evacuate water from the footprint to help resist hydroplaning. The tire's internal structure features twin steel belts with a spirally-wound, hybrid aramid and nylon reinforcement. The belt package utilizes Michelin's Wavy Summit Architecture to strategically increase pattern stiffness for improved handling and stability under aggressive inputs. The Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect has a polyester casing that combines ride comfort with responsive handling, and the bead is strengthened with a high modulus rubber compound that increases the tire's lateral stiffness and delivers sporty responsiveness, as well as precision steering. A special mold tooling process uses nano laser technology engraving to produce Michelin Premium Touch Technology, a process that has made it possible to create more contrast on sections of the outer sidewall using micro-geometry techniques that absorb light. The geometry of the texture permits variable contrast to create shades of black that have a velvety feel.
