MICHELIN® – PREMIER A/S
PREMIER A/S Tires by Michelin®. Season: All Season. Type: Performance. The Premier A/S is Michelin’s Grand Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans and minivans looking for tires that deliver category-leading wet grip when new and when worn. And even when worn, Premier A/S tires are designed to stop shorter on wet roads than leading competitors’ brand-new tires, as well as provide all-season traction on wintry roads, even in light snow.
- Shorter Stopping
- Hydroplaning Resistance
- Excellent Wet Grip
- Lasting Winter Performance
The Premier A/S is a Michelin Total Performance tire that utilizes innovative technologies to bring multiple performances together. Combining stopping power, driving control, promised weather appropriateness and enhanced fuel efficiency, Michelin Total Performance tires reduce the influence of traditional trade-offs normally associated with tires. Michelin Total Performance is a promise of Michelin tire excellence.
1. Revolutionary High-Traction Compound
On a microscopic level, rubber strands form a finer, tighter grid that distibutes key additives more evenly. This maximizes wet traction while at the same fuel efficiency.
• Incredible wet grip from extreme amounts of silica.
• More evenly blended materials to maintain wear-life and fuel efficiency.
2. Expanding Rain Grooves
As the tire wears, rain grooves widen, maintaining their ability to remove water and deliver wet traction.
3. Emerging Grooves
New grooves - hidden in the rubber - emerge and evacuate water, adding to the ability to grip the road.
4. MICHELIN® Total Performance™
MICHELIN® Total Performance™ means the Premier A/S delivers safety, longevity, fuel efficiency, and more, without any trade-offs. The Total Performance philosophy is and always will be at the hear of every MICHELIN tire.
Premier A/S tires use an extreme silica and sunflower oil enhanced tread compound to increase traction in wet and cold temperatures. This compound is molded into a symmetric tread design featuring a continuous center rib flanked by notched intermediate ribs and linked shoulder blocks to deliver straight-line tracking and responsive dry-road handling. Michelin EverGrip Technology adds Expanding Rain Grooves around the tire’s circumference and Emerging Grooves across the shoulders. As the tire wears, the Expanding Rain Grooves widen while Emerging Grooves open up across each shoulder block to help retain more traction in wet and wintry conditions. The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide cord on top of a polyester casing ply to blend handling and durability with ride uniformity and comfort.
