Latest Michelin Tires Certified on the Ferrari FF

Following a successful partnership in the past, Ferrari has once again chosen Michelin as one of the tire providers for the new Ferrari FF four-wheel drive shooting brake model. The tire in question is the latest generation of Michelin Pilot Super Sport which will be fitted as original equipment on the Ferrari FF.

The main challenge faced by the company when creating this new tire was to combine enhance driving pleasure with ensuring maximum safety, even in extreme conditions. This combination of emotion and safety was a decisive factor in the development phases between the two companies.

“The potential of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport, designed for highly demanding technological advances enabled the tire manufacturer to obtain 13 consecutive victories at the Le Mans 24 Hours. The resulting experience was transferred to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport tire for the benefit of the motorist looking for enhanced driving sensations,”
says Michelin.

In order to provide road holding and braking, and taking safety a step further, while still ensuring high mileage, Michelin combined three technologies, two of which are directly derived from the motorsport tires used at the Le Mans 24 Hours. These three technologies are the Twaron belt, the Bi-Compound tread and the Variable Contact Patch 2.0.

The Twaron belt is a high density fiber which enables outstanding tire stability at high speed. Bi-Compound is a technology which consists in distributing two different rubber compounds on the tread, while Variable Contact Patch 2.0 means that the tire surface that is in contact with the ground remains the same during cornering.

The tire sizes fitted to the all-wheel drive Ferrari FF are 245/35 ZR 20 on the front and 295/45 ZR 20 on the rear.
