Cons of Michelin Pilot Sporty

Like any product, Michelin Pilot Sporty too is not free from cons. There are not much to say when it comes to its demerits but the major con is that it is sensitive to punctures. The manufacturer claims that the robust tyre structure makes it puncture resistant. However the issue is quite common and is expected. After all, it is a product made out of rubber and depends upon how you maintain and use it. Use the tyre wisely and follow the tyre safety tips so that it will stay healthy and fresh with you for long. Another one to point out is the absence of hard side walls, this makes the ride a little bumpy. But it has got flexible side walls which gives better shock absorption. However, if we keep aside these two issues, the tyre will prove to be an excellent friend of yours.
