The Michelin Latitude Tour is a premium high performance tire designed for drivers of luxury pickups, SUVs and crossovers. It’s the longest lasting, most fuel efficient tire in its class. On top of that, it combines fantastic all-round performance in dry and wet conditions with unbelievable value for money.
The Michelin Latitude Tour is an excellent tire for dry roads with good handling and steering response. On higways speeds, it feels most secure. It delivers fantastic traction in dry conditions while still giving you that extra grip you need for aggressive driving.
The tire’s tread is designed to enhance stability, handling and traction on dry, wet and wintry road conditions. The Latitude Tour features an all-season silica-based tread compound. It’s molded into a symmetric pattern and utilizes Michelin’s Green X Technology and MaxTouch Construction. This gives it a wider contact patch and a lower rolling resistance for increased fuel efficiency.
It uses rounded and stable shoulder blocks which, when combined with a continuous center rib, make the corenring and steering response excellent. The steering feel is very predictable and provides a reassuring feeling of control and grip at any speed.
Overall, the Michelin Latitude Tour produces a smooth, comfortable riding experience, however, road noise increases as the tire ages. These tires produce a smooth ride that absorbs bumps well with minimal road noise. The tire’s internal structure features two steel belts which improve ride quality.
The Michelin Latitude Tour handles quite well on wet pavement. Wet performance is enhanced through the tire’s circumferential grooves and extra sipes around the tread. This feature helps the Latitude Tour remove water away from underneath the tire’s tread. It also provide added grip on snow covered surfaces.
The only area that the Michelin Latitude Tour needs improvement is traction on snow and ice covered surfaces. It simply doesn’t have the high levels of grip, braking and acceleration as the best tires in the class.They’re very slippery in deep snow and breakaway on ice can be unpredictable. But on dry and wet surfaces, the Latitude Tour delivers unbeatable levels of traction and handling with superior steering response and confident cornering capabilities.
The Michelin Latitude Tour is easily one of the best performing and safest truck / SUV all-season tires on the market today. It balances longevity and fuel savings with terrific traction, handling and braking in both wet and dry driving conditions.
Michelin back the Latitude Tour with a 6 year or 65,000 mile tread guarantee with a 30-day customer satisfaction guarantee and has sizes available from 16 to 19 inches, with prices starting around $139 and up.
