Michelin Latitude Tour Tire Review & Rating
The Latitude Tour from Michelin is engineered to deliver all-season performance and comfort for drivers of all types of pickups, crossovers and SUV’s. Using the latest innovations in tire technology and safety, the Latitude Tour also sports a lower rolling resistance and a long lasting treadlife.
An all-season silica-based tread compound utilizes Michelin’s Green X technology and MaxTouch Construction to provide a wider contact patch and a lower rolling resistance for increased fuel efficiency. The tread construction also enhances stability and handling on dry or wet road surfaces.
Rounded and stable shoulder blocks combine with a continuous center rib to deliver more responsive steering and increased cornering performance, which is an area that many drivers have mentioned as being excellent. Wet handling is enhanced through the tire’s four circumferential grooves and added sipes around the tread. This helps channel away water from under the tread, as well as provide more bite on snow covered roads.
An acoustically tuned symmetric tread pattern lowers road noise and creates a higher level of ride comfort. Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are nylon wrapped for added strength and durability, while the polyester cord body ensures increased ride comfort. Michelin backs this tire with a 65,000 mile tread guarantee, and has sizes available from 16-19 inches.
- Dry and wet traction among best in this class
- Excellent steering response and stability
- Ride comfort is exceptional
- Very good treadlife
- Traction on snow and ice
Michelin has engineered a winner in the Latitude Tour for the most part. Not only is it one of the best performing tires in this class, but it is one of the safest truck/SUV all-season tires on the market today. Dry traction and braking are outstanding, and the tire’s cornering and steering response is equally impressive. It gives you a more confident feeling while driving, whether around town or out on the highway. Wet handling is quite good as well.
The one area where we believe there needs to be improvement in would definitely be traction on snow and ice. It simply doesn’t have the grip, braking or acceleration as the best tires in this class. Comfort is like what you would expect from a quality Michelin tire. The ride is smooth and road noise is minimal. We have heard some drivers mention a little noise as the tire wears down, but that is to be expected. Treadlife is very good, and is backed up with a 65,000 mile warranty.
Overall, this is mid-upper half of the pack performing tire. Unless you spend several months out of the year driving in harsh winter weather conditions, this model makes for a good choice in touring all-season truck/SUV tires.
