Michelin Latitude Sport 3 Tire Review & Rating
The Michelin Latitude Sport 3 ultra-high performance summer tire is built to offer more spirited drivers the kind of traction, handling and cornering performance you look for in a UHP model. Designed to fit a wide range of SUV’s and crossover vehicles, Michelin has produced a tire that doesn’t disappoint for the most part.
With a new asymmetric tread design and unique tread compound, the Latitude Sport 3 aims to improve on the capabilities of the original Latitude Sport tire, which is an excellent tire in its own right. However, Michelin has bumped up the traction, braking and cornering grip on this latest model. It’s one reason why you’ll find it as OE on vehicles like the Porsche Macan S.
Thanks to the varied thickness of this tires siping, there is a reduction in rolling resistance. It’s tread design and three wide circumferential grooves provides exceptional wet traction and reduces the risk of hydroplaning. We’ve heard drivers state that this tire handles wet road surfaces as well as many competitor tires do on dry pavement.
Michelin offers 17 to 21-inch sizes, with speed ratings of V, W and Y available. A 20K mile treadwear warranty is also included on all sizes.
Excellent dry and wet grip, traction and braking
Cornering grip and stability is outstanding
Simply stated, the Michelin Latitude Sport 3 is one of the better ultra-high performance summer tires available on the market today. There are many satisfied owners of these tires who trust them because they deliver excellent feedback and response, are predictable, smooth and well-balanced, and offer the grip, traction and handling you want when you’re driving a high performance SUV or crossover.
Time and again we’ve heard drivers of these tires comment on how they instantly notice their superior grip on dry and wet surfaces.
On the negative side, some owners of the Latitude Sport 3 have found that this tire does not last as long as they had hoped it would. However, this is not a touring tire and can be expected in a UHP summer tire. In addition, the price is not what you might find on a cheap tire.
Overall, the Michelin Latitude Sport is among the best in class ultra-high-performance summer tires. If you’re an SUV or crossover owner who wants a tire that predictable and performs exceptionally well on dry and wet surfaces, this is the tire for you.
