The Latitude Tour is Michelin’s Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season light truck tire developed for the drivers of crossovers, sport utility vehicles and light duty pickups looking to combine comfort, wear and fuel efficiency. Most Latitude Tour tires meet Michelin’s Green X standards for long tread life, good wet traction and low rolling resistance, as well as provide year-round traction, including in light snow.
Latitude Tour tires use a silica-based tread compound molded into a symmetric tread design optimized with Michelin’s MaxTouch Construction to deliver more miles of treadwear. Stable shoulder blocks and a continuous center rib enhance responsiveness and highway stability, while wide circumferential grooves help resist hydroplaning and multiple sipes provide biting edges in snow. Latitude Tour tires also feature Michelin Comfort Control Technology that combines computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing to reduce vibration and road noise. The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts under the tread area on top of a polyester cord casing that enhances ride quality.
Note: While Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season light truck tires offer all-season versatility including traction in light snow, tire sizes featuring extremely wide tread widths may limit the traction this type of tire can provide in deep snow.
*The application of the Green X symbol is determined by laboratory testing on a model-by-model, size-by-size basis. Specific sizes featuring Green X technology are identified as such on the Sizes tab, as well as on the tire’s Specs tab.
