Have been monitoring and comparing the Latitude Tour closely for the first 10000 miles after purchasing them to replace a set of General Grabber HTS which were excellent on the MDX (58,000 miles, good/expected gas mileage, quiet and smooth, and good snow traction in 2-8 snowfalls)... So far the Michelin has done well, with gas mileage perhaps 1.5 mpg better, snow traction (10 snowfall) equal to or slightly better, ride slightly better, and wet traction equal. Price difference was $11 dollars per tire more for the Michelins... Only other test would be longevity on the Michelins, otherwise an excellent tire for this car at this point. Overall, either tire is an excellent choice. I will update again at 50,000 on these Latitude tours.
