Michelin Latitude Tour
Initial Review: 13,000 miles on tires
December 27, 2012

First, I keep my tire pressure front at 38-40psi and rear 36-38psi year round and rotate every 10,000 when I make synthetic oil change at dealer. Been that way for years. Also, our Terrain is AWD and recently put in three 50lb salt bags in the rear to weigh it down for our snow season. This is a premature evaluation, but wanted to write what have discovered about this tire thus far: Interstate speed in heavy rain - Rated a 7. Dry Conditions - Rated a 7. Recent 4 snow - Rated a 6. Noise - Rated a 7. Ice Traction - Rated a 3. Everybody knows this is an ALL Season Rated Tire. You want snow traction, buy a set of Blizzak's. In Snow conditions, I suggest 38-40 PSI in the fronts for FWD to get more bite and possibly better wear.

My Mustang, w Auto, has 4 winter Blizzak's and keep 38-40 psi on all 4 with 120 lbs in the trunk, for 6 years. I blow by everybody with such stability.

I plan to report again when I have 30,000 on these OEM Latitudes.
