Michelin Latitude Tour
Initial Review: 100 miles on tires
February 04, 2013

We have a 2011 Honda Pilot LX 2WD. We bought these in 245/65R17 to replace the awful factory Goodyear Fortera HL in the same size. The ride is great and they are also extremely quiet. All we can hear now is wind and engine noise, instead of the groaning Fotera HL tires!

We bought these tires despite modest reviews for 03-08 Pilot application. The reason is that 03-08 Pilots' application is 235/70R16, and the Latitude Tour in that size is a Ford factory spec tire, with 15% less initial tread depth (11/32 vs 12.5/32). The Ford spec tires in 235/70R16 also lacks Michelin's Green X eco feature. We believe this is why Consumer Reports rates these tires much better than the reviews at tirerack.com would indicate.

We will update again once we put 10k miles on them.
