Michelin Latitude Tour
Initial Review: 23,000 miles on tires
April 14, 2012

Well, I thought that I finally would have a good set of factory tires that would be something that lasted awhile on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. I was dead wrong! These things are cheap and not made for this vehicle. It could be because it is a cross-over tire that they placed on a Jeep that weighs over 5,000lbs. Then again, that isn't my problem, but the ones who designed and solid these as great tires to Jeep. Never, ever spun a tire in light snow in a Jeep before. That is then again, until I had these tires. Also, if it snows over 3 inches beware! The tires load up! I lost the front end of my Jeep in a parking lot with a slight grade to it while leaving work.(Embarrassing!) I thought that my four wheel drive wasn't working correctly. It was nothing more than a bad set of tires that caused the problems. If you think that you are going to get good tread life out of this tire, think again! All four tires are worn down to the replacement bars! 23,000 miles on these tires!(21,000 miles were on the Interstate) What a joke! And if you are wondering, these tires were rotated every 6,000 miles, and the Jeep was aligned once since it came off of the truck. Still, these things wore like they are designed to be a 25,000 mile tire. Last but not least, the sidewalls to these tires are soft, very soft. You have to over inflate the tires just to get better handling and to stop roll when cornering. I am a sportsmen, and do go off road on occasion. However, after seeing the performance of these tires, I would just park next to the side of the road and walk! In my opinion, great tire for a car weighing in around 3,400 lbs. Anything larger than that, with AWD, or 4x4 should look else where for a more suitable tire.
