Question Michelin LTX M/S vs Latitude Tour

Just wondering which of these you guys think would be the better tire to go with on the '06. Which one would be better for mostly road driving, better rain performance, and better, sportier handling?

San Antonio weather...

Excellent poll question... and based upon your discription of highway, sporty, and wet weather driving to NIOSA, the Lat may be the way to go....

in my personal experience, I've found that if its November tire replacement time and you're between Minneapolis and Chicago and your all season tire needs to cover the season with snow and ice, the M/S has been a proven winner for me...

I've got 250K on my 99 Suburban. 50K of that was with the BF Goodrich Long Trail. The other 200K was with the M/S. That truck has traveled all four seasons from Winnepeg to Boston to Hearne, Texas with nothing but the best results.

Thanks, for the poll! I'm anxious to learn from the results as I'm looking into replacement tires now for the Pilot...

If there's no winter in your driving needs, then I'd vote for the Latitude Tour. Otherwise, the LTX M/S (or 2) will be better. Actually, the LTX's aren't bad, but are a bit soft in the sidewall - so if handling is an issue, that'd be a concern.....

So I'll be voting Latitude in the poll due to your needs, but if snow, then my vote changes...

You just watch. I'll end up getting the Latitudes, and we'll have a 100-year snow storm here in San Antonio this winter... LOL

I plan on getting lat tours when I replace the stock goodyears... No snow down here in New Orleans except maybe once every 15 years, and if that happens everything shut downs cause we don't know how to handle it. Right now just 23k miles on the stock GYs so hopefullly I can wait a while.

Just had 4 Michelin Latitude Tour tires with brand new OEM Chrome RIMS installed, couldn't be happier with the upgrade of both look and handling. With the highest rating in thread wear, I think I will also be happy down the road...

Well, you know El Nino has kicked in for the Fall and WInter and that means colder and wetter than average!

I'm in the same boat with you: Will need to replace the OEM's on the wife's 08 Pilot soon. She blew one of the OEM's up on a curb last month and I bought a cheap tire to eventually move on to be a full sized spare. So in this brief interim, I'm catching up on what seems to be the best options just a few hundred miles to the side of where you are.

Michelin LTX's have been my first choice as I've had numerous sets with great performance. Now with the Latitude coming along...I'm looking. Also, have a set of Bridgestone Alenza's on my old Accord that were fabulous...decisions, decisions. HArd pressed to move me away from the LTX's.

EDIT: Okay, I just looked up the Latitude Touring on Tire Rack and I'm impressed for the ratings. So what's the concensus on pro's and con's with a comparison of these?
- Lat's seem to be better comfort and quieter?
- LTX's have a bit more track record
- LTX2's seem to have stiffer sidewalls...good and bad

Why did you put LT/SUV type tires on a car?

My mistake...I should have said "Turanza". Dang 'za suffixes from Bridgestone.

But they are still a great set of tires.

Mich Lat's at just over $100/tire?!

Just pulled this up on tire rack...someone tell me if I'm looking at this right. 255/65/16 for what ends up at just over $100/tire with current Michelin offer and the special price?

Are these the correct spec Latitudes?

I have Bridgestone Alenzas on my Pilot for 30k now. Still happy with the tire.

Though I should slow down a little.....

I replaced my Bridgestone Alenzas on my Pilot at 40K with Lattitude Tours and could not be happier!

Can I bother someone with more tire background to confirm these as a correct tire option? I know size, etc. But the subtleties of some of these tires with different series offered and the speed ratings sometines trip me up a bit. I'm thinking these are simply reduced from not being as popular a size...

Another fan of Latitude Tours

Just had them installed on my 2008 in place of the stock Bridgestones. I immediately felt an improvement in ride and noise, and they handle very nicely.

Guess I should follow up. I ended up getting the Latitude Tours and they are definitely a better ride than the Ingeritys. I wanted to go a plus one on the wheel size but even with the stock rims the handling/ride is much better.
