New CUV Tire From Michelin

Michelin North American has launched the Michelin Latitude Tour, targeting the crossover vehicle market.

Now available, the Latitude Tour, said MNA, “is the longest lasting, most fuel efficient tire in its class, offering greater comfort in wet conditions and a quiet, comfortable ride” when compared to the Bridgestone Dueler Hl Alenza and Goodyear Fortera SA.

Michelin said its MaxTouch Construction and special tread compounds deliver “33% more miles than the nearest competitive tire in its class,” again compared to the Bridgestone and Goodyear tires. The tire also features acoustically tunes tread elements and special siping.

Now available, the tire comes with a 65,000-mile limited warranty. (Tire Review/Akron)
