Michelin Latitude Tour HP

The Latitude Tour HP is Michelin's Highway All-Season light truck tire developed for the drivers of luxury SUVs and premium crossover vehicles. Initially used as Original Equipment on Mercedes-Benz M-Class and R-Class models, as well as the European Volvo XC90, the Latitude Tour HP was designed to combine desirable ride and handling qualities with all-season traction, even in light snow.

The Latitude Tour HP uses Michelin's XSE Technology to blend handling, comfort and treadwear. On the outside, the Latitude Tour HP molds a high performance all-season silica tread compound into a symmetric pattern that has swept-back tread blocks to balance wet and snow traction, treadwear and fuel efficiency, along with ride and noise comfort. Stable shoulder blocks and a continuous center rib boost responsiveness and highway stability, while wide circumferential grooves, longitudinal grooves and sipes help resist hydroplaning and improve snow handling. On the inside, twin steel belts reinforced with Michelin's Banded At Zero (BAZ) spiral-wrapped polyamide cord supports the tread area to provide consistent handling and precise high-speed control, while polyester cords stabilize the sidewalls and enhance ride quality.
