Michelin rolls out Latitude Tour HP crossover tire
Michelin North America Inc. has officially introduced its Michelin Latitude Tour HP all-season tire for crossover vehicles.
The Latitude Tour HP's outer tread area contains a compound that is designed to maximize dry pavement grip, while the tire's center tread compound is designed for bad weather performance, say Michelin officials.
The tire also contains Michelin's new SecureLock tread blocks that "close and lock under hard acceleration, braking and cornering to deliver better overall performance."
The Latitude Tour HP is available in 15 sizes ranging from 17 to 22 inches in diameter, including popular replacement sizes for the Mercedes-Benz R Class and M Class.
