OEM tyres on 2019 Hilux
Had these from new on a 2019 Toyota Hilux SR5. 265x60r18
Yes, smooth quite highway / bitumen driving. Ok on soft offroad use like light gravel roads and a bit of light sand use. Definitely not great on wet / muddy grass, but that's expected with this type of tread pattern.
Just one month shy of 2 years use, 53,000 kms, and unfortunately the poor process of the Toyota service department "rotation" system (missing rotation on 2x service intervals and then only doing front to back on same side) had excessive wear on the outside of the passenger...side wheels outer walls. Rest of the tread was ok for probably another "legal" 20,000km, but in reality in wet weather the traction control was starting to work overtime. Plus, I started to notice from about 18 months use, around the 40,000km, the tyres would give off a "squeal" in dry conditions on hard concrete surfaces like carparks etc when cornering at slow speeds. On a 4wd, these are really just highway and soft offroad tyres. An AT type variant tyre is probably more appropriate on a Hilux type vehicle. I've replaced them with Scorpion All Terrain + tyres (see my review on here)

Good ride quality
Replaced the Hankook Optimo original tyres on my 2013 Kia Sportage Platinum diesel with these Michelin Latitude HP tyres. Great improvement in ride quality. Makes the car much better for traveling long distances.
Superb, quiet and brilliant in the wet. Do not be put off by the conservative tread appearance.
So comfortable and quiet. Great wet road traction. Not fancy to look at but very, very good. Excellent wear which is surprising considering the traction on offer. A road tyre. A revelation after Pirelli scorpion at.
Purchased in for $260.
Great quite tyres
These are great set of tyres for my nissan X trail.
Bought them on offer and yes they are better than OEM tyres in noise reduction and smooth drivability.
Still to test wet weather grip but I have generally heard good things about this.
Braking distance is definitely an improvement as well
Purchased in at JAX Tyres for $616.
Cannot believe the grip of these tyres compared to factory fitted tyres.
Replacing Yokohamas after 42,000 kms for my XTraiil wanted a cheaper tyre But was convinced by tyre guy as I am about to go to the snow to put the Michelens on, more expensive than the Bridgestone duellers which were on special. I never would have believed a Tyre could make such a difference to the way my car handles, I have been driving 35 years and I am in shock.
I bought my near new Jeep Grand Cherokee with these tyres fitted and am just about to replace them after 84,000km. They have been the best tyres I have used in 50 years of driving. Quiet, good grip and excellent life span. I tow a 2.9t caravan and they have never let me down for safe handling and braking. Definitely buying Michelin for my next set!
One of the best tyres i have used.
I bought this set of tyres for Jeep Grand Cherokee 2013 diesel when the originals it came with from new had started to wear out due to the fact that I drove across the Nullarbor from Western Australia in it. After settling here in Melbourne I realised that I needed a new set of Tyres. I went online and did some research about the best durable and fuel economy saving set of Tyres and settled on the Michelin Latitude Tour set of tyres. They give you confidence on the roads especially in slippery wet conditions and so far so good, these set of tyres have been the quietest so far. I'm looking forward to getting a high mileage from it.
I havent had these tyres for long but have already noticed a difference on the road . After heavy rain I was confident that my car could stop suddenly without skidding . They were expensive but I was reassured that they will last a long time so we will see how they go as I am always on the road .
Only 5k in but very impressed
Ive been driving for 27 years on all sorts of tyres. Theses are the best tyres I've had. Solid grip, quiet and not too bad off road either. Highly recommended as a quality product.
If you can afford the difference pay it, cheap tyres last only one third the life of these.
Michelin much better than previous Pirellis
The car came with Michelin's and served us well. At the first change, we chose to go with Pirellis as they were slightly cheaper. From day 1 the car slipped and it felt like we were losing grip when it was not even wet weather. So this time when it was time to change all four again, we went back to original ones. It has great traction and feels much better driving. I learnt that the car companies pick the tyres that suit the car, best to pay a little extra and get the ones they recommend!
Not entirely up to expectations
Bought this set to replace my Oem Dunlop Grand Trak due to premature wear out at 26k km. It led the car to skip dangerously side way during left hand corner. The new Michelin corrected that and improved the traction especially on wet surface. It gives me more confident handling and reduced noise noticeable at highway speed. Too early to tell but it seems it should last longer than the oem.
Very quite and comfortable. Seem to have very good wet and dry grip. Noticeably quieter than the pirelli Verdes that came on the car. Good steering response. Seems to be a very good highway tyre. Hopefully will wear well.
Only negative is that vehicle wind noise is more noticeable as tyre noise is now less, but perhaps not a bad thing.
Oct 18 update : sold vehicle with 30k on tyres and had comments along the lines that the tyres looked to have not long been installed.
A note to discovery owners: make sure the tyre shop has a plug in ...computer that can set the suspension to Tight Tolerance Mode during the wheel alignment otherwise it will be slightly out. Bought a newer disco4 wearing pirelli scorpions with lots of tread but feel compelled to replace them with Latitudes. Apparently the larger 20 inch tyres for the discovery are out of stock! Please bring them back in stock!!!
Excellent onroad tyres for 4wd
These were well priced replacement tyres for original Michelin's that did 90,000Km.
Made in Poland & as good as original in grip & road holding in all weathers.
They have now done 80,000km. & will make 90,000km. or more.
Well worth the slightly higher cost for safety, reliability & economy.
Jeep GC Tyres
53000 km so far from the Michelin tyres and the look like easily going to 80000 with plenty of tread left. The Jeep is used for towing about half the time. That increases tyre wear so the tyres have performed exceptionally so far. Very quiet, comfortable and good grip. And they seem to hold pressure really well. I'll replace them with the same when the time comes.
I bought a set of these for my Mazda CX-5 to replace the OE Yokohamas. I have had the Michelins on the car for 3 months now and I couldn't believe the difference.
The OE Yokohamas weren't bad at all and I had no complaints with them but the Michelins are in another league altogether. Steering response, ride comfort, wet and dry grip are fantastic and they would be the quietest tyres I have ever driven on.
These cost me about $30 per tyre more than some others I looked at but it would be the best investment I ever made. It's a bit early to tel...
Questions & Answers
I have used your tyres exclusively for 43 years and recommend them to family and staff. I’m struggling to understand why the set I fitted to my Volvo XC90 Last year have only lasted 27,000 kms. I’m a moderate driver, rotate and check pressures regularly.
Tyre Power personnel advise me that Michelin no longer make durable tyres.
Please tell me if this is true and if I should change to a better value brand.
I am using michellin tyres for the first time mainly because of postive reviews.
So if it doesn't do 50k for my car (while rotating , balancing and aligning them regularly) , I am gonna switch as we...ll but not before I leave negative feedbacks everywhere on social of this happens.
My 2nd last set of tyres on my Jeep Grand Cherokee were Michelin Latitude Tour which gave me 80,000 km. I was amazed at this performance. My last set were Michelin Primacy as I was advised the Latitud...e Tour were no longer available. Disappointedly these gave me 60,000.
Hi Neil. I’ve always had excellent wear from Michelin tyres in the past. I was shocked at this set only giving 27,000kms. That’s 16,500 miles.
The dealer advised that Michelin would not give any assistance or discount on a replacement set.
Hi, a question for Michelin on fitment. The car is a 2014 Jeep Grand cherokee with 20x10 SRT rims, is the
285/ 50 /20 Michelin Latitude Tour HP a compatible fit and if so are they available? Thanks.
Can i get a 225/55/R18 size in Michellin Latitude HP tyres? Need to replace my tyres for the Jeep Cherokee Ltd 2015. If yes, how much should they cost?
Hello Mike , I don't know , you would have to check with the tyre people . cheers
