Michelin's Latitude Sport 3 is an ultra-high performance tire designed to give enthusiastic SUV and crossover drivers the kind of traction, handling and cornering performance they want in a UHP model.
- A tire that provides excellent wet and dry traction
- Provides sporty handling
- The choice of renowned crossover and SUV manufacturers such as BMW and Porsche
In addition to using environmentally friendly manufacturing methods and improving vehicle fuel economy through low rolling resistance, as designated by Michelin's "Green X" designation, Latitude Sport 3 tires are engineered to provide unmatched wet and dry traction and cornering ability.
Michelin engineers have optimized the Latitude Sport 3's traction, braking and cornering grip.
Variable thickness sipes reduce tread block deformation, which improves rolling resistance and, therefore, fuel economy.
The tire's internal structure comprises two high-tensile steel belts reinforced with precisely placed and size-optimized individual aramid-nylon hybrid filaments that resist tire deformation and provide high-speed durability and improved ride quality.
However, like all summer tires, they are not designed for use in near-freezing temperatures, snow or ice.
The Michelin Latitude Sport 3 tire sizes are available with Michelin Acoustic Technology, which involves the manufacturer bonding a layer of sound-deadening foam to the tire's inner liner to reduce noise in the vehicle's cabin.
Overall, the Michelin Latitude Sport is among the best ultra-high performance summer tires in its class. If you own an SUV or crossover and want a predictable tire and performs exceptionally well on wet and dry surfaces, this tire is for you.
