Michelin® Latitude® Sport tires use many of the same technologies as our ultra-high performance sports car tires to help deliver extraordinary handling and dry grip to the most demanding sport performance crossovers.
Features and Benefits:
Hug The Corners
Michelin® Latitude® Sport tires use the same tread pattern and tread compounds found in our most extreme performance sport car tire — the Pilot® Sport PS2™ tire — for unparalleled dry grip.
Cruise With Confidence
Michelin uses FAZ Technology™ to precisely place reinforcing filaments under the tread for a stable feel and crisp, confident handling at high speeds.
Trust The Experts
The Latitude® Sport tire is chosen by some of the world’s most demanding vehicle manufacturers for its performance on SUVs and crossovers, including Porsche and Audi.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
