Well ok. There's a vote of confidence in the Latitudes. I guess I won't try to have them changed out before taking ownership of my freshly built Overland.

The worse I'll encounter is snow, or 4 inches of mud with a hard base.

Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

I'll also be doing some slickrock stuff in AZ and Utah, but nothing as steep as trying to get to the bottom of slot canyons from the top.

I'll give the Latitudes a chance.

I am in Pittsburgh also. What part are you in?

The snow is nothing to worry about here, neither is 4" of mud. I do think they look like crap and wear horrible but they do perform good. I have 18K miles on mine and the stock tires are already wore down past the wear strips. That sucks.

Hello 77RNT.
I'm in the Swissvale area.
I get the mud when I go to WV--not around here.
Where are you located?

south hills, by century 3 mall.

I usually ride my dirt bikes or my Polaris RZR when I want to go off road, but the old 95 Wrangler and 2011 JGC get their fair share also.

Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

My latitude's tread is shot. I just hit 42k miles. Essentially all highway.
They're working on a discount since the tires are warranted for 65k miles. Has anybody else experienced this? Any better tires out there in terms of tread life?
Thanks.

I have 18K miles on my 2011 JGC and the Michelin tour's are down to the wear marks.

Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

Can I remove raised white letters from tires without turning around? Tried to get dealer to swap tires for AT but that's not looking good.

Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

I've got about 500 miles on my Latitudes right now and wondering with all this talk about the tread life being so short if it's worth swapping out now. Are the Silent Armor's and LTX M/S2's pretty comparable for gas mileage?

Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

My Latitudes were completely worn out at 50,000 kms (30,000 miles), in spite of rotating and good inflation throughout. The wear was not uneven, just uniformly down to the wear bars on all four tires. And the Canadian Michelin web site claimed they were rated at 110,000 kms. Crap!

Every other set of Michelins I've owned over the past 25 years have lasted 90% to 105% of their rated treadwear life on my vehicles. Not the Latitudes.

Michelin is in my penalty box for a least a few years after this experience. So no LTX AT/2s for me now. Instead I went with Goodyear Silent Armors, and I am very happy. Good grippy tread, yet highway quiet, as their name implies.

Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

I also got the Michelin Latitudes on my Off Road Adventure II Package. A poor tire for off road use. They are about down to the tread wear indicators at only 21,000 miles. This may be my last set of Michelin tires.
