The Latitude Tour HP ZP (Zero Pressure technology) is Michelin’s Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season run-flat tire developed for the drivers of premium crossover and sport utility vehicles that offers temporary extended mobility (up to 50 miles at 50 mph) in the event a puncture results in complete air loss. Used as Original Equipment by BMW, Latitude Tour HP ZP tires are designed to combine run-flat confidence and comfort with handling and all-season traction, even in light snow.

The Latitude Tour HP ZP features an all-season tread compound molded into a symmetric pattern that helps balance dry, wet and wintertime traction. Stable shoulder blocks and a continuous center rib boost responsiveness and highway stability, while wide circumferential grooves help resist hydroplaning and 2-D Active Sipes improve handling in rain and snow.

The tire’s internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced with Michelin FAZ Technology (Filament At Zero degrees) that winds polyester and aramid/nylon cords spirally under the tread area to provide a stable feel and crisp steering, while polyester cord reinforced sidewalls enhance ride quality.

Sidewall reinforcement using low hysteresis rubber provides self-supporting strength at zero pressure, helps combat sidewall damage, and maintains cool temperatures to allow longer zero pressure driving while a special bead design helps tires stay securely seated on conventional rims.

  1. 51,000 miles on these tires that were always maintained (rotated and pressure checks) and they are dead in the water, 2/32. I bought these after reading everyone else’s reviews on how many miles they had put on them. I am mostly on the highway and really only use my truck to either tow my boat, go hunting, or go to work, which is almost all highway miles. Maybe the low life is due to the towing of the heavy bass boat, I dont know. Discount Tire has already told me that Michelin will give me approximately $60 towards a new set of these tires since I didn’t get anywhere close to their warranty of 70,000 miles, but I feel $60 is a bit of a cheap out when I bought them for $1000. Not sure I really want to go with high mileage tires ever again. Maybe I’ll just get the cheapest tires I can find.

  2. 30,000 miles on a very expensive, premium tire that should easily provide 60,000 miles or more of life. Older version of the LTX MS tires lasted 70,000+ on my previous vehicle. The MS2 are down to 3/32 with only 30,000 miles. Rotated every oil change, always in balance. Even wear from side to side and all four tires, but these are shot.

  3. I normally drive small sporty cars with great steering and handling, and these tires made our 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 drive like a somewhat sporty car… which is kind of an amazing achievement. I know/care nothing about off-roading or anything like that so I can’t say anything about that, but for street/highway use in dry or wet (I can’t say about snow) I absolutely recommend them. With the stock tires, there was a large, numb, dead spot in the steering when going straight ahead that honestly made it scary to drive in traffic. The large amount of slop in the center of the steering where you turned the wheel and nothing happened made driving… interesting… These tires absolutely transformed the feel of the truck and then I actually loved driving it, even taking corners at a sporty pace. Precise responsive steering, comfortable ride, quiet, great in the wet and dry, and wear very slowly (I’m about to replace them with another set only because of age- there’s still lots of tread left after over 40k miles). I’m very picky about tires… and these are really great without any drawbacks that I know of.

  4. I purposely chose this tire for two reasons, it was on sale for 40% less than regular price, and the weight of the tire is tremendously less than anything else I can put on my truck. I have a long bed, regular cab, hemi. I am in the electrical trade, this truck rarely sees heavy loads, but does Tow trailers from job to job. Most of the time the bed is empty outside of a few tools and a ladder. I was looking for something near stock height, but not an LT tire. Something as light as I could get. I travel mostly highway miles in South Florida at all times of day and night, which allows me wide-open throttle at times. I wanted a tire That could handle the South Florida rains, stand up to the weight of the truck, but not burn up a tank of gas going anywhere. Bottom line, I want to buy a spare set, these are that good. I have more than doubled my mileage, just buy the reduced weight of each tire, I have noticed no weakness in my light load capacity. These tires balance out with minimal weight, which reduces vibration at TopSpeed. Get the size and weight class that you need for your truck, but get these tires. I promise they are everything that you want.

  5. I had this set of Michelin LTX MS2’s on my truck for 60,000 miles. They were alright tires, but wore out. I got 2 sets of Michelin Defender LTX’s and 1 new set of LTX MS2’s, all 3 sets had terrible road force test results. I took it to the Nissan dealership and twice to Firestone, they all recommended that I get rid of these tires ASAP as they were not able to balance. I always loved Michelin, but after the last 3 sets being so terrible, I am forced to switch brands. Seems like Michelin’s quality control has been crap lately. The tires would have terrible vibration at highway speeds, generally 60-75 mph. Anything over 75 mph, the tires would be very smooth, but driving in the 60-75 mph range —-ed. My passenger seat would be shaking, as well as my mirrors. This has been one of the worst tire experiences ever!! hopefully better with the 4th set of Continentals

  6. I purchased the Michelin LTX M/S2 tires shortly after buying my truck to replace the Dunlop OEM tires. The Dunlop’s are unsafe at any speed and I removed them as soon as I could at around 1000 miles. I upgraded the shocks to Bilstein 5100s all around and added two more rear leaf springs, for a total of five leaves. Just driving 50 feet I could tell the difference in tires, no more being pulled from side to side by irregularities in the road surface. No sway like a drunken hog on ice. There is a feeling of confidence when driving on Michelin’s that was not there when on the Dunlop’s. No hydroplaning in wet weather and great winter snow handling. Clearly, these are not snow tires, nor are they designed for more than limited off-road use. They are however fantastic tires that have given me 65,000 miles of outstanding service and I feel there is another 30,000 left on them. I did add a ADDCO rear anti-sway bar and will never own a truck without Michelin tires and a rear anti-sway bar.
