I installed the Latitudes and have about 16k miles on them. They are much smoother and quieter than the Hankooks. They hardly show any wear. I'm in Southern Cal so no snow and they handle well in the rain.

The OEM Hankooks lasted about 32k miles but I replaced them a few thousand before the wear bars due to an upcoming trip.

Having mostly used Michelin tires for the past 40 years installed the 65k warranted Latitude series and got 33k out of them to even and consistent
wear bars. No signs of alignment or inflation problems. They provided a very quite and comfortable ride but was very disappointed with the mileage. After much discussion with two tire stores and their distributor and threat of escalation into Michelin I received a 48% warranty refund. That was the mathematical warranty adjustment and was what I requested.

You are not going to get much if any help from your retailer.

I replaced the Latitude series with the MS2 series which I had got 80k miles out of on an Expedition. Super quite and no initial wear indications.

Hi to all. I have had Michelin on borrego this makes six now & no more, two of them went at 27,000, they replaced them for half of new one & the other two will have to be replaced at about 32,000. They were the 70,000 ones. Had two good years on pickup front they had 69,000, paid $98.00 for them. Told Michelin no more for me at $245.00, they told me if get 40,46,000 that's about all you well. Hope you have better luck then I did.
