Greatly Disappointed! Tires are on our SUV Crossover. We have only 22,000 miles on these tires. Belt is coming out on one!!! Not what was expected at all! Thought we got a good deal, but not since we have to do this again, just two years later!

2nd set of Lattitudes on a Honda Odyssey. Thought the first set may have been an anomaly, however both sets have provided very poor winter traction on ice & slush - quite contrary to advertising & on-line reviews. Friends have much the same (poor) experience. Spouse's Blizzaks have far better winter performance. Lesson learned - don't believe everything you read - talk to actual drivers about their experience
