Comment:
I bought 4 Latitude X-ice tires a couple of years ago for my Honda Pilot. I am quite disappointed in the traction I get on snow and ice with these tires. They are only marginally better than regular all season tires. <br />I see the tires here are Latitude Ice-X XI2, not sure if this is a different model than the ones I have... Mine are Michelin Latitude X-Ice; I don't recall if mine say XI2, but I do recall that they were among the highest rated by consumer reports two years ago, as are these. <br />I am hoping that General starts making their Altimax Arctic tire in a 235 size, because, having them on my Honda Civic, I see a world of difference in how much better those tires grab the road in wintery conditions!
