I was searching for new tires for my 06 Rover and cant seem to pull up any Michelin Synchrones which are currently on there now. Did they change tires for 2010's?

and as I understand, several types of Latitudes. I imagine (and have read on some thread on this Forum) that Michelin has designed the Latitudes to be as good or better than the Synchrone. I suppose as we transition to them through attrition, we'll hear more about their performance.

I've not had Latitudes on my LM, but I've had them on my P38 for about 2-3 years now (265/60 18's). Great tires. Good on dry, great in wet and good in snow.

I drive to my ski home almost every weekend in winter. 120 miles highway, 40 miles 4 lane mountain roads, 30 miles 2 lane winding up and down mountains. All topped off with a 3 mile treck on a single lane dirt road up a mountain then up an icy 50 meter driveway with a 90 degree turn at the apex. I have literally had to plow through snow up to the hood with the drifts. You can not pass the guard gate the final 3 miles without a 4 WD or chains in winter. I can confidently drive spirited on the interstate and in the deep snow. I did tons of reasearch and this and the WRG2 were the only 2 that fit the bill. Fortunately, the WRG2 was not released in my size at the time or purchase so the gave me the Vredestein at the same price. I will buy them again. Check out this link if you havent seen it.
