I need new tires.
I have a 2009 Dodge Nitro R/T 4x4.
Original tires were Goodyear Wrangler HP P245/50R20 102S.
I'm thinking about buying Michelin Latitude Tour HP - P245/50R20 102H from SAM's Club for $245 each.

  1. Anyone have these?
  2. Will they fit up OK?
  3. Anyone know if they are as low a profile tire as the original?
  4. Are they worth a rats behind?
My Goodyear tires are shot.
I remember when I bought my Nitro, I was not too impressed with the tread thickness on the Goodyear tire. I would like something a little beefier and still serve as an all around good winter/summer/rain street tire.
I checked Goodyear and can't seem to find the originals. I guess they stopped making them. I think I would like to go with a Michelin this time.

never had the michelin latitude but have had lots of Goodyear and michelin on several different vehicles and the Goodyear seem to last longer (a lot longer).

Never had a good year I liked. They last long cuz they are hard as rocks and don't wear. I prefer a softer 50,000 Mile tire.. I like to change my tires before the tread wears out.

I put changer Cooper on my wife's 300 and love them. Cs5 touring if you want a passenger tire. Love the Cooper on the nitro too. But went with the at3. Awesome.

If you are stuck in Michelin or goodyear. I say Michelin defender.

1. Me no
2. P245/50R20 is stock size, they will fit.
3. They are the same specs as stock, so they will be very close to the same. Maybe a few MM difference.
4. Don't know, never used them.

Thanks for everyone's opinion. Today I bought a set of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP's.
I found them a few dollars cheaper at Big O Tires. After tax and road hazard warranty, I had to part with $1302.67. Ouch! That's a little pricey although they did throw in four new TPMS kits to replace the valve stems that were breaking up into small pieces. I should also mention that Michelin is offering a $70 rebate.
Only time will tell as to how well they wear however; they ride very smooth.
My Nitro now handles like a new pair of tennis shoes!

Wow is right. I asked them if they could knock off $1000.00.
Needless to say, they declined my offer.
