Michelin latitude

Hi I've today received a new take off set of Michelin Latitude 750R16 tyres on standard defender steel rims,I know they won't be everyone's cup of tea but I just wanted to say the service I received from cabmasters was excellent,I only ordered them on Monday and paid 95 plus vat each and even adding the shipping they were cheaper than I could buy locally to fit and supply just the tyres to my rims Thumbs Up Paul

Hi yostumpy I've taken off the old Michelin xzl's that we're past their best the tread was getting low and they were cracked I initially phoned up about the wolf and mtr combo but they've sold out I wasn't too disappointed as I've not had mtr's before so I was happy to go ahead with the steel and Michelin latitude combo,I've had both xzl's and latitudes before on my series 2,3 and defenders and have been very happy with them they both perform well in the wet and snow,they're quiet on the road and they do me for the small amount of off roading that we do and they wear exceptionally well Thumbs Up Paul ps I'm unsure whether to paint them green yet they've only been on a few days and I kind of like them as they are and Tash likes them as well Thumbs Up

I have 750 latitudes on Wolf rims on my 90, they are a good compromise tyre for on road and mild off roading IMO. 2015 Defender 90 SW
