Michelin Latitude Tires Howl

I like every thing about the Latitude 255/50R19 XL tire except the noise between 38 to 45 mph (63 to 75 kmh). The noise was there but not bad when the tires were new. Now at half wear, the tires absolutely HOWL between those speeds. The tires also generate a light vibration through the steering wheel. It's a Mercedes ML and no, I don't need an alignment, the tire wear is perfectly even.

I had a very high respect for Michelin tires before these tires. Michelin's product research had to have uncovered this fault. Shame on Michelin for putting these tires on the market.

This experience has taught me to do extensive research on-line before buying any tire.
