Initial Review, 27,000 Miles on Tires
October 23, 2012

I purchased these from TR in Dec-2011, replacing the factory tires. These tires now have as much miles on them as the original factory tires that gave out at 27k. I think they are good for another 20k. The only con that I can think of for these tires is lower MPG, a worthwhile trade off for a much better grip on the road. I have also not seen these type of AT tires on any other Honda Pilot. I have now noticed that these tires are bumpy when cold, especially when you the SUV has been sitting for a few days. They do warm up fast, but I would hate to have it parked at the airport for a few days in Jan and have to drive back home on the hwy at 2 AM. They have been smooth and quite till recently but are getting a little noisy and bumpy even even on a relatively smooth road. The first winter I had these tires we had a lot of snow and they performed exceptional on snow and ice. The auto 4WD hardly ever came on in deep snow or uphill, or at least not as much as it did with the factory tires.
