OEM on our 2012 Pilot, and I've put these on our 2008 Subaru Forester XT 5MT. On the Pilot they have 5 to 10K left on them and have worn very evenly with regular rotation. On the Forester mileage 30K/est 20K remaining, also wearing evenly.

I have found these to have excellent dry and wet traction. They are far better than the OEM Yokohama Geolanders the Subaru came with, which wore out at 30K. My limited experience in the snow here in Tennessee- up to 4 of unplowed stuff- was also very good with both cars. I literally almost couldn't get either car to slide, and I do try. The Subie does not have electronic traction control, either. My daughter had the Forester in Bozeman, MT all last winter and got around without chains in some serious snow, ice, and -20F cold without incident, although no doubt dedicated snow tires would've been better. On the Pilot, we are just starting to get hydroplaning at highway speeds in standing water.

So my experience with these tires is overwhelmingly positive. I would recommend them and plan to put a new set on the Pilot when these wear out.
