Follow-Up Review: 48,000 miles on tires

I rarely drive off road and knew that when I bought these tires, they were my second choice as tire rack did not have my first choice, The biggest pro about these tires is tread wear after 48K miles on them there is enough tread for another 10K or so as per Firestone tech, I am on planning on buying a Ford F150 and would put these tires on it. I would prefer to put the Dest LE which are no longer available on my Pilot. The LE2 dont seem to have the same tread wear as the original LE tires so I am in a bit of conundrum. These tires do make noise now and I dont think the Pilot suspension is a good fit for these tires, but the tires 100% good

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.
