I found the secret to ride comfort/handling balance on my 07 MDX Sport. Run at 30psi instead of factory 34psi. Since these are XL rated, the sidewalls are stiffer than factory calibration specs. Overall they've been a great all-season with exceptional handling and traction. The only trade-offs are slightly faster wear than all seasons and marginally lower mpg. Noise was fine and only just starting to increase now. Have another 5k left on them and I'll consider another set.<br><br>These tires have been torture tested at 10/10ths in all conditions and exceeded my expectations.

Excellent snow tire, but not a year round tire as some people have stated. Not becuase of wear or handling which seem to be excellent so far, but ride comfort is rock hard and noise is definitely more than a good all season. Had General Grabber HTS before and will probably go back when these wear out.

These Pirellis handle surprisingly well though. The only compromise that I'm bit disappointed in is ride comfort. The tires definitely crash over bumps and vibrate more at high speed (80+ mph) than the Generals which were really excellent.
