In the past on other vehicles, particularly those with performance tires, the choice is almost made for you. You get to de-rate the tire one speed class. Fun continues as you risk having tires with different tread deptch and remaining life. Knowing you'll end up buying the mate sooner or later, I opt for sooner and bite the bullet.
For the Pilot... I'd do a proper plug-and-patch if it's an option, rebalance, and be good with it. I'm maybe half way through the OEM Michelins, so no road-hazard warranty to help with cost either way. I don't test the speed rating on the Pilot tires. Replacements will come with a road-hazard warranty, but those typically last only 5 years from date of purchase. Even with that warranty, the servicing dealer makes the call on whether it gets the fix or gets replaced.
