My Pilot is nearing the time for new tires. I'm not too enthusiastic to spend $900 on Michelin Defenders although I am sure they are great tires (I have them on several other cars). I am looking at the Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT. This seems to be a new tire so there's not much info on it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Do you ever drive off pavement?
Are you in the snowbelt?
If $900 is too much, what is your upper price limit?

While I loved Michelin tires on my last set on my 05 I went to Bridgestone Ecopia, while are a bit like the old GY integrity tires except they have good grip in rain and snow. Look to at Coopers

In Atlanta, so no snow, and if there ever is snow nobody drives in it. I also never go off road.
I'd like to spend maybe $600 or so, however I am so torn because I do love those Michelins.
Have the Goodyear credit card so would get double the rebate for any GY tires, but open to other brands. It probably shouldn't be such a difficult decision but I like to over think things.

I'm not a fan of Goodyear tires.
My most recent set of Michelin tires developed cracks down in between the tread blocks.
Changed to Toyo Open Country Q/T for the latest set.
They were made in White, GA - northwest of Atlanta.

If you want a tire with a rebate, then consider the new Continental CrossContact LX25.

Discount Tire is selling them for $146.

There's a $70 rebate through the end of August.
