Hello
What are people doing for snow tires with their Pilot Elite AWD?

Do you just get snow tires, or do you get a separate set of wheels and tires?

Do you still go with 20" tires?

Regards
Ted

Do you drive in "snow country" conditions all week (and winter) long, or just on weekends?
What is you total annual mileage?
How long do you intend to keep this Pilot?

Month long winter trip from NE to Rockies
For such relatively limited winter use, I'd be inclined to use your original wheels and get a set of "all-season" tires with the "3-peak mountain snowflake" symbol on the sidewall, such as either the Toyo Celsius CUV or the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady. Unlike winter-only tires, these two tires can be left on and used all year long.

OTOH, if you want a winter-only type tire - and given the extensive amount of highway driving you'll be doing - I'd suggest choosing a winter tire with at least an 'H' speed rating, such as the Continental WinterContact SI:
