Thank you. I was however looking for a tire with more of A/T feel. Looks like i can go wirth a 245 60 or a 255 55 as well.
What do you mean by "a tire with more of A/T feel"?
The Geolandar A/T G015 is an A/T type tire.
Or, do you want your Pilot to look like a monster truck?

[I do not want a " monster truck" but the geo may be an A/T in designation but in my opinion are more of an H/T. I need a more aggressive tread as my driveway is a mile long and off rd. Thank you though.

Erik,
Don't sleep on the Geolander, while it is not a hybrid A/T-M/T like the KO2s or Duratracs, it is a very well respected tire on the Tacoma, Silverado and Pathfinder (the older, off road capable ones) forums that I have been a part of. Sure, it caters a little more towards the light off-roading side of the A/T spectrum, but that's perfect for a vehicle like the Pilot that you want to take down some light trails.

I have to admit Geos are a great tire for the camping style traveling .. I have used them traveling trails Like this one
no complaints

'Hoe is right... I'm not sure I'd be doing anything that much more difficult in the Pilot as it's just not built for rock crawling and hanging tires in the air and all of that... soft roading is about the extent and the Geolanders will certainly aid in traction.

Another point to consider, in vehicles that aren't built for heavy off roading it is not uncommon to experience part failures when exposed to heavy off roading. Putting all of the torque through one wheel that has grip can stress CV joints, small axles, diffs, etc. beyond what they are capable of handling.

I put the Yokohama Geolandar G015's on mine. I really like them. They are definitely a good balance between aggressive and low noise. I used the original size. I was very pleased when they ended up being rather quiet.
