Looking for suggestions for 2007 Honda Pilot, planning to replace 2 tires since other 2 are in excellent condition. Any ongoing specials or upcoming ones?

Not looking to spend too much, because planning to replace all 4 as a set upon next replacement.

Vehicle is used locally and not a daily driver either, thank you

How soon will the other ones need replacing?
If it’s truly not that long I’d get the cheapest tires you can find.

Is this Pilot FWD? This could explain why only two tires need replacing or suspension is worn or alignment is overdue.

Were the answers you got in the following thread in some way insufficient?

The Kumhos if you're north of the Mason-Dixon Line, the Otanis (or Ohtsu/Falken/Sumitomo) if you don't plan on seeing snow.

Why an all-terrain tire instead of a highway/on-road/all-season tire, such as the Otani SA1000?
Simple Tire has the SA1000 for $94, with free 3-day shipping.
They also have the Ohtsu/Falken/Sumitomo ST5000 for $91.
SA1000 is a SL with a max inflation of 44psi. If your not towing, it's a good tire. Got a set of these on a Hyundai Accent and there holding up very well.

It is an AWD and PO replaced rear two while back, while front two were done recently and that is why rear ones are needing a replacement, not immediate one but planning to start the shopping :)

Continental means I'll have two rear ones different than front ones(Mesa AP/2).

I appreciate all the advise, everyone. Thank you

Not the Sumitomos?
Well ya, that's my preference.
But unfortunately High Performance Sumitomo HTR A/S P03s don't come in a 235 70R16 for a 1st gen Pilot. 😥

Does Honda say that you need a particular/different type of tire if you're towing?
I know what I prefer when towing. I like to add a few more lbs in the back tires to keep the sidewalls off the ground. But the Otani SA1000 All Season (not touring tires) may be just fine. I know my Otani RK1000s Load range E tires do great loaded down. Just got a 2nd set. 😁 No Pilot sizes 😥

What kind and weight of trailer do you tow with your Pilot?
I have several small trailers, nothing I tow loads the Pilot down excessively. I'm more prone to pack in 800Lbs inside the Pilot, hence my dislike of squishy touring tires. I need a tire with a stronger sidewall.

Thank you, how much is the mileage warranty or rating?
There is no tread life warranty.
We got 22k miles on the set on the Hyundai. Still have lots of tread. They ballanced very well using a minimal amount of weights. I expect at least 60k.
