I just received this notification via Gas Buddy, an app that I use to log all of my fuel usage. I know my 2019 Pilot Touring has Continental tires in the 20 inch size. I don't know what brand any other models with a different size have from the factory.

TIRES
March 10th, 2021
Overcured tires may develop a break in the sidewall, resulting in sudden air loss or belt edge separation, which could lead to tread/belt loss. Either condition can cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.
NHTSA Campaign Number: 21V165000
Components: TIRES
Summary
Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain 2019-2020 Passport and Pilot vehicles equipped with Continental tires. On the affected vehicles, it is possible that one or more tires were cured for too long during tire production.
Remedy
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect all four tires and replace them as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 19, 2021. Owners may contact American Honda Motor Co. customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's number for this recall is UA2.
Notes
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Looks like some Honda owners are going to get a new set of tires!
To bad if you already replaced your tires. That is unless you happened to of slapped on a set of High Performance Sumitomo HTR A/S P03s!

Anyone wanna try to do a burnout in their Pilot before getting their tires replaced?
Wouldn鈥檛 recommend that. I鈥檓 sure they鈥檒l be looking for any reason to claim they don鈥檛 have to replace the tires.

Thanks. I had looked on the first page to see if anything had been posted yet but didn't see this.

Did not find my tires on the Recall list but I never seen that bad delamination/chunk off (pictures attached) after only 16000+ miles of city daily traffic. Would try to contact Honda for clarification.

Is this pitting consistent all the way around the tire, or just one area?

Certainly not normal tire wear then.
How old is the tire?
Are all 4 doing this?
Bought a Honda Pilot 2020 Touring with these tires, so I guess they should be 2020,
but on a sidewall, I see 2013 marks (see attachment)
I've noticed that more on front tires when I did rotation yesterday, did not check yet if these front tires have the same mold number or DOT.

I'd assume a 2020 Honda Pilot should have good tire dates. To know for sure, look for a date code like this...

Let us know how it goes when you contact Honda. That certainly is not a normal wear for 16K miles. I have almost 19K miles on mine and just recently drove 2K miles back and forth to Florida and tires are holding up well, although one tire was affected by the recall and was replaced.

I will update.
Did they just replace one tire only? Did they call you or you asked them?

They replaced only one tire, the wear on the other 3 tires was less than 2/32nd and so it's not required to be replaced. I called Continental tires when I heard about the recall since I found the DOT of my tires in the list of affected tires. But in my conversation with the customer service only one of the 4 have the mold number exactly in the list. I arranged the replacement in my local tire store that Continental recommended (they have the tire readily available) and it was less than 30 minutes process.
