Did the same, - got about 55K on my '12 Touring with the original Primacy. Did a second set as well. When it needed tires again around 110K, we were gifting it to our daughter, and the Primacy were no longer available. I went with the same Continentals that came on the new ones.I got 60K out of the OEM Michelins that came on my 2013 Pilot Touring. I put Michelins on it the second time and traded it with 72K on it. Someone got some fine rubber when I bought the 2020 Passport Touring. I'm interested to see how the Continentals do on it.
Oh great, now @xGS is gonna have to bring up the great Sumitomo debate...Buying high priced tires for a high milage warranty is not always the answer. I don't like 80k mile tires because when they get to 3 years old +, they become hard and start to loose traction. I look for tires warantied for 60k miles and replace every 2 to 3 years. This = fresh rubber at half the price. My High Performance Sumitomo HTR AS P02s shipped to my house, cost a little over $500 after mount and balance at my local flat fix tire shop.
Nothing can be done if someone insists upon buying low-quality tires.
The Sumitomo HTR AS P02 is ranked #3 in the High Performance category.Nothing can be done if someone insists upon buying low-quality tires.
As far as the Pilot is concerned, although Honda recommends replacing tires all four tires at the same time, they also state that if that isn’t possible, then to replace the front or rear tires in pairs.The one thing I don’t like about AWD is that you have to replace all 4 tires at the same time, you can’t just put two new tires in the front or back. I’m on my 3rd set of tires and my car has 77k miles. On my second set, I had a flat and the hole was near the wall, so they couldn’t fix it. I only had about 20k miles on the tires but I had to replace all 4 tires. They wouldn’t let me just replace the front two tires since it’s AWD.
