Due to needing tires ASAP and what was available in stock, I went with 255/50R20 (stock 245/50R20)

Replaced OEM with Michelin Defender LTX M/S

OEM was Continental CrossContact LX Sport and lasted 45k mi before hitting my threshold before paranoia sets in

Vehicle - 2017 Pilot Touring AWD

Posted some photos for those of you who want to see how it looks.

A bit of sidewall protrusion over the rims - hopefully can help prevent gathering more parking curb rashes : p.

Not much different from OEM, but a tad wider on the ground profile.

Visit Tire Size Calculator sites for measurement / mph differences.

I have 40k+ miles on the same tires. You will love them.

Looks good. I have the Costco version (X LT A/S) on my Traverse and they've been great for the couple months I've had them.

Where did you get them done?
Also how's the road noise compare to OEM?

Those Defenders have great reviews, some folks even saying they expire (6 years) before they wear out.

I got the tires from America's tires / Discount tires.
The suspension needed an alignment and that cost $85 down the st,\

Granted I have put just 50mi on them, but the road noise in excellent.

It is like having OEM tires, but with better overall performance
