    Mild A/T tires for an old Honda Pilot?

    Sorry to post non-jeep content here but this is the only online group I trust for advice.

    Our old AWD Pilot (it'll never die...) needs new shoes. It does double duty as the car the kids drive and occasional runs to the dump since the cargo capacity is crazy for a boring midsize suv. Currently have Kumho Road Venture A/T's installed but I've been disappointed with the tread life. Decent tires other than that but I'd like to try something different. Anyone have any experience with a Cooper offering that would fall into this category? This vehicle sees about 85% pavement but since we're in AK, "pavement" may not mean much. It will also see lots of snow and ice of course.

    Thanks for the advice!

    We have the Cooper Discoverer AT3-4S on one of the Liberty’s and have been really happy with them. It’s been 2.5 years / 25k and they still look new and have barely worn. I paid $650 all in and at the time got a $70 rebate. I would buy them again!

    I've had good luck with BFG All Terrains on many other vehicles. Not sure if they make a size small enough on a Pilot but if you keep them rotated, they last a long time.

    Check out the Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. It's a hybrid of all-terrain and mud tires. Love how it performs on and off-road. Also, its not loud unlike other A/T tires.

    Agree on the good tire part. I'm at almost 50k on my set. Work great. Unfortunately, as for the loud part, just wait.......

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
