Kip, Thanks for the advice but the Harmony tire is not made in the size I need for the Pilot. It's only made in smaller passenger car sizes.
Anyone have any other suggestions for the current generation Pilot?

So how are the Silent Armors doing for you since you more than likely got some miles on them now.
On a side note, here is a video I shot of some "light" off-roading I did in "The Beast". We went from 450ft elevation up to 1400ft elevation, then down to around 300ft elevation and back. Had a National Guard Humvee that was having trouble with the hill along with us and he couldn't believe how welll the Pilot handled it. Tires make all the difference (and yes I still have the Silent Armors of with 48k on them now.)

I have a 2004 Pilot with 67,000 miles. I still have orginal Goodyear Integrity tires, prob good for another 5,000miles. I have heard a lot of bad things about these tires, but mine have been great. Something must be screwy with
yours. I would investigate thoroughly.

We purchased a new Pilot in '03 and traded it for a Ridgeline in '09.
The Pilot had around 40K miles and the Goodyear Integrity tires still had near 1/2 the tread left.
Ran 32-34 lbs of air and only rotated them a couple of times.
I'm a careful driver and don't wait until the last minute to slam on brakes for stops, don't accelerate hard, and I go around corners on all 4 wheels.
FWIW: Hard driving cost in more ways than just burning excessive fuel.
#150 of 174 changing out rims... how to size the new tires?
Jul 13, 2011 (11:59 am)
Hi, I am looking to change out the 16" rims on my 2006 Pilot. I am considering some 17 inch rims but am not sure how to choose the right tire specs. How is this done? Thanks.

If you go to Tirerack.com, they will give you alternate sizes for different wheel diameters for your Pilot..
Alternatively, you can Google for Miata.net tire size calculator. That will let you play around for equivalent sizes.

One more thing... is there any negative consequence from changing from the factory 16" x 6" rims to the 17"x8"? Pros and cons?
