I do need 1 yea. Obviously I wouldn't be jumping to buy another full set of the stock tires, since there are many claims they have horrible performance.

The stock tire (Blackstone I think?) sells for $169 from my dealer. Hardly a cheap tire was my point! Virtually any aftermarket tire would be cheaper or close to it, and apparently be a huge performance gain as well.

The stock tires are working great on the pastures and trails along with gravel and pavement. I am liking the Pioneer much more now that the snow is gone. If I lived where it snowed a lot, I would buy another set of tires like bighorns, that work better in the snow.

$169 would be for the ones with the puncture liner which I believe Honda does not use. Regular ones are $100

Stupid being the key word.

Maybe rushing "development/production" is not the best way to pick an all around tire tread or compound.

Or heater....

Or windshield hardtop softop interface

We got another snow this one was freezing rain sleet then snow about 5 inches so I thought I would try my old pioneer again. Well this time it went a lot better so I'm not as disappointed as before so different types of snow wet - powder makes a huge difference with the stock tires
