Has anyone had experience with these tires? I’m looking to replace OEM tires on my wife’s ‘16 Honda Pliot and saw these tires having good reviews on tirerack. Price look really good as well. Share away your experience folks, would greatly appreciate that

I ran different Sumitomo tires on my 2007 Ridgeline for 6 years and 30K miles, and they served me well. They were Sumitomo Tour Plus LXT tires, an all position tread. They aged out long before they would have worn out. They were smooth and quiet on the highway, they wore evenly and stayed balanced. No complaints from me about this lesser known brand.

I have a set of these Sumitomo Encounter on my '06 Suzuki Gran Vitara. They wear well and are quiet. Good in the wet and dry, not much experience in snow here in NC. I've had several sets of Sumitomo tires and they have always been a good value.

highly recommended.
