City, highway, light trailering on dirt/gravel roads with Honda Pilot. Have the XL-rated tire, and it performs very well in all circumstances. LE2 is much quieter than former LE. While I wish it had longer tread life, hard to beat this one for the price and have had nothing but Destinations after poor experiences with Goodyear and Bridgestones.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

265/65/18<br />I have about 28,000 miles on these tires and are almost bald and wont pass inspection. would not recommend to anyone. I am a average driver so I would expect 40,000 out of a 60,000 mile tire but didn't even get 30,000. the wear is nice and even on all four tires was a good tire when lasted but wore out before its time
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
