Dunlop or Toyo for 08 MDX

1st set of Tour HP wore out at 22k, second set is almost shot after 28k.
Acura dealer says that the Dunlop Signature SP is now anAcura endorsed/approved MDX replacement tire, along with the OEM Michelin and Dueler 400 both which I do not want.
Anyone have winter experience with the Dunlop? Also considering the Versado CUV, both I think will be better than the Lattitude HP, Also in the running is the Grabber HTS. A tough decision, since the Grabber seems very highly rated but seems to have poorer treadlife, the CUV is hard to get locally in Cleveland and the Dunlop is certainly more sport with a stiffer ride. Anyone have these on their X?

PS the dealer did a lot of Conti DSW for a while on the X but stopped due to frequent tread cupping

I have a set of Toyo Proxes ST/2 tires. I like these tires as they have great drivingcapabiitys and handling. The best thing is that they wear and go for ever 2 years of driving and they show only 1/10th wear. Toyo use to be a very cheap tire to buy but now there price is up there with the best. EBay is a great place to buy tires cheap i have had some very good deal with discount Tire on Ebay.

Went with the Conti Crosscontact LX 20. Got a very good price locally $195 plus $15 installed. Should be very good in snow and so far seem pretty quiet.

I purchased a set of Nokian WR2's, they have been great in the rain as well as on dry pavement. With winter coming I will see how they handle the snow and ice since I live in New England. Cost was cheaper than the OE tires at 220.00 per tire plus balancing.
