When I bought my 2017 MDX Nav last April, it came with new Uniroyal Cross Country Tours. I thought, at the time: "Uuhh, Uniroyals", but figgured I'd wear them and go for something different later. Well, they have turned out better than I thought they would.....quiet and predictable on the highway, and even, minor wear, so far (about 8000 klicks). Then we get socked with early winter snows and freezing temps, and my Nokians are still two weeks away by schedule for installing. The Uniroyals have been surprisingly good on the ice.....we live in a very hilly area, and some roads are ant-traps for unprepared vehicles. No problems going wherever I want, but that may say more about the AWD system than the tires.
