I've had the Pilot Sport A/S3+ on my 2018 since I bought it new (swapped rims & tires from my 2015 6 Touring). A couple of things I have noticed:
1) Fuel economy dropped slightly
2) Road noise is definitely noticeable under rougher road conditions. When the road is glass smooth or interstate grade, they're quiet. If it's a slurry seal or gravel overlay road, the noise picks up considerably
I had the Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 before the Michelins and outside of the somewhat premature wear (only 35000mi before they were at 4/32), they were an excellent tire. They are also about $30+ less per tire than the Michelins, though they are usually special order.
Though you have to replace your tires at 2/32" tread, it's usually a good idea to replace them at 4/32". This is especially true as you get towards the wetter seasons. The closer you get to the wear bars, the more compromised your stopping and handling will be. Once you get down to 4/32, it gets very noticeable.
