I'm thinking about getting these for my Legend as well. Check out the ratings for this tire from TireRack.com http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=BFGoodrich&tireModel=Traction+T%2FA+H&vehicleSearch=true&partnum=06HR5TTA&fromCompare1=yes How much are they at Sam's by you? They are $63/ea. from Tire Rack for the factory size. The only thing that worries me is that the people rating this tire have put relatively few miles on them. Luckily, I live within 1/2 hour of the South Bend, IN location! Every time I drive by there they have really EXPENSIVE cars sitting in front of the building. They also have car shows and small racing events.

I dont know if they have changed the formula in the Goodrich T/A series but back around the late 90's in my RX-7 racing days I remember me and my friends getting T/A's and finding out that the traction was slippery as soap whenever the road was wet and the RX-7's would simply spin the rears everytime on takeoff in the rain. Since then and till today we stear clear away from them we found that Sumitomos had better traction and moved on too that. Since Ive had the Legend the best tires I have used so far are the Kumhos great quality for the price and Pirelli PZero Nero's (currently) feels like same traction as Kumhos with twice the tread life. I never have trusted T/A or tried them since. I believe they will last you a long time because the rubber they use is very synthetic however since less actuall real rubber is used = slippery when wet feel. Id check the wet traction rating on tirerack.com if I was you before purchasing.
