The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2019 Honda Pilot is the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98840 because it has excellent ground and bumper clearance for use with accessories like bike racks.

This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver which is going to give you far more options to use accessories than a hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The hitch is a bolt-on installation which does not require drilling into your '19 Pilot's frame to install, is made in the U.S.A. and comes with a lifetime warranty.

The only thing to keep in mind is this hitch does will not fit a Honda with a full-size spare tire under the vehicle, but will fit if it has a mini spare tire. I have added a link to a video of this hitch being installed on a Pilot for you to take a look at, as well as a photo a customer sent in showing what the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98840 looks like on a 2019 Honda Pilot.

Hi, is T165/80 D17 104M considered a mini spare, which is the standard spare for the 2019 Pilot. I too have a 2019 pilot touring and want to install a hitch just so I can attach a bike rack no other plans to tow anything. I see there are three options so want to make sure I get the right one. Thanks.

The etrailer Trailer Hitch # E98840 will allow any spare smaller than 18" to fit without issues, so your T165/80D17 spare won't be a problem.
