I bought ES350 on May 2006, and mileage is about 18,000.
The inflation warning light was on yesterday and I went to dealer to check it.
They told me that all tires are worn out and I should replace all 4 tires. (Asked $1,270)
Based on Toyo tire warantee manual, the mileage is not warranted.
Can you believe that I have to purchase all 4 tires even though I haven't driven 20,000 miles yet?
If I should purchase them, could you recommend better place than a dealer?
Good-Man, I am a bit confused by the lack of warranty for tire replacements on your car. Shouldn't Toyo warranty your tires to cover replacements as my Bridgestone Tire warranty does? I would think that Lexus would mount tires, regardless of mfg, to cover at least 36,000 miles
These are the tires on my 2007 ES350:
Bridgestone Turanza EL 400 P215/55R17
98V/MIS Tubeless Radial/EL4PKZ
This is the Bridgestone Warranty:
80,000 MILE LIMITED TREADWEAR WARRANTY†
80,000 MILE LIMITED TREADWEAR WARRANTY† (T-Speed Rated)
50,000 MILE LIMITED TREADWEAR WARRANTY†
50,000 MILE LIMITED TREADWEAR WARRANTY† (H- & V-Speed Rated)
The Turanza EL400 with UNI-T gives you demand of the road with easygoing comfort. UNI-T technology delivers state-of-the-art traction on wet and dry roads. The style is premium. But the price is suprisingly manageable.
†Prorated replacement if warranted mileage not attained; actual tread life my vary. Certain restrictions and limitations may apply. Ask your retailer for details.
††Replacement at no charge (excluding taxes and disposal fees) if your Bridgestone tire becomes unusable for any reason within the manufacturer's control for up to 3 years from date of purchase or 4 years from date of manufacture, whichever is to the owner's advantage. Certain restrictions and limitiations may apply.
‡Original proof of purchase required to take advantage of the 30 Day Test Drive. Tires must be returned within 30 days of purchase. Does not apply to tires supplied as original equipment on new vehicles.
