I've lurked this site for a number of years, so I guess it's time I became an official member. I bought my '07 ES350 new in '06 and it's been a great car....I plan on hanging onto her as long as I can. She has the original rims, which are now leaking like a sieve in the cold weather. I had no problems with tire leakage until I bought the first set of replacement tires, but ever since it's been a constant battle having the wheels "cleaned" and "sealed" at the tire shop. I need to purchase a set of replacement rims but am undecided where to buy, what brand, how much I need to spend and all. She's black, so I think silver or chrome would look the best. I have OEM 215/55R17 tires. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
(If the old rims are not out-of-round and just need a GOOD refinishing, I'll likely keep them on hand as an extra set.)
Looking for recommendations for all season tires for 2004 RX 330 - the current size is 235/55/18. After doing some research I was leaning towards Michelin Premier A/S or Bridgestone H/L Alenza Plus. My local tire store is recommending that I consider Cooper or Nokian and said to stay away from Michelin and Bridgestone. Any help would be appreciated!
I just purchased a 2003 ES 300, pristine condition with 208,000 miles. The tires are pretty well worn and I would like fellow LOC members to recommend their favorite tires. I am in the SE so no driving in snow with a 70% city/30% highway driving ratio. More interested in comfort and quietness than performance. Any recommendations will be welcomed with your comments.
I'm a first time member so please go easy if I'm breaching all kinds of protocol.
I recently bought a 2012 RX350 with low mileage, the third Lexus I have owned over many years. It came with the 19" wheels and still has the OEM Dunlop tires. Since I bought the car, it has become apparent that this car rides like a go-cart (even compared to my daughters CRV that I'm driving while she's overseas!) and I'm trying to decided how to approach this. Will replacing the OEM tires with Michelins make a dramatic difference? Should I consider replacing the 19" wheels with 18" wheels? Did I just buy the wrong vehicle?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
