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.)
One of our beloved trd wheels was cracked in a minor collision. We tried to find a replacement but were unable to and so we bought new wheels.
Now we have to sell the 3 remaining trd wheels which are in fine condition, so please let me know if you are interested or know someone who may be!
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.
