So I shopped for tires (P235/55R19) over the weekend and received conflicting information from various tire shops. I prefer to stick with Michelins but am not opposed to other recommendations. However, the information I received over the weekend was specifically related to Michelins. I used to have a 2001 RX300 Silversport and had about 4 sets of Michelin Defender LTX M/S tires over the life of the vehicle while in my possession. Those tires were great for treadwear. So, should I stick with the Defender LTX MS for the 2015 RX350 or should I go with a different Michelin or a different tire all together? The other Michelin choices are the Premier LTX, Latitude Tour HP, and Primacy MXM4. Thank you for your help & recommendations.
Is 235 55 R17 tire ok for Lexus ES350 2010 ? Standard tire is 215 55 R17. Also which brand is better and which store is best ?
I am mostly in Houston TX so high temperature and rain ..mostly city highways ...
I am a new member living in Alabama with a 2008 ES350 that has 57,150 miles. I purchased a set of expensive Michelin Defender's just a 3 years ago and only got 10,000 miles out of them. I am again in the market for tires an am in need of your help. My Lexus is in great shape. It only requires gas and oil changes. There are no problems and it is well cared for. It has never been in an accident and I'm not wearing out the brakes so there is no reason for the excessive wear on the tires other than they did not live up to the 90,000 mile promise. Can you recommend the best tire for my Lexus?

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!
