I'm a relatively new owner of a pearl white 340 with 110,000 miles and new member of this site. In 6 months or so I'll be in the market for a new set of tires. My priimary
objective is Smooth and QUIET. Here in western Oregon we have lots of rain and almost no snow, and if we have a rare snow fall neither I nor my wonderful 340 will be out in it.
I guess that means a summer tire, 18" wheels, good in wet conditions, and complimentary with the legendary Lexus smooth quiet ride. I have left behind the practice of rubbing the chrome off the door handles while negotiating corners.
Earlier posts of some years back had recommended Michelin Premier A/S but they didn't turn up on a Tire Rack search which did recommend Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S. Any comments or other suggestions?
Current tires are Cooper GSS Ultra touring, which seem noisy and sensitive to longitudinal pavement seams or ridges. The noise comes at 50mph+ speeds and it sounds like wind noise from around the top of front doors and sunroof area. (Yes, I checked for the obvious)
Thank you for sharing any of your collective experience with these wonderful cars. I'm thoroughly enjoying this website and the forums.
