Allow me to open the can of worms known as tires.
I live in the DC area and need to replace my OEM Bridgestones--on 18" wheels/RX 450h--soon.
I'm looking for a longer-lasting, comfortable riding tire that is all season and will have a tread wear warranty of at least 60K. Good wet weather braking would be a plus. I don't need tires rated over 120 mph--I doubt that this vehicle could go that fast. I won't be carrying heavy loads or towing a trailer. The less money they cost, the better, though I realize I'll have to spend over $100 per tire.
Suggestions would be appreciated. Currently there are too many out there to even begin to contemplate, and I don't keep up w/ tires these days, anyway.
