  1. I live in a rural area and I just had my first problem with the LC 500 run flats. That is to say, I picked up a nail which the tire pressure sensor alerted me to, and gave my Lexus dealer a call. The tires cannot be patched from the inside, they MUST BE REPLACED. So, this nail is going to cost me $500. The wheels are 21" and in combination with the run-flat tires, the LC 500 feels like it's in way over its head on anything but a perfectly straight road. I really like my car, and I know that it's never going to be a Lotus, but replacing the tires seems like a reasonable way to reduce rotating weight, and increase handling and road feedback. Has anybody out there with an LC 500 replaced their run-flats with Pilot Sports?
