#57 of 66 Michelin Lattitude tires
Sep 12, 2011 (8:17 am)
After 55K miles on my original Michelin MX4's, I put Michelin Lattitude on my 2008 RX350 last Feb., and what a big difference in snow and ice! Much better, but this summer, I can definately hear more "road noise", but the advantage in snow seems to be well worth the "noise".
#59 of 66 RX-350 2010 19" Tires Problem
Sep 18, 2011 (10:25 am)
I had 15K service on my RX-350 and Lexus dealer rotated and balanced tires. I have 19” Bridgestone tires. After this service I felt vibration at speed of ~70 miles/hr. I brought my car back with complaint for the bad tire balance. I do not know that they did this time but the response was that three tires could not be balanced and need to be replaced (they should’ve told me this after their 15K service). Thus, after only 15K I replaced four tires. Has anybody experience the same problem? Is it tires problem or the car problem? Will this happen again after 30k?

If the dealer was telling the truth Bridgestone would ahve replaced those tires.
#61 of 66 Tires for 2008 RX 350
Sep 19, 2011 (9:55 am)
I just replaced a set of Eagle RSA's on my 2008 RX350 (all wheel drive with R18's) with the Goodyear Assurance Comfortred touring tires. Although I thought the RSA's performed quite well in wet and snow conditions, they let in quite a bit of road noise and are showing considerable wear at 37,000 miles; partly my fault as they were not rotated as often as they should have been. That said, I just put on a set of Goodyear Assurance Comfortred touring tires. I noticed the difference immediately... they give a much improved ride over the RSA's and only cost about $20 more. I'll have to wait and see how they handle in snow, but they appear to have a similar tread pattern to the RSA's, so I'm hoping they perform well. They are rated as all weather and have very high marks (9's and 10's) for dry, wet and snow traction, noise and comfort... according to goodyear that is. They sell in the $175 to $199 range and are rated at 70,000 for the 100V's. I'd like to hear if anyone has any experience with these on their RX350. FYI, I did notice that tire prices are higher in areas with higher real estate values and that most tire dealers don't give the best price up front, so haggle a little... it's worth it.

I tried the Toyo a few months ago. Much road noise, and a very harsh ride. My tire shop gave me a full credit, and put on Michelin Lattitude. Much better. Noisey, but excellent in snow.

I bought my 2001 Lexus RX 300 brand new. At the time of purchased, the original set was Goodyear Integrity. The original set last 53,000 miles. I was so please that I purchased another set for the same vehicle. Right now, I am on my third set. The vehicle currently has 107,000 miles. I think I will still with Goodyear Integrity for forever.
#64 of 66 Good tire brand?

Anyone have comments on the Nitto brand of tires? The Cross TEK CUV has a 50k mile tread warranty. Will cost me $176 per tire (down from $260)
I have a 2010 RX350 and have to replace my Dunlop 19" tires at 30k miles and was told I got lucky they lasted that long. I was looking into the Michelin and Alenza after reading the forum. The guy at the tire place told me there are a lot of recalls on Michelins and he couldn't get the the Alenza's for me.

You can try Bridgestone, they have a 50k miles and are around $110 ea. We have them in our '07 RX350 with great results. Costco may have them. Michelin does not have a mileage warranty when we got these.
Hope it helps,

Love my Bridgestone over the Michelin Pilots I have on my son's camry. Both are low rolling resistance and my bill out the door with all necessities including CA tax and alignment was $975 ish ??? Handle better than the Pilot low rolling imho. There may be a reason you can't get them....
