Due for replacement tyres after stock Bridgestone ER33, was a good tyre, lasted 60000km. Thinking either direct replacement of same or Bridgestone Potenza RE003, more of a performance tyre but concerned will wear quicker. Current 4th tyre free offer is enticing (around $900 for all fitted) What other options should I consider? I don't need a pure performance tyre but don't want an economy tyre either (mid-on range).
Just got a 2010 rx450h with 51000KMs from local Lexus dealer. The current tyre depth is just abt 3 - 4mm. Dealer said according to the system this vehicle was still with the original tyre (BridgeStone) and they could replace a new set for me. After purchase the deal told me this is the 2nd set of new BridgeStone 235/55/R19 tyres for this vehicle already. So they cannot replace a new set for me. But the interesting thing is the sales says that the life of tyre is abt 40000 - 60000kms. I also asked my friend, a vehicle specialist with more than 10 yrs exp, he also says that 40000-60000 is normal if the car has been treated properly. The one I just got has full service history at local dealer so I think it is under good condition. So that means the original tyre of RX450H can only last for less than 30000kms! And it happened for 2 set of tyres! I just wonder how long the tyre can last for other RX450H owners. I was confident with the Lexus technology. But if say that less than 30000kms is the normal tyre wear then it just make me so disappointed and unhappy of the local dealer Is it normal or I just met a tricky dealer?
Hi guys, Just back from tyre shop to put on new x pacakge 18inch wheels in my is250. The wheels looking great but for some reason something looks odd for the front one. The tryre size seems not wide enough for the wheels so the lip is sticking out (hence not much wheel protection too). Is it possible that the tyre is not mounted properly? It looks a little ugly to be honest :( I confirm many times from many online sources and dealer that the front tyre size is 225/40/18 for 18/8 wheel size. Which is the tyre that I bought, but I'm wondering it can look like that if it's OEM recomended size? Tyre is Kumho KU22. See pic for better explanation of the situation. Any toughts? any x package owners experience this too?
