Hi All,

I have a 2014 IS350 Luxury (base model) and just wanted to get some feedback form others regarding the tyres that come fitted, ie the Bridgestone Turanza T001 (225/45R17 91W).

My experience in dry weather has been great, but wet weather has been absolutely terrible. Ive had the car lose traction in the rear on several occasions exiting a roundabout and turning corners. Im pretty conservative in wet weather so I cant blame the traction loss on hard driving in the wet.

Im actually at the point where the car doesn't feel safe in wet weather with these tyres.

Previously, Ive had Continentals on my cars and never had an issue. Anyhow Im going to swap them all out for Conti Sport Contact 5 tyres, but was just wondering what experience others have had with the Bridgestone T001's or if anyone was running SCS5 on the IS's?

If you looking for decent tyres, get Michelin PSS or goodyear F1 Asymmetric 2. I personally recommend Goodyear

I have heard pretty good things about the PSS and PS3, I'll have a look at reviews for the F1 asymmetrics. IMO, not a lot an be worse than these T001's in wet weather. Its a bit disappointing to have these on the car but I guess Bridgestone were the lowest tender when they contracted it out
