Best Tires for a Lexus RX350

Tuesday, June 18, 2013 by Steve Huffman

Lexus' mid-size SUV, the RX350, has been one of their best sellers for quite some time. It's very popular, stylish and reliable. Many have been on the road for a long time and are in need of new tires. If your RX350 is due for a new set, consider the following options.

Most RX350 vehicles came equipped with the 225/65R17 size. There are many great options in this size, but one of my favorites is the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza. This tire has been a top seller for many years and is Bridgestone's premium SUV tire. It offers excellent all-season traction, a quiet and comfortable ride and comes with a 65,000-mile treadlife warranty.

Some RX350s came with 235/60R18 tires. If your vehicle has this size, I would suggest taking a look at the Michelin Primacy MXV4. This is a strong contender in the Grand Touring All-Season category. Like the Bridgestone, it also has a smooth ride, great all-season traction and is offered with a 55,000-mile tread life warranty.

There are a few versions of the vehicle that came with a 235/55R19 tire. Options in this size are a little more limited. However, based on what's available in this size, I'd recommend the Yokohama Parada Spec-X. The tire combines impressive looks and confident handling with year-round traction in a wide range of weather conditions, including in light snow.

Comments on Best Tires for a Lexus RX350

I just purchased a 2008 Lexus RX350AWD with terrible road noise. Looking for quiet replacement tire. I prefer Michelins and was looking at the Primacy MXV4. My specified tires are 235/55-18. The Primacy MXV4 is only offered in 235/60-18 which is the specified size for 2010 and up RX350's. Would this tire be best for my 2008 or is there a different "quiet" tire you would recommend in the 55 size over the Primacy in the 60 size. My wheels are 18x7.0 versus 18x 7.5 on the newer models. Thanks, Barry

Barry, 235/60R18 is not a confirmed size for your vehicle. However, if you're looking for a quiet tire in that size, take a look at the Goodyear Assurance ComortTred Touring or Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tire-brand.jsp?affiliate=TZ4

I compared survey results for Bridgestone Alenza and Continental Cross Contact LX20. The Continental scored higher so I am confused and wondering why I should choose the Brisgestone Alenzas for my Lexus RX 350 with 225/65R17?

I have a 2011 Lexus RX 350 and I want to get a set of tires with the most bang for my buck, still get a very comfortable ride. What do you suggets
Tuesday, August 12, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Terry, if you have the 235/55R19 option, the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia or Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S are your best bests. If you have the 235/60R18, then the General Grabber HTS or Firestone Destination LE 2 are good options to consider. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tire-brand.jsp?affiliate=TZ4

Larry, the CrossContact LX20 is a great choice for your RX 350. The Alenza offered good characteristics, too, but it's been discontinued in that size.

Hi guys
A tires dealer recommends me 245-60R18 MICHELIN for my Lexus RX-350 2011 FWD because it will deliver more stability even original specifications says 235-60-18.

May it create any problem to the suspension or something else?

A friend of mine told me to contact you because he bought some tires time ago with you and he received an outstanding service from tire rack.

I have the 235/55r19 what would you suggest for a winter tire.
Thursday, September 18, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Eric, the most popular seller is the Bridgestone Blizzak. It sells in this size for $167 each. If I can assist, please email me at marshall@tirerack.com.

Edi, this wider tire would likely provide more stability, however these vehicles have extremely tight clearances against the strut and we do not like to deviate from the factory sizing.

I have a 2009 RX 350 with 235/55R18 Goodyears. It's time to replace them. What is the best for road noise and overall value? Currently considering Michelin Premier and Bridgestone (unknown description).
Thursday, September 25, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Steve, one of the most popular sellers for this vehicle is the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia which is currently sold at $169/ea. It tends to be one of the best value brand name tires offered in the size. http://bit.ly/1sZv0LX

I desperately need a snow tire for my 2011 AWD Lexus RX350, it preforms poorly on ice/snow. I don't mind switching out tires in the spring if that is what it takes to be safe. I am very disappointed in the performance of my Lexus in bad weather. This is my 4th SUV and no other have performed so poorly.
Tuesday, October 21, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Roberta, the most popular winter tire we offer for the Lexus is the Bridgestone Blizzak. In the 235/60R18 size, it sells currently for $161 per tire and is a favorite amongst customers. Like all snow tires, it is designed to be used seasonally and removed in early spring. If I can assist, please let me know. -- marshall@tirerack.com
