Initial Review: 25,000 miles on tires

This was the stock tire, and the end mileage was a disappointment. The RX450h is an interesting vehicle, but it is certainly not overpowered. My wife's driving style is somewhat impatient, but acceleration is not spirited. Braking and cornering are slightly aggressive. We ran the tires at around 35 psi for most of their life as recommended by the dealer, and side wear was greater than center. We got another 2000 miles out of them near end-of-life by bumping up to 40 psi. The ride was not worse. Our replacement decision was Yokohama Parada Spec-X, which has a higher UTQG rating (420 vs. 300) and is less expensive. So far, so good. We'll see about snow performance if we have any more winters

This was a stock tire for Mazda CX9, 2010. I have 54,000 miles on it and just only this year have I noticed difference in driving. Also this year I increased psi to 40. I would have gone through the winter with it if it weren't for 2 nails.
