Yokohama Parada Spec-X

Great tire. Big improvement from the Generals that were on this certified used Lexus RX350. Very smooth right out of the gate, and handle well in the often wet and hot Florida climate. So far very pleased with these tires.

The tread design seems to attract a lot of pebbles and small stones so I am always checking them out to be sure it's not a nail or something. The dealer was insisting that customers rave about the (OE) Michelin Energy MXV4 and the Good Year Eagle RSA's - but that is not the case if you look at reviews for these tires on this vehicle on Tire Rack - and costs at Lexus dealer for complete installation were about $999 and $899 respectively - so I opted for the very well reviewed Yokohama Prada Spec-X. So far I have not been disappointed at all. Quiet and smooth on the highway, and have handled wet roads / puddles well also.

My only skepticism with this tire was that it did not come with a tread life warranty - but again reviews suggest not a problem. I will report back after more mileage to assess tread wear. But for the price - great deal. Highly recommend this tire. Also - recommended installer in my area was great - saved me almost $100 over another installer (not TR recommended).
