In the luxury midsize SUV market, the Lexus RX350 ranks as one of the best. It’s easy to see why thanks to a great looking interior, spacious room for the driver and passengers, good power and impressive standard features.
With a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, the RX350’s tires need to be ready to handle that power and translate it into comfort and performance on the road. The AWD and FWD models are available with 18” and 20” tires as Original Equipment. The 235/65R18 and 235/55R20 options are found in Bridgestone’s Ecopia H/L 422 Plus and Michelin’s Premier LTX.
Both tires are in the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category, known for providing a stylish appearance, sophisticated comfort and all-season on-road traction. While the Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus has not accumulated enough miles to be represented in our survey results, the Michelin Premier LTX is currently number one. It’s no wonder the tire is ranked as highly as it is, when it has the highest ratings in the following categories: wet traction, dry traction, winter traction and comfort. The tire also receives a good rating in treadwear performance.
Another popular, highly ranked tire in this category, is the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus. It receives high marks across the board, and is currently priced a little less than the Michelin. Designed to provide more miles and miles per gallon than its predecessor, the tire combines long treadwear and reduced rolling resistance while retaining year-round traction in dry, wet and wintertime conditions, even light snow.
