Ok, so got 1 flat and a screw in another...
tires prolly have 1-2K miles left, so 1st of all, do I replace all 4 or just 2??

As for TIRE SELECTION (i've got 18" ltuned wheels, 225/40/18 tires)
Lexus wants $1300 :eek: for 4 Michelin Pilot Sports (what i've got now)...
They've lasted 24K miles so far.

I need a tire that performs just as well as this one, hopefully one that will last as long. Does another tire exist?

thanks!
-Bryan

p.s. currently checking prices at other places...

Don't goto Lexus to get new tires unless they're giving it to you free under warranty. They will rape you, goto a reputable tire shop in you area and you will save $$$$$$$.

try tirerack. the dealer is almost always gonna charge you more. also, if you visit the tirerack website, you can compare different tires.

Yea, just got off the phone w/ those guys. Unless Lexus is willing to budge on the price (waiting to hear back), I'll be buying from tirerack.

thanks for the quick responses.
