Question about 2007 Lexus GS 350 AWD Sedan
Hello, I bought a set of Yokohama tires for my car. I researched the DiscountTire.com Website and chose them for being quiet, good performance, and a soft ride (long life). I believe I originally read about them in a Consumers Report test or a Mechanics Illustrated article.
The Series I chose was equivalent to the Triple-Tread design another maker has. I had my concerns about snow traction and long distance high-speed use and they have performed well. I took several road trips from Michigan to the Texas coast(24 Hours with only Pit-Stops) and they were a good choice. Only had concerns of a high pitched singing noise on about 5% of unfamiliar roads which could have made a noise with any tire.
As with any test, new models of an old name may test differently in the Year it is made. The YOKO's now show as less fuel-efficient than only a few makes. Everything is a compromise with Tire compounds. I gained 5% better mileage by changing the Series from a 60 to a 65.
Unless you had a problem with the original tires, I would say to compare your tire to the YOKO's and see what you gain for the price. You do have to do front to rear rotations as compared to cross-rotations because of the tread pattern.
