2006 Lexus RX330 235/55 R18 (99V) This is for the wife, looking to get her new tires. This SUV, weekly a trip or two to a store, appointment, post office etc. I went to DT today and they are closed Sunday's so now looking on line for options. Low miles per year in town use. Concern- rain, noise/comfort/handling/braking etc. With low annual miles, tires will age before worn out. Not looking for anything fancy, just something near soccer mom level. I may take it a trip within state maybe once a year, plus a time or two just to get it out highway speed since she doesn't. I'm not a tire kind of guy so any inputs appreciated. DT... some options I looked at: $ea~price (with certificates)/ Mile Rated / TW-(Tread Wear) / Tire $119~$690 / 50k / TW-440 / Cooper CS3 Touring $145~817 / 60k / TW-740 / Yokohama YK 740 GTX $155~866 / 65k / TW-620 / Michelin Latitude Tour $165~915 / 70k / TW-700 / Perelli Cinturato Strada AS $170~940 / 65k / TW-740 / Perelli Scorpion Verde AS Plus From there prices go up, so I don't know if it's worth her driving type. Side note - I seen DT has a tire called Laufenn S FIT AS (no I'm not interested). Think earlier I saw online someone mentioned a new Hankook tire. Thanks again for any inputs - I'm hoping by end of this week into next week getting her new tires before rains set in (unless California goes dry winter again).
