On my 2010 LS460L AWD, I installed Bridgestone Serenity tires. I have been very happy with their smoothness and quietness. My daily commute is a 35-mile drive into mid-town Manhattan. One-half of the drive is on decent highways while the one-half is through NYC potholes.

Love the tires, have on my ls460 and sc430(runflats). Getting great wear, although Discount hasn't ever cured one tires seating on chrome wheels, leaks =-2#/week. No biggie though.

Default Michelin MXV4 S8

Two weeks ago I bought a set of MXV4 S8's and really love them. They are quiet and ride nice. I replaced the factory Bridgestones at 24k and am much, much happier with these. I would recommend them highly.

Default Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Anyone have any experience with the new 70,000 mi rated Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Tires? Discount Tire recommended them to me but I am a little gun shy as I burned through a set of Pirelli Nero tires in 6 months and 19K miles. The P7's seem rated high with the exception of snow country, which is not a factor as I live in Phoenix, AZ.

Default Pirelli cinturato p7

I have Bridgestone serenity plus on my 2010 ls460 - they're really good.

I just put some Pirelli p7 cinturato's on my MB SL 500 - they are really smooth and quiet - more so than the bridestones. I'll likely switch to the pirellis on my ls460 when the time comes.

Call it what you will, but beyond performance intel I'm looking forward to sporting the Pilot Sport A/S 3's just to have the "checkered flag" logo on the sidewall. I've always thought that was a neat design.
I also drove the Continental ExtremeContact DWS, they were great. For sure worth a look.

my new 13 LS came Michelin and they are also nice.

For me it is also about the service. I bought from a local dealer and they get me in and out fast and they do not charge for rotation.

Click on "Tests" tab in the middle of the page for a comparison of tires:

I bought the PureContact tires and I like them a lot (only $175.00 each @ Discount Tire).

I couldn't have said it better myself. I have the DWS's now and am quite impressed. I've always been a Pilot fan, but for the cost difference I may stick with Conti's until Michelin lowers their price. Either way you can't go wrong. My experience with Pirelli's have been outstanding out the gates, but they quickly lose their performance. And I'm talking about the P-Zero Rosso's.

Anyone tried the Pirelli CINTURATO P7 ALL SEASON PLUS - 235/50R18 97V? Promo at Sam's Club right now and TireRack survey seems to love them. Opinions? Compared to PIlot HX or Serenity?

The problem with new tires is that you are comparing them with the old, worn out tires. So anyone moving from old Bridgestone Serenities with 50,000 miles on them, worn down to the tread bars, cupped, hard and cracked from 5 years of use in all kinds of weather....... well, it's hardly surprising that those new XXXXXXX ride so much nicer! That's why I take the tire rack surveys with a pinch of salt. You notice that the expensive OEM tires invariably fall at the bottom of the survey (with millions of miles of customer experience), while the new less expensive tire-du-jour is up there at the top (with only a couple hundred thousand miles of customer experience). I do think their new tire comparison tests are useful, though as you are comparing new with new on the same cars.
