Golfweski, I live in Florida and I replaced my runflats with Michelin Pilot Sports. I love them. The ride and handling are significantly improved, and no problems in the rain.
Re: tire repair in a can, I carry Fix-a-Flat, but it supposedly damages the tire pressure sensors. I had mine disconnected because of my rims, so it isn't an issue for me. I don't know of any other similar product that won't damage the sensors.
Thanks for your answer. They were just put on brand new of an SC that I am considering purchasing. He said that they cost about $1,000. He thought that they were good tires?
Do you think that I should be concerned about purchasing the car with them? I live in Florida.
Is there any flat tire repair product in a can that you carry in case of a flat?
If this is a dealership, the guy is lying to you about cost... those are cheap tires.... if it is a private seller, they overpaid
I wouldn't turn down a good deal on the whole car if that is the only issue (the tires).. you can try them for a while and replace them if they cause problems later on and sell them or chalk it up to part of ownership costs....
I have a full sized spare for my non-run flat tires (and I have one more left if you wanted to buy one from me btw) BUT others have bought the space saver spare from the dealer to fit in the trunk spot...
..and some folks just use the goo in a can....
It is up to you.
Over all, I think you'll love the SC430 though ... good luck!
HAD an Absolutely Red SC430 w/Injen Intake, XPEL, 19" (19x8.5 and 19x19) SSR GT3 Rims Wearing S03 245/275 and SIRIUS Satellite Radio (Kenwood H2A with painted to match antenna)
SSRs and Car is gone... only got the back black seat belt pads with Lexus Motorsport written on them, car cover and seat covers now.. LOL leftover memories I guess...
