Help need tires
I have a 06 lexus gs 300 AWD got 19" wheels current tires are 255 35 19 and don't think I have any room to put on 265 35 as have no clearance I would like a thicker tire if possible but I had a $1000 set of tires on it I had good year assurance or something on it. I am looking for a good tire for Wet weather with a long tread life. It never snows or ice up here in Louisiana. I have narrowed it down to:
Bridgestone Potenza s-04 pole postion
Goodyear eagle f1 asymmetrical
Contiinental extreme contact DWS
The bridgestone only has 280 or so UTQG and the others like Michelon's have 500 or 540 UTQG does that mean I get almost twice the life out of them?? I don't want to buy a tire for 20,000 miles and I could spend a bit more and get more miles out of them. Someone give me some advice please.
also what is the biggest tire I can get on the car without rubbing? will a 245 40 19 fit? I don't have a staggard setup just normal one.
ok did more research looked up some thicker tires if they work
I have Bridgestone Turanza serenity plus
kumo esta LX platinum (which are real cheap)
and the Michelon primacy mxm4's (expensive)
