Default Flat tires

Hi,
I am new to this forum.

I love my Lexus 2006 ES330 but have had repeated problems with flat tires. I've been using the low profile High performance tires.

Does anyone have a suggestion for tires that would be more reliable? I don't want to get rid of my Lexus, but I need to be able to drive without worrying about flat tires.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Flat tires don't have anything to do with the profile or size of the tire.

It has nothing to do at all with the performance rating or anything...

a little luck and where you drive are the factors at work here...

I would have your rims checked for leaks. Oxidation builds overtime and lifts the bead from the rim ever so slightly which causes air to escape. But like mitsuguy said, it's not the profile of your tires.
