Default What are the best tires for 2016 ES 350

What are the best tires for my 2016 Lexus ES 350. Size is 225/45 R18. The factory tires it came with (Bridgestone Turanza) are almost worn with 21K miles. I'm looking for better all season tires. Thanks.

The best has been debated in other threads, so do a search. The worst, however, is clear (Bridgestone Turanza's).

The Pirelli P7 Plus and Michelin Premier A/S are also highly rated and were both rated #1 previously. .

About 10 years ago, I had a set of Goodyear Assurance tires on an ES. They were the Assurance Comfortred Touring series. Goodyear tires don't seem to get a lot of mention on the CL ES boards, but those tires were some of the best tires I've ever owned. The ride was just as comfortable and quiet as the Michelin Primacy tires that they replaced. I had over 60,000 miles on them when I traded the car in, and they still had another 5-10,000 miles worth of tread left on them, which is, by far, more miles than I've ever gotten out of any set of Michelin tires. And, as a bonus, they were a couple of hundred dollars less expensive than the Michelin Primacy tires that they replaced.

When looking at TireRack reviews you have to look at the miles travelled and the number of reviews. New tires will quickly supplant tires that have been out a long time, and most reviews of brand new tires are positive because the difference between the reviewer's worn tires is so positive. Personally, I would choose a slightly lower rated tire with 10,000,000 miles reported and 500 reviews over a newer tire with 200,000 miles reported and 20 reviews.

For instance those #1 Yokohama Avid Ascend GT tires, okay they're #1 but only 87,000 miles reported.

If you look at this chart, all of the tires rated "above" the Pirelli P7s have less than 400k miles reported, and the P7? 13M. The Michelin Premier? 6M. As those newer tires are reviewed more, their ratings will regress towards the mean and the more established tires will rise back up.

The tires I would buy? Pirelli Cinturato P7 Plus.

I went with the Pirelli's P7 Plus and I have no complaints... Nice riding and quiet tire... I noticed the chart above shows that tire going for 167 a tire.. that's a better price than when I bought mine 2 years ago.. I believe I paid 185 per tire...
