Default Tire recommendation needed please - first time tire buyer


I have an older, 2002, RX 300 that I bought used a few years ago. It has about 180k miles on it, and the time has come where it needs a new set of tires.

I believe the current tire size is 225/70 R16

I am in the Houston, TX area, so do not deal with snow, but do deal with water and hot weather. I drive the car about medium use, i.e 1000 or less miles a month, a mix of street and highway, but more street.

The car is parked in the driveway most of the day when not in use, so it gets exposure to a fair amount of sun, I know that needs to be changed.

I would like to get a set of tires that will suit the vehicle well as well as be of good quality.

What do you all recommend? Please.

Thank you

Michelin Premier LTX. It's the new generation of Michelin SUV tire, better and cheaper than Michelin Latitude Tour (which was replaced by LTX).
You will find many good reviews on tirerack website. https://goo.gl/wmrvrG
