So, apologies first, I know tyres have been done to death on here BUT I'm running a 2017 Rx450h f-sport (20" wheels) and this isn't necessarily covered previously - unless I'm looking in the wrong place!

Rear tyres are going to need replaced soon and therefore I would like to pick the collective brains for recommendations and cheapest suppliers. Definitely want all season tyres.

Prices seem to have taken a jump from my 2011 RX, seems to be some manufacturers not making this size (yet?).

As always, thanks in advance.

Ooooo 20" wheels that's  almost pimp my ride territory lol. I have also been looking at tyres as everyone is raving about cross climate Michelin  ,the only advise I can give is look online regarding black circles and the other supermarket type tire people offering mail order only and fit at garages near all in price .i have found a local non franchise tyre place normally beats them if you go in and actually talk to them .

Just had a look online in your tyre size and the choice isn't great my local tyre place is doing Bridgestone dueler h/l 33 £179 fitted.

Thanks for that Alan, I think the lack of manufacturers offering this size tyre means little competition and therefore a higher price.

Your Bridgestone duellers were one of the ones I was looking at locally (also Yokohama Geolander).

Going to phone Lexus Edinburgh and see what they have available.

After looking again black circles is £7 per tyre cheaper on the Bridgestone tyre gets a good review. I imagine give it's a year and your find more makes in yours size.

Been covered before by myself and nothing appears to have changed from a few years ago. 

Michelin Premier are the best tyres for the vehicle, unfortunately they're not freely available and are over £200 each. Bridgestone Duellers are currently the best choice at the moment. Its an odd size, not many manufacturers use it. 

I bought mine online and used Lexus to fit -  it was £25 to fit two tyres including VAT

Prices are higher because its a bigger tyre - nothing to do with competition really. £160 for a premium 20" tyre with huge sidewalls is not bad at all
