Any recommendations on All season tyres for Lexus IS220d please. 

 

Fed up changing summer to winter and vice versa.

 

Thanks for your replies in advance

Hi PCM

Thanks for your reply.

I was looking at going with Goodyear Vector4 all seasons but they only do them in 225 45 17 for front but not 245 45 17 at the rear.

I have considered the Goodyear Vector 4 seasons on front and Michelin cross climate on rear. But not 100% sure as i prefer same brand all round.

In which case i may go with the michelin cross climate all round.

Just wanted to get some opinions before i decide.

 

Thanks again

I would suggest same all around.

My Cross Climates have felt safe, comfy and quiet.

Their reviews are positive too.

Just wish it would snow this year!

What model do you have?

The first year of owning my 220d i got stuck in snow. After which i put winters on in winter. They served me well never got stuck. But hassle of storing and changing too much now. So looking for all seasons just wanted reassurance that all seasons can handle the snow.

 

But yes i am most likely going with michelin cross climate.

Different; an RX.

But I can see the logic of all-seasons.

Especially so if you further north...

After seeing others rave about how the Michelins transformed their car in comparison to the Goodyear 4seasons (which I currently have) I was tempted to try them, but i'm still a little skeptical that perhaps the main difference is new tyres vs worn out tyres rather than the difference between the brands.

I will most likely go michelin as goodyear don't do rears on mine in Vector4 seasons

I think that Mark is right.There seems little difference between each of the "high end" All Seasons and between each of the "medium end" All Season, tyres.

I have yet to read a published readers criticism of any All Season tyre which an owner has purchased. 

As he alludes"when your tyres need replacing, replace them soonest."

Hi Roy

Thanks for your reply. 

My winter tyres were budget tyres Triangle i think and even as a budget tyre they were excellent in snow.

I am decided now definitely going with Michelin

Thanks Kully. Michelin Cross Climates are high end tyres.

I have Kumho Solus A31 All Season, a medium end tyre @ approx £85 each.
