Update on winter tyre performance on my RX 450H.......20 inch alloys


Recommended Posts

Thought this would of interest to all RX owners fitted with 20 inch alloys.

Had Yokohama Blue earth winter tyres  235/55/r20 fitted in November..............bought on line at £107 each via Roundtrip Tyres.........had the tyres fitted by Lexus Derby coinciding with the MOT...........they charged £5 per tyre fully fitted and balanced.

The car rides superbly with these tyres particularly in the wet.

Living in the Peak District we have had plenty of snow and icy conditions recently.........the car behaved surefooted and stable  albeit on  short local covid allowed shopping trips etc.

The car rides very well indeed, much better than the normal Bridgestones Summer tyres.

Terry thanks for letting us know, I have a real respect for drivers that put winter/all season tyres on their car, I am one of them!

On my GS I have GoodYear all season and i feel much more confident on white stuff! I also changed on my wifes car her run flats to a Goodyear all season tyres, it transformed the car! It is quieter now, comfier and much more usable when it's cold outside! 

The price you paid for the tyres and especially to fit them is really good!

TJB, you will have to keep us updated on this especially for the wear rate on them.

I was thinking of them but ended up having two of the new Yokohama Geolander G058 fitted to the front of mine, so far they have proved to be good for noise level and roadholding even in the two big snowfalls we have had over the last two weeks.

Some tyre places are advertising them as summer tyres but Yokohama advise them as All Season.

I can confirm that Supervalue all weather are not much cop. At £75 a pop need I say more. Interestingly on my RX400H the 235/65s roll very close to the coil base.

I would love to have Cross Climates on my RX, but it doesn't look like Michelin are going to do them for the gen 4.

Might seriously consider the Yokahomas when my Bridgestones require replacement.
