Which tires should I buy for optical ride comfort
Hi, I've got a lexus gs 350 2016 base. Rides on a 235 45r18, I am trying to get better rider comfort especially over bumps, by increasing the tire aspect ratio (height), can I just get a 235 55r18 to replace my 235 45r18 or are there any draw backs to this??
Thank you for your insights.
Recently, I had Michelin Primacy MXM4 215/55R17 tires put on my '07 Lexus ES350. Much quieter than the previous Michelin Defender set. It put luxury back in the car.
don't have an h rated version.
why do you have to have 'h' rated tires??? Are you going to be driving 130mph? Why not 's' or 't' or something like that?
I've never had to worry about speed ratings when buying tires, because I'm not a race car driver. Whatever they had was just fine.
Thank you @imperator
Don't think I'll be doing it then.
Given the tire clearance to tire-guard I saw physically, I thought slapping on new tires will just work and give me the cushion i need. Having to get new rims seems like alot of investment.
Gosh I miss my camry.
But thank you again sir

As has been recommended in your previous topics on this same issue, your best bet would be running OEM spec Michelins on the stock rims with maybe the cold tyre pressure lowered (by 2psi at most), to extract best ride quality.
Hi, I am trying to find a mechiline crossclimate2 235 45r18 or 225 45r18 h rated tires
Or hankook kinergy 4s2 h750, 235 45r18 or 225 45r18 h rated tires
Don't seem to be able to find it on tire rack, priority tire or simple tire, even on ebay.
Do these tire sizes not come or have an h rated variant? Only seem to see W for hankook and V and above for the crossclimate2.
Thank you for your responses
Thank you sir
Thank you @boot
I did check there as well as 1010tires
Maybe those sizes are regarding as tire sizes for faster cars and don't have an h rated version.
I might settle for the V, it will be much better than the Y's I have on my GS. I don't really drive the car like crazy.
H will require to get 17 inch rims, which is out of budget.
@imperator my gs350 came with Y rated tires which ride harshly hence I was trying to get at h rated tire.
Had h rated tires on my camry and they rode great, then I got mechiline crossclimate2 which for my tire spec only came in v and I instantly noticed how much harsher they rode.
