Tires for Toyota-Lexus-Scion
I don’t have a lot of detail to offer on various tire decisions, but I’ll share my preferences here.
I want all season tires with rubber that has maximum ability to grip the road. This is more important to me than maximum tire life, and it’s more important to me than maximum fuel economy.
Slightly harder tires tend to wear longer and provide better fuel economy. Slightly softer tires tend to grip the road better.
I know that most of the time I won’t be in those near emergency situations that require the very best traction available, but when I’m in those situations, I want to come out alive and hopefully unharmed, and for me, that’s worth sacrificing a little fuel economy and tire longevity. I always ask for tires with the best friction rating.
