Anyone have any experience with these pricey tires? Better than the LTX M/S and Dueler H/L? Looking to replace the stock Goodyear Integrity passenger tires (bad in the wet) on our Lexus RX300 at 40K miles.

Good question. Too new a tire to get feel for them. I've only seen them on the new C3 GMC's. From what I can see they are definitely a road tire (By the looks and feel of it, a road tire only.). Seems way to soft to be playing on gravel or off road.

We only drive on the streets so off road capability is of no importance for us. That's why it's the Dueler H/L, LTX M/S, or the Cross Terrains under consideration.

Purchased a set of Cross Terrains for our Astro Van - no off road driving. Biggest benefit so far is that the tire a very queit. Originally looked at the LTX M/S and almost purchased - but based on our useage and higher tire wear rating of Cross Terrain decided to give them a try. One intesting note, I don't know what it is but the tires have some type of factory treatment that makes the sidewalls look/stay dark black in color (not sun bleach).
