Lexani Tires

Has anybody heard of Lexani tires? One of the local car centers offered this brand of tires and this is the first I've heard of it so I'm skeptical. It's time to replace my P-Zeros and I thought I'd use tire brand other than pirellis since they are hard to get in Hawaii and super expensive. Thanks.

I knew they made wheels, but this is the first I have heard on them making tires too.

My son put some on his cavalier last week. They look nice but can't really say on quality yet.

I would stick with a major manufacturer like Michelin or Goodyear. The knowledge you saved $200 will be little comfort if you have a blowout at 70+mph.

I bought a set for my old 22"s and the shop owner told me they were rebranded Nexen tires. I don't know if that's true or not. The tires were great except for the fact they were kinda loud whenn stopping. With the music on it doesn't matter though

I had a set on my old 24's. In dry weather they worked well, tread life I would say about 30,000 so not too bad, but that could be due to me running 24's at the time. Of course I can't really speak on ride quality of the tire because those were big wheels. I wouldn't recommend them, I had them because that's all I could find in my area for my wheels. Also, I had no confindence in them in wet weather. I would break loose just from making a normal left turn. Made me very cautious when turning in rain. Like sir Paladinjc had mentioned, I would stick with what's proven.

I am not familiar with these tires, but I promise they come from a major manufacture, but are labeled different. Tires, much like electronics, are made by only a few manufacturers.

Thanks for all the advice. I'll stick with Goodyear.

Nope, they were pretty cheap. It’s been a while so don’t remember exactly how much
