I have my second set of Dunlops on my 2003 LX 470 and I am not a big fan of these tires. The size of the tire is P275/60R18 and I am not finding a big selection in this size. What other sizes would be suitable for my LX470? What would be the pros and cons of a different size?

Thanks - Jim

You want to make sure the circumference or diameter of the tire is close to this size. OEM tires are always an odd size and very expensive to get. Just get as close to the 275 as possible and stick with the 60 as that is the ratio of tread width to height. If it is off a little bit it won't matter as you will have a diameter that is around a 1/4 inch different and that will not affect the speedometer in a way that will be noticeable or make it inaccurate. You can go to tirerack. Com and they will have a tire diameter guide and suggest the proper size for your car.
