2007 is Lexus less then 40,000 mi car purchased brand new, tires keep going bad on them purchased the car brand new.2009 was told by Lexus car needed a new set of tires because tread was running low, with no reason as to why it happened.got the new set of tires.summer 2010 driving on hwy tires came off car (front pass tire) had to replace tire, Lexus said probably lost air and came off, about 3-4 months later, same thing happened again. Lexus said needed new tire again and that was it. Purchased the new tire again, now the rear right tire is doing the same. Somethings not right with these tires keep taking to Lexus they are not doing a through search to check the problem out. Went to Goodyear since that's who made the tires, they said it needs new sealing and if Lexus would have looked they would have known that. This is very scary to drive this car at this time with this issue steady happening. Lexus outta be ashamed of themselves. I hate this lemon I have because I keep money into it and it keeps having issues.

There appears to be a design defect relative to the clearance of the front tires with the wheel wells. I was driving on the freeway and suddenly heard a loud thumping which I assumed was the tires because as I slowed, the noise slowed and then stopped. I got to my destination only a few minutes away and checked the tires to find that the furthest interior 1 inch of tire tread of my right tire had been ripped off and exposed a portion of the steel radial. The remainder of the tread of the right tire was in tact, and had about 1/4 inch of tread, indicating to me that the tires were not worn down at all. I had 33,000 miles on the car, nearly all freeway. I believe that the tires make contact with the inside of the wheel wells when you attempt to turn as tight as possible, as in making a U-turn. I base this on my recalling making sharp U-turns and hearing a rubbing/grinding sound coming from the tires. I went to the Lexus dealership in glendale, ca, and informed the service department of my belief and showed them the tires. They stated that the tires were not drivable (which was obvious) but that it was just normal wear-and-tear. I then showed them the remaining tread on the tires and their excuse was that the alignment must be off and causing that part of the tire to wear quicker. They rejected my demand that they replace the tires on grounds that the car had a design defect. I was forced to buy replacement tires at my expense.

Consistent bubbles on stock dunlop sport tires. I have replaced them approximately 5 times with only 27,000 miles on the vehicle.
