What are the best snow tires for a Lexus RX 350?

I just moved to a much snowier (and chillier) town, and I’m worried about driving my Lexus in the winter conditions. What are the best winter tires for a Lexus RX 350?

You’ll have to get used to driving in the snow, but the right tires do help!
Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady is the best winter tire for your Lexus RX 350. They’ll give you the traction you need to navigate slick roads. If you look at the tire sidewall, you’ll see a three-peak snowflake symbol that shows the tire performs well in harsh winter conditions.
If you’re more concerned about driving in icy terrain, go with the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2. This is the best tire for braking on ice, although it is pricier than the Goodyear Assurance option.
Both of these tires have advanced tread designs to grip slick roads. Plus, they’re formulated differently! Their unique rubber compound stays soft even in freezing conditions, so the tire performs its best.
Once you’ve chosen your favorite set of tires, be sure to check that your car insurance policy is just as durable. The riskiness of driving in snow calls for upgrading to comprehensive insurance to help cover damages in case a severe snowstorm damages your vehicle.
