Lexus Tire Issues

Asked by Aug 12, 2010 at 10:01 PM about the 2002 Lexus ES 300 FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello, I have a Lexus ES 300 2002. Few months ago, I started hearing loud road noise coming from front tires that would increase with the speed, I was told that tires had feathered due to bent front shocks and I would need new shocks for front,  I had replaced these same shocks in 2007 and put on 40,000 miles since.  I had also bought 4 new Michelin Weatherwise from Costco in 2008 and put on 30,000 miles since. Also, my car is suddenly giving me from 25 miles/gallon to 13 miles per gallon. Please advise.

first check yout tire pressure,front psi should be 35 to 40 psi rear 35 psi.have you tried any fuel injector cleaner,seafome injector cleaner is the best,just put it in a full tank of gas,try changing your fuel filter,and have your mass air flow cleaned ,checked if bad,replace.MICHELIN tires do have a small amount of road noise,which is normal due to the tread desighn.
