I too have have the OEM Bridgestone Turanza EL42 P245/45R 19 tires . . .
Not a fan at all of these " TOO NARROW " tires . . .
The slightest " road grooves " gives a feedback to the steering wheel that hardly inspires confidence and sure handling . . .
With just 12,500 miles on my '16 QX50, it hardly warrants swapping out theses tires as there's plenty of tread left, and any decent tire swap will be about a $600 to $800 expense . . .
Curious if others here who have " upgraded " or changes tires can provide input on the matter . . .
Often times the OEM Tires are what the Manufacturer was able to get priced low in bulk quantity, despite the fact that it might not be properly suited to vehicle.
LQQKS like LQQX50 here needs more wheel time in the QX50 to wear those skinny Bridgestone Turanzas down and replace with a wider better handling tire when the time comes.
