Is this legit? Should I trust them? I hear they are very good but I never heard of them. I've heard of their wheels but not tires so whats the word on this brand of tire?

I had Lexani on my 7 before TOYO, and I had road noise.. ended up changing them out twice under warranty.

IMO if you care about performance, longevity and a great ride, stick with a reputable brand for tires that tirerack sells.

@csmeance, I bought my 7 with 24" Forgiatos and put a new set of Lexani tires on them. The tires are ok but i'm going to change to some 128's because one of the Forgiatos got bent and we all know that thoses wheels are really pricey. The only Forgiato dealer near me wants $1500 for a new wheel or $800 for a new barrel. I feel you on the performance and longevity thing though...

24's with tires that are 20/25 series in sidewall height are just asking for a bent rim! It's good to hear that you are going to switch to the 128's! Forgiatos are expensive, but that doesn't mean a wheel repair company can't fix it for 200-300 dollars!

Just to elaborate a bit more on what I meant earlier, Continental, Michelin, Good Year, etc spend much of their income on tire research and making quality tires and pushing the bounds of what they can do. Rubber isn't very simple anymore! I'd be willing to bet that Lexani and a couple of the other tires that are on the market are probably rebranded tires from a central company in china or something.

If im not mistaken the Lexani tires are actually made by Nexen, so if you have run Nexens before...you can compare them in most regards.

Lexani LX Nine are a really good tire. I have them on my current ride an 07 GMC Yukon they ride better and quieter than the Yokohamas I used to have.
