Back tires 2015 RC 350 F Sport RWD choices, cost, ride

Getting tires and negotiating prices takes a lot of time and effort. Any suggestions? Please be specific. The Lexus dealer wants like $800 for the 2 back tires for Potenzas. There are many varietes. I live in Florida, so I just need summer tires good in the rain. Also, looking for comfortable ride. I'd pay extra per tire if it means I don't feel the road everytime I drive.

I will post the deals I find and results. I have found Firestone to be awesome in the past at negotiating price with good tires and they usually throw in a road hazard package to make me happy. I'll compare with Lexus dealership. Will try to look into ordering tires online and having a shop install them as well.

Back Tires 2015 RC350

Do you find the Potenza to be noisy? My RC350 F Sport has them front and rear and, quite frankly, although they perform and handle well I find them to be aggravating, especially at low speeds and when coming to a stop. Is this common, or is it just me?

I have Dunlops on mine. A Toyota dealer suggested Tigi, but then my local tire expert, who I trust more, laughed when I asked about Tigi. They suggested Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 at $260/ea. I live in SC. I looked them up and tirerack.com reviews give a 4.5 star rating. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...Contact+DWS+06

I put Michelin Pilot Sport 4S on mine about a month ago - wow, so much better than the original Potenzas!
