Seems to me that they should put the Yoko on Toyota and put Michelin on the Lexus.
I was actually looking into going aftermarket with a set of Vossens on a profile of tires meaty enough.... seen an example somewhere up to the spec i'm talking about.

Plus you can find them used for decent prices if used is an option you want to explore.

Better to just buy a set as the cost of the tires are offset by the potential cost an accident could incur. I once did a 180 spin but luckily it was on an empty neighborhood road so nothing happened but it could have been worse if I didn't have winter tires.

Studs would probably be illegal too but they are easier to get away with and some mainstream tires come with a design that allows for tire studs.
