Help extend the life of your tires while optimizing performance, safety, and fuel efficiency by following a few tips for tire care and maintenance.
Maintaining the correct tire pressure has many benefits:
The Tire Pressure recommendation for your Lexus can be found in your Owner’s Manual, on a label on the driver’s door pillar, or inside the glove box.
For additional safety, your Lexus may be equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System. While this system keeps you informed about your tire pressure, it is no substitute for regular tire maintenance. Lexus recommends regular, first-hand visual inspection of your tires, as well as tire pressure checks.
Early and regular tire rotation is one of the best ways to help extend the life of your tires. Doing so will:
Advanced or unusual tread wear can reduce your tires’ ability to grip the road, especially in adverse conditions. It can impact:
Your Lexus Dealership regularly checks tires for damage or uneven wear and measures tread depth. Wear problems can arise as a result of:
If Tires are worn to the manufacturer’s limit – 1.6mm (2/32”) All-Season and 4mm (5/32”) Winter – or to the visible “wear bar” (small, raised strips of smooth rubber), your Lexus Dealership may recommend replacement tires based on your vehicle and driving habits.
Tires will age naturally, but you may be able to prolong their life through proper storage. Off-season tires should be stored on a flat surface such as a tire rack and in a cool, dry location. Store them out of direct sunlight to minimize the impact of ultraviolet rays and heat, and away from electrical motors or machines that may emit damaging ozone.Watch the Choosing & Storing Your Tires Video
Is your vehicle pulling to one side, or shaking? It may be time for an alignment inspection. Proper alignment helps to ensure that all four wheels have even and optimal contact with the road, which helps:
Lexus highly recommends having your wheel alignment checked regularly. Other signs that might call for an alignment inspection include:
*Alignments are not part of your regular scheduled maintenance, but an additional service.
When your Lexus vehicle was designed, the engineers and product planners carefully selected a tire size, considering many factors, including performance, safety, and fuel efficiency. Lexus recommends that you select the original tire size when selecting winter, performance, or all-season replacement tires. See your Lexus Dealership for details or visit our online tire store for tire sizes and recommendations.
This indicates a Passenger car tire in P-metric sizes. Tire sizes without the “P” may also be made for passenger cars, but they are “European” metric sizes and may have different load ratings or speed ratings than P-metric tires.
Tire width, measured from sidewall to sidewall in millimetres. This information is used to determine the width of the rim that the tire can be mounted on.
Aspect ratio, indicating the height of the tire as a percentage of the width. In this case, the tire would be 94 mm (235 x 40%). High performance tires usually have a lower aspect ratio (below 55%) than other tires because lower ratios provide better stability. When turning, cars generate lateral forces that the tires must resist. Lower profile tires have shorter, stiffer sidewalls so they resist cornering forces better.
Radial construction, indicating that the plies that strengthen and reinforce the tires radiate out at a 90 degree angle from the centre of the tire. This improves fuel economy in comparison to bias-ply tires, whose plies are at a 60% angle.
The diameter, in inches, of the wheel that this tire can be mounted on, regardless of whether the tire is mounted on a steel or alloy wheel.
The Load Index is a standard that applies to all tire manufacturer, classifying tires according to their load-carrying capacity, or how much weight they can support at maximum air pressure. In this case, a load index of 99 corresponds with 775 kg. Load indexes of the tires used on passenger cars and light trucks usually range from 80 to 110, corresponding with weight capacities between 450 and 1060 kg.
The Speed Rating indicator, established to match the speed capability of tires with the top speed capability of the vehicles to which they are applied. The letter corresponds with a maximum speed rating, in kilometers per hour. Popular ratings on Lexus vehicles include: S-180km/h, T-190km/h, H-210km/h, V-240km/h. Despite the capability of the tires to operate at high speeds, Lexus vehicles should not be operated in excess of legal speed limits.
Everyone has different criteria for selecting tires, from wet weather traction and long tread life to quiet ride and firm grip in ice or snow.
The experts at your Dealership are pleased to assist you in finding the tires that fit both your Lexus and your varied requirements.
Plus, you can visit our online Lexus Tire Store to find recommended tires and tire sizes.
Some Lexus vehicles come equipped with performance tires. Soft rubber compounds and shallow, narrow tread patterns maximize the rubber touching the road. Typically featuring a low-profile, performance tires have stiff sidewalls for sharp steering response and firm grip on dry pavement.
Facts & Features:
Some Lexus vehicles are equipped with All-Season Tires for good performance in a wide variety of conditions. With harder rubber compounds than performance tires, they have longer tread life and provide a quieter ride, but as conditions become more extreme, performance is reduced.
Facts & Features:
Winter Tires are designed to perform optimally, playing a crucial role in overall vehicle safety and performance, in both snowy conditions and cold temperatures. They’re recommended whenever average daily temperatures fall below 7°C and are legally required on all passenger vehicles in Quebec, between December 15th and March 15th.
