Lexus to Wear Bridgestone
Run-flat tires will be OE on LC500/LC500H.
Bridgestone has announced that its POTENZA S001L Run-Flat Technology (RFT) tires and TURANZA T005 RFT tires will be the standard tire mounted on the Lexus LC500/LC500h, new luxury coupé slated to launch in 2017.
POTENZA S001L RFT and TURANZA T005 RFT tires were designed exclusively by Bridgestone for the Lexus LC500/LC500h in order to achieve the superior driving performance of the vehicle.
The tires give the driver reliable control and also ensure a luxury ride. RFT tires also can help reduce the total weight of a vehicle because they eliminate the need for a spare tire, as RFT tires from Bridgestone can travel up to 80 kilometers (50 miles) at up to 80 km (50 miles) per hour to safety after a puncture or loss of pressure.
