Fitting Your ES with the Right Tires

Tire FitmentWe want to make sure that your Lexus ES has the right tires. What should you be looking for when choosing tires for this vehicle?

Type A tires:

  • 215/55R17 94V
  • T155/70D17 110M

Type B tires:

  • 235/45R18 94V
  • T155/70D17 110M

Type C tires:

  • 235/40R19 92V
  • T155/70D17 110M

You may be wondering what some of these numbers and letters mean. Let’s use the Type A tires as an example. The “215” describes the width of the tire, measured in millimeters, running from sidewall to sidewall. The “55R17” includes the aspect ratio, construction of the tire, and wheel diameter. “R” means the tire is radially constructed, while the “17” means the wheel diameter is 17 inches.


We finally reach “94V” in this first example. This means it can handle a load of 1,477 pounds, while the “V” means the maximum speed the Lexus ES can travel. In this case, that’s 149 MPH. Of course, it’s always best to follow all posted speed limits, as these vehicles were tested on roads like the Autobahn in Germany, where there is no posted speed limit for long stretches.

When Should Tires Be Replaced?

Tire InspectionYou may want to know when the tires should be replaced on your Lexus ES. It’s worth your time to track the health of the tires as you drive. Replace them if the treadwear indicator begins to show on the tire. If there is any damage like a split or crack, it’s best to have it inspected by the Lexus technicians at our service center.

While external damage can be obvious, there may be internal damage to the tire. That’s why we recommend any tire over six years old is checked by a knowledgeable Lexus technician. Even if you don’t drive the car often, it’s best to check them.

Comprehensive Care for Your Tires

Leave tire care to our maintenance team to ensure you get the most out of them. A tire rotation should be taken care of to extend the life of your tires. Rotating the tires ensures they experience different spots on the wheels. In front-wheel drive Lexus ES models, that means moving the tires from the front to the back, and then crisscrossing the back wheels as they come to the front.

We’ll check the tire pressure, too. Tires should be properly inflated so you’re able to get the best possible performance and fuel economy.
