Multiple Tires

Now, it may be time for your next question: What do all of those numbers and letters mean? We’re glad you’ve asked, and we’re happy to explain. We’ll use the “Type A” tire for an example here. The “225” refers to the width of the tire in millimeters, going from sidewall to sidewall. The “R17” refers to the radial construction of the tire and the diameter, which in this case is 17 inches.

To get the most out of your tires, inflate them to the proper pressure. Type A, B, C, and D Lexus IS tires should be set to 36 PSI for both the front and back.

Checking Your Tires at Home

Checking Unbalanced TireThere are some things you can do from home to prepare your Lexus IS tires for the roads. Check the treadwear indicators and see if they’re showing on the tires. You should also look for any uneven wear, like excessive wear on only one side of the tread.

If the treadwear indicators are showing on a tire, it’s time to replace the tire. A tire rotation is the best way to combat uneven tire wear. Tires should be moved from front to back every 5,000 miles to ensure even wear and tear. If you have any questions about tire rotations or scheduling service, contact our service center.

Use the Tire Pressure Warning System to Your Advantage

Your car comes with a tire pressure warning system, which uses tire pressure warning valves and transmitters to detect low tire inflation before there’s a serious issue. If tire pressure drops below a certain level, you’ll receive a warning letting you know that the pressure is low. Best of all, you don’t have to guess which tire is low, because the system will tell you.

Any tire that’s six years old should be checked by a technician, even if there’s no damage to the naked eye.
