The new RX is being fitted with 235/60R19 103V size ADVAN V61 tires.
The ADVAN V61 is a high-performance tire under the ADVAN brand.
Tires being installed on the RX feature a specially designed structure that delivers the comfortable ride and stable handling.
Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced today that it is supplying its ADVAN V61 tires to Lexus for use as original equipment (OE) tires on the fifth-generation RX.
The luxury SUV has undergone a complete renewal, pursuing the Lexus Driving Signature performance and next-generation Lexus design.
Launched in Japan and overseas, including Europe, from this November, the new RX is being fitted with 235/60R19 103V size ADVAN V61 tires.
The ADVAN V61 is a high-performance tire under the ADVAN brand, Yokohama Rubber’s ultimate tire brand. The ADVAN V61 tires being installed on the RX feature a specially designed structure that delivers the comfortable ride and stable handling befitting a luxury SUV such as the RX, said Yokohama Tires in a release.
The tire also features a highly rigid cover material that contributes to an exceptionally quiet ride and a compound that reduces the tire’s heat generation and enhances its environmental performance, it further added.
Under Yokohama Rubber’s three-year (2021–2023) medium-term management plan, Yokohama Transformation 2023 (YX2023), the consumer tire business aims to maximize the sales ratios of high-value-added YOKOHAMA tires.
One of the key initiatives under this strategy is expanding sales of ADVAN and GEOLANDAR tires as original equipment on new cars.
