Lexus NX comes fitted with 235/60R18 103H size tires.
The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced today that since November 2021 it has been supplying its BluEarth-XT AE61 and BluEarth-XT AE61 Z・P・S tires to Toyota Motor Corporation for use as original equipment (OE) tires on an all-new Lexus NX, the first PHEV. The PHEV model is being fitted with 235/60R18 103H size tires.
According to Yokohama Tires, BluEarth is a global tire brand based on the concept of being “environmentally, human, and socially friendly. The BluEarth-XT AE61 incorporates the basic design and material technologies of YOKOHAMA’s BluEarth brand tires.
The tire’s superior driving, comfort and environmental performance make it an outstanding grand touring tire. In addition, a newly developed tread pattern enhances the tire’s wet performance, wear resistance, and stability, contributing to the all-new NX’s high-quality ride, says tyremaker.
The BluEarth-XT AE61 Z・P・S is a run-flat tire that conforms to the newly adopted EMT standard. In addition to delivering a softer ride than run-flat tires that conform to the previous EMT standard, the tire’s reduced weight has improved its contribution to vehicle fuel efficiency, it further added.
