Michelin to equip the new Lexus LC 500 with NXT-GEN run-flat tyres.
The new Lexus LC 500 which is scheduled to arrive in spring of 2017, will now feature the super sport ZP tyres from Michelin pilot series with NXT – GEN run-flat technology.
Michelin engineers have for the very first time deployed a new (hybrid) sidewall technology for these tyres. The technology allows the run-flat tyres to maintain its run-flat capabilities while, giing it superior handling performance & at the same time reducing the tyre’s overall mass & rolling resistance.
These run-flat tyres will be available on the all-new Lexus LC 500 model, the specially tuned MICHELIN Pilot Super Sport ZP tyres are designed with a view to contribute significantly to handling & performance of the vehicle. The tyre sizes for the Lexus LC 500 are 245/40R21 for the front & 275/35R21 for the rear.
