Finding the Right Tires

If you’re ready to take on the roads in the region, you’ll want to have the right tires on your Lexus ES.

Larchmont, NY | Lexus ES Tire SizeType A tires include:

  • 215/55R17 94V
  • T155/70D17 110M

Type B tires include:

  • 235/45R18 94V
  • T155/70D17 110M

Type C tires include:

  • 235/40R19 92V
  • T155/70D17 110M

Now, you might be wondering what some of those numbers mean. In the first category, “215” means the width of the tire measured in millimeters, going from sidewall to sidewall.

“55R17” includes the aspect ratio, construction, and wheel diameter. In this case, for instance, the “R” means the radial construction leads to layers running radially across the tire, while “17” means the wheel diameter is 17 inches.

Then, finally, we reach “94V” in our first example. That means it can handle a load of 1,477 pounds. “V” stands for the maximum speed the vehicle can travel, which is 149 mph. Of course, always follow all posted speed limits. This is simply the max speed the tire can handle.

When Should I Replace Tires?

When should you replace the tires on your Lexus ES 350? It’s important to keep track of your tires, because they get you where you want to go. If the treadwear indicator has shown on a tire, it’s time for a replacement. If you inspect the tire and see any damage, like a cut or a split, or any cracks that are bulging, that might indicate internal tire damage.

If a tire is over six years old, it should be checked by a knowledgeable Lexus technician, even if you don’t drive often or there is no significant damage visible to the naked eye.
