The “R” means the radial construction sees the layers running in a radial manner across the tire, while “17” describes a wheel diameter of 17 inches.

In the Type A tire section above, the last information in the sequence is “91W.” That means it can handle a load index of 1,356 pounds and can travel up to 168 MPH. Of course, be sure to follow all posted speed limits when you’re on the road.

When Should Tires Be Replaced?

When is it time to replace the tires on a Lexus IS? You’ll want to keep track of tires because they get you from Point A to Point B every day. If the treadwear indicator is showing on a tire, it’s time to replace them. Or, if you inspect the tires and see any damage like a split or cracking in the sidewall, it’s time to have our tire experts take a look to see if there may be internal damage.

If your tires are more than six years old, they should be inspected by a Lexus technician, even if you don’t drive every day or there’s no damage visible to the naked eye. We’re here to help.
