Lexus NX Tire Size: What’s the Right Fit?
Are you ready to enjoy the Lexus NX and everything it has to offer? You’ll want to be sure that your tires are the right fit. What tires can fit your car? Here’s a closer look.
Type A tires:
- 225/65R17 102H
Type B tires:
- 225/60R18 100H
Type C tires:
- 235/55R18 100V
You might want to know what some of these numbers mean. The first number, for example, in type A is “225.” That’s the width of the tire measured in millimeters from sidewall to sidewall. The “65R17” includes information about the aspect ratio, construction, and wheel diameter. The “R” means the tire features radial construction, while the “17” means the wheel has a diameter of 17 inches.
To ensure that your tires provide the best performance possible, they need to be set to the proper pressure. The Type A tires should be set to 35 psi for both front and back, while the type B and type C tires should be set to 32 psi. Keep your NX road-ready!
When Should Tires Be Replaced?
If the treadwear indicators start to show on a tire, then it’s time to replace it. If you see any damage like a cut or split, or the sidewall has started to crack, that’s a sign that there may be not only external damage to the tire, but internal damage, too.
Any tire that’s over six years old should be checked by an experienced technician. Even if you don’t drive your car often, or there’s no obvious damage, we want to be sure your Lexus NX tires are up to speed.
Caring for Tires
To even out tire wear and extend the life of tires, Lexus recommends a tire rotation as a part of regular service. This should be carried out at the same interval as a tire inspection, so check your owner’s manual for more information about when to have tires inspected.
Your car is also equipped with a tire pressure warning system. If the tire pressure drops below a certain level, you’ll see a warning light that lets you know this is the case. If you fill the tire with air and the light remains on, there may be an issue with the tire itself. We’ll work to find the proper tire solution.
