TOKYO—Bridgestone Corp.'s Turanza T005 run-flat technology tires will be the standard tire mounted on the new 2017 Lexus LS sedan, the Japanese tire maker announced Jan. 12.
The vehicle currently is on display at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Bridgestone Turanza T005 RFT tires employ a newly developed sidewall reinforced rubber which helps the sidewalls to be thinner, the company said. They will be offered in sizes 245/45RF20 99Y and 275/40RF20 102Y.
The tire maker claims its RFT tires can go up to 50 miles at up to 50 mph after a puncture or a loss of pressure.
