Two Yokohama tire lines have been selected as original equipment on the new Lexus NX, the first Lexus premium compact crossover SUV.

225/60R18 100H -- BluEarth E51.

225/60R18 100H -- Geolandar G91.

225/65R17 102H -- Geolandar G91.

According to Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd., the BluEarth E51 applies the basic design and material technologies used in Yokohama’s BluEarth brand of fuel-efficient tires. "The BluEarth E51 enhances the vehicle’s fuel efficiency while providing excellent utility performance as well as a safe and comfortable ride suitable for a luxury SUV."

BluEarth technology is also featured in the Geolandar G91. Yokohama says it is "aggressively" developing tires employing its BluEarth technology, with these tires already adopted as original equipment on many new eco car and hybrid vehicle models.
