The 2017 Lexus LS sedan features the Turanza T005 run-flat tire by Bridgestone Corp. as original equipment.
The car is on display at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Mich.
The Turanza T005 RFT features a newly developed sidewall reinforced rubber, Bridgestone says. The newly developed sidewall reinforced rubber features a molecular structure that makes cross-link of polymer chains more resilient to high temperatures. This structure enables RFT tires to be made with thinner sidewall, which offers a quieter ride and more comfortable driving experience.
Bridgestone RFT tires are engineered to go up to 50 miles at up to 50 miles per hour to safety after a puncture or a loss of pressure.
