Presented defect: The subject vehicles are equipped with run-flat tires with a sidewall reinforcement layer inside the tire sidewall, which aims to allow the continuation of driving for a certain distance at a given speed even if the air pressure reduces to zero through a puncture or other means. Due to an improper tire to wheel assembly process, there is a possibility that a crack could develop on the sidewall reinforcement layer and it could expand over time. In addition, tire deflection could become larger than usual, causing the temperature of the tire to increase. 

Risk and implications: This crack on sidewall reinforcement can cause an abnormal noise and vibration. Under certain driving conditions, such as highway driving with low tire pressure, Toyota has identified the possibility that portions of the tire tread layer could separate, causing a reduction of vehicle stability and increasing the risk of a crash.

Corrective measures: Starting from April, 1st 2019, Lexus dealers will replace the 4 (four) Run Flat tires by new ones. The remedy will be performed at no cost to vehicle owners The LS500h model is equipped with an electronic tire pressure warning system, which detects the low inflation pressure of each tire and alert through a warning light on multifunction display. If this warning light turn on before the Campaign starting date, the owners should take the vehicle to a Lexus dealer for inspection and, if necessary, temporary replacement of the wheel and tire with low pressure.

Service locations and scheduling: To schedule a service for your vehicle, you must contact a Lexus authorized dealer.
