Bridgestone tyres with run-flat tech to be OE on Lexus LC500

Bridgestone Potenza S001L RFT and Turanza 005 RFT

Bridgestone is to supply its Potenza S001L Run-Flat Technology (RFT) tyres and Turanza T005 RFT tyres to Lexus to be used as standard equipment on the luxury carmaker’s Lexus LC500/LC500h model, slated to launch in 2017.

Bridgestone says the Potenza S001L RFT and Turanza T005 RFT tyres were designed exclusively by Bridgestone for the Lexus LC500/LC500h in order to achieve superior driving performance and give the driver reliable control and ensure a luxury ride. RFT tyres also can help reduce the total weight of a vehicle because they eliminate the need for a spare tyre – RFT tyres from Bridgestone can travel up to 80 kms (50 miles) at up to 80km/h (50miles) to safety after a puncture or loss of pressure.
