The Hazard!

Run Flat Tyres: The subject vehicles are equipped with run-flat tires with a sidewall reinforcement layer inside the tire. There is a possibility that a crack could develop on this layer. This crack could expand over time, leading to abnormal noise and/or vibration. There is also the possibility that portions of the tire tread layer could separate, causing a reduction of vehicle stability and increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do...

As an owner of an involved vehicle, you will be contacted by registered letter requesting you to contact your nearest authorised Lexus Dealer to arrange a convenient time to have the repairs completed at no cost. Alternatively, contact Lexus New Zealand to discuss. See details below.
