2016 Lexus RX to Feature Long-Lasting Michelin Premier Tires

Lexus RX Michelin Premier Tires

When it arrives at US dealerships later this year, the 2016 Lexus RX will feature a new Michelin tire that wears in a way that maintains its grip:

Available on 2016 Lexus RX models, the MICHELIN Premier tire combines hidden grooves that emerge as the tire wears, expanding rain grooves that widen over time to continue to evacuate water and a unique rubber compound for increased wet grip. The result is prolonged safety and performance for vehicle owners in a range of weather conditions.

The first Michelin Premier tire was introduced at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, and was selected by Popular Science magazine as one of the Top 100 innovations of 2014.
