As befits the flagship SUV of the LEXUS brand, the new and improved LX seeks to further refine
the luxurious sense of quality that only LEXUS can provide while steadfastly maintaining the
reliability, durability and off-road capabilities that have long been synonymous with the LX Series.
The Sumitomo Rubber Group has proudly supplied factory standard tires for many past iterations
of the LX Series. When developing these tires for the latest model LX, we took full advantage of the
advanced SUV tire development capabilities and cutting-edge technologies that we have cultivated
over the years while also adeptly accounting for current market needs. In order to support the
reliability, durability and off-road capabilities that one would expect of the latest model LX, we
anticipated any and all road conditions that an SUV may encounter while working tirelessly to
create tires that would make no compromises when it came to both on-road and off-road performance.
Our DUNLOP “GRANDTREK AT23” and “GRANDTREK PT5A” tires incorporate an innovative new
tread compound that provides enhanced performance in terms of fuel efficiency and wear resistance
while also reducing overall tire weight, thereby contributing to improved vehicle fuel economy and
all-around environmental friendliness. Our “GRANDTREK PT5A” tires also adopt a groundbreaking
new tread pattern that optimizes the distribution of stress force throughout the contact patch, which
is achieved thanks to the utilization of cutting-edge simulation technology. As a result, these tires
provide a quieter drive and enhanced steering stability, thereby contributing to the refined riding
comfort that one would expect from the latest model LX. In addition to further improving on the
most basic performance traits of vehicles (Driving, Cornering and Braking), the Sumitomo Rubber
Group is also proud to be actively engaged in the development of tires featuring performance traits
that actively contribute to greater environmental friendliness toward the ultimate realization of a
carbon neutral society.
The Sumitomo Rubber Group has defined our Purpose thusly: “Through innovation we will create a
future of joy and well-being for all.” Guided by this purpose, our group will continue working
tirelessly to develop advanced high-performance products while creating entirely new value so that
we may continue to respond to the diverse needs of our customers throughout the world.
