Toyota is recalling about 6,300 model year 2018 Lexus LS 500/500h vehicles with run-flat tires.

Because the tires were assembled to the wheels improperly, a crack could develop on the sidewall reinforcement layer of the tires.

Under certain driving conditions, portions of the tire tread layer could separate, causing a reduction of vehicle stability and increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Toyota will notify owners and dealers will replace all four tires with new ones at no charge to customers if one or more tire(s) are run-flat tire(s) manufactured by a specific tire supplier.

The recall is expected to begin in late April.

Owners may contact Lexus at (800) 255-3987.
