Use the compact spare tire temporarily, and only in an emergency.

When using the compact spare tire

As the compact spare tire is not equipped with a tire pressure warning valve and
transmitter, low inflation pressure of the spare tire will not be indicated by the tire
pressure warning system. Also, if you replace the compact spare tire after the tire
pressure warning light comes on, the light remains on.

Install the compact spare tire on one of the rear wheels of the vehicle. Perform the
following steps and fit tire chains to the front tires: 1. Replace a rear tire with the compact spare tire.

2. Replace the flat front tire with the tire removed from the rear of the vehicle.

3. Fit tire chains to the front tires.

CAUTION:
Replacing a flat tire
Observe the following precautions to reduce the risk of death or serious injury: Do not touch the disc wheels or the area around the brakes immediately after the

Never use oil or grease on the wheel bolts or wheel nuts.

Oil and grease may cause the wheel nuts to be excessively tightened, leading to bolt or disc wheel damage. In addition, the oil or grease can cause the wheel nuts
to loosen and the wheel may fall off, causing a serious accident. Remove any oil or
grease from the wheel bolts or wheel nuts.

Have the wheel nuts tightened with a torque wrench to 76 ftlbf (103 Nm, 10.5 kgfm) as soon as possible after changing wheels.

Failure to follow these precautions could cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the tire to fall off, resulting in death or serious injury.

When installing a tire, only use wheel nuts that have been specifically designed
for that wheel.

If there are any cracks or deformations in the bolt screws, nut threads or bolt
holes of the wheel, have the vehicle inspected by your Lexus dealer.

Failure to follow these precautions could cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the tire
to fall off, resulting in death or serious injury.
