There is, but it’s hidden!
To find the spare tire on your 2018 Lexus RX 350, head to the rear of your vehicle and open the hatch to the cargo area. Pull up the floor covering, and you should see your spare tire hiding underneath.
What you might not see—at least at first—is your tire iron and car jack. The floor covering of the 2018 RX 350 is divided into two sections, so when you flip up the first section, you’ll see the spare tire. You have to flip up the second section as well to reveal the tire iron and car jack.
After that, you’ve got all the items you need to change your flat tire.
If it’s hard for you to change your own tire, consider adding
roadside assistance
coverage to your
car insurance
policy. This type of coverage will pay for road-side tire changes, fuel delivery, and other services you may need when you find yourself stranded on the side of the highway.
