In this paper, we present new specific stellar models for the Large Magellanic Cloud. In order to take the observational uncertainties in the chemical composition into account, we have computed two grids: (X, Z) = (0.730, 0.010) and (0.739, 0.007). The covered mass range was 0.80 up to 125 . The effects of rotation can be investigated by using the gravity-darkening exponents that are available for each track. The tidal constant E2, depth of the convective outer zone, and the radius of gyration are computed and presented in a suitable format for studying the tidal evolution of a given close binary. The isochrones (and also those corresponding to the previous grids) will be presented in a future paper.
