Question about 2008 Toyota Sienna

1 Answer

Toyota Sienna winter tire

I just bought a 2008 Sienna with 215/65/R16 tires.

It is too late to buy winter tires for this season. Would a 215/70/R15 tire be acceptable as alternative? Would a 15" RIM fit on the car?

Thanks.

No. You do NOT want to put 15" rims on this car. That will change a lot of things, and they all will be bad. The 15" rims will create problems with the ABS, and the ABS will not work properly.
Secondly, the speedometer will be way off, as the speedo is calibrated for the 16s. Third, and probably most important, your handling will be severly compromised. Please don't do the 15s.
Its not worth the problems that you will encounter.
a FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be appreciated for my input.

I Have a Toyota Sienna LE 2006 with tires 215/65/R16, can I replace them with tires 225/65/r16?


A cheaper route and one that would keep your speedometer more accurate would be 215/70R/16. Slightly taller, less footprint, but more accurate and true to your actual speed.

I changed 1 of my valve sensor so i need to no how to reset the tpms light


By operating the tire pressure warning reset switch, the tire pressure warning ECU can be set to issue a warning at an inflation pressure that corresponds to the standard pressure of tires .Therefore, you must set the warning threshold to the proper value in order to comply with the local regulations .Operate the tire pressure warning reset switch only after the inflation pressures of all tires have been adjusted on the vehicle.To initialize the system, press and hold the tire pres- sure warning reset switch for 3 seconds or longer with the ignition switch in the ON position. When the system receives the
initialization signal, the warning light blinks 3 times (1 second on, 1 second off). During initialization, the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter measures the inflation pres sure of the tire, and registers the signals that are transmitted into the tire pressure warning ECU at a frequency of once per minute. The initialization process is completed when signals from all the tires have been received. It takes a few minutes .

Tire and Rim Problem


It appears that you have the wrong size wheels on the rear (17). Standard tire size on that vehicle is 265/75/16. You all so have a full size spare. Keep in mind that if this is a 4 wheel drive vehicle, damage to the drivetrain can result if you continue to drive with diffrent size tires.
