Need new tires for 2006 Toyota Highlander

I have a 2006 Toyota Highlander with 225/70/16 tires on it. I live in north Texas where heat is more an issue than any snow or ice. I'm at my 30K service appt right now and have learned that I need 1-2 new tires and wheel alignment. The car currently has its original tires which are Bridgestone. The Toyota dealership has Goodyear Integrity tires here they could put on it. I called a Goodyear shop near my house and they suggested Toyo Open Country HT tires. I want safe, quiet, smooth riding, best mileage tires for the car. I don't drive off road much and I usually drive around the DFW metropolitan area with 1-2 times a year cross country driving on the interstates.

The duelers work pretty good for me. But if I had the money Michelins are the best.

How do I reset the low tire pressure warning light on my 2006 highlander


Once ALL tires have the proper amount of air pressure in them the computer will reset the light. This may take as long as a couple of days (depending on how long you drive the car). Some take as long as 30 minutes of continuous driving to reset.

However, you need to be sure that ALL tires are properly inflated, EVEN THE FULL-SIZED SPARE, if you have a full-sized spare tire.

2006 Highlander V-6 AWD,(not Limited Ed). I Live in colorado, drive about 30k /yr, need tires that will handle the snow/ice and hopefully last for 45k, suggestions?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

In a word, finding tires that will handle snow and ice, and last for 45,000 miles is a difficult task.

Tires that perform better in the snow are traditionally 'softer' tires, and are not going to last 45,000 miles, due to the inherently softer tread composition..

We here recommend Bridgestone "Blizzak" winter tires. We have found their performance on snow to be simply tremendous. I would get come Blizzaks installed if I were you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.

My Toyo tires on 2008 Toyota Highlander are worn out at 22000 miles. These are the worst tires I have ever had on a new car. I trade about every 3 years. These tires are unacceptable. Toyota will not do...


Toyota didnt make the tires, so I would not think they would. Contact TOYO. but I doubt they would either. Car Manufactures do not put the best tires on, they send out for bids, and the tire company with the best bid wins.

Maintenence required light and tire pressure lights will not go off after oil change and tire rotation on my Toyota Highlander. How do I turn them off?


The maintenance light needs to be reset manually. See my Tips and Tricks on this website for additional information on how to reset it.

You should also check your spare tire for proper inflation. It will set the tire pressure light, as the spare is monitored also. If all 5 tires are OK, you may have a malfunctioning tire pressure sensor. If the tires have been changed recently, people with older tire machines have been known to break the sensors regularly, by mistake.

I have a 2008 highlander hybrid limited


Contact the Toyo company. toyota will not help you on this one. You need to check to see if there is unusual shredding or peeling or possibly chunks coming off the tires. That is what happened with mine at 14K miles and I am in the process of getting them replaced. Toyota service told me they thought it was normal wear. It was not. After I contacted Toyo, they told me to go to a toyo dealer and have them call the company back. They offered me 100% if I put the same A20 tire onthe vehicle and 70% (100% for unused spare) if I put the new Toyo HT. I chose the latter since it has a 60K mile warranty. What I also found out is the A20 tire is not the same one you can buy now. The new one is the A20A. The original A20 was made specifically for Toyota at their request as an OEM tire. Toyota should have some liability in this and I am fighting them for the 30% cost, but am not holding my breath they will help.
Then only manufacturer of the 245/55R19 is Bridgestone and Toyo at this time.

19" FACTORY TOYO TIRES SHREDDING


Toyo®, Exclusive Tire of 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Limited Grade
September 20, 2007– CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corporation announced today that the Toyo® Open Country® A20 is the exclusive tire of Toyota’s all-new 2008 Highlander Hybrid, Limited grade. In addition, the Open Country® A20 is original equipment on several other models of the 2008 Toyota Highlander, both hybrid and gas.

The Open Country A20 achieved exceptional low rolling resistance performance making it ideal for the hybrid model. The tires were also specifically designed to reduce noise and improve both wet and dry braking for added safety.

Based on the model and trim level of the Highlander, the Open Country A20 comes in two sizes: P245/65R17 105S and P245/55R19 103S.

Toyo manufactures and distributes a complete line of replacement tires for high performance cars, luxury vehicles, light trucks and SUVs as well as tires for commercial trucks, buses and off-road and construction applications.


I'm surprised if it's so good at braking that it has not ripped my entire tire tread off as technicians say the treat is separating well before its time!
