Shredding tires on 2008 Highlander.

I own a 2008 Toyota Highlander Limited Edition with 27,000 miles and had it at the Toyota dealership yesterday for an oil change and tire rotation. I was informed that it needs 4 new tires because there...


whats the tread depth of the four tires. If there less than 3/32" than your due for new tires. You are required to have at least 2/32" for your vehicle to be legally on the road in the U.S.. Anything less than that and your on borrowed time. Traction on wet roads or snow will be greatly reduced.

If the sticker shock is getting you upset than shop around. Your driving a nice riding vehicle with some incredible safety features. Don't skimp on ride quality by going with a cheap off brand tire.

Goodyear wrangler silent armors, Dunlop A/t's, and Brigdestone trailcomp t/a's are my top three tire choices.

If you concerned about the low mileage and being due for tires thats about the norm for Toyota's O.E. tires across the board cars or trucks.

Our 08 toyota highlander 4 wheel drive we bought new, now at 25,000 our tires are shot. We took it in to have the tires rotated and they all have tears, Now we are getting the run around from everybody....


if air was check at every oil change and tires rotated every 9,000 miles , and an ailgnment every 2 years then tires should be good,when you say tears do you mean cracks and cut like marks on the tire, if so they will not help. most dealers blame the tire maker instead of making so deal with you to keep you buying toyota,if you have receipts from rotating then call toyota corp, talk to someone there, good luck.

2008 highlander hybrid tire 16,000miles and coming apart


Wow! That is terrible. I checked, and sure enough, they are cra_ tires, see the below site for other complaints. It is a shame Toyo and Toyota don't offer a substantial credit/replacement to fix this obvious problem. It would be the 'smart' thing to do, as I'll stay away from Toyo brand now, and stick w/ Honda instead of Toyota. Thanks for bringing it to the attention of the public, it's apparently all you can do. I would send a letter to your state's attorney general's office with your story, and also your state motor vehicle consumer division, which handles complaints on garages, dealerships, etc. Also send your info to a local consumer advocate on tv or in the newspaper, the more you make a stink about these garbage tires, the better chance you'll get some kind of compensation. I don't consider $600 a break in price at all. Good luck.http://www.autopedia.com/APBB/Forum1/HTML/001075.html

Toyota Highlander 08 Tires Shredding & Shot


Check your warranty book, The tire manufacturer provides a warranty as well. You can also sue them in small claims court for the full replacement value. Sometimes sending them a notice of intent to sue is enough to motivate them

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!
