SOURCE: 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!

Yes, for my 2008 3.5L Highlander, tools were required. First, make sure you get the right replacement engine air filter: there is a different part for the 3.3L and 3.5L engine. Next, as you pointed out, clips aren't used. There are two 10mm nuts that you need to loosen. They are captive (they won't fall out when you loosen them all the way). The one more in the front of the engine compartment is straightforward (once you get a 10mm socket wrench), but the one in the back is in a rather tight spot. I would suggest getting a long (6-8" shaft) 10mm nut driver. I managed to do it with a 10mm socket with a 1/4" drive and some determination. Also note that there is a wiring harness clipped to the top of a sensor adjacent to the air filter compartment; unclip it after you loosen the nuts. It works a little like a phone jack (RJ11) clip or a ethernet (RJ45) clip. Once the nuts are loose and the clip is off you lift up on the large black plastic housing marked 'see owners manual for air cleaner change' or something to that effect. (By the way my owners manual covered NONE of this.) The housing will tilt up and backwards towards the middle of the engine compartment. It won't come all the way off since it is attached to a few other things. Pull out the old filter. While it is out, you may want to wipe out the bottom of the filter compartment if you see any debris.
Note carefully that one corner is a "key"; it makes sure you install the replacement in the right orientation. Look at all four corners of the replacement part; one should look a little different. Toyota helpfully marks the replacement part with UP and FRONT. My Wix replacement had no mark whatsoever. Put the "key" corner on the corner that is more towards the front of the filter compartment and on the right side. Now put the filter cover back on. Note that one of the "hinges" goes into a socket that pops off when you remove the cover. Line that up first, then line up the rest of the cover, especially where the two captive nuts are going to go. While pushing down on the filter cover, tighten the captive nuts.
