Question about 2008 Toyota Highlander

1 Answer

My '08 Highlander Sport needs new tires. I'm considering the Bridgestone Alenza. It is a 255/55R19 whereas the OEM tire is 245/55R19. Any advise would be appreciated. Toyota dealer says I shouldn't do it, but all of the other tires in the OEM size have pretty bad ratings. Thanks

Hi,the 255/55R/19 is just a little taller ( 3/4--1" inch.) than the oem tire and should not be an issue to use, i took the 16" rims & tires off my 99 f-350 truck and put 18" rims and tires from a 2008 f-350 on it ( the dealer said they would not even bolt on!! but they bolted right up with no issues,and they improved my ride tremendously.) as long as you have enough clearance between tire and fender it will not be an issue at all. yz-maniac.

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.

15,000 miles and my Toyo A20 on my '08 Highlander


15k and they are shot is terrible. Toyo did have lots of trouble with these tires. Check this site for more info-sounds like you will have to fight like heck to get them to do anything though. Good luck'

Toyota 2008 Highlander Hybrid Tires are TREACHOROUS!


A small amount of tire glue is apply on the rim of the tire during mounting.

The tire glue is to ensure there is a good seal and easy mount (when the metal bar slide the tire into the rim).

Air can leak from the tire valve or the rim.

I would use soapy water to check the valve and valve stem for air leak.

It may be too small to detect.

The quick fix is change the valve stem..

Dismount and remount WITH TIRE GLUE at a REAL tire shop will be final corrective measurement.

If you DO NOT go off road and want get a small mileage increase then you can use a smaller tire and rim package.

245-65-17 tires will save a little on your wallet.

2" decrease in diameter reduce the weight and rolling resistance.

The ride feel will be different.

Do a little checking with your local tire shop before you switch.

Good luck.

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.

New tires Suzuki XL-7 (2007)


245/65R17 is a much more popular size however it is generally(tire sizes are not uniform) about 1 to 1.5 inches bigger in diameter & about a half inch wider. This means you will need about an inch more clearance when the front wheels are max turned, left or right. Also allow for suspension bounce. As far as type of tire: first decide on your priorities (ie..max traction, smooth ride) & then the choice will be easy

Looking for a different tire for Suzuki XL7 (2007). Currently has the factory tires Bridgestone 235/60-17 which are a strange size. Need to know if a Cooper CTS 245/65-17 will rub the wheel wells?? Any...


I do not know for certain whether the larger tires will fit; but here is how you can check.

The 235/60-17 Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II have a diameter of 28.3 inches, rim width of 7, section width of 9.3 and a tread width of 7.8. When compared to 245/65-17 Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II the diameter(29.5) is 1.2 inches larger and the section width(9.8) is 0.5 inch larger. The rim width and tread width are the same. You would need to check existing clearances and then compare to the additional size required to verify fitment.
The above data is from TireRack (see web address below)
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.jsp?make=Bridgestone&model=Dueler+H%2FT+D684+II&tirePageLocQty=

Tire Rack carries 5 different tires from 3 brands(Bridgestone, BFG, and Kumho) in the 235/60-17 size at $66 to $119 each. I have bought many tires from them without a problem. They do not carry Cooper tires.
