#1 of 123 What are tire replacement for 04+ Quest?
Jun 21, 2006 (1:34 am)
It's about time to replace the tires (29k) not that they need to be replaced although close, but I feel there are better choices out there. Since there is no exact replacement tires available, I would like to know what other tires people are using for replacement and please also provide reviews for the replacement tires if possible. Thanks in advance.

A lot of people are moving up to 235/60-16 tires since the OEM size is a Goodyear exclusive. This size gives you more options and keeps the handling of the vehicle the same. Some have dropped to a T-rated tire which gives a slightly softer ride than H-rated tires.
I'm in the same boat. I have 39k and need to get new tires. A couple of folks have gotten Avid TRZ which is a very nice tire. But any tire other than OEM will be better.
#3 of 123 Tire pressure sensors and 235/60/16 tires

So does the different size tires affect the tire pressure sensors in any way? That's one of the concerns I have before jumping onto different size tires, even though from reading others post that it didn't appear to be a problem. Just want to make sure. When replacing tires would there be extra steps to make sure the sensors are intact?

I haven't had any problems with mine - replaced the tires in 11/05 and the sensors still work fine - you just want to make sure the installer knows that they are there to be careful when handling the wheels. I went with Toyo Open Country H/T tires in 235/60/16 and they've been great. It is an SUV/Van tire that is designed for all season highway use. Went through this winter in Chicago and they were much better than the original Goodyears. Cost less too.
#5 of 123 Tire size 235/60/16 experience
May 29, 2006 (7:33 pm)
Hi, I have the same problem with tires as everyone else, crappy OEM Goodyear's ! I was wondering if anyone has actually put different size tires, particularly the 235/60/16, on their van and have driven a fair amount of mileage. Wanting to know what results you have gotten from driving, handling, too big for the wheelwell??, etc...and what brand tire you put on the 04 quest. I am needing some new tires here soon and looking for some info.
Thanks for the help!
#6 of 123 I got rid of my OEM Tires
May 29, 2006 (9:53 pm)
At 23,000 miles I got rid of the Goodyears. As many have stated in this form they have been very disappointing. At 14,000 miles two of the Goodyear's were out of round and couldn't be balanced. I had them replaced under warranty( prorated I paid $50.00 for each.) Now at 23,000 miles a third tire (one of the originals) was having balancing problems. Even though they have plenty of tread life I decided to dump them.
I had Yokohama Avid TRZ tires put on. They are Yokohamas premium all season touring tire. They are 235/60/16.
Wow! From my initial test drive I must say these tires are impressive. In many ways this feels like a different van. The most noticeable difference is how much quieter the van is. They absorb bumps much better and give a noticeably more comfortable ride. The van seems to handle better. I think the added width makes it feel more secure.
I bought them at Discount Tire. They matched Tire racks price and I received a $60.00 credit for the old tires. Out the door I paid $381.00. I will periodically report back my impressions of the tires as I put more miles on them.
They also have an 80,000 mile tread warranty.

Thx for the coaching on the Yoko Avid TRZ's as replacement tires. I am now shopping for them in the Atlanta area.
However, when I called my local Discount Tire store, and these tires were not listed in their inventory.
Can you share the location of the Discount Tire store that you used, and I will have my local store contact them for the appropriate internal inventory number, etc for these tires.

Yokohama does not make these tires in the OEM size of 225/65-16 which is why they probably did not show up in the inventory (only goodyear makes this size). Make sure you ask for 235/60-16. They should have that size. This size is probably the next best fit outside the OEM that retains the same handling.

Dtownfb is right, make sure you are asking for the 235/60/16's. Also, my local discount tire did not have the Yoko AVID TRZ's. They don't normally carry them, but the manager was able to order them out of California( I live in Phoenix). I believe Discount tire in California carry them. They shipped them out and they arrived in four days.
I just drove to San Diego, from Phoenix on my new tires. I still have nothing but praise for these tires.
#10 of 123 Cold PSI in my new tires?
Jun 06, 2006 (9:09 am)
As I stated back in post #1977 I replaced the OEM tires with Yokohama Avid TRZ tires (235/60/16's). I'm trying to figure out the cold inflation psi. When I got home from having them installed I checked the cold psi, the next morning, and it was 33 psi. I'm guessing that is what they set it at at Discount Tire. I called Discount and they said to set it to what ever the OEM cold psi was, which is 35 psi. Since it is a different size tire with a lower speed rating ( T instead of H) wouldn't the cold psi be different?
