225-65-16 tire will be standard on Chrysler/Dodge van. So, we will have more choice later of the year!

That's good news, carzzz, and explains the other choices now available. With a volume like the Chrysler vans, it won't be long and there'll be tons of choices!

I'm not sure that just because Chrysler/dodge has decided to use it that it will mean more choices. Nissan has a good thing going having only 1 size tire available for the Quest and Goodyear making the tire has a good thing going being the only maker of it. Perhaps other manufacturers might decide to make that size or Chrysler/dodge owners will be in the same boat as the rest of us.
I absolutely hate the Goodyear 225/65/16 tire. Very expensive, rated for only 30,000 miles. They are hard to balance as well as it usually takes the dealer two or three tries before they get it right and only if they "road force" ballance them. The balance problems usually appear to be manufacturer inconsistancies as I have one of them right now not that old but out of specs for roundness.
Hopfully though another manufacturer will start making the tire. I'll never buy anything with the name Goodyear on it again.

Gary, check tirerack.com, in addition to the present crappy Goodyear tires, 225-65-16 tires are now also available in General, Yokohama, and Michelin. All I can guess is that maybe these companies saw the Chrysler request and the potential volume made it cost effective for them to produce this size. This is great news for us Quest owners.

I still don't think you will have a problem. When I replaced my tires on my 2004 Quest, I asked the service manager (Tires Plus) about the tire pressure monitoring sensor. He said they were trained to handle these sensors since they are very common on today's vehicles. If you have any doubts, simply ask before they do the work. I would be shocked if a tire shop cannot handle this.

I called another Nissan dealer yesterday and they said they could calibrate the 2006 sensors to my 2004 computer for $34.95. They weren't sure if I would lose calibration for the 2004 sensors, though. I'll try a regular tire shop to see what they say about it all.
#91 of 114 Pirelli tires, anyone?
Aug 05, 2007 (3:10 pm)
Our van Quest 05 SE has ~21.5K, and it looks like the OEM tires may have to be replaced 30K. I have a few questions and would like to have some feedbacks.
First, some of you mentioned about putting the Yokohama Avid TRZ. On TireRack website, some Quest owners said so, but one of them although started out having a good impression said that he later experienced problems with these TRZ, almost to the point of regretting to buy it. If you have them, please give me some long-term feedback.
Second, I also saw that Pirelli P4 can also replace the 17 inc OEM on my Quest. Anyone has experience with them so far?
I'm also interested to hear about other brands if you have them. Reviews on tirerack website tends to be a bit a mix of positive and negative, and of course includes many car companies so it's a bit hard to get a good feeling for what tire may work or not on my van.

Look at BFG Traction TA's.
#93 of 114 Kuhmo tires on 04 Quest
Aug 08, 2007 (7:42 pm)
I recently researched tires via TireRack.com and comments from this site and decided on the Kuhmo Solus KH-16 in the 235/60 16 size. It's a 60000 or 70000 mile tire. We just came back from vaction and put 2000 mi. on them so far and I'm most pleased with performance/ride and at a great price. HUGE difference over OE. I didn't order from tirerack; I found a local independent dealer who ordered and installed. 4 tires for about $365 out the door.
#94 of 114 Yokohama now makes 225/65-16
Aug 21, 2007 (6:15 am)
First, thanks to everyone on this forum--I needed new tires for my 04 Quest and this discussion was very helpful. When I finally talked to a dealer, I learned that Yokohama now makes tires in the size recommended for my vehicle (225/65-16). Judging from the comments here, I was lucky that my tires held out to 52,000 miles, but they definitely have to go now!
