What kind of a price did they quote you?
I was looking around yesterday and Walmart quoted me for the 225/65/16 eagles $135. plus tax and mounting. And $128 for the Michlen MXV plus everything.
Another place quoted me Toyo 225/65-16 $130 plus tax but included mounting.
So I am still looking. I do have 45000 on this 04 Quest and so far haven't had any brake problems.

Has anybody ever heard of this brand? I think they are made in Korea. I see they are selling the 225/65-16 for $380 shipped from Florida.
Was wondering anybody had any experience with them.
#97 of 114 Snow tires on a '04

Got my 235-60-16" Blizzak tires ($82 each from Tire Rack) mounted up on steel wheels today, without the tire pressure sensors. Looking forward to trying them in snow this winter.

Installed the snow tires on our '04 Quest yesterday, they ride very nice with no interference issues. Handling in the snow should be interesting. Also, I'm noticing more and more variety of the 225-65-16 tire available on tirerack.com . Putting this odd size on the Chrysler minivan really seems to have inspired the tire makers. I'm really looking forward to getting rid of those awful Goodyear LS2's.

I am planning to order a set of Winterforce with size 215/70R16, and i am not going to get a TPMS. How do you disable the system?

carzzz, what people have been generally using for the '04+ Quest is 235-60-16 for a suitable replacement.
On our '04, I run no TPMS for the snow tires and the monitor shows nothing but ** for each tire pressure. No need to disable anything.

I ran 235-60-16 on a set of alloy chryser wheels I bought for $75 last winter. I think they came off an Avenger. NO TPM's and like exploder said just a bunch of ***. It is really nice not having to swap tires & wheels at $50 a whack.

I have heard that narrower tires have better traction during snow, and also see tirerack recommended size 215/70R16. I am going to try narrower tires. It should do a lot better then OEM.

Be very careful going with that size tire on the Quest. You will change the driving characteristics of the van. If you need better traction in the snow, get dedicated snow tires.

I'm looking into new tires to replace my Quest OEM Goodyear Eagle LS2. It looks like the Yokohama Avid TRZ is very popular because it's now backordered everywhere I look. I'm now considering the Michelin HydroEdge. Does anyone on this forum have experience with them? I greatly appreciate any input.
