#2 of 351 Toyota Run Flat Tire Repair Kit for the spare tire
Dec 20, 2005 (11:01 pm)
I have just replaced all my run flat tires with regular tires. I understand there is a repair kit for a spare tire that Toyota can install. It goes behind the 60 split of the 3rd row.
Does anyone know if this is a permanent fit? or can it be removed if you need to put the seat down?

The Toyota part numbers for the "spare tire kit" are in this forum, and SiennaOwners forum. Search for the words "spare" and "deck". The deck part numbers differ based on carpet color.

I am little late in responding to your dEc message but here is what I did. I purchased a set of Yokohama's (what a great ride). bought a small compressor and carry a couple of cans of flat sealer. Actually the compressor, aftermarket fot the Smartcar,Corvette and other run-flat cars, came with a can of sealant. I tried the compressor to make sure it works and it does. I'm gonna keep on rollin and never look back. If I have my first blow-out after 50 years of driving, then I will call "AAA".
#5 of 351 AWD Sienna still comes with Run Flats?
Feb 12, 2006 (9:41 am)
I'm thinking of purchasing a 2006 AWD Sienna. I see that it comes with a temporary spare tire. Does this mean that Toyota is no longer putting run flat tires on the AWD Sienna? I like the AWD, but I'd like to have convenstional tires if possible to avoid the run flat issue.
Thanks in advance

I answered my own question - the 2006 does come with run flats. Will the dealer swap them out for regular tires at not charge upon request. If so, what are my spare tire options?

My 2005 Sienna run flats have worn out at 37k miles. I am wondering if I should purchase a new run flat set for 1200 dollars or non run flat tires (I have not had a flat all this time, my van has no room for a spare). If I purchase non run flats then the 4 tires on the existing rims and the cost for an extra rim and an extra tire combined is almost the same. My confusion now is what is the use of buying run flats if non run flats can be used with run flat rims.

I had one tire unevenly worn and below "tolerance" at 28,500 on '04 AWD. The dealer said the other 3 Bridgestone runflats were at 50% and recommended replacing at least 2 tires and alignment. I read a post somewhere that some had been getting free runflat replacements from dealer. I went back to the dealer and politely asked that Toyota offer me free replacement tires and heard how I was lucky to have gotten 28,000 and that it was probably an under-inflation issue, but they took my request to regional rep. They called back 2 days later and said Toyota was going to replace all 4 Bridgestone runflats, gratis. I forgot to ask if installation was free also. Service suggested Toyota was owning up to the runflat debacle.

Your regional Toyota rep did the right thing. But you actually WERE lucky to have gotten 28K+ miles from your tires. Don't expect any better from your new set.
