#255 of 357 2005 Sienna limited AWD
Feb 16, 2010 (2:31 pm)
8 sets of tires in 85,000 miles. Always running bald on the inside from driving with only 5 PSI. Guess what the TPMS (tire pressure monitor system) light would never come on. I have spent more money Quarters and tires. Now I run around with regular tires( not run flat) a AAA card plus a can of fix a flat. The marriage between Toyota and Dunlop is not a very good one, now the public has to pay. Toyota has only greed, not safety in mind. And to think that they use to be a great company. Well just look at all the recalls for Japanese and Chinese company products. IT'S A CONSPIRACY I SAY. Sorry so many people are effected. And what do they say- Buyer be aware.

Is Dunlop a Japanese or Chinese company? It is really unbelievable that such a garbage is still on market. I hope Toyota will someday recall their Siennas for their tires, not only brakes and gas pads.

I think Goodyear owns 75%.
#258 of 357 Hi - anyone looked at 2011

Hi - considering the AWD 2011 Sienna and wanted to know - are runflat tires still an issue? How expensive would it be to replace them for snow tires?
Would AWD suffice or do I need snow tires for buffalo NY?
#259 of 357 Plus-sizing tires
Apr 15, 2010 (3:40 pm)
Has anyone gone a size bigger in 2004 sienna tires (ie.235/60/17) ? What were the results in terms of ride quality and handling? All inputs would be very much appreciated. I'm seriously thinking of doing this. BTW,the 2011 sienna comes in that size.

I'm looking and the 2010 models were available with slightly smaller 225/60R17 tires.
If you up-size I'd get those, since your 2004 is similar to the 2010.

I have a 2006 Sienna Limited 60,000 miles with bubbling alloy wheels. Have contacted local Toyota dealer "not covered since 3/36 warranty is over". "Not covered under extended warranty". Called Toyota's 800 number, and spoke to manager who is giving me the same "not covered since 3/36 warranty is over". Any suggestions as to who to contact next?
Thought this would be a no-brainer and fixed without any issues. Having previously owned a Toyota Camry, and currently owning 2 Lexus ES sedans, I am extremely disappointed with Toyota Motor Corp.

Suggest you go to http://www.nuckleslaw.com/software-negotiations-expert/toyota-alloy-wheels-bubbl- ing-toyota-quality-concerns/
Someone started an independent posting at this site with pictures for people with bubbling rims. There are over 50 postings of problems with Toyota rims bubbling. Only one or two has Toyota stepped up and made an attempt to resolve.
In my own case, I was well within warranty (2005 Toyota Sienna XLE AWD) when I discovered it and brought it to the dealer and subsequently Toyota's attention in 2006, so warranty means nothing to Toyota. All they did was offer me two "free" rims if I paid over $900 for the other two. You'll find at the posting above that others that had rims replaced had the same problems with replacements, and it includes Lexus. I ended up paying $500 to have all four rims refinished. I have had no problems with the refinished rims. They have gone through a winter, less cleaning than we performed when new, and hold up to rim cleaning products when we do wash the van so the problem is with the Toyota materials or process.

They only cover corrosion if it rusts all the way through, a rule meant for sheet metal panels but one that applies here as well.
#264 of 357 Toyota came thru with promise
Jun 11, 2010 (12:30 pm)
2006 LE AWD after 1 year and 18,000 miles runflat tires were woreout. Went to dealer in 2007 concerning tires and paint coming off the wheels. 3 months passed before the rep came to town and I needed to buy new tires before he came to town. Saw the rep about tires which I replaced and wheels that looked bad. The rep has the wheels refinished and tells me Toyota will replace the tires when these new tires are woreout. NOW 3 years later Toyota DID replace the tires like they promised. Had my doubts for awhile but they did what they said they would do.
