#264 of 351 Toyota came thru with promise
Jun 11, 2010 (1:30 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.

You are more fortunate than I am. I have a 2008 Sienna LTD with OEM Bridgestones. Treadwear at under 15K indicated replacement. I have not replaced them and will continue to ride on them (if I don't need to travel) until the wires are exposed. This is because from everything I've read, Sienna's are tire eaters. Yes, I am an aggressive driver, but this is ridiculus.
#267 of 351 Can I replace Run-Flats 2011 XLE?? Need Help.
Jul 10, 2010 (1:30 pm)
I recently purchased the 2011 AWD with run flats. Do not like the drive at all. I've tried to find some possible solutions, but no luck so far.
Can I replace the AWD tires with regular tires and risk driving around w/o a spare? Would this actually improve the ride on the car??? I I replaced the RFTs with regular tires, would this NEGATE my extended 100K warranty that I purchased when I purchased the car? Is driving around w/o a spare a crazy thing to do?
Any suggestions on what to do, tire suggestions -- anything would be helpful.
Thanks very much.

You could on 2010s, so that's very likey.
I don't see how it would affect the warranty, perhaps with the exception of the wheels themselves and maybe the suspension components like the shocks, but even that's a stretch.

I can't believe that toyota is still trying to use the run flat tires. I have a 2005 and have changed to non run flat tires. I carry an air pump, two cans of flat tire fixer, and AAA. Even if you can find a non run flat tire a tire shop that has been business for 35 years could not get the beads off the rim. After having replace 7 tires , Toyota replace 4 for early uneven wear I replace 3 more due to nails and I finally gaveup!!!

Replacing OEM tires on my 2006 Sienna XLE FWD (thankfully, not the run flats!).
Which would you recommend:
YOKOHAMA AVID TOURING S
#271 of 351 replacing dunlop rft with any non-rft
Aug 03, 2010 (9:55 am)
2008 xle awd and I have averaged around 18-20k with 2 set of dunlops. I think it's time to make the switch to non-rfts. The ride is harsh, tread wear is low-in the 300s- and they're loud. For those of you who have made the switch, what brand/model have you gone to and how has it changed your ride? I am worried about not having a spare, and was quoted 4-500 for the donut from the dealer. I looked at the option of a full size spare via toyota parts cheap .com has anyone gone this route?

I replaced the run flats on my 2006 AWD Sienna with Yokoham Geolander ATS's and could not be more pleased with them. They're much quiter (surprise), ride better, get 1/2 MPG better gas mileage, and really dig into snow and mud -- I live in central Pennsylvania and drive on mountain and dirt roads (even light off road) quite a bit. I have added a space saver spare that you can pick up at an auto wreck yard fairly cheaply. By the way, I converted it into a VW Westfalia-esque camper and it worked out quite well.
