Take them back, get your originals put on and go to Tirerack. Better yet call them up. They are PROS when it comes to tires and wheels for your car. In fact go to their website and look for tire and wheel packages, enter your year and model car and presto they show what the car will look like with the wheels you choose before you make a purchase. I've yet to buy a set of wheels or tires from the locals since I discovered Tirerack in 1997

#145 of 283 Noise and Vibration when turining and braking on snow
Dec 16, 2007 (11:13 am)
I have recently got 4 x all season Michelin Primacy MXV4 installed on my 2004 Camry LE 4 cyl. AT. The size of the tires is original and I keep about 32 PSI pressure in the tires. Everything was smooth until yesterday when we got our first serious snow storm in Toronto. The temperature was about -8 C, couple centimeters of snow on the road, when I noticed strong noise and steering wheel vibration during turns. All the turns were done with the speed under 20 km/h. Vibration/noise were constant when I was moving 10-20 km/h with the steering wheel even slightly turned. I tried turning steering wheel in both directions while standing still on the parking lot covered with the snow, the same vibration and noise were still present, but only when tire was actually moving against snow. On the same day I also could hear scraping sound from the rear wheels when braking - it didn't sound like ABS, because it was much more "distant" and break pedal didn't vibrate. All the fluids where on normal levels. Once I've reached my underground parking, the vibration/noise during turns and scraping sound during breaking were gone. So, it seems that both were produced by tires movement against snow. There were neither vibration nor noise when car was moving straight on snow.
Did anybody experience similar tire behaviour? Or could it be mechanical problem and nothing to do with tires?
Any information is highly appreciated.

It says performance tires on the spec. Actually what kind of tire used on the Camry SE V6? Are they summer tires? Did anyone changes them to all-season tires at no extra cost?

I highly doubt this car comes w/ summer tire only. It's a family car-- not a 350Z.

The SE comes with a choice of summer tires or all-season tires. There is no charge for one vs. the other.

Wow, there's something new everyday...never thought Toyota would offer summer tires only on the Camry, even if it's an SE. My old '05 G coupe didn't come w/ summer tires only unless I got a sport upgrade package.
FYI, from the Toyota website "SE available with All-Season tires as a no-cost option."
#150 of 283 2008 Camry spare tire
Dec 26, 2007 (11:51 pm)
In the 2008 Camry brochure, it says the spare tire is Full Size Spare except the Hybrid. Can anyone confirm that if it is a full-size spare or a compact sapre?

Well, I know Toyota went to a temporary, compact spare for the 2007 model Camry, so I'd highly doubt they've reverted to a full-size regular tire for the spare in any 2008 model.

At 24K, the dealer replaced a total of 5 struts on my 07 Camry LE. 3 front, and 2 back. My friend also have a 07 Camry LE, he had to replace 3 struts out of 4. Anyone have this kind of luck? If not, i suggest checking for oily firm on the struts. If it's leaking, bring it in to have it repace. According to the recept, the seal on the struts was bad. Anyone have this experience?
#153 of 283 New tire question
Feb 09, 2008 (6:16 pm)
I have a 2007 Camry SE 4cyl. It came with Toyo Proxies tires, P215/55r17's. These tires have 21,000 miles on them and they are worn out ( only 3/32's left on tread). They have been rotated 3 times. The tires are also badly cupping. I went to Discount Tire and they said either they have not been rotated or the srtuts are worn out. I am going to get new tires this week and see if the Toyo's are just cheap tires. Then, I'm also going to the dealership and see if the struts are bad. My question is this...will P225 / 55 r17 fit and perform without problems on this car or do I need to stay with the same size tire that I am replacing. I think the slightly wider/taller tire would look better but I do not want any clearance/steering problems. Any thoughts ?
