Take a look at this link. This would save a lot of money and I am sure it will look perfect.

I posted earlier about my Turanza's being shot at 31K miles... thanks to all that replied... I had my choices narrowed down to one of 3 tires, they were the goodyear triple tread, goodyear comfort tread and the Toyo Versado Lx. Unfortunetly for me, the local goodyear store did not have the comfortread in stock and for some reason was having problem finding out thier exact cost... he had the triple tread in stock, but my god, the price out the door, including an alignment was $1079.00 Nearly 1100 bucks for tires and an alignment... Not for me thank you... Did some more calling around for Toyo's since I had read so many good reviews on the Versado.. Called three stores that handled them, got three different bids ranging from a high of 960.00 to a low of 760.00 ( including alignment, road hazard, nitrogen filled, out the door ) Have only had the tires on the car for 3 days now, but I can already tell you that they do ride smoother than the turanza's... Of course the versado is only a 40K mile "v" rated tire, but even at that they should last me a couple of years if not more.

Sounds like a good deal on the package. Keep everyone informed as to wear, any problems, ride quality, etc. Toyo makes a great tire, we had one set several years ago on a Honda (not the Versado tire). They were V rated, I think, and did fine. Enjoy the ride....

I bought TripleTreds for my '08 Avalon and the price came to $688.76 including tax. The Goodyear dealer deducted $140 from this for the OEM tires on the car (they only had 2K miles on them). The price of a single tire was $149.00. The car was new so I didn't have any alignment. They now have 36K on them and aren't really showing any signs of wear. They are really excellent in rain and work well in snow.

This is great to hear... I helped a friend of mine procure TripleTreds for her Suburu Outback to replace her Bridgestone Potenza's and they are the best tires she has ever owned! Did you replace your Avy's tires with a "V" or "H" rated tire? I won't need tires for my Avy for another 20K miles or so, but did check out TripleTred pricing and found around $200 for a "V" speed rated tire. The original MIchelen MSV Pilots on my '07 Avy are a great dry pavement tire, OK on wet pavement and are not very good on snow/ice.

The TripleTreds I got are 93H. The H is good up to 130 mph so I can't imagine needing a V tire which means you can go up to 149 mph. The fastest I've gone is 100 and normally not over 85 except in short spurts.

just curious, I put Toyo Versado's on my Avy just last week and the ride is much smoother than what I got from the oem turanza's... was wondering if the triple treds give a really smooth ride? My wife's vehicle will be needing tires in the spring and since I've already got the versado's on my car, might try the triple treds on her car for a comparison. appreciate your help.

What part of the tire should be mounted opposite the air stem???
I have read before but cannot find it now.

You may have heard there are dots on the sidewall, but unfortunately that is not 100% true. There are no universal standards or practices with regard to where the tire is to be oriented with regards to the valve stem.
If you find dots, they may or may not be the type the should be oriented with the valve stem, but there is no harm done if they are.
