">I changed out the 19-inch wheels on my 2008 sport at discount tire for 17-inch wheels and Michelin 50,000 mile m/s tires. Drives great, no problems, no discernible change in performance on the highway. I have much more confidence in these tires in the snow. Paid a total of $1,300 with a $300 rebate from Discount Tires. Lot's more rubber on the road and the wheels look fine. I selected the same tire size that is listed (along with the19-inch) in the user's manual. The Toyota service department dealer actually recommended a larger tire size until I asked them to confirm that using a tire larger than shown in the user's manual was acceptable, then they changed their recommendation. It's lilkely that it does not matter; the odometer is off by a fraction for either tire. Discount Tires replaced the sensors for the tires; that is not an issue.

I wonder if Toyota will revise the tires to a more common size when they update it in the next year or so?

I put Hankooks on my 2008. They aren't the original size, but they fit the wheel. I haven't experienced winter yet, but so far so good in heavy rain.

#574 of 793 Bridgestone Dueler Alenza Tires
Jul 23, 2010 (1:22 pm)
A year ago I changed the OEM Toyo A20 tires on my 2008 Highlander to Bridgestone Dueler Alenza 255/55/R19 tires. The Toyos had only 18K miles on them but the tread wear did not give me confidence that they would last through some vacation travel that I planned for last summer. My local tire dealer also sells Toyo tires and he highly recommended the Alenzas for their all weather service. After 12K miles, hardly any wear on my new tires and excellent results over the past year. When compared to other tires in the 245/55 and 255/55 R19 sizes, the Alenzas have any excellent combination of long wear, reasonable cost, and performance chacteristics.

Thanks. I'm in the Chicago area and will need new tires before the snow flies. I'm getting the ducks lined up now...

I put Toyo H/T tires on my Highlander last fall and got through last year's snow just fine - I'm in Omaha and you know what last winter was like in the Midwest.
I have 9000 miles on the new tires and they are hardly wearing at all so far.

Any onee try the Hankook Ventus AS RH07 in 245/55R19? Good price but I am leary of the new tire.

I was going to go with the same tire, just up one size to 255 until I saw that the 245 was available. Any review I've read on this tire is terrific. My problem is that Discount Tire says they're not available yet in 245 width while Hankook's website clearly says otherwise.
