I have almost 25,000 on my 06 and am looking forward to replacing the tires. I probably have 1/6th of the tread left on the factory set. Not sure exactly what I am going to go with but check out this site and look at the customer reviews for the tires as they can be very helpful. Goodyear Assurance Comfortred seems to have good ratings as well.
Go to www.tirerack.com, put in your year/make/model and then select best sellers and customer reviews.

Does anyone know what the rim size and bolt pattern is for a 2007 Sedona EX? My tire size is 235/60/R17.

I purchased Michelin Weatherwise at Sears, so far they have 25,000 miles on them, tread looks good. They are 97T speed rated tires, I had a hard time finding a 98H tire in 215/70/15.
Van has 65,000 miles, the stock Hankook were crap, 1 blew out, and the other had sidewall cracking...

So, I needed tires on my 2006, just under 30k, although I liked the Michelin's I could not justify $800.00 for a set. After much investigation I found the best deal was to go with the Hankook Optimo 727 series that are ranked in the 2009 consumer reports buyers guide for Z rated all season tires as number 2 just under Michelin. The awesome thing is pep boys had the deal with the 4th tire free. So all said and done 4 tires with 700 rating tread-wear and 100k prorated warranty for under $400.00 The only slight mod is tire size is slightly different from stock. Instead of 225/70/16 it is 235/65/16 great tires and tread life and slightly more rubber on the ground, which is a good thing.

We have a 2006 Kia Sedona and we need to raise the back end because we added a trailer hitch. We can not find any one who sells Adjustable Air Shocks for this car. Do you have any recommendations?

I have the 2006 Sedona EX and have a very good solution for you. After studying several options, excluding heavy duty shocks (because Kia is the sole source of their struts and shocks), I found a product that truckers use to stabilize the back of their trucks for pulling trailers. It is called the Timbren SES
Copy and paste this website to get a sense of it link title
I had a local Midas dealer order and install them for me. The Midas guy ripped me off on labor charges, but since he had helped me find this solution, I didn't get too agitated.
The timbren application essentially buffers the car, preventing it from sagging below a certain height. When I first got the install, I noticed a significant improvement in the overall stability of the vehicle and that bore out on the highways as well. Now, if I could only find heavy duty shocks for that thing, I think I'd be over any angst about getting a 4x4, for stability sake.
Best of luck

lavrishevo: How are the Hankook Optimo H727 tires after two more years? Is the 235/65R16 tire diameter close enough to the 225/70R16 size? Thanks.

Needing to replace suspension, but not sure if my Sedona has only shocks or shocks/struts combo. Can anybody advise? Much thanks!
