TIRE PROBLEMS
By Kevin McCloskey on

Vehicle

2008 Toyota Highlander Sport 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Bought this fourwheel drive V-6 Sport for my wife who travels 60 miles per day. The car is great, the problem is with the original tires (toyo open country A20) wore out at 18000 miles. Replaced them with four brand new Bridgestone Duelers HL 400. ($900.00). These tires are equally as bad and down right dangerous in snow/wet conditions. I am now purchasing a set of winter tires for the car (bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 (another $900.00). Sure the car is great. Good luck finding a tire for the car that works in the ice and snow. This is too bad for such a highly rated car. Is it the fault of the tires or Toyotas fault for choosing such an odd size tire/tire design fault. Good Luck w tires!

Favorite Features

Great car other than Tires.

Suggested Improvements

Don't buy this car if you ever have snowy/icy conditions
