Tires Revisited

2008 Toyota Highlander Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Review
As noted in my January review, I replaced the snow-scary Toyo Open Country A20 tires with Yokohama 235- 55x19 Parada Spec X tires. Had to go marginally smaller than factory 245- 55x19s in order to avoid either Toyo or Bridgestone (equally bad in snow). These two are currently ONLY 245-55x19 sizes on the market. Yokos transformed winter traction from truly scary to truly amazing. Smooth, quiet, handle better too. Perhaps not as well balanced...I will have balance rechecked soon. Tread wear an unknown at this point, but I would have traded vehicle if snow traction had not improved. Can't believe Toyota still specs these tires in '10, but maybe other recalls have occupied all of their time!

For Future Reference : If you have an Americas Tire/Discount Tire Center nearby, they should have 245-55/19 Yokahama YK580's or Michelin Latitude Tour models available. G2 SM, CA
