What is a "Nokian" and what do the WR initials mean? Never heard of the brand.

Tire "Warranties"?

We have less than 18K miles on our 2006 HiHy equiped with the OEM Goodyear Integrity tires. As I understand it, these tires have a 60K treadwear warranty. I realize that it's a pro-rated deal so no issues there. But my question is..."Has anyone been able to get Toyota to handle this at their service center or do I need to take it to the Goodyear dealership?" If so, can I select a "higher quality" tire when they do the replacement? We are almost to the wear bars in less that 30% of the "rated" mileage and winter is coming so I don't want to be slipping around on worn out tires.

Nokian

It is a brand from Finland, where they know more than a little about winter driving. Here is the web site: http://www.nokiantires.com/en/DEFAULT.ASPX

Follow up - The stock Goodyear Integritys were down to the wear bars after 21K miles. Toyota dealership would not do anything but I was able to get the local Goodyear dealer to give me credit for the premature wear. Retail on the original Integritys was $109. They gave me $62.37/tire credit and they matched the lower price of their competitor (Discount Tire) who was right across the street for a higher-end tire (The Fortera Triple Tred design tire) of $144/tire. After all was said and done it cost us $400 for a new set of TRUE 60K mile tires that are also rated equivalent to snow tires. They look aggressive but are actually fairly quite.

Canada Pressure monitoring system

Hi everyone, I am living in Sept-Iles, Quebec and I am in the process of buying a Toyota 08 HH, the "Basic" model here.

I know there is a pressure monitoring system on that vehicule with kind of sensor on each wheel.

I am looking for 17 inch wheel for my winter tire, but I don't know if I can install non-toyota wheel without those sensor???

I am shure if I ask to my dealer they will told me yes for shure, but your input about that interest me...

Thanks!

The TPMS is a direct type so it's mounted in the rim. If you buy a separate set of rims for winter, you will have the low tire pressure warning light stay on for the entire winter.

So yes, you can but the light will stay on.

Bonjour de Val-d'Or en Abitibi Buck! I will continue in English for the rest of this planet who can't speak 2 languages.

See a couple of other subjects in the HighLander 2008 Forums at these address.

You are not the only one looking for an affordable solution to have two sets of wheels. That is a major turn off to buy the Highlander. I will probably have to endure having the alarm light always ON. I'm still searching for a solution. I called Toyota Canada today and they will answer me.

Bon hiver!!!!

Hi Peterfreedom, thanks for your answer.

In fact, I never try a HH 08... Here, my Toyota dealer only have 14 cars in hand and no Highlander hybrid 08 for shure... I only try a limited HH from one of my neighbourg...

When I tried this car, I saw on the small LCD screen the actual pressure of the fourth wheel. Then I don't think I will be able to hide any alarm... Or maybe I won't need to hide any alarm...

For your information, at Canadian Tire there is a special right now on winter Tire: Michelin Latitude X-ice 235 65 R17 for 151$...

In the Yaris, the is one. When I had the 2007 Camry, it had one. The difference between the two: I could reset the TPMS in the Camry. So basically if I were to ever go aftermarket wheels, I could just reset the system if I did not want to transfer the hardware. See if this is possible with the Highlander.

Air pressure on goodyear integrity 225/65R17 ?

I bought a 2007 HiHy a few weeks back and it had 8400 miles..I just did a free tire rotation at a Goodyear dealer ( free with coupon )...He mentioned he filled in 35 psi on all 4 goodyear integrity 225/65R17 tires which is factory installed tires. Is 35 psi the max for a hybrid?

I dont have the manual handy...should be in there but I thought I will check?

I checked the sticker below the driver side door and it mentioned 32 psi on all tires

The tire sidewall has the maximum tire weight loading at a specified max tire pressure. The car maker just modifies the pressure based on the cars weight, desired road ride, etc. See link below:
