2013 Highlander Limited - 62,386 mi. Time to replace the original tires, not down to the wear bars but winter is here and don't want to push my luck just to get a few more thousand miles out of them. What tire choices do you recommend for all season tires that are quiet on the highway?

BRIDGESTONE DUELER H/L400 is the OEM tire. Looking to see if there are other tires (brands) out there as quiet or quieter on the highway.

I'd say the best way besides word-of-mouth recommendations would be to review tires on both Tirerack and Discount Tire, both of which offer professional reviews for the tires including quietness, and of course consumer reviews are pooled as part of the detailed list of a particular tire's qualities, and again, including road noise/quietness. Just a suggestion.

I have the Goodyear assurance fuel max, they can, etc with the car and are pretty quiet and grip quite well in the snow. Based on reviews, I think I'm going to get the Firestone destination le2 next time

That's almost double what I got out of my HL 400's, not bad. Having had those, dueler alenzas, goodyear assurance CS Tripletreds, and now michelin defender LTX M/2...the michelins are the best I've had in all conditions. However life is lousy on all of them, though my HL eats tires for breakfest...

I just purchased a set of Continental Crosscontact LX20s to replace my GY Tripletreds which I, overall, really liked. Got about 50K out of them. But they got real noisy recently and the tread on the edge of the tire started to break up. Not sure what that was about as I always had the right pressure in the tires and rotated. Anyway, not pushing Pepboys, but they have a great deal on the Continentals at $132.99 (for 245/55/19) after instant rebate. I could not find a good deal on the Tripletreds.

michelin LTX are hard to beat for performance all around, like others have said read reviews on tire rack. put in your tire size and sort by best reviews

I just put on Michelin Defender LTX M/S and they are way above the OEM Toyo Open Country tires as far as traction in the snow.

Continental Crosscontact LX20s 245/55/19 on my HL.

Drive conservatively

Maintained 33psi

Pro's: Picked up an extra 2 mpg, good grip on dry and wet, quiet.

Cons: Wear is even but, longevity is not going well, o'k in snow. Not for the timid on packed or partially frozen surfaces.
I suspect they will be replaced after about 35k miles

Conclusion: Nice tire - would not purchase again due to cost/wear

I second your findings on the LX20s. They were great, until they weren't, especially in snow/ice/rain in MA. Lost the tread after ~33k miles, which is a far cry from the 70k they are rated for. I'm having the Michelin Premier LTX installed today, I hope they are a better replacement.

My next tires will definitely be the Nokian WRG3 SUV All-Weather tires. They seem to have very high ratings, they perform better both summer and winter but wear out faster. They are rated at 50K which is prob like 35K or so but I dont drive more than 6-7k a year so thats ok for me and knowing I am covered on all weather conditions makes it worth it for me. Michelin has a similar tire called crossclimate but they don't sell that in USA. One problem is to find the Nokian tires but tires-easy.com seem to carry them and it is around $720 for a set of 4 for my 2010 limited.

I have Goodyear Tripletreads. I've had them now for 10k miles and they are good looking quality tires that work well in all weather conditions. However, they are not cheap tires.
