Tire Alternatives and Options for Your Dodge Journey

Tuesday, January 4, 2011 by Hunter Leffel
Been loving driving your 2009 Dodge Journey so much that it's time for tires? The Original Equipment 225/55R19 Kumho Solus KH16 is the only tire offered in that size. Lately, there has been very limited availabilty on that tire. Looking for some other options? 

Let me suggest changing to size 235/55R19. This size is only .4" taller and .4" wider than the original tire. That equates to about the width of a pinky finger. This size will fit on the factory 19 inch wheels. 

Here are a couple great options to take a look at.

Comments on Tire Alternatives and Options for Your Dodge Journey

Monday, August 8, 2011 by Karen Denton:
I was told no other tire would work. Is this true?
Tuesday, August 9, 2011 by Hunter:
If you currently have the 225/55R19 you can easily use 235/55R19.

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 by Jason:

What if we wanted to go with a 18" tire and wheel with same overall diamater? What tire size options could we use then? Is there an issue with wheel back spacing? Thank you.
Thursday, October 27, 2011 by hunter:
Hi Jason,
Thanks for your inquiry. The Journey can accept a 18 inch wheel and tire. I would be happy to discuss those options in detail with you. Just give me a call at 1-800-429-8355 ext 744
Thursday, November 3, 2011 by Louis:
Hi Hunter,
The number you listed can not be used from my calling area.( Canada) Is there an 18" alternative for the Dodge Journey 225/55R19?
Thanks in Advance!
Thursday, November 3, 2011 by Hunter:
A 225/60R18 will work. Of course you have to buy new wheels as well. you can call 574-287-2345 if the 800 number fails you. again my extension is 744.
Thursday, November 10, 2011 by Faith:
My boyfriend only needs one new tire... Can he run three 225's and one 235 without any problem?
Thursday, November 10, 2011 by Jeff Klaybor:
What is the original tire for a Dodge Journey SXT? It has TMPS
Saturday, November 12, 2011 by Hunter:
I would not advise mixing sizes on that vehicle.

Saturday, November 12, 2011 by Hunter:
We show the 2009 SXT has 225/65R17. Of course it always best to look at the tires you have on the vehicle to verify.

Wednesday, November 30, 2011 by mario:
If I change my Journey's tire suize from 225/55r19 to 235/55r19, will my snow chain I bought for the old size fits the new size?
Tuesday, December 27, 2011 by Chuck:
Will 245/50-19 tires also work? Thanks
Saturday, January 14, 2012 by pat:
Can I get a 19 inch tire with more tread for my journey cause its horrible in the snow or do I need to switch rims size for a bigger tread tire thanks
Friday, February 3, 2012 by Felicity Malata:

I am from south africa & I cannot get the dodge journey tyres anywhere in south africa, what would be an letrnative size 225/55r19


Friday, February 3, 2012 by H:
HI,THe alternate size we recommend is 235/55R19.

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 by Jim:
Does the changing of the tire size matter if I have an AWD vehicle? I'm not sure if that will affect the calibrating of that systems. Comments?
Wednesday, February 29, 2012 by Hunter:
With the alternate suggested size being .4" taller, there will be a 1.5% difference in distance traveled with each rotation. The industry guideline is anything within 3% is acceptable.
Thursday, March 1, 2012 by Bill:
Great. That sounds technical to me, but sounds like I should be ok with the AWD system and the 235 55 R19 tires.

Thursday, March 29, 2012 by Claudette:
I have a 2009 Dodge Journey AWD with 19" options. I now need new tires and original tire size not available. My mechanic suggested I switch to 16" tires and rims. Can I do this without causing problems to my vehicule?
Tuesday, April 3, 2012 by Hunter:
your vehicle can run a 16" setup. If you want to give me call I wil be happy to discuss options we have to offer you. I can be reached at 800 428 8355 ext 744.
Tuesday, April 3, 2012 by Jacqueline:
My 09 Journey SXT AWD has Kumho 225/55R19 tires on them but when I search your site for tires sizes based on my vehicle info I get results for 225/65-17. I'm not sure what size I should be purchasing. Any help??
Thursday, April 5, 2012 by Hunter:
You would need to purchase a 19" tire, be that the 225/55R19 or the alternate 235 suggested in the blog. A 17 inch tire will not fit on your wheels.
Monday, April 9, 2012 by Dave:
What affect will going from 225 to 235 have on the speedometer.
Monday, April 9, 2012 by Hunter:
The change in size will result in about a 1.5% error in the speedometer. Since the 225 is shorter, the 235 will be clocking a little bit slow.
Monday, April 23, 2012 by Phil:
Will 255-50-19 tires work on an 09 Journey, or are they too wide?
Monday, April 23, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi Phil,
Those are wider than I am comfortable recommending without any rub.

Tuesday, May 22, 2012 by Susan:
Need to replace all 4 tires on Dodge Journey R/T 2010 AWD , 27,000 miles steel coming through. I want to replace my 225/55R/19 tires that are hard to replace, costing well over $1,000 plus dollars. Will 235/55/R19 work and that is what most comments and reviews have suggested on replacing Dodge Journey tires.
Tuesday, May 22, 2012 by Hunter:
235/55R19 is absolutely the alternate size we recommend
Monday, June 4, 2012 by george:
I need to replace my 2010 Dodge Journey tires. Currently have p225/65R17 on the vehicle. Would p255/65R17 be to wide? Please recommend the various sizes that would work.

Thanks, George
Monday, June 4, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi George,
The widest size we recommend is 245/60R17 for the Journey in a 17 inch.

Thursday, June 7, 2012 by jeremy :
I have a 2009 dodge journey. i went up on the alternate tire size and now my speed sensors come on and grab the front brakes when going into a curb. How do i fix this problem? New sensors have been installed but same problem
Thursday, June 7, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi Jeremy,
A couple things, first would be verify running size 235/55R19 all around. That is to say all 4 tires are the same size. If all 4 are the same and is a size within the 3% rule, you may need some diagnosis at a dealer.
Friday, June 8, 2012 by Shannon:
I don't know what the numbers mean but could I use p235/75r15 on my 2010 journey sxt fwd?
Sunday, June 17, 2012 by Caleb:
Is it possible to use 245 55 R19 Pirelli tires on an 09 dodge journey Sxt FWD ?
Tuesday, June 19, 2012 by Hunter:
You would need 15" wheels to even think about 235/75R15. We show the SXT comes with 17" wheels.
If you are open to buying new wheels, our info indicates a 15" is too small to clear the brake hardware. You could downsize to 16" if you wanted, again would require purchasing wheels in addition to the tires.
Tuesday, June 19, 2012 by Hunter:
The 245/55R19 willbe about an inch taller overall. I am not able to guarantee fitment with that much of a diameter increase. If you want more sidewall, then buying 18" wheels would be a better approach. If you want to close the wheel well gap, then lowering the vehicle is the best approach to that.

Thursday, June 21, 2012 by Rika:
Hi Hunter,
Does 235/55R19 fit my Journey SE 2012?
Thursday, June 21, 2012 by Hunter:
It appears same fitment on the 2012, so yes, those will work.
Friday, June 22, 2012 by jeremy:
Ok. I went with all 4 new tires along with alignment. Went to the recommended 235/55/19. Great tires. however,when going around a left hand turn, sharp turn, the front passenger brakes grab and the traction control kicks on and causes the car to slow as if i am sliding. However, its not spinning or sliding. Took it to local Dodge dealership and had both front speed sensors changed to be sure. Did not help at all. So it was hooked to the computer(obd) system and checked for codes 3 different times. Nothing was found. Then it had alignment checked again. Perfect. Still front brakes grab on passenger side in curve. We are lost. After being to dealerships, local Napa mechanics, service, and new sensors......and $600 in unnecessary repairs we are at step 1 all over again. Everyone is puzzled! Any ideas????
Monday, June 25, 2012 by Hunter:
I tried to find your order by your email to document your issues, but was not able to locate. In any event, we have seen in some rare situations similar type issues with new tires. It is possible it works itself out after some break-in. You may want to contact the dealer you bought from for further help.
Tuesday, June 26, 2012 by Kim :
I have a Journey 2010. The tire size when I purchased it is 225/55R19. Is there another size I can use with this car? I saw online that I could use 235/50R19. Will this work?
Tuesday, June 26, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi Kim,
We recommend 235/55R19. A 225/50R19 will be almost an inch shorter and we would not recommend that much of a drop in size.

Saturday, July 7, 2012 by David:
I just bought the Yokahma 235/55/19 from tire rack . No Problem what so ever putting them on 2011 Journey RT. Much better than those crappy KUMHO ones.
Thursday, July 19, 2012 by Keeta:
Hi I have 19in tires on my 2009 and I was wondering if I can downsize to a 17in for price reasons, 1 tire is $243 and I can not afford that at the time.If I can what size in a 17in
Saturday, July 21, 2012 by Paula:
Hi I have a 2009 dodge Journey am almost ready for my 2nd set of tires as tread wears fast was wondering if I could move down to a smaller rim and larger tires and if so what wold you recommend? I just spent over a grand last August and they already need replacing so didn't even last me a year. Any information would be helpful like if I would need to add a lift kit or make any other changes and what roughly it would all cost. Thanks so much Paula
Monday, July 23, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi Keeta, You can switch to 17 inch tires, but it would require buying wheels as well.

Monday, July 23, 2012 by Hunter:
You can downsize your vehicle. The best way to view downsize wheel options and tire sizes is to shop by vehicle for winter product.
Wednesday, July 25, 2012 by Ross:
I am in Australia and my tyre outlet has suggested 235/45R19s as replacements. Would these work?
Tuesday, August 21, 2012 by Jessica:
I have a 2010 SXT with 22/55R19 with the stock Kuhmos. I am thinking of going to a 22" rim, any suggestions as there are not many options for a 19" tire.
Tuesday, August 21, 2012 by Hunter:
I am sorry but we do not have 22" recommended sizes for the Journey.
Sunday, September 23, 2012 by blaine:
looking to put winter tires on 2012 dodge journey r/t was told to buy 16" rims what size winter tire and brand would I need?
Saturday, September 29, 2012 by Tracy:
Can you put a 16 inch wheel on a Journey that originally has 19 inch wheels? Has anybody found a heavier-ply tire that will fit the wheel well space of a journey?
Friday, October 19, 2012 by minda:
I have 225/55R19 can I do 255/50R19 I dont no what to do or what size up or down would u reccomend please help me????
Friday, October 19, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi Minda,
A 255 is a bit wider than comfortable recommending. It could rub. The recommended alternate size is 235/55R19.

Sunday, October 21, 2012 by Ursula:
I see that a couple of postings are asking about a winter tire and you have not answered their question. Living in Alberta and driving the highway in winter, what does a person with a 2012 Journey (19" tires) do to switch to a winter tire-- as a winter tire does not ome in 19"??? Please respond. Thanks!
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 by Hunter:
Thanks for your question. There are multiple winter tire options in the alternate 19" size, 235/55/R19.
We also have wheel and tire packages available in wheels sizes down to 16"

Take good care,
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 by Whitney:
Had a blowout on front driver side tonight! Would we be ok to but the 235/55/R19 on front and leave the backs at the 255?
Thursday, October 25, 2012 by Stephen:
Own a 2012 journey crew (v6 model similar to r/t) 19 inch rims. found a great deal on used winter tires and rims from a guy who had a 2010 journey r/t. They are 16 inch rims. Just tried to install it and it won't clear the caliper on the front. Tire rack andvertises that you can fit 16 inch on 2012 journey r/t and crew. I think this is in error and i hope no one buys any 16's for that application. I wanted to purchase 17 inch wheels and tires but you have no steel rims! What gives? Ps i have till end of november to find a solution as its law to have winter tires in quebec
Friday, October 26, 2012 by Hunter:
I wouldn't recommend mixing the sizes. They are different diameters, which could possibly lead to some issues with abs and traction control when mixed. If you have an all wheel drive it could damage the drive train as well. Again this is only in the case of mixing the sizes
Friday, October 26, 2012 by Hunter:
It is possible that one 16" hits and another fits perfectly due to variations in design and specifications other than just diameter. The 16 inch wheels we sell are guaranteed to fit on an unmodified vehicle
Friday, October 26, 2012 by Marilyn:
Will a 225/45R19 work for my 2009 dodge Journey? or a 225/75R19. My original size is 225/55R19
Saturday, October 27, 2012 by Hunter:
235/55R19 is the only alternate size we recommend.
Monday, November 5, 2012 by Wil:
Winters Fast approaching and I'm looking for winter tires. I currently have the AWD R/T with 19" rims. My question is I have a set of 15" in my shed that I'm thinking of putting winters on to try and save money on the rims. They are the right bolt pattern but am unsure of tire size i would need, or if the rims will even work.
Thanks, Wil
Monday, November 5, 2012 by Hunter:
We do not show that 15" wheels will fit on the Journey.
Monday, November 12, 2012 by Claire:
Just traded in my 2011 Journey R/T for a 2012, everything the same. But my brand new winter tires from the 2011 will not fit on the 2012. The dealership had no idea the 2011 winter tires(size P225/70R16) were not going to fit, and have said there "looking for a compatible size" for the 2012. Right now they don't know what size to use. What are you recommending for the 2012 Journey R/T winter tire size?
Friday, November 23, 2012 by Alejandro Garcia:
I need to change a couple tires in my Journey'09; I would like to know, if I can to place two tires 225/55/r19 and two tires 235/55/19. Thanks
Saturday, November 24, 2012 by Alisha:
I currently have 17" tires on my 2011 dodge journey. Looking to put 19" tires on. Will this work?
Wednesday, November 28, 2012 by Hunter:
I would not recommend mixing tire sizes.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 by Hunter:
Sure you can put 19" on the Journey. Just go to Tirerack.com and enter your vehicle then click on wheels. There will be 19" options shown that are guaranteed to fit.

Sunday, December 2, 2012 by Doug:
My wife's 2012 Journey has 225/55/r19, what size tires and rims could I go to in 18" or 17".
Monday, December 3, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi Doug,
At this time we are not recommending down sizing on the 2012. The brake caliper and rotor is larger than previous years.
Wednesday, December 5, 2012 by jim:
can i use a 245 55 19 on my journey
Wednesday, December 5, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi Jim,
Sorry but 245/55R19 looks to be too tall to fit.
Thursday, December 6, 2012 by candy:
I have 225/55 19s. If I wanted to buy new rims for my 2009.dodge journey what other rim sizes could I use and what would be the bolt pattern for the sizes
Saturday, December 8, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi Candy,
The easiest wayto go about this is shopping by vehicle at tirerack.com. After you enter the vehicle info click on winter. This will walk you through the various options in smaller diameter wheel sizes
Tuesday, December 11, 2012 by Carolyn:
for a 2010 Dodge Journey SXT, can I use 235/55r/17 tires instead of original size?
Wednesday, December 12, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi, Carolyn,
Sorry that isgoing to be about an inch too short. I would not recommend that.
Wednesday, December 26, 2012 by Rommel:
Hi! i have 2010 model dodge journey sxt with 225/65 r17 tyres on it. what are the possible sizes of tyres can i possibly replace to this original size? using my original 17" tyres. how about 235/60 r17?
Thursday, December 27, 2012 by Hunter:
Hi Rommel,
You can use a 235/65R17 or 245/60R17 on that.
Wednesday, January 2, 2013 by Sherry:
I have a 2010 Dodge Journey sxt with 225/55/R19 on it now. Can I switch to 17" rims and tires?
Wednesday, January 2, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Sherry,
The 2010 Journey can run 17: wheels and tires. You can view these on the website by entering your vehicle then clicking on Winter. This is the only way to see minus sized wheels at the current time.
Friday, January 25, 2013 by GeoS:
2009 Dodge Journey RT AWD Tires 225/55 R19 or upgrade
What is the best deal?
The last set I bought from your company have aproximately 35,000 highway miles and are in need of replacement.
Thank you for your help.
Friday, January 25, 2013 by Hunter:
The best thing to do for pricing is check our website as pricing does change. Be sure to check the original size as well as the alternate size in the blog post.
Monday, January 28, 2013 by Tyler:
Can you fit 22" wheels on a 09 dodge journey SE? If so what is the best tire option? I've seen pictures off people with 22s and a 265/35/22 tire but when I try to do wheel/tire packages from various places they recommend 255/30/22. Which is better? Would like to have the thickist possible with no rubbing if 22s are an option. Thanks
Tuesday, January 29, 2013 by Hunter:
Our fitment guide stops at 20: on that vehicle.
Thursday, January 31, 2013 by Kevin :
I have been told by a garage that if I change the tire size from 225/55/19 to 235/55/19 the vehicle may not read the correct mph? Is this in fact true? Thanks Kevin
Friday, February 1, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Kevin,
Witht he alternate being .4" taller it will introduce an error. In this case it will be about 1.4%. So when travelling 100 miles an hour your speedometer will read 101.4. The industry views errors under 3% as accepteable
Saturday, February 9, 2013 by LAKESHA:

I bought a used Dodge Journey that has 245/55/19 tires. The vehicle needed an alignment which caused some wear on the inside of my tires. The vehicle seems to ride pretty good with this size and they are cheaper than the original sizes. What do you recommend? What is the difference between the 235/55/19 and a 245/55/19?
Monday, February 11, 2013 by Hunter:
The 245 will be 1/2" wider and taller than the 235 we recommend. While it is larger than we are comfortable with, if it fits, you should be OK.
Wednesday, February 20, 2013 by Ms Smith:
I have a 2009 Journey SXT AWD, wanted to get a chrome rim/tire package, size they stated was 265/35/22, will this cause rubbing? Is this a good fit for an alternative in size? Don't wont to purchase if it won't fit.
Friday, February 22, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Ms. Smith,
When you shop by vehicle, for the most part we will show you items that will fit without rubbing. If there is a fitment issue, it will be shown int he important notes section of each wheel and tire.
Thursday, February 28, 2013 by brenda:
Can i put 24 inc wheels with p225zeronero perreli tires on my 09 journey?
Thursday, February 28, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Brenda,
24" wheels are larger than we are comfortable recommending for your vehicle.
Wednesday, April 3, 2013 by Brian:
I need two tires, however can only afford one at a time, ist that ok for a short period of time?
Wednesday, April 3, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Brian,
We do not recommend replacing tires in less than sets of 4. it can cause handling imbalances in some situations
Saturday, April 6, 2013 by Natasha:
I need tires bad & was looking 2 get rims 4 a better price. I have a '11 Dodge Journey Crew AWD, will a 265 35Z R22 102W fit without rubbing? It's a universal 6 lug but my 5 lug can be converted 2 the 6 with an adapter that's included.
Monday, April 8, 2013 by Donna:
We have had 2 flats in the past month in our 2010 Journey, we live in a rural area and hate to drive with the donut, will a standard tire fit under the journey?
Tuesday, April 9, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Natasha,
I am sorry but we do not offer 22" options for the Journey. as such I will notbe able to confirm fitment in that size.
Tuesday, April 9, 2013 by Hunter:
I am sorry but we do nmonitor space under vehicles for mounting spares. I would try the Dodge dealer for guidance on that.
Thursday, April 18, 2013 by Roger:
I have a 2012 Dodge Journey with 17 inch tires, I want to buy new wheels 18" to spruce it up a bit, what's the biggest 18" tire in height and width I can install with worrying about rubbing? Any help would be great thanks
Thursday, April 18, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Roger,
Looks like we recommend 245/55R18.
Monday, May 20, 2013 by Ryan :
The 19" 225 Kumho tire are the worst I've ever owned. My 3 other vehicles combined have less tire trouble than the Journey, which is used the least. Good van/car with terrible and expensive tires
Friday, June 14, 2013 by Karen:
Will 225/55/19 tires work on the 2010 Journey? (current tires are the 225/55R/19)
Monday, June 17, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Karen,
The two sizes in your question are the same.
Tuesday, July 2, 2013 by kim:
Hi, my right front tire blew out and am using the spare until I get a new one. However, they told me I need 4 new ones. They said I hv 235/50r-19. They also said the front right and back were worn on the inside. Can I replace the two, rotate the others and go with 225/55-19? Also, it seemed like there was a rubbing sound whenever I turned left or right. Maybe the current size was wrongand that's what caused the abnormal wear? Which is cheaper to buy for my 2009 journey? Thanks
Tuesday, July 2, 2013 by Hunter:
I would not recommend mixing sizes on your vehicle. I doubt that size would result in uneven wear. That is almost always an alignment issue.
Friday, July 12, 2013 by kyrstal:
2010 Dodge Journey have tires 225/65r17, can they be replaced by 235/55r17.
Monday, July 15, 2013 by Carmen:
I have a 2009 Dodge Journey with 225/65R17 tires. Is there a less expensive alternative I could purchase?
Monday, July 22, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Krystal,
I am sorry but that size would be too short.
Monday, July 22, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Carmen,
You can look at 235/65R17 as an alternate size.
Friday, August 9, 2013 by Katie:
just purchased a 2010 Journey RT - dealer will be replacing 19" tires for us. Seems that these KUMHO tires wear quickly - is there an upgrade that you'd suggest with good tread? Also, with the AWD, do you suggest we use winter tires given we get our share of snow and ice?
Tuesday, September 3, 2013 by Mina:
purchased a 2009 Journey SXT FWD looking to purchase winter tires. There's not many options for a 225/55R19 size. Will 235/50R19 or 235/55R19 fit?
Friday, September 6, 2013 by tatum:
im trying to find another rim size for my dodge journey would r15 fit and if so what size tire could I use please please answer me I cant afford to pay $1600 a year on new tires cause they are so hard to find.
Monday, September 9, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Tatum,
You can go to tirerack.com, enter your vehicle and click on wheels. That will show you what will fit and walk youthruogh tire sizes as well.
Monday, September 9, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Mina,
We have witner sizes ranging down to 16" wheels. You can view these at tirerack.com and shop by vehicle for winter product.
Tuesday, September 10, 2013 by Charlene Beitz:
Is it necessary to change all four tires if only one is bad?
Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by Hunter:
If minimal wear then might be able to get away with one. If AWD can become much more restrictive.
Wednesday, September 18, 2013 by Richard:
A few months ago I purchased a 2013 Journey Crew, which comes with 225/55R19 rims and tires. Given 19 steel rims are not available, Cdn Tire suggested putting 17 inch rims on my Journey as an option. Your thoughts
Wednesday, September 18, 2013 by Hunter:
We do list 17" options that will fit your vehicle on our website.
Thursday, September 19, 2013 by Richard:
Hunter: thanks for the quick response. Further to my last, will 225/65R17 tires with the 17 inch rims work on my 2013 Journey Crew - A few months ago I purchased a 2013 Journey Crew, which comes with 225/55R19 rims and tires. Given 19 steel rims are not available, Cdn
Thursday, September 19, 2013 by Hunter:

Can I put P225/60R18 winter tires on my 2010 Journey?

Hi Jason,
Yes you can.
Thursday, October 17, 2013 by DAN:
I have a 2010 dodge journey r/t. I am looking for a cheaper alternative for winter tires. I currently have 19" factory rims/tires. Is it possible to change to 17" rims and tires? if so what sizes are needed.
Saturday, October 19, 2013 by jacob:
I'm looking to replace my 2010 journey ties. Would the hankook 426 tires be any good? I found a pair that come in the regular size of 225/55/19. But I am unfamiliar with the brand.
Monday, October 21, 2013 by Mauricio Barros :
What do you think about a 245/50 R19 to replace de 225/55 R19 of my 2012 dodge Journey RT? It's only 0,3% size different or 2,5mm ? By the way the 235/55 R19 have an 1,5% difference or 2,5% difference
Monday, October 21, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Maurico,
245/50R19 will also work
Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by Jeff:
I have a 2013 Dodge Journey CVP with 225 65R17 tires. I am looking for snow tires, and have an opportunity to purchase a used set of this size tire and rims that were used on a 2009 Dodge Journey. Will these rims work for me?
Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by Misty:
I have a 2013 RT I have the option to purchased lightly used winter tires that were on a 2009 Journey. They are 225/70/R16. Will they fit properly?
Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by Misty:
I forgot to mention the 225/70/R16 tires I would like to put on my 2013 RT are on winter rims already.
Thursday, October 31, 2013 by ernie :
The tire size on my 2010 Dodge Journey now is 225/70/16, I can get a great deal on winter tires but the size is 225/60/16. Will they fit and will they be safe? thank you.
Thursday, October 31, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Ernie,
That size will not work on your vehicle. It is too short.
Tuesday, November 5, 2013 by Jim:
I'm looking for a suggestion for the best all-season run flat tires for my original 2010 Journey 19 inch rims. None come in the standard sizes.
Wednesday, November 6, 2013 by hunter:
Hi Jim,
i am sorry but I do not have a size recommendation to get you into a run flat.
Thursday, November 7, 2013 by Jim:
Hunter, thanks for the response, I did see a few run flats in 245/45R19, would that work for my vehicle or is the tire too low profile?
Saturday, November 9, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Jim,
Correct those are too short.
Saturday, November 9, 2013 by Lori:
I have a 2012 Journey RT with 225/55 R19 oem tires. Will 225/65 R17 winter tires work on my Journey ?
Monday, November 11, 2013 by Martin:

Can I put 215/65 R16 winter tires on my Journey? Now I have 225/55 R19.
Wednesday, November 13, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Lori,
Yes those will work assuming you buy 17" wheels
Wednesday, November 13, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Martin,
That 16" size is too short. Shop by vehicle for winter on at tirerack.com for correct fitments
Thursday, November 14, 2013 by Lynette:
I have a 2013 Dodge Journey (CVP)...will225/70R/16 winter tires fit my vehicle? The all seasons on the vehicle now are 225/65R/17
Friday, November 15, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Lynette,
We do not show 16" options for that vehicle.
Tuesday, November 26, 2013 by Anthony:
I have a 2010 Journey Crew with 225/55R19. I would like to switch to a 20" rim. Would a 245/45R20 tire work for my vehicle? If not, what size do you recommend?
Saturday, November 30, 2013 by Erfie:
Hi..I have a 2011 journey crew with the original 225/55R19 on it.I found a cheaper winter tires that is 245/55R19

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Erfie,

Sorry, but we feel that will be too large.
Thursday, December 19, 2013 by Melissa:
I have a 2012 Dodge Journey that came with 225/55R19 tires on it. Can I change to Winter Tires that are 225/60R17?
Monday, December 23, 2013 by Hunter:
Hi Melissa,
We would recommend 225/65R17 for a winter downsize.
Tuesday, February 11, 2014 by Kenneth:
I have an 09 Journey and this is a crazy question, but I am trying to find some good off road tires in the 19" wheel size or will I have to drop to a 17" wheel? *NOTE* nothing too extreme like mud swampers
Monday, February 17, 2014 by Hunter:
Hi Kenneth,
Looks like a 17" will be required. 225/65R17 offers some all terrain options that will work.
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 by Eddie:
Bought a 2013 dodge journey in november ,insalled snowtires a couple wks later.snowtires size is 235/65r17.Since havin the snowtires insalled my vehicle pulls to the right,this did not happen with the all season tires.thx
Tuesday, March 18, 2014 by Mike:
One question about going to the 235 55 19 tire size on a journey rt awd: If I have a flat and must use the factory spare is it going to cause problems due to the difference in diameter?
Wednesday, March 19, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Mike,
Short term it should be OK. If your vehicle has a temporary spare it would be a different diameter than the OE tire size anyway, in most cases. Very Temporary Solution
Wednesday, May 7, 2014 by Josh:
I am looking to replace the stock 16" wheels on my Journey SE with something larger and found some 2011 Jeep Wrangler wheels that are 18". The tire size I found to be stock on that wheel is 255/70 18. I realize that is much bigger than the Journey's tire so I would be looking for something with a smaller sidewall aspect ratio but would 255 be too wide? Could I put a 245 or 235 width tire on that wheel or would that be too narrow?
Thursday, May 8, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Josh,
09 Journey canuse a 245/55R18. That is the widest Tire Rack is comfortable recommending.
Wednesday, May 21, 2014 by Dave:
I was given a set of rims ( no rubber) from a 2010 dodge journey 17 inch will they fit a 2013 dodge journey 17" ?
Sunday, August 3, 2014 by justin:
I have a 2013 journey sxt. I want to put 265 65 17 off road/ mudding all terrain tires on... will they fit? I have a inch adapter on them to push stick rim out a little further
Monday, August 4, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Justin,
Those are quite a bt larger than stock. I am not able to confirm those will fit.
Friday, August 8, 2014 by Dave:
I have 2009 Journey SXT AWD with 225/55/19 on them. Will 245/55/19 be a suitable replacement?
Sunday, August 10, 2014 by jamie:
Would 245/35zr20 fit on my 2010 journey?
Monday, August 11, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Jamie,
That would be too short. We would recommend 24/45R20
Tuesday, August 12, 2014 by Erik:
225/55-19. Cannot find tire chains anywhere. Can you recommend a tire size that I could search for tire chains for that will also fit my 225/55-19's? It is required by law in some aces in Europe
Thursday, August 14, 2014 by Ed:
Hi Hunter. It seems that you're pretty knowledgeable of Dodge Journey tires. I would like to know what's the wider and taller size that can fit on my 2010 Journey SXT. Also I would like to know the average price on that specific tire. Thanks.
Friday, August 15, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Ed,
245/55R18 would be the widest and 235/65R17 is the tallest. Current pricing can be viewed on the website

Will Avalanche 225/75R16 fit my 2009 Dodge Journey SXT?

No those are too tall
Friday, August 22, 2014 by Richard:
I have a 2013 Journey SE Plus with P225/65R17 tires. Will P225/55R17 winter tires work on this car? Will the speedometer be out?
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Richard,
going to a 55 from a 65 will make the tire too short to work.
Friday, August 29, 2014 by Allen:
I have a 2014 Dodge Journey Limited and want to purchase new winter tires and rims - what is the most cost effective and efficient rims size to purchase.
Tuesday, September 2, 2014 by hunter:

Monday, September 8, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Aaron,
Those would be too short
Friday, September 12, 2014 by Mache:
I would like to know if 235/50R18 will work on my 2012 Journey SXT or will that be too low? I have an opportunity to get some fairly new tires and rims for $0 and am hoping they will work.
Wednesday, September 17, 2014 by Greg:
Have a 2012 dodge journey,it came with 19 inch wheels and tires and is an AWD,I want to buy 17 inch rim's and put a taller tire on it.Found 17 inch rims off a 2010 Journey and was wondering is hub the same size for these wheels to fit the hub on the 2012?
Thursday, September 18, 2014 by Kim:
Looking at replacing the 225/55/19 on the Journey Crew, the 245/50/19 seems to be close (-0.34 rotation variance), If i crank the steering wheel and have enough clearance for the 10mm (20mm overall) width increase on inside & outside of the tire centreline , would these work in your opinion.....any potential other issues?
Thursday, September 18, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Kim,
We do list 245/50R19 as a good recommended size for the Journey.
Thursday, September 25, 2014 by ejaz:

Hi Mauricio,
In a 17" we recommend 245/60R17
Tuesday, October 21, 2014 by hunter:
Hi David,
225/65R17 is the suggested winter size.

Friday, October 24, 2014 by hunter:
Absolutely....Goto tirerack.com , enter your vehicle and click on winter. That will walk you through winter options. Bridgestone Blizzak is always a great choice
Sunday, October 26, 2014 by James Kendrick:
What is the biggest size of 18" tires that will fit the Journey? If you could please give me a full range of 18" tires.

Sunday, November 2, 2014 by Katarina:
I have winter tires and rims that I purchased from tire rack for a previous vehicle: 235/60R18. Could I put these on my Journey?
Monday, November 3, 2014 by hunter:
235/60R18 might be OK but you should test fit before driving to be sure. It is about as tall as we are comfortable with.
Friday, November 14, 2014 by How:

Hey Hunter. I have a 2011 Journey RT AWD. 2 questions; will 225 65 r17 fit for winter tires? Also.. can any specific rims I should get? Or will a basic steel 17 inch rim work fine? I was looking for something not so dull? Thanks.

Will a 17"x7" wheel from a 2010 Rav4 fit on my 2011 Dodge Journey? Concerned about the center Bore and the bolt radius!
Monday, November 24, 2014 by hunter:
225/55R18 is shorter than we recommend
Monday, November 24, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Rick,
Sorry I do not think that swap is going to work.

Tuesday, December 9, 2014 by chris:
I need to replace the stock Kumho Solus 225 55 19 tires on my 2009 Journey and all I have access to without expensive special order are 245/45/19. I know that 235s are the recommended alternative, are 245s too wide?
Tuesday, December 9, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Dwight,
Those two sizes are not interchangeable
Tuesday, December 9, 2014 by hunter:
Hi Chris,
That is not a size we can recommend.
Saturday, December 27, 2014 by kenneth:

Monday, January 19, 2015 by hunter:
Hi Carlos,
Sorry but I think 245/65 is going to be too large to fit. 235/45R17 fits though
Monday, February 2, 2015 by Tara Bryan:
Hello, I see you seem to be very helpful in this forum. I have a 2012 Dodge Journey SXT. My Factory tires are 225/55/19 5 lug AWD... 45k miles and have medal tread showing. also found out i have a bent rim. Trying to find the thickest widest size tires and rim to fit it that i can convert to. If i have to buy one new rim i might as well buy 4. I feel these factory tires were to thin and im interested in thicker tires. Any feedback is much appreciated.
Wednesday, February 4, 2015 by hunter:
Hi Tara, The best way to get protection from bending rims, is to use a 17" rim and tire. Our website will show the options when you use the shop by vehicle tool for wheels
Wednesday, February 11, 2015 by Angelica Wood:
Hello, I have a 2009 Dodge Journey with 235 55 19 currently on it. Can I put 255 55 19 on the car?

Monday, March 9, 2015 by hunter:
Hi Ted,
16" tire size is 225/70R16. The vehicle will be less responsive the smaller the wheel diameter. We do have steel wheels that fit it for $60 each. You can view our offerings using the shop by vehicle tool on our website.
