Best Tires for 2012 Toyota Sienna XLE

The 2012 Toyota Sienna XLE is a perfect vehicle for a larger family. Well built to provide a comfortable ride with a smooth and powerful engine, the Sienna XLE AWD version comes with second-row lounge seats that feature pop-up footrests. With such a comfortable interior, you don’t want to ruin it by riding on the wrong tires.

Equipped with 235/55R18 Bridgestone Turanza EL 400-02 RFT tires as Original Equipment, the tire was Bridgestone’s first run-flat tire to arrive in the United States that featured their third-generation run-flat technology. It’s designed to offer almost the same riding comfort as conventional tires while continuing to provide temporary mobility in the event a puncture allows complete air loss.

When the time comes to replace your vehicle’s Original Equipment tires, take a look at our best sellers for the Sienna:

If you enjoy the convenience of a run-flat tire, and prefer to keep them installed on your minivan, consider the Bridgestone DriveGuard. The tire is developed for safety-minded drivers who are looking for a better riding option than their vehicle’s Original Equipment run-flat tires. Featuring Bridgestone’s latest run-flat technology, the DriveGuard offers almost the same riding comfort as conventional tires, while offering year-round driving flexibility with predictable handling, traction and control on dry and wet roads, as well as in light snow.

The idea of moving to a conventional tire appeals to many customers, and if you fall under this category, we recommend the Michelin Defender LTX M/S. As an owner of a Sienna minivan, you know this vehicle is very hard on tires. So to get long tread life out of your next set of tires, the Michelin Defender LTX M/S will not only accomplish this, but also provide a smooth and quiet ride thanks to Michelin’s MaxTouch Construction. It produces a contact patch that promotes reliable traction and long wear by evenly distributing acceleration, braking and cornering forces.
