Dodge Journey Tire Options for 19" Wheels

First offered in 2008, the Journey comes in multiple trim levels, each with optional wheel and tire sizes. Owners of some SXT and RT models came equipped with 19" wheels shod in 225/55R19 Kumho Solus KH16. Every owner who has had to replace their Original Equipment tires has quickly found that they do not have many options. This is unfortunate as the O.E. tires leave room for improvement, especially in longevity and wet traction.

For those wanting to maintain the original tire size, Bridgestone, Continental and Pirelli have models that will provide a marked improvement across the board over the stock tires.

The Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia is a part of the manufacturer's low rolling resistance line of Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tires. In addition to increased fuel economy, the Bridgestone provides sharper steering response, as well as improved longevity.   

Continental's offering in 225/55R19 is the TrueContact. The TrueContact provides similar handling to the original Kumho, but has the best winter traction of the bunch and also contains low rolling resistance technology for better fuel economy.

The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus offers the smoothest and quietest ride of the group. It also improves wet and winter traction and is easily the best bang-for-your-buck option.

If none of the above options are quite what you are looking for, there is an alternate size that will work with the Journey. Though a slightly larger tire in both width and diameter, using a 235/55R19 tire will provide a broader variety of brand and model choices. View options in 235/55R19 here.

My front OE tires on my 2015 Journey have worn and need to be replaced. Would there be any issues if i replaces them with the Perilli P7s and keep the other OE. I bought the car used and the rear tire look new.

The most predictable and safest handling will come from all four tires being the exact same model. Though not recommended, if you were to mix, the new or better traction tires would go the back to keep it stable in slippery conditions but this could still cause issues.
