Best Tires for a Toyota Sienna

For over a decade, the Toyota Sienna has been a very popular minivan for American families. Toyota's dependability, comfortable ride and ample room has kept these vans on the road for years. Many owners have logged well over 100,000 miles on them and have purchased multiple sets of tires for their vehicle. Like most vans, these vehicles are charged with hauling families, groceries and sports equipment all over town. Families will also use the minivan to travel long distances while going on vacation. The drivers of these vans are typically looking for great all-season traction, long lasting treadlife and a comfortable ride.

One of my favorite tires for this vehicle is the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring. First of all, this tire has fantastic all-season traction. Also, as the name suggests, it offers exceptionally good ride qualities, including a very smooth, quiet and comfortable ride. They are long lasting with an 80,000-mile treadlife warranty in the T- and H-speed rated versions, and a 70,000-mile treadlife warranty for the V-speed rated model. If this sounds like the tire for you, take advantage of our special offer.

Another great option for the Sienna is the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia. Although this tire is marketed as a Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire, Toyoto uses popular SUV sizes on their newer Siennas and this is definitely one of the best tires in the size. Like the Goodyear mentioned above, this tire also offers great all-season traction and comes with a 65,000-mile treadlife warranty. The advantage with this tire is that it is Bridgestone's low rolling resistance tire, which means it will provide you with optimum fuel economy.

If you're looking for a good value option, consider the Yokohama AVID Ascend. This Grand Touring All-Season tire features Yokohama's Orange Oil technology and is branded with their BluEarth eco-friendly identification. It's designed to blend long treadwear, low rolling resistance and all-season traction, even in light snow.

I'm looking for the best traction tire for Spokane, Wa winter driving conditions for my 2006 Toyota 5 door minivan. I need good stopping and grip features. I used sipe tires last year but still slid going 25 mph on ice.
Friday, November 8, 2013 by Steve

Hi Anna,
For the best tire in the worst winter conditions, I always suggest the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70. Hope this helps.

Thursday, October 16, 2014 by Jessie

Hi, I'm wondering what you think about the oem tire that comes on the 2013 Sienna - Michelin Primacy MXV4. Need new tires and can't decide.

Live in South-Cal, no snow, little rain, probably need summer tires? also looking for low noise tires. Mostly family commute and long drive travels. Can you recommend a few optins to select from? thanks for your help!!

Carrie, What size wheels and tires do you have on the Sienna for your summer set? Are they 17" or 18"? --
Wednesday, April 29, 2015 by Jim D

Looking for tires for an '06 Sienna LE FWD. Went cheap last time, a Michelin, an they didn't even last 18 months. Wouldn't mind spending a little more this time (up to $600 installed). Looking at your recommendations, do you still suggest the Goodyear Assurance Comfortred? I seem to slide a lot in the rain around here, so looking for good traction.
Tuesday, May 5, 2015 by Tire Rack Team

Jim, The Goodyear Assurance Comfort Tread is still a very good choice. As an alternative, you should also look at the Continental True Contact. --

I need new tires for my 2000 Toyota Sienna LE van. I will be driving lots of highway miles this summer, but generally I drive locally and on gravel roads as we live in rural Missouri. Summers are very hot and humid. Winters highly variable with snow and ice. I have three children and need a very safe tire. Tire size is 215/65/15 Any suggestions? Thank you!

I have a 2013 Toyota Sienna XLE AWD... It seems there are only two types of Run Flat Tires for the minivan. Do you have any recommendations? Much appreciated!!!
Monday, May 18, 2015 by Tire Rack Team

Kenji, Unfortately there are the only two run-flat tires that we offer in this size. Please give us a call if you are willing to discuss using a non-runflat tire on your van and what benefits and risks this presents. --
Tuesday, July 14, 2015 by Terry

Hi I have a 2011 Toyota Sienna SE with 19 inch wheels. As the recommended size is 235/50/R19 what other sizes can I use? as there aren't much options with the 235/50/R19. Will a 245/55 R19 tire mess the speedometer?
Wednesday, July 15, 2015 by Jayme

I am looking for non-run flat tires for my 2013 Toyota Sienna XLE AWD. I was looking at the Continental PureContact tires on your site but the Continental website says that these tires don't fit the Sienna. I live in the Northeast, so I need tires that are good in extreme winter conditions. My tire size is P235/55/R18. What would you recommend?
Wednesday, July 15, 2015 by Tire Rack Team

Terry, We cannot gaurantee the successful use of a 245/55/19. Not only will this size throw off the speedometer and odometer, it may also cause potential rubbing issues. --
Wednesday, July 22, 2015 by Tire Rack Team

Jayme, Continental does make the Pure Contact in your size and it would be a very appropriate choice. Another good option would be a General Altimax RT43. --
Saturday, August 1, 2015 by Pete

Do you recommend Firestone Destination LE 2 on my '13 Sienna SE? If not, what tire do you recommend that will give me the best value and performance? OE Dunlaps are running low at 30k miles. I live in So Cal.
Tuesday, August 4, 2015 by Tire Rack Team

Pete, The Firestone Destination is a good choice and is well priced. Two others to look at are the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus and the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus:
Monday, August 17, 2015 by Tina

What tires do you recommend for a 2010 Toyota Sienna LE FWD? I live in PA so all weather with good traction in winter is important.
What is your opinion of the Firestone Affinity Touring BL?
Thank you!
Monday, August 17, 2015 by Joy

Hi there! I need to buy new tires for my 2004 Toyota Sienna. Are the tires you recommended above good for older models such as mine? I have only had to replace the front two tires once. My van has almost 70,000 miles on it. I hope you can respond soon because one of my tires is not replaceable so I am thinking about getting all of them replaced tomorrow. I drive under 20 miles a day and an approximate 1,000 miles round trip- road trip once or twice a year. Thanks in advance for any helpful tips!
Wednesday, August 19, 2015 by Tire Rack Team

Joy, The tire recommendations featured in this blog post are good choices for a Sienna. Since this article has been published, however, a few new players have entered the category that may be worth a look. Take a glance at the Continental True Contact and General Altimax RT43:

Bobby, What size are you using on the Sienna? --
Monday, October 19, 2015 by Gordon Bulger

I have a 2012 Toyota Sienna LE V6 with 235/60R17 tires. I want the Continental TrueContact tires but 2 dealers have told me they are not recommended / won't fit. Continental Canada's website does not list them as compatible with my car. What is the true situation? My main concern is long tread life.
Wednesday, October 21, 2015 by Tire Rack Team

Gordon, The TrueContact was originally designed as a passenger car tire but is now being offered in larger sizes. It works well as an all-season, wears well, and would be a good choice for vans and crossovers. --
Friday, October 23, 2015 by Steve

Hello. What run flat tires do you recommend for a 2008 Toyota Sienna Limited FWD?
Tuesday, October 27, 2015 by Tire Rack Team

Steve, Take a look at the Pirelli Cinturato P7 A/S RFT. It has received more favorable reviews than the O.E. tires:
Thursday, October 29, 2015 by Ar Be

I have a 2005 Toyota Sienna LE (215/65-16).
I have tried both the Goodyear Assurance ComfortTred and the Yokohama AVID tires.

None of the tires made it past 28k miles, despite having the tires rotated every 5,000 miles and having my alignment checked annually. Very disappointed in Goodyear and Yokohama tires.

I have had the Bridgestone Duelers on another vehicle, and it lasted 30,000 miles before being bald.
Tuesday, November 3, 2015 by Tire Rack Team

Ar Be, All of these tires represent good options. If however, you are looking for an alternate, look at the General AltiMAX RT43. --
Wednesday, November 4, 2015 by Marco

Looking for tire for my 2015 Sienna Limited AWD. We like in the San Francisco Bay Area, but go up to the Sierra (snow) several times in the winter (we have a cabin with a step driveway). I'm not looking for a dedicated winter tire per se, but a very good all season that will do well in the snow. I'd trade winter performance, over thread life. I was leaning on the Pirelli Scorpion Verde all season or the Nokian Wrg3 Suv (which you don't carry)
Friday, November 6, 2015 by Tire Rack Team

Marco, The Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S Plus would be a good choice. Another alternative that I would suggest is the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus. --
Wednesday, November 11, 2015 by Doug

Doug, What size are you currently using on the Sienna? Also, is yours equipped with run-flat tires? --
Monday, December 28, 2015 by Pam

I have a 2007 FWD Sienna that uses 215/65R16 tires. I am not happy with the tire mileage I've had with Michelins. Would like an all-around tire including a minimal amount of snow driving. Would like a tire that also gives a good ride and not too much noise.
What tire(s) would you suggest?
Friday, January 1, 2016 by Andy

I drive an '04 Sienna and live on the Gulf Coast and never drive in snow. HOT summers with lots of rain. Mostly hwy driving. Want a good summer touring or performance tire, decent ride/noise but long life is primary concern. Size is 215/65-16. Please advise.
Monday, January 4, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Andy, If decent ride/noise quality and longevity are your primary concerns, you would be better suited using an all-season tire. Summer tires will handle well, but you will sacrifice the qualities you are really looking for. For something that addresses all of your needs, take a look at the Michelin Premier LTX:

Or the Continental True Contact:
Monday, February 1, 2016 by Jennifer

I am on my 2nd Toyota Sienna (a 2007 Limited FWD). On my first (a 2005 XLE Limited FWD), I replaced the factory tires with a set of Yokohama AVID TRZ. I liked them enough (great traction and control in bad weather!) that I replaced that set - when it wore out - with the same kind.
We got our current Sienna used, and the current tires (Firestone Destination LE2) aren't anything great and are on the verge of needing to be replaced. I'm not happy with their traction in snowy conditions vs. the Yokohama tires, but I have noticed considerably less road noise with these, which has been nice.
What would you recommend to replace these? We live in the upper Midwest, and get a considerable amount of ice and snow, so the tires need to be able to handle it. We also travel very frequently (600-100 miles in travel/month on top of regular local driving) and reduced road noise is definitely near the top of the "want" list.

Could you also explain to me what exactly a "tread warranty" is? If my tires have an 80,000 mile tread warranty, should I expect they will - with proper maintenance and regular rotation - actually last that long?

Thank You!
Tuesday, February 2, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Jennifer, The best all-season tire for your van in the ice and snow is the Continental TrueContact. This tire has the best rated ice/snow traction for standard touring all-season tires in our internal testing and continues to rate well with our consumer's.

Jennifer, For a detailed explanation of treadlife warranty, view here:

Monday, March 21, 2016 by Alex

I have a 2013 FWD Sienna Ltd. equipped with 232/55R18 tires.
I'm looking for the new best possible tires on the market (summer+wet).
My preferences are: 1-ride quality, 2-conering stability,3-noise.
I've been looking at Michelin Premier A/S, but I'm afraid it could be to soft for me. What tire(s) would you suggest considering my preferences?
Thank you
Tuesday, March 22, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Alex, You are probably already barking up the right tree. There are other tires available in your size that can provide some of your desired characteristics, but the Premier A/S has the best combination of what you are looking for. If I were to make an alternate recommendation, I would check out the Continental True Contact. The Continental however will be a step down in steering response and have a bit less wet traction:
Thursday, April 7, 2016 by Lou

I own a 2012 Toyota sienna XLE FWD with standard tires which needs replacement tires. I am wondering about replacing with run flats. Is this possible? If so, are new wheels needed? What would you recommend if I insist on replacing with run flats? Thanks
Saturday, April 9, 2016 by Joe

Hello, We have a 2012 Toyota Sienna AWD and the best I have for tire wear is 18,000 miles. These are Yokohama Envigors. I do not use the run flats anymore. Is there a tire that will not wear out as fast? I am looking at crossover tires now such as Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred all season and Michelin Defender LXT M/S . Will these last longer or are there better tires? Thank you in advance, Joe Q
Wednesday, April 13, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Joe, Hi Joe, it looks like you are headed in the right direction. The Michelin Defender LTX is going to be your best bet for longevity. Opposed to the "performance" oriented Envigor, the Michelin was designed to provide a quieter and more comfortable ride opposed to performance. --
Friday, April 15, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Lou, You can replace your run-flat tires with a standard tire; new wheels would not be required. We are happy to make a tire recommendation. What characteristics would be most important to you?
Tuesday, April 26, 2016 by Melissa

I've been looking at the Dueller Ecopia for my 2011 Sienna. However the salesman that I spoke with today said he's seen a lot of trouble with those tires for the Sienna because the minivan is so low and wide and heavy that it wears the tires poorly. He suggested the Michellin Primacy, which are considerable more expensive. Is he just taking me for a ride, or could there be some validity to what he's saying? Thanks SO much!
Tuesday, April 26, 2016 by Shane

2005 Toyota Sienna FWD XLE. Upstate NY, looking for a set of 4 all season tires. Have 2 Mastercraft Glacial Grip II snow tires left over from the winter that i'll use again next winter.

Safety and longevity are main conerns, ride comfort and noise second. I realize Siennas eat tires and brakes so I know I wont be getting anything close to the milage ratings.

Willing to pay for quality!

Any recommendations?
Wednesday, April 27, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Shane, Assuming you are running 215/65R16, we would recommend taking a look at the Michelin Premier LTX:

Wednesday, May 18, 2016 by Jodi

I have a 2011 Toyota Sienna FWD. Live in OH so need all season tire. I really want excellent traction, smooth, and very can get really loud in back of this car and can have difficulty having conversation from front to back. Would I need to go to very expensive or could there be a mid-priced option. Current recommendations from dealers and AAA care centers are: Michelin Primacy, Goodyear Eagle, Bridgestone Jewel, Cooper Premier AS, Cooper Ultra Touring. What are your thoughts on these in order of preference with reason or maybe you have another option you would recommend? Thank you!
Friday, May 20, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Jodi, Which trim level of sienna do you have, or what size tire are you currently using?
Friday, June 10, 2016 by Paul

TireRack folks -- we own a 2014 AWD Sienna with the run-flats. I've found them loud, not the best ride and only worth 30k. Time for new shoes. While I see a wide variety of recommendations based on the year/model, I see the 235/55-18s are the recommended size. We live in Raleigh, NC. Long summers, occasional ice and snow every winter or two, occasional long drives to other locales (mtns of Virginia, metro NYC, NC beaches). Seeking longer tread life, quieter ride. We '4WD' only on rare occasions. Mostly paved highway or commuter driving.

Your article of 3 yrs ago mention the goodyear, the bridgestone, and yokohama. Do you still feel they are the best all-season for quiet and comfort? Thank you -- btw -- this will not be my first purchase from the tire rack, and there are many reasons I'm back.
Monday, June 13, 2016 by Suzanne

Hi, I am looking to replace the tires on my 2011 Sienna (P235/60R17).. I have always used a good all season tire but have just relocated to a place that will definitely require a quality set of winter tires.. Looking for recommendations on summer/all season tires that offer good handling and a quiet ride.. And also a winter tire once Fall rolls around.. Thanks!
Thursday, July 14, 2016 by Rachel Diamond

We are looking to replace the original run-flats on our 2014 Sienna LE AWD with non-run flats. We got 30,000 miles out of them driving backroads daily with a few longer distance road trips mixed in their. We must have something that can handle New England weather. Thanks!
Wednesday, July 20, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Rachel, The best tire for your vehicle will be the Continental True Contact. This tire has a 90,000 mile tread life warranty, will have a better ride than your run flats, and did the best of any all season tires that we tested in our snow test in Northern Sweden.
Wednesday, July 27, 2016 by Chuck

2012 Toyota Sienna SE. This van eats tires. What is my best shot at getting an all weather tire that will last??
Monday, August 1, 2016 by Chun

2006 Toyota sienna limited Awd . Just installed Michelin Defender XT 225/60R17 . But my tire pressure is on often especially on high speed. I have to air the tires often too. Is it the tire not fit my wheel or the quality is not good? what can I do ?
Wednesday, August 3, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Chun, The Defender in that size is just fine for the Sienna. You could have an issue with wheel corrosion, but it is more likely a leaking valve. We would recommend taking it to a local tire shop to inspect for leaks.

Which tires do you recommend for 2015 Toyota Sienna XLE FWD? The oem Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires need to be replaced soon after 20,000 miles of driving.
Thursday, September 8, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Oly, What characteristics are most important to you out of a new set of tires?
Thursday, September 29, 2016 by Albert Lee

Hi Tire Rack Team,

I have a 2013 Honda Odyssey and am choosing between the Continental TrueContact and Michelin Premier LTX. Will the LTX last longer due to it being made for Crossover/SUVs or is it basically a wash?

Thank you!
Friday, September 30, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Albert Lee, Generally the True Contact will be the longer lasting of the two tires. --
Thursday, October 13, 2016 by Brian

I have a 2014 Sienna XLE. I live in Cincinnati so winters can be harsh sometimes. I want something that will last yet be smooth to drive with good steering control. The original tires are Michelin Primacy MXV4 that have a little over 30K miles (even though they are supposed to be 60K tires) and are showing serious wear and squeal alot. What should I go with?
Monday, October 17, 2016 by Kevin E.

Greetings Tire Rack Team,

I live in upstate NY. I own a 2011 Toyota Sienna SES. I replaced the original tires after 33months and 37559miles with 235/50VR19 Yokohama Avid Ascend tires rated with a 80Kmiles tread warranty. The tires are now shot after 30months and 35,867miles. Does the 80Kmiles warranty mean much and which tire brand would you suggest I purchase now...the same or different? It's half local and half highway driving.
Tuesday, October 18, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Kevin, If your tires are worn out prematurely you may be eligible for some amount of credit. I would take a look at the Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S Plus. The A/S Plus is designed specifically for larger vehicles like your Sienna:

Sunday, November 20, 2016 by Jim

Thanks for the great site! I'm in the market for new tires also.
Great comments and a great resource for online questions with prompt answers!
Wednesday, November 23, 2016 by George


My 2007 Sienna AWD has the 17 inch Bridgestone EL400 Touring tire in 225 x 60 x 17 Runflat. Vehicle is new to me and I am accustomed to a different kind of tire/vehicle (2006 BMW 330xi with Micheline AS3 in 18").

I'd like to upgrade to a more sporting tire that handles well, turns in crisply and lets my van sorta begin to be 'sporty'. Yeah I know it's a minivan.... but still. An all season performance tire (non-runflat) is my choice for Seattle area. I will carry a spare in the rear well, having removed the third row seating.

Would a step up in tire rating alone (T to V or Z) on my 17 inch rims do the trick? Or should I move up to 18 or 19 inch rims? A 245x45x19 tire has the same diameter as my stock 17 inch tire. How would that fit in a 35ET offset?

I'm OK buying wheels plus tires if that is what will get me happy. I've already upgraded the brakes to the larger dual piston version and larger discs from the 2011 and up Sienna, just so you know what I'm trying to achieve here.

By the way, I love the Michelin AS 3 on my 2005 Boxster and former 330xi. They are a do everything tire that is sporty, quiet, decent riding and more. So those tires are my 'baseline'. TIA!
Friday, November 25, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

George, Unfortunately, the performance oriented options in your size are going to leave you a fair bit to be desired. To get what you are looking for, you would be better off with an 18" wheels and tire (235/50R18). This will give you the pick of the litter in performance all-season tires such as the AS3. Additionally, I would try to choose a lighter weight wheel if possible. Feel free to contact me (Sonny) direct at 888-428-8355 ext.# 4789.

Looking to replace tires on 2009 Sienna (P215/65 R16). Not happy with Hancook Optimo H727 for their poor rain performance. Need 3 season tires, w/ quiet ride, long wear & good in wet weather. Love my Blizzak WS80 winter tires.

Brian, I would go with the Continental True Contact. This tire has great wet traction, a 90,000-mile tread life warranty, smooth quiet ride and if you do see any snow it is excellent in the snow.

I recently purchased a 2017 sienna se. I am very unhappy with the ride. Would a different tire make a difference. I have 19" rims

Roy, A different tire might help with the ride quality, but it would be a small difference. If you are looking for a drastic change you will need to get a smaller wheel diameter to increase the sidewall height of the tire.

2013 Toyota Sienna LE FWD - P235/60R17.
Live in Minnesota, so we only have 2 seasons: winter and road construction.
Put on 15-20k annually. Good recommendation on an all season?

I would go with the Conti True Contact. This will give you a great ride quality along with excellent winter traction for an all-season tire:

I have a 2008 Toyota Sienna XLE Limited. My tires are 225/60/17, Michelin Defender Radial X 99T and they have been AWFUL. Despite a 90,000 mile warranty, these puppies were shot at around 25,000 to 30,000 miles. We rotated them religiously, but I will admit that we did not do yearly alignments, which probably would have helped.

What can you recommend (besides yearly alignments!!) for a new tire, as they replacement we got when they honored the warranty are now dying. I refuse to give another penny to this particularly worthless tire!

Thanks, Tire Rack Team!

Barbara, it sounds like you're going to go through tires faster no matter what tire you have unless you can get the alignment dialed in. Maybe try a different shop, etc. Minivans go through tires faster naturally but not that fast (usually). Once it is aligned properly and you want to try a different tire, I'd recommend the Continental True Contact. Click below for current pricing:

I have a 2006 Toyota Sienna Limited FWD. I need to replace my tires again. I got 30k out of Michelin Defenders. Then I put on Continental Control Contact which I only got 20k. What would you recommend for me? I drive mostly city driving with some highway. I live in MN, so I need a good tire that can handle the snow.

Amy, if you have the 265/65R17, the longest tread life warranty is on the Bridgestone Dueler HL Alenza Plus at 80k. Click below for current pricing.

It also does well in snow for an all-season tire. Vans do wear tires a bit faster than other vehicles but not that fast normally. I would suggest you have the alignment checked with the next set of tires.

I have 2014 sienna xle fwd. Looking for low noise, high miles, good gas mileage tires.
Wednesday, February 28, 2018 by Tire Rack Team

Stefanie, if you have size 235/60R17 we recommend the Continental True Contact, quiet, 90K treadlife and low rolling resistance. Follow the link for current pricing:

2013 Sienna XLE FWD. Looking for all season tires with great thread life. Considering Continental True Contact, Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus or Michelin Defender LTX M/S. Any recommendation? These tires will not be used during winter season. Thank you.

James, crossover/SUV tires have a tendency to last better on a van. The Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus has the longest tread wear in that category.

We have 2013 Toyota Sienna XLE FWD with 17 inch standard tires. We would like a recommendation for the quietest, smoothest tires available.
Monday, May 14, 2018 by Tire Rack Team

Nancy, the Continental TrueContact is currently the highest rated tire for ride comfort and quietness when you combine our test results with customer reviews, and it has very good traction in all conditions. Follow the link for current pricing:

I have a 2017 AWD XLE Sienna with 22,000 miles. I just had the van serviced and they said the wheels were 'cupping" and no tread left. Do I need to get run flats again? I live in Wisconsin with variable weather. What tires should I get?
Tuesday, May 29, 2018 by Tire Rack Team

Dawn, the AWD Sienna has run flats on it because there was no room for a spare tire. You could go away from run flat tires but you would need a backup plan in case you had a tire issue. If you want to stay with run flats but get a longer lasting, better traction and riding tire, look at the Bridgestone Driveguard. Follow the link for current pricing:
