If you drive a late model Toyota Highlander with 19" wheels, you have likely noticed that there are very few choices in the O.E. 245/55R19 size. In addition, the few tire options available in this size are not necessarily a great selection for most drivers based on their performance and price.
An option most people are not aware of is selecting an alternative tire size for the vehicle. Most vehicles have two or more sizes available that will fit properly without any modifications needed.
The newer Highlanders with 19" O.E. wheels can accommodate a 255/55R19 tire, which fits great and allows for better choices.
Choosing a different size tire can make many people a bit nervous because they are concerned that it may not be a good fit and cause mechanical problems with their vehicle. Luckily, we have the experience and knowledge to understand what tires work best with certain applications and this is a size that we know fits the Highlander well.
The most popular tire in this alternative size is the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza. This tire offers the best combination of traction, ride quality and tread life available for the Highlander. This is a great choice for drivers looking for a better performing and less expensive alternative to O.E. Toyota Highlander tires.
