This is mostly a note to myself, but I thought it might be of use to some of you… The new Highlander comes with either 18-inch (LE, LE Plus, and XLE) or 19-inch (Limited and Limited Platinum) wheels. The appropriate tire sizes for these models are 245/60R18 and 245/55R19, respectively.
Our new XLE came with Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia tires in the aforementioned 245/60R18 size with a 104T service description. The “104” refers to a load index of 1,984 lbs (900 kg) per tire and the “T” reflects a maximum speed rating of 118 mph (190 kph).
These tires have a treadlife warranty of 5 years or 65,000 miles with full replacement for the first 3 years. And, according to TireRack.com, they average 4.5 out of 5 stars based on over 100 customer reviews.
