Toyota Camry Tires and Wheels



  • igrigr Posts: 17
    I've put Michelin Primacy™ MXV4 on my Camry 2004 LE in September 2007. Good grip of the road and quiet ride. I've been driving with them through snowy Toronto winter and had no problems. The only con of these tires is price :(

    We are ready to replace the OE tires Bridgestone Protenza tires. I do not want to get them again as they did not last very long. Any suggestions as to tires that will last longer and not loose the ride quality.

    We are looking at the Cooper CS4 H/V that seem to be recommended. I believe Toyota recommends the V-rated tire - why I do not know. Any suggestions on tires that will not cost an arm and a leg? Thanks.

    After doing some more research, Here is a list of tires that I have come up with.

    Michelin Pilot Exalto AS
    Goodyear Assurance
    Sumitomo Touring LSV
    Yokohama AS430
    Cooper CS4 V
    Toyo - something (I cannot remember the name of the tire)

    Any suggestions as to which would be best for a 2006 Camry XLE for ride quality, handling, and treadlife? Thanks for any help.

    Same here (2007 LE I4 5SP AT). Discovered that front passenger side and both rear struts were blown at 35k miles. The guy at the tire shop said he's seen a lot of '07 Camrys with premature strut failures. The dealer replaced the front pass strut but not the rears. I think the driver side one has now failed. Not much oil on it, but it feels wobbly. I wonder of an internal seal has failed. I have also noticed that there is strange cupping appearing on the shoulder blocks of my new tires (6k miles). The alignment is recently adjusted and was pretty good to begin with, so I wonder if the replaced strut has now failed, so I've got bad ones all around, and that's what's causing that strange looking tire wear. The car definitely doesn't handle like it did originally...
  • The dealer said have to rotate the tires. To me is a bunch of BS. Without rotating tires, it should not wear the way it does. Yes, i just met a friend who works for Toyota, he also said the struts they are using is "JUNK". Hopefully it's not over the milage for you to bring it back in for them to replace your struts. Smythe, please let me know how things went. Toyota should do a recall on the 07 camrys. After this issue and treatment I got from the dealer I bought from, I'm staying away from Toyota the next time I buy a car!

    Well, I did get new tires. I opted for the Sumitomo Touring LSV Tires....and.....boy and I glad I did. Man, these might be the best tires I have ever owned. I will definintley get another set when wear out, in about 60,000 miles or so.

    The ride is great, they handle well in the rain; I cannot wait to try them in the snow. These are great tire for the Camry. We have a 2006 Camry XLE. I highly recommend these tires. The price is right too; about 1/2 the price of Michelin. :D
  • This past weekend, we made a trip to visit a relative (150-mile 1-way). We stopped by a gas station on the way there and upon inspection of all tires, we saw a nail about 1/2 inch sticking out of the right back tire. We managed to make it to a local Walmart store where we purchased 2 brand new Douglas Xtra-Trac II (215/60/R16) tires and had them installed in the rear. They were the least expensive ($65/ea). The nail was about 3 inches long!

    Does anyone have any experience with these Douglas tires? I can't seem to find any reviews anywhere out there.
  • What tires come from the factory on 2008 or 2009 LE I4 Camry?
  • I just bought the Sumitomo Touring LSV tires for my 2007 Toyota Camry and I love them! Great handling and quiet!
  • I have an 06 camry LE with 15 inch hubs but i want to change that and put rims. I have 16 inch acura rims from about and 01 CL, before taking it to the get it checked out by a mechanic i wanted to ask and see what you guys think. Two things, first is it possible for it to fit and surely that means a change in tires and i should mention that both tires are 215's? and secondly would there be a way to change the center caps to toyota center caps if the acura tires do fit?
    Thanks in advance.
  • You need to keep the overall diameter of the tires within 3% of the stock. What are the sizes of the 2 tires? For example, 215-15-60 has a diameter 25.15 inches and 215-16-60 is 26.15 inches which equates to being 3.83% larger than stock and unrecommended. In order for the 215-16 tire to fit on your car, you need 55 or 50 series tires. The hubs sizes for both cars are different, you would need hub centric rings to get a good fit. Post up the tire sizes and I can tell you whether or not they'll work.
  • My 09 LE came with Bridgestone Turanza EL400 from the factory. Can someone comment how these tires hold up on the long run?
  • Thank you for the immediate responce and i have to correct myself. The tires on the camry now are Goodyear Integrity's and are 205-65-R15. The acura tires are put on tires in my backyard that are 205-60-R16.
    And please tell me what you think about the centercaps?
    I doubt that acura centercaps would fit but if anyone can positively tell me that it will work then i am going to go ahead and put them on since it all depends on the centercaps because it would be really weird to have acura rims on a camry?
    Thank you
  • The 205-65-16 is a lower profile tire and will result in a +1.96mph change in your speedometer reading. Fitment wise, it is approximately 3.2% smaller in diameter than the 205-60-15 tire which is not recommended. You'll probably be OK but most experts will recommend you to stay within 3% +/- from stock size.

    As far as the center caps goes, the hub sizes between Toyota and Acura are different. As such, the center caps most likely will not fit.

    I currently have approximately 29K miles. All four tires are shot! Bridgestone Turanze EL400 P215/60R 16.

    Any suggestions from anyone in terms of decent tires to buy? Not looking to get top of the line. Just something comparable with better quality.

  • We recently got 4 tires at Sears. They were BFGoodrich Traction T / A 94V rated tires for about $100/ea.
  • I just got 17 inch camry rims and i want to upgrade from my 15 inch hubs (205 65 R 15). What would be the safest tire size for the 17 inch rims?

    go to Find the diameter of oriignal sized tire. Using that diameter, find the corresponding 17" size equivalent.

    If the Camry is made in USA, it comes with Bridgestone tires.
    If the Camry is made in Japan, it comes with Michelin tires.

    My Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires are 1 year old (about 11,000 km driven). Have rotated tires recently and according to mechanic front were 9 of 32 and rear 8 of 32 worn.
  • My Kentucky built Camry LE came with Michelin Tires
  • I have a 2000 Camry LE V6 with 120,000+ miles. I need new tires--again--my third set. My problem is terrible traction on wet roads - almost no traction on snow.
    Any suggestions on a good wet weather tire? I've had this problem since I bought the car--hence the three sets of tires.
  • I was wondering if you have any advise for, if on Toyota Camry SE 2007 I can replace my current 17" rims to 16 " rims.

    The issue is that I have 215/55 R17 all season tires and I am currently in the market looking for winter tires and 215/55 R17 tires are very expensive.

    If I go with 16"rims they are less than half in price.

    My issue is would the 16" rims fit my car as I am not sure on the clearance in the hub for the calipers, discs, ABS sensor and other stuff if I switched to 16" rims.

    Your advise is greatly appreciated.
  • Sure, you can go with 16" wheels/tires. The stock size for CE/LE/XLE models is 215/60/16 which will fit the SE fine. Just be sure to get wheels with the 5-114.3mm bolt pattern and offset around 38. You may need hub centric rings as well.

    Just got a used 2006 Camry LE....60K miles...the tires are Firestone Firehawk GT size 205/65-15 92H M+S .. with like new tread on oem steel wheels. I have a lot of "road" noise! Very loud! What would you suggest for replacements? Need all seasons here! And what year and model wheels will fit so I can have a set of snows for the winter? Thanks :)

    I believe the original stock tire size for your Camry was 215/65-15. Who ever replaced them before probably got smaller ones to save money. Just keep in mind that your speedometer is slightly off, it reads a bit faster due to the smaller rolling diameter.

    I replaced my high priced Goodyear Eagle ResponsEdge tires because they rode harsh and loud with the inexpensive Falken Ziex ZE-912. I am very happy with the smoother ride and lower road noise. See my response 2 posts up for wheel requirements/specification. There are too many wheels on the market to list any specific ones.

    You can move up to 17" wheel without too much ride quality loss. You can pair the 17" wheels with 225/50-17 tires for best results. Note that with 18" inch and above tires/wheels, you'll start feeling all the imperfections in the road.

    Actually, 205/65-15 is the stock tire size for Camry base and LE models for the 2002-06 model years. All 15-inch steel wheels used for these model years are identical. I have a 2004 Camry bought new, and it came with this size tire -- the Goodyear Integrity brand was used in my case. These tires don't have the greatest reputation, but they were quiet and gave me reasonable tread life.

    I replaced them with Hankook Optimo H417 tires, same size. These were also quiet, and were wearing evenly with no issues. More recently, before the Optimos had to be replaced, I was able to obtain a nearly new set of 2006 Avalon XL stock alloy wheels and tires, size 215/60-16. This size was standard on the 2002-06 Camry XLE and is standard on all 2007-09 Camrys except the SE. The tires are the infamous Bridgestone Potenza RE-92s, but the rapid treadwear others have noted aren't a problem for me.
  • I have a 2007 Camry LE with the less than desirable six spoke wheel covers and I have found the 6 spoke alloys from an SE for pennies from a relative. They are the 17 inch wheels. Will these fit without a problem? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
  • 210delray210delray Posts: 4,722
    They will fit without problems. Of course, you'll need new tires. The wheel offset could be slightly different if the SE wheels are from a pre-2007 model.
  • They are from another 2007.
