I purchased my Toyota Highlander in 2007 and the SUV had Toyo tires installed. I found that I really liked these tires and when the time came for replacing them I looked around for a company that carried the Toyo tires. I discovered that Kaufmanns has Toyo tires and purchased my new tires there.. The Toyo tires are not only reasonably priced but if purchased at the right place they automatically come with hazard insurance. The Toyo tires allow my Highlander to handle very well in all kinds of weather but the really good deal comes in wet weather, the traction is great. I have never had my car skid or even slip the tiniest bit. Living in the South I am unable to comment about snow but on icy roads there is no better tire then the Toyo. I have had to drive on several occasions in icy conditions and have never had any problems with the car handling or any traction issues. I have had other types of tires in the past but none of them have been as good as the Toyo which also lasts up to 65,000 miles.. and actually does last that long.
