Tire brand/model

What brand and model tires did your RAV4 come with?
Mine came equipped with the craptastic Toyo Open Country A20's. Worst snow traction, ever.
My 2005 with Nexen brand tires handles better.

2017 RAV4 Limited - Black/Cinnamon Softex, Advanced Tech Package, Mudguards and Door Edge Guards.

2005 RAV4 Limited 200K Miles - Blue/Ash Softex , Roof Rack w/crossbars, Heated Seats, Mudguards, Sunroof, Spoiler, Preferred Accessory Package

'15 Limited came with Toyo A20s, sucky tires at best! The '16 HV came with Yoko Geolandar G91A, about the same.

My 2015 Limited came with some Toyo crap tires that are worthless in rain or snow. They have about 25k on them and are probably 70% gone. I won't even mention the fact they can't be balanced properly. There are enough weights on those wheels to sink a ship.

I have the Toyo's as well. After 2 summers (I run Winter's on rims from October to April) the inner and outer edges are gone. I don't corner hard and drive for fuel economy, not performance. The tires must have 18,000 km on them at the most. I hate it that I will have to replace the tires before the lease is up.

Really? Did you request that? Seems like an awfully expensive tire to put on an LE model. Those are nice!

I didn't request them. Bought the LE right off the lot. The salesman said it just came in off the truck. Maybe it's a "made for Toyota" version of the Latitude?

I sure like the ride though. I've read so many posts here about road noise with the RAV4, but my LE is very quiet. Quieter than the Outback I traded in and quieter than my girlfriend's CR-V.

Regardless, I've always put Michelin's on my cars when it came time to replace the tires (usually Defenders), so I was stoked to see the Latitudes.

Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus. I make sure proper tire pressure is maintained.
