Asked by Apr 30, 2012 at 12:16 AM about the 2009 Dodge Journey SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Tires on this Journey are 225/55/19, they are OEM equipment apparently, can't find anywhere but at dealer and I think they are overpriced.  Can find 235/55/19 size at other places, would this size be too wide or affect speedo or transmission shifting.  Snow already builds up in the wheelwells, maybe the slightly wider tire would make this problem worse.  Anyone have any ideas, or been there, done that????

At that OEM size I found only 2 tires availabe. A Kumho Solus and Toyo A23. You can go with the 235/55/19, it will be slightly wider and taller. It will effect the speedometer a tad, 1mph off. I've read other Journey users using this size tire with no ill effects and even commenting on how much better they are. One user was using the 235/55/19 Yokohama Parada Spec-X and loved them.

There is a TSB out from Chrysler with an alternative tire size for the 19" wheels on the Journeys, although I can't remember exactly what the size is... What kind of price were you hoping to pay for 19" tires?
