Toyota Sienna Spare Tire
Customer Question - "I need to speak to someone about my Toyota Sienna van - there is a spare tire underneath it and I need to figure out how to get it down so I can use it"

Toyota Chat Answer - salesman Rafael Romero "Go to the right side of the vehicle, open the sliding door. Right behind the passenger side, look under the carpet between the front seat and the middle seat there is a little screw under there. In the very back is the tool to help you screw that down - this is where the tire will release so you can change the spare."

George Henaut's Question: When purchasing a 2013 Rav 4... what are the advantages/disadvantages of installing winter tires with 18" rims or 17" rims??

Toyota Chat Answer: Mr. Henaut the only advantage of getting winter tires for a Rav4 would be if you owned a 2 wheel drive; the 4 wheel drive or All wheel drive Rav4’s are already able to handle normal winter weather. All Rav4’s come standard with All Season Steel-belted radial blackwalls, and the rim size is determined by the trim level. The LE and XLE come with a 17’’ rim and the Limited comes with the 18’’ rim.

Overall our service manager says that with normal winter weather there is no advantage to getting winter tires vs. the one’s that come on the Rav4 to begin with, unless you live in a state in which winter weather occurs more frequently or tends to be a little harsher than in other states.

Ever wonder if your vehicle has a timing belt or a timing chain.... well this might help.
