The 2019 Toyota RAV4 comes with either 17-inch, 18-inch, or 19-inch tires – it depends on which trim level you have. The base LE trim comes with 17-inch steel wheels wrapped in 225/65 R17 tires, whereas the next-in-line XLE and XLE Premium trims are fitted with 17-inch alloy wheels shod in the same 225/65 R17 tires. The Adventure trim level, on the other hand, comes with beefier 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 235/55 R19 tires. Finally, the Limited trim level comes standard with 19-inch alloy wheels carrying 235/55 R19 tires, while there is an optional 18-inch alloy wheel package that swaps in 18-inch wheels clad in 235/60 R18 tires.
It’s worth noting that tire size plays an important role in a vehicle’s overall performance. Larger tires – like the 19-inch ones equipped on the Adventure and Limited trims – could provide better handling and stability on the road, but they also come with a trade-off in ride comfort and fuel efficiency. Smaller tires – like the 17-inch ones found on the LE and XLE trims – offer a smoother ride, but can sometimes sacrifice performance over larger tires.
When ordering replacement tires for your Toyota RAV4, it’s important to match the original tire size and specifications. Your vehicle’s owner’s manual and/or the tire placard located inside the driver’s side door jamb will give you all the necessary information about the recommended tire size and inflation pressures. You should also consider other factors, such as the type of driving you do and the weather conditions you encounter, when selecting new tires to ensure that they meet your needs and expectations.
