In need of new tires

I am looking at getting new tires for my 2003 murano and want to see what people are using and or reccomend. Looking for somthing that will give a good smooth ride with best traction in wet and snow without getting snow tires.

Tires are so subjective that it is hard to recommend a tire based on personal driving habits and type of terrain, roads, etc. I have read fabulous reviews of tires that I used and were just dreadful, and vice versa. Here in WV where I live, I feel fortunate to get 25,000 - 30,000 out of any set of tires. Our roads are hilly, crooked, and not very smooth.

So just keep in mind that whatever is recommended will probably not work exactly the same on your car and for your type of driving.

I suggest that you search for numerous tire reviews here - including in the [Tires and Wheels] forum - and read the reviews of various tires online at and Lots of good info is available at your convenience.

If it's any help, I have been pleasantly surprised by the Firestone Destination LE tires (M+S rated) that had just been installed on my 07 Murano when I got it. Quiet, good traction even in Colorado snow country, and good handling. A couple of other forum members have commented positively on them as well.

I have 4 - 20" Zinik Machined Silver Wheels and 265/50/20 Yokohama Parada Spec X (M+S rated) tires for sale. I have only had the tires for 5 months but they are the second set of the same brand and model of tires and they run great in the summer as well as the winter.

I have BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A tires on my 06' Murano. They work great on dry, wet, and icy roads. I was one of the only few people to be able to drive here in the south when it snowed a couple years back without sliding due to having the BF Long Trail tires on the Murano. The BF Long Trail tires had enough grip to help the Murano's AWD pull up ice cover hills with ease. However, The OEM Goodyear tires only kept slipping on the ice, hence the change.

Installed a set of Cooper CS4 Tourings after lots of rave reviews here. Great in the dry and rain, won't know about snow until we get some. Looking at the tread though I don't expect snow to be an issue. Seems aggressive enough for the slop without compromising the road biased nature of a car like the Murano. I used to run Dueler A/T's on my Expedition and that thing could break a trail for the snowplows but that much tire is probably overkill in this case.

Gonna depend on your rims. OEM wheels will dictate not a lot of options for you.....Then you'll have to judge how much you want to pay...The decision will be forced....I ran Kumho Solus and they were /....meh......ok on dry, but wet/snow was scary....they didn't last ...good fuel efficiency.....OEM Goodyears were ok and lasted longer than my I have Hanooks.....and they have yet to test snow, wet they seem ok I haven't hit to much wet roads yet....fuel efficency sucks though.....
