Has anyone notice an improvement in steering effort at low speeds with new tires? I'm wondering if the heavy steering at parking lot speed is related to tires or if it's the power steering system in our cars?

Those are good tires. I had them on my 2012. I'm probably going to go with an "All Weather" tire instead of all season. The 2 I'm considering are the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady and the Toyo Celsius SUV. I'm looking at ratings to see which will probably be the better tire. I really don't like the OEM Bridgestone Duelers. They are noisy and don't have much grip.

I'm not sure all weather tires will be quieter and have more grip than your Dueler but if this is the way you want to go Consumer Reports recently tested the 2 you're considering. I believe this will appear in their Nov issue. The WeatherReady is a better choice except on ice. Here's a quick overview FYI:
Ratings: snow ice dry wet handling comfort noise


WeatherReady good average average average good average good


Celsius good good average poor good average average


I hope this helps in your quest

Thanks, that does help. I may have to pick up a copy of Consumer Reports.

Did you get the H or V speed rating (I don't think there's a big difference)? I can get a good deal on a set of H rated from an owner of a brand new Cadillac XT5 who upgraded to 20" before taking delivery; he kept the wheels for winter tires. They have only have 5 miles! A few non-Platinum Murano owners went that way too.

FYI - Just put on 4 Cooper Evolution HT tires ($175 each at Midas out the door), drives like a new car now. A little bit more road feel, Steering *slightly* heavier at 34/35 psi. Some road noise in first 20 miles. After that, very quiet. Traction very good in rain (I do have AWD, so who really knows) The SUV doesn't handle like as much of a dead whale in the corners anymore.

I had "Multi-Mile Supreme CSX" on it before, which came with the Murano when purchased. Wow. Recommend against. I had to put them at 40 psi just so I wouldn't think I was flipping over in corners going normal speed. I am not sure if the sidewalls were just cushy or what. These tires were made by Sumitomo.
