Need Help - Premature Tire Wear on 2010 LE AWD
My wife's 2010 MO LE AWD is wearing out tires in 22K-23K miles despite regular rotation. We live in Dallas, TX. She is not an aggressive driver, puts on about 8000-9000 miles per year, and drives about 75% in town and 25% highway. The OEM tires went 22.3K miles, and the next set (Yoko Parada Spec-X's) went 22.7K miles. Both sets were rotated regularly (the first set every 7500 miles and the second set every 5000 miles). In both cases, the dealer confirmed there was nothing wrong with the alignment or suspension to explain the wear. Today the dealer told me this is a known issue with the Murano no matter what tire is on the car, although he couldn't explain why. The Yoko's were purchased at Discount Tire, and they are blaming the car, but the dealer says there is nothing wrong. Has anyone else had this problem with the Murano? I would think if this was common, there would be many unhappy MO owners, but I can't find any evidence online. What suggestions do you have to get to the bottom of this issue?
P.S. - we have owned 3 Infiniti's and 2 Nissans and never had this problem before. We ran the Yoko's on our FX-35, and they were great and wearing well when it was sold.
