The 255/60/18 is the same overall high and diameter as the OEM. I have see posts where someone has put 275's without rubbing.

Goodyears off... TOYOS ON!

My wife just called and said the Toyo Proxes S/T's [255/60/18] are on and she is driving it home from the shop as I type.

I asked her if she could tell if there was any difference... she said "no."

I'll take them out tonight and see how they feel.

Can't wait to see my new Murano's shoes!!!

Hows about a pic from the back, straight. With the tires being wider, I'm wonder if it will have a sand-blasting effect around the wheels.

I went to tirerack.com and they have the Goodyears in stock for $107. So I don't see why they would be on back order anywhere. One of the main reasons I switched to the MO was for the quietness compared to my Excursion. So I think I would stick with the oem's for now if I were getting new one's.

I agree,however these even though they are not available in the right size intrigue me. First brought up by SugarRush.


New Dunlop SP SPORT MAXX tires....
This just came out on DEC 1st, 2004.

Press release here: http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/s...02557673&EDATE=

And here is the thread pattern and spec:
http://www.dunloptires.com/dunlop/d...rea=Performance

The "DUNLOP SP MAXX" name is running down the center of its treadface. Oy, really cool.
Pitty, it does not come in Murano's size.

OK, finally found the Toyos... I keep getting caught with that 30 day listing of posts, I thought I told the system to show me more than that. (Something to check out, now...)

So, now I'm looking at this and thinking I may stick with the OEM's again... Traction's nice, but the OEM's have been quite acceptable and more noise is not something I want...

Ahh... Decisions decisions...

The Nissan Murano... Love at first drive!
But this is what I drive these days... Does a 12.21 second 1/4 mile @117.7 mph.

If noise is your concern I suggest you go with OEM Goodyears.

Had there not been a back order I would have bought the OEM tires also.

And yes, there was a NATIONAL BACKORDER at the time I needed tires. It was mid-December 2004. You cannot get those ANYWHERE: tirerack, Goodyear dealers, Nissan dealers, nobody had them...

I've found that as the S/Ts get older, they are getting noisier. Especially at about 80km/h (50mph?).

I found the OEM Goodyears got a bit noisier too, so I don't think you can avoid it. It's more a matter of how bad it is.

Fortunately, I'm not in a rush to get them, so I'm thinking of picking a shop and ordering them now. Then I won't be forced into something else.

koren, where did you buy your Toyos from and how much did you pay? They are out of stock in Canada for at least another three weeks and I may not want to wait if I can buy online and have them shipped for a decent price.

"much rougher than stock Goodyear's" But do they handle better? I'm assuming a stronger sidewall related to a rougher ride.

I'd hate to have a louder/rough ride without a (big) handling improvement.

They're selling them in Canada now? I had to have mine shipped in from the US. They weren't selling the 255/60/18s here.
