I would not recommend the Cross Terrains on a Murano. I just went through a set on my wife's 2007 MO 2WD. Tires were originally purchased from Costco with 40K miles on the vehicle. I ended-up getting 37K miles out of the tires (worn down to the wear bars) which are rated for 65K miles.

However, the bigger problem was the noise. These were the noisiest tires I've ever had on a vehicle. I've had 4WD trucks with knobby tires that did not make as much noise as these tires. They were a huge disappointment in this regard.

The tires were rotated religiously every 7500 miles, plus I had an alignment shortly after the tires were purchased. There are no suspension issues on the car either... all of which I've had checked out to see if anything other than the tires themselves were causing the noise problems.

There is some cupping on the tires. Costco is therefore not standing behind the warranty insisting that the cupping must be due to an alignment or suspension issue. I'm not a tire expert, but I have researched this issue, and my guess is that there is something about the design of this tire that does not make it a good fit for the suspension system of the Murano.

Not sure what tires I'll buy next, but they definitely won't be another set of cross terrains!

I said they are a dreadful tire. But that was my experience, yours may differ. I certainly think they are an awful tire in snow and on slick roads. but then again, that's my experience.

Pricey for an average (but not great tire). I'd go for the Yokohama Avid Envigor instead. All around better performance.




2003 Midnight Blue SE AWD w/VDC
Colgan Bra, Mobil One, JWT POP charger
PAC aux input adapter, hardwired Escort Passport x50, KUDA mount for MP3 player, Porterfield R4S brake pads (now Akebono ProACT), ATE Superblue
Yokohama Envigor (much improved over stock Goodyears)
Lots of squeaks and rattles.
R.I.P. 10/15/2015 CVT failure.

I know Eric does not like the BFGoodrich long trail touring t/a so much but I currently have that on my 04 for over 10K miles now and its performing great. Granted I live in Vegas so rain and snow is a none factor - only heat. But so far so good. I like it. Got mine at Sams club 2 years or so back and paid 155/tire with free install discount. I would recommend it. Its was the cheapest good alternative for me then discounting falken, kumho, hankook and firestone which I don't trust. I think it would do well in your Florida rain. Good luck.

1st Gen Murano - Tires

On my 2nd set of Cooper CS4 Touring.

81,000 on first set. Changed because I live in the northeast it was going into winter. Could have probably gotten 10 - 15,000 more.

I have 191,500 on my 2003 Murano and the CS4's have been the best. The CS4's are much better in the rain and snow than the stock Goodyear's.

Well I'm at discount and they put the 235/65/18 yokahoma 580s on and they looked too small so I'm changing to a 265 Michelin latitude for same price of $740 out the door with insurance. Good tire? Good deal?
