I've put about 10K on mine too. So far, no noticeable wear and performance still excellent compared to Goodyears. Zero issues with ride quality at this point.

I was at my local tire dealership and they gave me this quote:

Yokohama Geolandar G052
265/60/18

$572 set of 4 installed.

Is this a good price?

Thats reasonable. Considering Tirerack charges $125/tire, your total price is lower than that with tax and shipping.

I had 47,000 miles on my stock GY and finally replaced them yesterday with Yoko Geolanders. I haven't put too may miles on them yet, but I LOVE these tires already.

I also love this forum. I haven't posted much, but have gotten a lot of good info from others' posts.

Thanks!

I have to agree. I have about 5K miles on mine now, and they are just awesome. Really bad rain the other day and it handled great. Plus the car just looks sharp with them

Yokohama Geolanders photos

Hello everyone, this is the very first post I make and don't want to miss the opportunity to congratulate such a great site like this, you can find lots of useful information about a great car like Murano.

I live in Mexico city, have an MO 2004 SL with 55K Km (34K miles), still have 25% left in my stock GY but I'm starting to look for an option for changing my tires down here but I don't know what actually can get.

The performance in rain now has decrease dramatically and I think I'm going to have to change them before they wear out.

Does anyone have a photo you could share about how an MO looks like with these yokos?

Does anyone know what options are available in México?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
Raúl.

We just installed these on the wife's murano this weekend. so far i'm very impressed with them. they look great, and no vibrations, balance issues, etc...at least to 80 mph. we're going for a very long ride this weekend...will give more feedback after.

but as of now, much better than the worn out stock GY.

How do explain this than. Its taken from a tire size calculator

The stock size is actually 235/65/18 (not 60)

MY BAD

Buy even that, its only an aceptable 3% difference.
UR right, it is better with 255/60/18, but if i can get a better car tire thats different by only 3% - I'd do it.

I just had the Yoko Geolander's installed and have about 200 miles on them. It seems like they have a noticably higher rolling resistance than the OEM's. I'll be checking MPG to verify but through my butt-o-meter I've noticed it. Am I imagining things? If I'm not, do these tires "break in" after XXX number of miles?

Michelin Latitude Tour

Well, I've been reading and researching many, many posts/comments, and I finally decided to go with the Michelin's. I've only had them for a week, but so far handling is marginally better than the Eagle LS's, and they are about 35% quieter. The ride also seems less truck-like.
I went with the 265/60R18 on the stock rims, and they look ok, but I was expecting them to look a bit wider (should have taken before and after pics, I guess).
I'm hoping they'll be good in the snow, but I won't know that for a number of months from now.
In case anyone wants to know what they look like mounted, I'll attach some pics. All in all, I'm quite happy so far (especially since the total, including mounting, balancing and taxes actually cost $218.76 CDN less than the stock Eagle LS's!)
In the end I think that everyone will have to make their own choice as to what they go with. There are so many different needs/wants/desires, and different driving styles, different weather and road conditions and even the condition of the vehicle can play a part in how the tires perform.
All in all, I'm happy with my choice, and just want to say that I really appreciate this forum! I've gotten lots and lots of good ideas from here!
