Anyone have these tires on their Murano? I am thinking about purchasing a set of 4 - 255 / 55 / 18

The reviews look great from Tirerack.com (See below)

These tires are undersized in terms of overall diameter, so your speedometer will read higher than usual. Ideal plus zero size would be 255/60/18, but its hard to find tires in that size. Another size to consider is 265/60/18, which is closer to stock diameter than 255/55/18.

The Alenza HL is a very good tire, from all I've read about it. They will be the OEM tire for the upcoming GMC full size SUVs (Tahoe, Surbuban, Escalade, etc...) I went with the Yokohama Geolandar HTS G052 in 265/60 and am very happy with them.

The OEM tires have a diameter of 30.0 inches. The tire you are proposing has a diameter of 29.0 inches. Unless you are going for that particular look the 255/55 tires will look relatively small in the wheel well.

In addition, your speedometer will read 3.3% too fast.
