I only went with the Factory chrome because I saw them and liked them better than the alloy's. As Homer stated, I wanted mine to look a little different than the average Murano and I also thought they went well with the grille. Now that I have the Stainless step bars, they kind of all tie together.
Do all MO's have full spare tire? 03...04...05? at first i thought mine had compact spare but reading label on door, stated compact spare tire is included but i have full spare with alloy rim. ????? any input?
I wanted chrome factory wheels but couldn't find any with the option already on it. So I got the factory chrome one's installed at the dealer afterwards at a cost of $1045 out the door and I kept the alloys. I'm currently in the process of selling the alloys so I'm going to end up with a cost of around $850 so that's not to bad.
Canadian Model comes with a full size alloy wheel with stock Goodyear tire. I think thats great. If you search the forum for Canadian Spare you'll find some info that pointed me to the fact that Canadian Mo spare comes with Alloy wheel. Does your Murano have Daytime Running Lights on when you start it??
As far as I am aware all Canadian models come with DTRL feature. Does not sound like your's has it. Is your cargo area floor board over the spare tire uneven, or does it stick up above the rest of the floor board? Canadian Model Spare tire covers are made differently than U.S. Models to accomodate the full size spare.
Yes that is the typical setup. The only reason I asked was that the U.S. Mo has to be rigged to hold a full size spare. If you do not modify the spare cover in some way, it will stick up above the side floor panels.
With the full size spare you leave out the formed storage compartment that is under the cargo deck spare compartment cover and on top the press board spacer. This makes room for the thicker tire, Like they do in Canada.
A search will find the picture as this has been on the forum before. GRIP .s
