In any case, I was going to post yesterday how the VDC saved my can on the way to work. It was raining, I took an exit with a very sharp turn way too quickly, and the rear just let go. I mean, no doubt it just came right out from under me right away. Then the front let go and it was out of my hands. Suddenly WHAM! I could feel the front left and both rear brakes apply and stopped the skid immediately. The rear only rotated around 5 degrees or so before the front let go and the VDC kicked in. I had to negotiate an S-turn so I didn't notice if the VDC light was blinking on the dash. That little piece of code just saved me thousands in damages.
Looking at my treads, they look fine, but the fronts have been chirping on moderate starts for a couple months now, and (as I've said here before) I have no intention of going through the winter on these tires.
I believe the ideal plus zero size on the Murano is 255/60/18.senza said:Kris - I like the look of a "plus size" tire...more muscular/sporty...also rationalize replacing stock tire with larger one based on increased safety and better handling...compared to the stock Goodyears, the 265 x 60 is .49 " taller and 1.18 " wider....speedometer reads 2% low...looked at the Yokohamas as they were rated by several tire forums as being excellent in snow(probably not a factor for you)...they ride and handle great on the MO....quiet...wearing well with 21,000 kms on them....one slight annoyance: the wider tire does throw up more dirt/debris on the side of the vehicle...need a slightly wider mud guard....
