Have them on my mom's Pilot (4400Lbs) and love them. Swapped out the stock bridgestones at 10k for these. Quiet, rides very well, wears well, and has substantially better traction and wet handling than the stock bridgestones.

After looking at bit, they offer it in 275/55/18 which is 30.1" in diameter. Stock GY LS on the murano is 30" in diameter. Only thing I'd be worried about is if the 275 series tire is too wide for the murano. However, Kris has fitted a 265 with no problems so the extra centimeter may not be an issue.

They're rated highly considering they have about 11 million miles on them.

$156 per tire.

Close to similar load ratings. 104 (GY LS) vs 109 for the Michelin.

Anyways just throwing it out as a possibility. My friend has the same sized crossterrains as the pilot and he drives a substantially lighter ford explorer sport (3900lbs like the murano) and they ride well in spite of his solid rear axle and leaf springs. The pilot has an independent multilink rear suspension like the murano and it rides even better than his explorer sport.

Even if it fits, its a heavier tire, which means it might spoil your ride quality and affect acceleration times and braking distances.

I really don't see the need to oversize tires so much unless you have a specific need (and I don't think the Murano is a 4x4!)

Stock is 235, I don't see a need to go beyond 245/255 (at the most). You are just added weight and decreasing stopping power.

Problem is that there are not too many plus zero sizes for the Murano, other than the exact diameter 255/60/18. 265/60/18 would be going slightly oversized...

Checked with tirerack. The Michelins are 35lbs, one pound more than the Toyo Proxes S/T everyone's been running. Searched on google and got a hit at freshalloy with someone actually running these tires and he seems to like it.

Are the SE's bigger tires than on the SL's? I assumed they were all the same.
