Sorry guys the current tire size is 245/35z/r20 and there toyo n7000 i believe... I think i should get 295/40/r20?

I'm not going to spend the time to look up the diameters on those but I personally would be very motivated to get rid of 35-series tires, selling them and getting into some tires that are at least a 50-series profile. Those would be much safer around road hazards and IMO they fit in with the purpose and character of the car. A Murano is not a pocket rocket or rice racer.

Personal statement: I am not a fan of running any profile lower than a 50-series sidewall on any car except one that's a "special purpose" vehicle.

That's great. I just imagined going up in rim size could potentially compromise the ride. I might end up switching to fx35 20" rims if I can find some for a good price.

You don't have to do anything right away, just be aware of your speedo error and don't climb any curbs. ;)

I don't know what your OEM rims and tires are - I don't believe you've mentioned them. I'd make sure you're happy with the 20's and whichever tire you choose before turning loose of whatever OEM stuff you have. At that point, you might be in good shape to sell the OEM stuff and recover at least part of your expenses. I'd also make darn sure that you know what kind of wheel those new ones are in case you ever need a replacement.

You're getting some good info here, but I'm not the only one contributing. Be aware that I'm an older member and generally take the practical side of a decision rather than the "bling" side. YMMV. I do note that you've had a couple of recommendations in the 50-55 ratios for sidewalls (I think BillARF was one, and he seems to know his cars).

My preference for staying with slightly higher sidewalls is based on a lot of forum surfing and reading. I've not gone lower then 55-series on anything I run, but I drive long trips and go into the Colorado mountains for skiing, so I want to get where I'm going and I'm not big on aftermarket mods.

The rims are nice! Personally I would get a 265 for more traction and a more aggressive stance, just like the BMW X5. And put lowering springs on that MO. I hate it when people puts 20's or 22's and keeps the stock height. It just shows your ostentatious quality does not jive with true tunning concepts and lack of knowledge for tunner cars.

You can search the tire forum on this website, but you can also hit Tirerack.com and Discounttire.com and look at the tire reviews there. I think they'll help a lot.

Looking good with those new wheels and grille! :D

I'm not a personal fan of the bull bar but I think I would reconsider if I lived in NY.
