My wife passed her car on to our teen son, and I passed my 2017 Murano S to my wife (after I replaced the radio because she had to have Android Auto). So I went out and bought a new 2021 Murano SV. It gave me some perks my 2017 S didn't have, and I preferred the Deep Blue Pearl of the 2021 to the former Arctic Blue Metallic.
I know it's not popular with a lot of people, but I like the chrome delete look so that is my eventual goal with my Murano. But I also wanted a better stance from the rear so I wanted to add wider tires. However, I didn't want it so much that I felt that need to get aftermarket rims. So I just had my stock rims powder coated. I also didn't want to buy new tires when I had perfectly good tires already on the car. But our 2017 needed some tires, so I bought some Pirelli Scorpion AS Plus 3's in 265/60 R18 to replace the OEM Michelin Latitude Tour in 235/65 R18. I then had the Michelins installed on the 2017. Got my wider tires without feeling like I was wasting money.
I definitely like the look of these tires better. It's not a super obvious difference, but it is noticeable without the expense of getting new rims. I'm still trying to make up my mind on performance. So far I would say the Pirellis are very slightly quieter and provide a slightly better ride. I have been telecommuting full-time so I don't have consistent drives in which to compare gas mileage, but I wouldn't be surprised to find out I lost 1 to 1.5 mpg with the switch.
Now I just need to work on getting that chrome covered.

That size change throws off your speedometer by about 1.5 mph. Better off with 255 (not 265). No difference in speed
Better off is relative. A 1.6% change in the speedometer doesn't bother me, and I won't be going the 90+ mph necessary to get to your 1.5 mph number anytime soon.
