The Nissan Maxima has been a popular sports sedan for many years due to its great combination of luxury features, sporty handling and room for full-sized adults to fit comfortably in the back seats.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II

OEM on my '12 Nissan Armada Platinum and so far, with only 1200 miles on them, they have below average snow traction. I always slow it down when there is snow on the ground even in a big 'ol SUV but now I have to slow it down even more. Dry and wet traction on-road is fine but seems noisy on certain roads. My previous '12 Armada SL with Michelins which was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

We bought 4 215X45X17 XL Conti Extreme Contact DWS and had them mounted in October 2010 at Martin Tire in Worcester Ma, a Tire Rack recommended service center. They did an excellent job, inflating to 40 psi, did not scratch the allow rims, and it has never been necessary to return for rebalancing. We went through the 2010-2011 winter with record snowfalls...  Read More

Best Nissan Murano Tires for All-Season and Snow Traction.

My in-laws recently purchased a 2010 Nissan Murano SL. They were looking for a crossover SUV to use for traveling and daily driving and this vehicle fit the bill perfectly. While the Murano was in excellent condition, the tires were not. The tires' remaining tread depth measured at 4/32" in the rear and closer to 2/32" in the front. With winter fast...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

This is the second set of Firestone Destination A/T tires I have purchased. For the money you can not beat this tire. I have owned 2 Nissan X-Terra's and the OEM's lasted less than 40,000 miles before being replaced with the Firestone Destination A/T. In both vehicles they lasted approximatley 65,000 miles. I am just starting to look at pricing a new set (I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy LX4

I have a set of these Michelin LX4 on my Odyssey EXL. I had always been happy with Michelin in the past on my Honda Accords and Nissan. They are generally more quiet than any other tires of comparable costs, particularly when they get olders (35K+). This set performs well for the most part with no exception. I rotated my tires every 7.5K so they wear evenly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I am from Montreal and ordered them and have them installed in the US. The whole process was smooth.The tires are quite good for winter conditions. I get amazing traction in almost all situations. We have had a few serious snow storms and a few days of freezing rain. I have never had any problems accelerating, braking and cornering. I rarely engage the ABS....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO

I have read other reviews that these tires tend to hydroplane, but they have never done so with me. I live in Central NY where we average 150 inches of snow a year and I have never even been close to being stuck and have pulled many others out of ditches. Granted I drive an FJ Cruiser with all the bells and whistles, but the tires get some credit. The noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I purchased these tires to replace the Michelin Latitude tires on my 2011 Nissan Armada SL 4x4. The tire shop initially refused to put them on the car, saying that the speed and sidewall rating were less than the OEM. I confirmed through several web sites, my Nissan dealership, and Michelin that these tires are appropriate for my Armada.So far, I love these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

My wife is amazed at what an improvement these Michelin MXV4's make compared to the OE Continental ContiPro Contact tires, which we thought were very good. The traction is improved in wet and dry conditions, and the ride is magically smooth. Much better than the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus I paid a lot more for. Caveat: the comparison is a little...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I live in Ottawa, Canada where the average snowfall is measured in yards rather than inches. We have had freezing rain storms given the global warming and the Michelin X-i13 tires performed almost flawlessly in every situation. Their only weakness in my opinion is the softer sidewall designed and used for comfort rather than for immediate response on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT21

I bought a 2007 Nissan Xterra with 50k miles and these tires came with it. I have 90k miles on the Xterra now, and these tires have been great. I live in Wisconsin and have run the Xterra through 15 inches of snow going through corn fields, and they handled great. Even in moderate mud they still grip and pull you out. To give you some perspective, last...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is the Most Boring Snow Tire I have ever driven on in 40 years of driving!I picked the unstudded Altimax Artic tires up at the Tire Rack Connecticut Distribution Center only yesterday, and as I was getting them installed found out we were getting snow last night. I work nights about 25 miles away, and the drive is on a rural state highway which is...  Read More

Best On-/Off-Road All-Terrain Tires in Snow

Dedicated winter / snow tires perform better than non-winter tires on snow- and ice-covered roads. The downside is that winter tires aren't designed for year-round use, therefore an additional set of tires is needed.   In light of this, some light truck and SUV drivers choose to compromise and use one set of tires all 12 months of the year. Many will choose a...  Read More
