Nissan Murano Tires

A close relative of mine recently needed replacement tires for her 2006 Nissan Murano. She was replacing the Original Equipment Goodyear Eagle LS tires. If you've reviewed our Tire Survey Results, you'll see that there are better options available. Here are three of the top tires I recommended for her in the Murano's factory tire size of 235/65R18.

Which Nissan tires did she choose? After discussing options with her, she chose the BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour for its combination of treadwear, wet and snow traction, quiet ride and reasonable price. 

I had the opportunity to drive on a set of these tires for a couple of days and must agree with the positive customer feedback and survey data that praises this tire. The ride was indeed smooth and quiet and had good snow traction during the 10-mile commute on snow-covered county roads. Here's what a few customers had to say about their experience with the BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour:

"Living in the buckle of the snowbelt in Upstate NY, I researched carefully for tires to replace my OEM's and I have not been disappointed. The Long Trails perform magnificently in serious ice and snow conditions, rarely losing their grip - much superior to the Bridgestones they replaced. They are also quieter on the highway. After 17,000 miles, I detect almost no tread wear. And the warranty can hardly be beat. Outstanding value for the price." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2006 Nissan Murano

"I am buying another set tomorrow! Tires have worn well, been quiet to drive on and mileage improved. Drives like butter! You will love them -- I am a Michelin man, but these were great since none were available last time." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2007 Hummer H3

"Long Trail Tour proved to give much better results and handling than the original tires I had." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2008 Nissan Armada
