Best Tires for a Nissan Maxima

The Nissan Maxima has been the flagship sedan for the Japanese automaker for many years. With its good looks, powerful drivetrain and dependability, the Maxima is very popular for good reasons.

If you're looking to improve the vehicle's ride quality, take a look at the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus. This is an exceptional Grand Touring All-Season tire. It offers a very smooth, quiet and comfortable ride to go along with great all-season traction. Compared to its predecessor, the tire offers longer wear, greater snow traction and lower rolling resistance, which contributes to better vehicle fuel economy.

Do you want better handling or more of a performance tire? Then the Continental ExtremeContact DWS may be the right choice for your Maxima. This Ultra High Performance All-Season tire is one of our best sellers. It provides excellent handling and responsiveness to go along with top-rated all-season traction. Currently, the ExtremeContact DWS is ranked number one in its category.

Are you on a tight budget, but still want a good tire? The Kumho Ecsta 4X is an affordably priced Ultra High Performance All-Season tire that lets you forget about the weather forecast. While it's a sportier tire, it offers responsive handling, capable cornering and year-round traction to go in dry, wet and wintry conditions, even in light snow.

I seem to go through tires quickly on my 2005 Nissan Maxima SL, and looking tires that are not going to cost me an arm and a leg as I am on somewhat of a tight budget. I do live in New England and will need something that will get me through the snow as well.

Lisa, Assuming you are running the stock size 225/55R17, I would recommend taking a look at the Continental True Contact. The True Contact is in the middle of the price range with some of the best winter traction available in an all season tire, as well as very good longevity:
