Follow-Up Review: 18,000 miles on tires

I have driven quite a few miles on this tire now and am definitely satisfied with the wear and performance characteristics of these tires and overall would say I am pleased with my purchase. They are well above average in every category and I would recommend them to anyone with a 2009 or newer Nissan Murano (even the Infiniti FX-35) if you are looking to replace your tires. In my opinion Nissan should have put this size (265/50-20) on at the factory versus the OEM size of 235/55-20, which were somewhat narrower with a less imposing footprint. On certain days after work I follow another person home who drives the same vehicle as I do and I can see they still have the OEM size on their ride and it makes me feel good all over knowing I made the right choice by going with a plus size fitment for my vehicle. Now all I need to do is upgrade the struts and shocks as the ones from the factory are too soft for my liking. Can anyone say Koni or Bilstein?!?

I have had this tire for a couple of months now and am very satisfied with my purchase. When compared to the Toyo's that came on the vehicle from the factory, it's like night and day. For those who own the 2009 or 2010 Nissan Murano LE and have been struggling with what size to buy once the OEM tires are shot, look no further as this is the size to get and you will not be disappointed. After purchasing these I saw an FX35 in a parking lot, so I looked at the tires and saw the same size. I realized that Nissan should have put the 265/50/20s on the Murano LE versus the 235/55/20 as there are very few option in that latter size. The profile of this tire looks much better from all angles and fills the wheel well very nicely compared to the OEM size. All I can say is I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I'm not sure how they perform on snow and ice yet, but I presume they'll be comparable to what one would expect from an all season model.
