Our tires on our G37x Sport model got to the point where they are simply terrible. Lot of hydroplaning at 20,0000 miles. Stock tires are Dunlop Sport Maxx. The size I have on all four is 225 / 50 / 18
I considered the following:
Continental Extreme Contact DWS
Nitto Motivo (totally new)
BF Goodrich (can't remember the model, but was a Grand Touring all-season VS: high performance all season)
BF's seemed to be a good price point option. This car is my wife's daily driver, and she is an enthusiast by female standards. She loves a car that sticks to the road while driving fast. She is a tough critic when it comes to tires.
Make a long story short, I got a sweet deal on the new Nitto Motivo tires that I could not pass up, and it was locally. I ordered them, picked them up, and had them installed by my Nissan dealer. I had them installed yesterday and my wife LOVES them!
- no steering wheel shake (Dunlops shook from day one, we had alignment checked twice at Infiniti dealer)
- nice and quiet
- super smooth!
- sticks to the road well, even flying around corner it is like a smoother roller coaster on rails
- 60,000 mile tread warranty
- made in the USA
- should handle well in wet rain and snow
LET ME KNOW IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUESTIONS! These tires just became available in this size, but they are sooooooo worth the wait!
