Yeah! Those are sweet... I'm just trying to imaging how they might look on the RogueImStricken wrote:id love to see some beefy off-road type of tires on a rogue already.
Probably go with the Michelin Primacy MXV4.Katnip wrote:I've scanned over these posts and I don't see anything about the tires I am looking at for my 2011 SL AWD Rogue. My Rogue, brand new, came with the Dunlop Sport 7000 and they started feathering at 30,000. Kept putting off getting new tires since they had some tread left, but now I'm at a little over 50,000 and need four new tires before winter. I have always been partial to Michelin since I've had very good luck with them with my Chevy Blazer but last year when doing some research saw there were no Michelin's for my Rogue. Now, there are two available and I'm actually looking at three tires: Michelin Primacy MXV4, Hankook Optima H727, and the one I'm leaning most toward getting, the Michelin Defender which is green X. I have spent most of my day researching sites, especially the TireRack, but cannot find a specific "best tires for the Rogue" review. Can anyone give me any insight before I buy four new tires?
I couldn't tell you what the real stock or OEM tire was, I purchased her as a pre-owned from a dealer, so who knows if they were even the real stock tires that came with her in 09. I do know they were continental's, and they were not good. The size I mentioned were the stock size, that I had changed to a plus zero.[*]Rogue One wrote:Dunno anything about Toyo's. What did you have for stock?
I've got Dunlop SP Sport 7000T A/S High Performance All-Season. These came as stock on my 2012. Don't seem that sure-footed, and they transfer a lot of road noise. It's gonna feel like an eternity before I can replace them.
Hard to say. Just checked TireBuyer.com and they say it's not a match for your ride: http://www.tirebuyer.com/products/56249 ... ilter=truedarylzero wrote:Well I need new tires very soon and have been looking for awhile now. It's so hard to choose a tire. Looking on Tirerack.com it lists theFirestone Destination LE2 as compatible with the Rogue, but on Firestone.com it only list 3 tires as compatible with the 2009 Rogue. So is Tirerack.com wrong?
I talked to Tirerack.com and they said most likely Firestone doesn't list them because they are a T rated tire which means the top speed for that tire is 118mph. While the Rogue came with H rated tires so Firestone is just sticking to the OEM specs.Rogue One wrote:Hard to say.

Over at OnLineTires.com they indicate that you can put on the Firestone Destination LE 2 99H, BUT the size is 235/55-18. http://www.onlinetires.com/products/veh ... 2+99h.html
A softer tire is going to have more of a squishy feel, particularly when cornering at high speeds, but may grip the pavement better in wet or icy conditions. Put more air in them to harden them up. Avoid potholes and be extra cautious in bad weather, since the extra stiffness is going to reduce traction slightly. Do not exceed the maximum pressure listed on the side wall of the tire. The higher you go above Nissan's recommended PSI (on the doorjam plate), the more important it is to keep the same exact pressure in all four tires.darylzero wrote: The guy was telling me that with the T rated tire the corning may feel a little "mushy" not as precise as with the H rated tire because the H rated will have a little stronger side wall.
On the way back though my MPG went way down so we will see. It does have a 30 Day Buy & Try Guarantee so if the MPG continues to suck I would have to return them.
The max psi of 55 is just that the max the tire can withstand. You would still fill those to 33 psi.Rogue One wrote:OK, I had wondered if there's a problem with my tire sensor system, and now I'm sure. I've own this vehicle for 54 weeks, and today when I fired up the engine, the TPMS warning showed on the dash. Naturally when I look for my tire gauge it's no where to be found, so I have to buy a new one. Anyway, the gauge says all 4 tires have between 26 and 26.5 psi.
They're Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S and the tire wall recommends a max psi of 55, while the door jam sticker recommends a max psi of 33. To add insult to injury, the tires are nitrogen filled, and almost no one in this backwater hick town deals with filling nitrogen tires.
