Replacement tires- need sugestions

Fri Mar 16, 2018 10:11 am

Our 2015 SV is in need of new tires after 44,000 miles on the original ones.
I tried searching around and have not found much. Any help would be great. We live in the northeast so need all-season tires that will work on snow.
Thanks

I just had Nokian WRG4s put on my 2018 SV, and they have been great so far. No noticeable change in efficiency or noise, and they work excellent in the snow.

I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Thanks for the snarky reply there. Don't you think that was the fist thing i tried?
Most of what I found was from a few years ago so I thought I would come here and get some more current advice.
How stupid of me to think that I might get some actually useful information.

I agree that Nubo should have just posted a topic link, but you have to understand that we have a big problem with people starting topics over and over for common questions. That makes it hard, ironically, for someone looking for info to find it here. Don't use the site search feature, always use Google.

Let me give a bit more clarifying information- My wife drive this car and her job is at the very end of how far she can drive round trip on a single charge- no, charging at work is not an option unfortunately.
When it is very cold she will drive my minivan because she wants to be able to actually have heat and not get frostbite on her commute to and from work.
We need tires that will not cost her anything in range and hopefully pick up a half a mile/kwh or so if possible.

In that case, your best choice is Bridgestone Ecopia. Since your car came with 17-inch Michelins, you can expect slightly better efficiency and significantly better wet traction with Ecopias provided you inflate them to 44 psi cold.

Agreed. The same questions often get asked over and over both here and on various Leaf FB groups I'm on. In at least 80% to 90% of the cases, the issue's already been discussed on MNL.

Many people don't know about the site: syntax (https://support.google.com/websearch/an ... 6433?hl=en) to limit searches which works on Google and Bing (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff795613.aspx). And, the two search engines let you limit time frame.

You don't even have to remember the extra syntax. I put this into Google, just as it appears below:

mynissanleaf.com best tires

And got these results:

True, but using the site: syntax limits it to that domain vs. possibly getting hits on other sites.
