#75 of 123 changing size of tire to 235/60/16
Dec 20, 2006 (9:07 pm)
On my 04 Nissan Quest SL, I replaced the crappy Badyear tires with 235/60/16 Toyo Proxes TPT tires in March. These are actually directional performance tires but they drive great. I use to have vibration at 70-80mph, but the new tires eliminated most of it. The OEM tires got replaced at 28k and that's another reason why I would never use those Badyear tires again.

#79 of 123 225-65-16 Tires For 2004+ Quest

I was perusing Tirerack.com and noticed that the special 225-65-16 tires are now available in a few other brands; Michelin, Yokahama, and General.
#80 of 123 Tire Pressure Sensors
Jul 06, 2007 (6:42 pm)
I picked up a pair of nice '06 rims with tires from a junkyard, to run in my '04. The newer rims have the tire valve pressure sensors, but don't register pressure on the computer of my '04? Any ideas? Do the sensors need to be calibrated by the dealer or something like that?

Wish I could help. I am pretty sure that some programming is necessary so you are not reading the tire pressure on the Nissan next to you at the traffic light. I picked up a key fob on Ebay for my 04 Quest and the procedure to program it was pretty wierd but it worked. I bought wheels (non Quest) that fit the hubs to mount snows on and just went "Sensor Free". It just reads * * * * for the pressures. No alarms, warnings, or anything, just no readings. I seldom look at presures unless one beeps so it was fine for me anyway.

I called a dealer and the service rep said that he thought the sensors should work automatically, but also thought that the mechanics have a calibrating tool of some sort.
With these two tires/rims I also bought a pair of bare steel rims with sensors, from the same '06 Quest. I have a set of 235-60-16 Blizzaks coming from TireRack.com, they're running a clearance on them right now for $82 each. As I'm sure most '04+ Quest owners from wintery climates know, the original Goodyears are horrible in slippery conditions. We have a sloped driveway, and the van is worthless climbing the driveway with the traction control on. Turn the traction control off and it barely makes it while spinning like crazy.

Any tire shop should have no trouble hooking up the sensors to the new rims. They change tires and rims everyday.
The OEM Goodyears have a quiet ride but that is about it. I think any aftermarket tire will be better in the snow. If you get a lot of snow, the Blizzaks will do you well. Smart move.

dtownfb, I wasn't clear in explaining that I have two sets of rims with sensors all installed; my original '04 set and a "newer" set of '06 rims aquired at a junkyard. The issue is that fact that the '06 sensors need to be calibrated to work with the computer and read out the pressures on my '04 van. Hopefully the dealer or someone can easily fix this. The tire pressure readout is a convenient feature on this van, and I've grown spoiled using it. It saved me once already, detecting a slow leak that we had on one tire due to a nail we were carrying around in the tread.
