#221 of 230 Goodyear RSA's Replaced with Michelin Primacy MXM4's
Apr 04, 2011 (6:19 pm)
As I previously posted, not long after taking delivery of my new 2010 M35X, I was so unhappy with the tremlining from the OEM Goodyear tires, the dealership replaced them with new Michelin MX4 Primacy. The difference was absolutely profound and I have enjoyed every mile driving my M35. I wasn't surprised to learn that Infiniti changed their tires to Michelin MX4 Primacy for their 2011 models.

#224 of 230 Replacing tires at the Lease End
Jun 29, 2011 (6:32 pm)
I'm leasing 2008 M35 with 22K currently. My lease ends in 4 months and my OEM tires have less than 5%. The lease agreement states that tires must have at least 1/8 tread left.
I hate the thought to replace tires when I only need 4 more months.
So here are the questions/options:
1. Buy used tires (may be $40-$50/per tire)
2. Leave as is: what Infinity usually charges at the end of the lease when tires have to be replaced?
3. Buy new tires (trade-in value is higher than my residual value, I might purchase the car and trade it in). How having new tires affects the trade-in value?
What do you, guys, think the best option is in this case?

Are your tires a safety concern? Auto forums often have high end used tires for sale. Maybe you can extend the lease for a year. They may give you a good deal. I had a 2006 M35X that was solid at 45,000 miles. The gas mileage was poor though. That may depress the used value and help you get a good deal.

I think they are a safety concern or will be very shortly, especially in wet weather. So as much as I don't want to spend money on tires, I'll have to buy either new or used ones. I can extend lease by no more than 3 months (called IFS to confirm), so I'm looking at 7 months at most.
I don't want to keep the car, the gas mileage is indeed very poor, considering I do mostly city driving as oppose to highway driving.
I haven't seen any ads on auto forums for tires, can you please point me to it?

I have had a set of Conti DWS on my 06 for 3+ years. Great tires, getting ready to put a new set on. Discount Tire has best prices so far, $184 each out the door.

I have a 2008 and I just replaced the set of Kumho Ecsta tires. I found a crazy deal $126.99 a tire. The tire is called Radar Verenti R6 - 100W BW - All Season Tire. The tire traction grade is AA, Treadwear Grade of 500, and more. The ride is quiet and smoove. So far I notice an improvement in gas mileage. When I compared to the Michelin Primacy the load index was 96 1565 lbs. when compared to 96 1565 lbs. When I compared the price, features, performance, and value it was a no brainer.
