Michelin Primacy MXV4, I have 15k miles on them and they are great in all kinds of weather. I live in the upper mid-west and drive through a lot of snow and rain. Quiet, no flat spots, handle great in all types of weather and on all surfaces. $1100 at the Infiniti dealer, including alignment and 2 year road hazard warranty. I could have saved a $100 bucks at the tire store but I wasnt comfortable with their ability to deal with any TPMS problems that might occur, even the dealer had a problem with one wheel.
Good luck. Mine is a 2006 M35X.

For anyone who cares, I have now had General Exclaim UHP tires of my M35 for 7 months and 9k miles. Wear and tear is minimal, handling in wet/dry is great and ride is very nice. For anyone looking for an amazing bargain, look no further. They are also the highest rated performance tires on Tire Rack.

I am a single mom who has driven the same car for over 12 years. I finally able to venture into the luxury car arena so I chose the 2007 Infiniti M35. I love everything about this car UNTIL its time to drive! The steering is awful at about 45 mph and I have to fight to stay in my own lane on the hwy. I never dreamt that a luxury car would be this much work! I'm afraid I may have made a mistake. Can anyone give me clue as to why the car performs this way?

Take the car back to the dealer...it may be that a steering part needs to be replaced (rack/pinion). The dealer may have to replace the tires.
This problem seems to be limited to the sports models with the larger wheels and flatter tires..

Thanks for your advice. I took it back yesterday and the dealership offered to buy new tires. Does anyone have a recommendation? I want tires that will keep the car on the road without me having to get a workout while trying to drive.

Thank you soooooo much! I decided on Yokohama Avid W4S tires. Does anyone have experience with that tire on a M35?

The dealer installed the Yokohama tires and I'm shocked at the difference they have made!! The ride is silky smooth and the noise is dramatically reduced. I'm not sure how the tires will perform in rain or snow, but I'll update once I've driven in those conditions. I am so happy that this worked out.
