Living in Iowa, your problem will not be just traction but also the clearance space of the car in the winter. I also live in Iowa and would never attempt to drive mine in the winter unless I wanted to assist the snow plows.
#37 of 45 2005 Z's still have tire alignment issues
Feb 10, 2010 (7:26 pm)
I bought a new 2005 350z that has required me to purchase new tires (and alignment) every year, due to the Feathering. My tires become bald, I lose tire pressure constantly. . .in other words it's been a pain in the butt car. The dealership won't do anything, Nissan refused to admit there was any engineering issues with 2005, said that the 2003-2004 years had the TSB fix, and the 2005 had no issues. I hate this car, and it is extremely unsafe. I will not drive it anymore. I called Nissan after the replacement of tires 3 times (required by Lemmon Law) to give them one more chance to do the right thing, I will post after I speak with the Consumer Affairs Specialist tomorrow. If they still refuse, I will be getting a Lawyer. I'll let you all know.
I would talk anyone out of purchasing a Z, or a Nissan in general. Bad Car, bad customer service
#38 of 45 Lemmon Law time

Well, I got a call from the Nissan Consumer Affairs Specialist, and she claims the paperwork required us to take the Z into a body shop to fix the camber?? There was no discussion of that. And another question would be WHY would I have to take the car to a body shop? I understand (correct me if I'm wrong) that the camber cannot be adjusted on the 2005 350Z. Smells like an engineering defect to me?? Anyone else?
So I will be calling a lawyer under the Lemmon Law. Anyone out there with a 2005 having Tire wearing issues?

Yes. I have a 2005 Touring Roadster. I love it, but have very low miles (this is basically a summer-only car), and had to replace the front tires at around 15,000 miles or a bit less. Very disappointed in that.
Other than the tires wearing out too quickly though, I love it.

I used to love mine, but it is a lemon that I hate. I think since your roadster is a "summer car" it might take a little longer time wise (but not miles wise) to see if you will have the same problems. Good Luck

I have 2006 conv. 350 Z., and promise you that they still have not fixed the problem. Nissan also will not admit that they have a problem with the Z. They also have problems with maxima transmission 2006. I just paid 3000 $ to replace it and Nissan would not help at all. I DICOURAGE EVERYONE FROM EVER BUYING A NISSAN. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHERONE. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually there is a CLASS ACTION SUIT against Nissan for 350Z tire feathering, tire roar, suspension and alignment defects for 2003, 2004, and 2005. They say that they fixed it in 2006, but i am here to tell diff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I own a 2003 350Z. SB was issued for tire and alignment issue. It were (all 350s were) shipped from the factory with wheels out of alignment. Waranty re-aligned all 4 wheels. Had to throw the tires away and start over. I ONLY run Michelin pilot sports on factory 18" rims with no problems since. OEM tires (Potenza) were terrible. Wore (cupped) horribally, noisy, etc. Never buy Potenzas again.
