Oct 07, 2008 (6:10 pm)

THEN WHEN I BROUGHT TO TIRE SHOP FOR RE ALLIGMENT THE TECHNICIAN SAID MY TIRE HAS A LOW PRESSURE THAT CAUSE THE DAMAGED AND IT SHOULD BE 40PSI. BYTHEWAY MY OLD TIRE HAS A MAX OF 45PSI. BUT WHEN I ASKED THE DEALER THEY SAY THE RIGHT INFLATION IS 32PSI SO WHERE'S THE 26PSI THAT IT INDICATES ON MY PLACARD OF MY CARD FOR THE RIGHT INFLATION. PLEASE HELP ME.
#25 of 40 Studded Snow Tires
Nov 30, 2008 (3:33 pm)
My son has a 1995 Pathfinder.
In addition to the more or less stock tires he also has 4 studded snow tires (in my garage) which he has no need for.
He want's to trade/sell the regular tires and the snow tires (rims and all) for oversized rims and tires.
I won't go into the merits of what he wants to do, that's his thing. I am interested in getting the snow tires out of my garage as quickly as possible. He has agreed to let me post them on Craigs list.
The tires are radial WINTER KING P235/75R15 108Q M+S. The rims are (factory) painted white enamel with a red and blue pen stripe around the circumference. I don't think either the rims or the tires have been used much. The rims are in very good to excellent condition and the tires have excellent tread and, as far as I can tell, no missing studs.
Is $350 a fair asking price?
#26 of 40 Spare Tire Lock?
Dec 12, 2008 (5:08 pm)
I see several other folks have also had their spare tire stolen. Anyone have any advice as to how to prevent this? Have called a couple dealers and they have not been much help. I have an '08 Pathfinder S. Thanks.

How about a cable type bike lock?

#28 of 40 spare tire lock
Dec 14, 2008 (12:38 am)
the spare tire can be stolen in 2 seconds with a flat head screw driver....the U clip can be broken in 2 seconds. the perfect lock is the metal cable type because when you lock it its visible to possible thiefs. also place some duck tape where you place the key to keep dust and dirt.

Many thanks for the tips - am going to use a rubber-coated steel cable with a weather-resistant Master lock. I'll let everyone know how this works out....

2007 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4x4 (Although never used as 4x4) located in South Fl. I have previously reported many problems with this truck.
Latest, I just took truck to dealer "Coral Springs Nissan" from hell, 30,000 mile service, and actual miles 29,500 mile. I ask them to rotate the tires, they say really not enough tread, three tires have at least 4mm, 1 has 3mm. I know why odd, when I constantly had tires rotated. This truck had the classic problem of, every time he hit a twig or bump, the front wheels shook, I told them several times. Eventually 22,500 miles they found tracking had a problem & needed an extended bolt. They now tell me need new set of tires. 29,500 "Need new tires", outrageous. Should get 50k on tires. Anyway, I pay & insist on rotate tires, they sell me another balance deal. Oil & Rotate $95.
Surely tires should do better then 29,500 miles.
I also tell them rear trunk lid, needs new struts, does not fully open, so constantly hit head. Service writer from hell says "no it’s fine". I refuse to deal with this writer, they get me another one. End of day, they oil struts, "See if that works, if not we will see about replacing”
Is Coral Springs Nissan a bad dealer or is it an institution Nissan thing. Try to never fix the problems.
Of course I still have the Tranny problem, rattles in doors, front windows that don't open properly, noisy wipers, tinny woofer.

Been running 275/55/17 on 2000 Pathfinder SE4x4 since 2000. No rubbing issues at all. They are Dunlop TG35 which are unfortunately not made any more. Fabulous tire.
#32 of 40 Survey: Replacement Tires for 2001 LE
Jan 06, 2009 (6:48 pm)
Interested in hearing opinions on replacement tires that the folks here have. The Michelins LTXs M&S have 50k on them, some tread left but replacements will be needed soon. Rotated & balanced every 5k. Elsewhere on this forum I disclosed the horror of a tread separation (Michelin called it a 'driver-error" Run Flat situation, Ha). Aside from that faulty tire which was replaced without question by COSTCO, they have been much better than the OEMs - Dunlops. Smoother, quieter ride - handled better than the Dunlops, But very $$$$.

2007 Path SE 4x4, but almost never use 4 wheel drive. Tires are BF goodrich, 1st one worn out at 30500 miles. Not impressed. Just bought new tire + put brand new, never used spare on back. Problem with new spare, has 4 deep indentations on outside of rubber. Dealer says, caused by sparewheel, clamp. UGH! never seen or heard of such a thing. Dealer says can't do anything aboout it. Only 16 months to go, before give back the lease. Whoopee.
