Looking for new tires for my 2005 Pathfinder LE

Postby Noeliajara » Tue Nov 24, 2009 11:39 am

tire size is 265/65R17. Still have the original tires and have had no problems with it but they feel somewhat slippery now. Any recommendations as far as brands go?

I have a 08 Se with the 17" wheels. I changed it up to a 265/70r17 (32*10.50r17) BFGoodrich All Terrains. I'm very happy with my choice, the BFG measure out to a 32.25x11" so the size is a big jump. They just clear the wheels wells.

I swapped my General's for Michelin Cross Terrains the same week that I bought my '06 LE (same size tire as yours). They're probably of no use off road, but I don't go there anyhow. Very pleased with their on-raod performance.

i have nothing but good words for my yoko's geo AT-S.

i think if you do a search for "tires" on the site you will get a bunch of ideas...then just find which ones you either like best or can get cheapest (hopefully the answer is the same for both)

I just installed Michelin LTX M/S2s, on a new set of rims for the Pathfinder. The size is 265/65 R 17.

I threw some Goodyear Forterra TripleTreds on my '06 LE after 56k on my OEM Generals. Much, much better on dry, mildly slushy, wet, and very wet roads. No experience on snow or ice yet, but I had Assurance TripleTreds on an Accord a few years back (nearly identical tread pattern), and they were the best of the 4 types of tires I tried on that car in the snow by far.
