Tire rotation

NISSAN recommends rotating the tiresevery 7,500 miles (12,000 km).

Refer to “Flat tire” in the “In case of emergency”section in this manual for tire replacingprocedures.

As soon as possible, tighten thewheel nuts to the specified torquewith a torque wrench.

Wheel nut tightening torque:98 ft-lb (133 N·m)

The wheel nuts must be kept tightenedto specifications at all times. Itis recommended that wheel nuts betightened to specification at eachtire rotation interval.

  • After rotating the tires, check andadjust the tire pressure.
  • Retighten the wheel nuts whenthe vehicle has been driven for600 miles (1,000 km) (also incases of a flat tire, etc.).
  • Do not include the spare tire inthe tire rotation.
  • For additional information regardingtires, refer to “ImportantTire Safety Information” (US) or“Tire Safety Information”(Canada) in the Warranty InformationBooklet.

Tire wear and damage

  1. Wear indicator
  2. Location mark
  • Tires should be periodically inspectedfor wear, cracking, bulgingor objects caught in the tread.

    If excessive wear, cracks, bulgingor deep cuts are found, the tire(s)should be replaced.

  • The original tires have built-intread wear indicators. When thewear indicators are visible, thetire(s) should be replaced.
  • Tires degrade with age and use.

    Have tires, including the spare,over 6 years old checked by aqualified technician becausesome tire damage may not be obvious.

    Replace the tires as necessaryto prevent tire failure andpossible personal injury.

  • Improper service of the spare tiremay result in serious personal injury.

    If it is necessary to repair thespare tire, contact a NISSANdealer.

  • For additional information regardingtires, refer to “ImportantTire Safety Information” (US) or“Tire Safety Information”(Canada) in the Warranty InformationBooklet.

Replacing wheels and tires

When replacing a tire, use the same size, treaddesign, speed rating and load carrying capacityas originally equipped. Recommended types andsizes are shown in “Wheels and tires” in the“Technical and consumer information” section ofthis manual.

  • The use of tires other than those recommendedor the mixed use of tires ofdifferent brands, construction (bias,bias-belted or radial), or tread patternscan adversely affect the ride, braking,handling, VDC system, ground clearance,body-to-tire clearance, tire chainclearance, speedometer calibration,headlight aim and bumper height.

    Some of these effects may lead to accidentsand could result in serious personalinjury.

  • For 2WD models, if your vehicle wasoriginally equipped with 4 tires thatwere the same size and you are onlyreplacing 2 of the 4 tires, install the newtires on the rear axle. Placing new tireson the front axle may cause loss ofvehicle control in some driving conditionsand cause an accident and personalinjury
  • If the wheels are changed for any reason,always replace with wheels whichhave the same off-set dimension.

    Wheels of a different off-set couldcause premature tire wear, degrade vehiclehandling characteristics, affect theVDC system and/or interference withthe brake discs/drums. Such interferencecan lead to decreased braking efficiencyand/or early brake pad/shoewear. Refer to “Wheels and tires” in the“Technical and consumer information”section of this manual for wheel off-setdimensions.

  • When a spare tire is mounted or a wheelis replaced, tire pressure will not beindicated, the TPMS will not functionand the low tire pressure warning lightwill flash for approximately 1 minute.

    The light will remain on after 1 minute.

    Contact your NISSAN dealer as soon aspossible for tire replacement and/orsystem resetting.

  • Replacing tires with those not originallyspecified by NISSAN could affect theproper operation of the TPMS.
  • Do not install a damaged or deformedwheel or tire even if it has been repaired.

    Such wheels or tires could havestructural damage and could fail withoutwarning.

  • The use of retread tires is notrecommended.
  • For additional information regardingtires, refer to “Important Tire Safety Information”(US) or “Tire Safety Information”(Canada) in the Warranty InformationBooklet.

Always use tires of the same type, size,brand, construction (bias, bias-belted orradial), and tread pattern on all fourwheels. Failure to do so may result in acircumference difference between tires onthe front and rear axles which will causeexcessive tire wear and may damage thetransmission, transfer case and differentialgears (AWD models).

Wheel balance

Unbalanced wheels may affect vehicle handlingand tire life. Even with regular use, wheels can getout of balance. Therefore, they should be balancedas required.

Wheel balance service should be performedwith the wheels off the vehicle.

Spin balancing the wheels on the vehiclecould lead to mechanical damage.

  • For additional information regardingtires, refer to “Important Tire SafetyInformation” (US) or “Tire Safety Information”(Canada) in the Warranty InformationBooklet.

Care of wheels

  • Wash the wheels when washing the vehicleto maintain their appearance.
  • Clean the inner side of the wheels when thewheel is changed or the underside of thevehicle is washed.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners when washingthe wheels.
  • Inspect wheel rims regularly for dents orcorrosion. Such damage may cause loss ofpressure or poor seal at the tire bead.
  • NISSAN recommends waxing the roadwheels to protect against road salt in areaswhere it is used during winter.
