Nissan Rogue Owners Manual: Changing wheels and tires

Changing wheels and tires

Tire rotation

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

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

As soon as possible, tighten the wheel nuts to the specified torque with a torque wrench.

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

The wheel nuts must be kept tightened to specifications at all times. It is recommended that wheel nuts be tightened to specification at each tire rotation interval.

  •  After rotating the tires, check and adjust the tire pressure.
  •  Retighten the wheel nuts when the vehicle has been driven for 600 miles (1,000 km) (also in cases of a flat tire, etc.).
  •  Do not include the spare tire in the tire rotation.
  •  For additional information regarding tires, refer to “Important Tire Safety Information” (US) or “Tire Safety Information” (Canada) in the Warranty Information Booklet.

Tire wear and damage

Tire wear and damage

  1.  Wear indicator
  2.  Location mark
  •  Tires should be periodically inspected for wear, cracking, bulging or objects caught in the tread.

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

  •  The original tires have built-in tread wear indicators. When the wear indicators are visible, the tire(s) should be replaced.
  •  Tires degrade with age and use.

    Have tires, including the spare, over 6 years old checked by a qualified technician because some tire damage may not be obvious.

    Replace the tires as necessary to prevent tire failure and possible personal injury.

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

    If it is necessary to repair the spare tire, contact a NISSAN dealer.

  •  For additional information regarding tires, refer to “Important Tire Safety Information” (US) or “Tire Safety Information” (Canada) in the Warranty Information Booklet.

Replacing wheels and tires

When replacing a tire, use the same size, tread design, speed rating and load carrying capacity as originally equipped. Recommended types and sizes are shown in “Wheels and tires” in the “Technical and consumer information” section of this manual.

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

    Some of these effects may lead to accidents and could result in serious personal injury.

  •  For 2WD models, if your vehicle was originally equipped with 4 tires that were the same size and you are only replacing 2 of the 4 tires, install the new tires on the rear axle. Placing new tires on the front axle may cause loss of vehicle control in some driving conditions and cause an accident and personal injury
  • If the wheels are changed for any reason, always replace with wheels which have the same off-set dimension.

    Wheels of a different off-set could cause premature tire wear, degrade vehicle handling characteristics, affect the VDC system and/or interference with the brake discs/drums. Such interference can lead to decreased braking efficiency and/or early brake pad/shoe wear. Refer to “Wheels and tires” in the “Technical and consumer information” section of this manual for wheel off-set dimensions.

  •  When a spare tire is mounted or a wheel is replaced, tire pressure will not be indicated, the TPMS will not function and the low tire pressure warning light will flash for approximately 1 minute.

    The light will remain on after 1 minute.

    Contact your NISSAN dealer as soon as possible for tire replacement and/or system resetting.

  •  Replacing tires with those not originally specified by NISSAN could affect the proper operation of the TPMS.
  •  Do not install a damaged or deformed wheel or tire even if it has been repaired.

    Such wheels or tires could have structural damage and could fail without warning.

  •  The use of retread tires is not recommended.
  •  For additional information regarding tires, refer to “Important Tire Safety Information” (US) or “Tire Safety Information” (Canada) in the Warranty Information Booklet.



Always use tires of the same type, size, brand, construction (bias, bias-belted or radial), and tread pattern on all four wheels. Failure to do so may result in a circumference difference between tires on the front and rear axles which will cause excessive tire wear and may damage the transmission, transfer case and differential gears (AWD models).

Wheel balance

Unbalanced wheels may affect vehicle handling and tire life. Even with regular use, wheels can get out of balance. Therefore, they should be balanced as required.

Wheel balance service should be performed with the wheels off the vehicle.

Spin balancing the wheels on the vehicle could lead to mechanical damage.
