Nissan Rogue Owners Manual: Types of tires

WARNING
  •  When changing or replacing tires, be sure all four tires are of the same type (i.e., Summer, All Season or Snow) and construction. A NISSAN dealer may be able to help you with information about tire type, size, speed rating and availability.
  •  Replacement tires may have a lower speed rating than the factory equipped tires, and may not match the potential maximum vehicle speed. Never exceed the maximum speed rating of the tire.
  •  Replacing tires with those not originally specified by NISSAN could affect the proper operation of the low tire pressure warning system.
  •  For additional information regarding tires, refer to “Important Tire Safety Information” (US) or “Tire Safety Information” (Canada) in the Warranty Information Booklet.

All-Wheel Drive (AWD) models

CAUTION
  •  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.
  •  ONLY use spare tires specified for the AWD model.

If excessive tire wear is found, it is recommended that all four tires be replaced with tires of the same size, brand, construction and tread pattern.

The tire pressure and wheel alignment should also be checked and corrected as necessary.

Contact a NISSAN dealer.

All season tires

NISSAN specifies All Season tires on some models to provide good performance all year, including snowy and icy road conditions. All Season tires are identified by ALL SEASON and/or M&S on the tire sidewall. Snow tires have better snow traction than All Season tires and may be more appropriate in some areas.

Summer tires

NISSAN specifies summer tires on some models to provide superior performance on dry roads.

Summer tire performance is substantially reduced in snow and ice. Summer tires do not have the tire traction rating “M&S” on the tire sidewall.

If you plan to operate your vehicle in snowy or icy conditions, NISSAN recommends the use of SNOW tires or ALL SEASON tires on all four wheels.

Snow tires

If snow tires are needed, it is necessary to select tires equivalent in size and load rating to the original equipment tires. If you do not, it can adversely affect the safety and handling of your vehicle.

Generally, snow tires have lower speed ratings than factory equipped tires and may not match the potential maximum vehicle speed. Never exceed the maximum speed rating of the tire.

If you install snow tires, they must be the same size, brand, construction and tread pattern on all four wheels.

For additional traction on icy roads, studded tires may be used. However, some U.S. states and Canadian provinces prohibit their use. Check local, state and provincial laws before installing studded tires. Skid and traction capabilities of studded snow tires on wet or dry surfaces may be poorer than that of non-studded snow tires.

Run–Flat Tires (if so equipped)

Your vehicle is equipped with run-flat tires and is not equipped with a spare tire, or a jack and tool kit. The jack and tool kit may be purchased at the dealer. Please consult your NISSAN dealer for additional details. You can continue driving to a safe location even if the run-flat tires are punctured.

Always use run-flat tires of the specified size on all four wheels. Mixing tire sizes or construction may reduce vehicle handling stability. If necessary, contact your NISSAN dealer for assistance.

Frequently check the tire pressure and adjust pressure of each tire properly. The tire pressure can be also checked in the vehicle information display.

It can be difficult to tell if a run-flat tire is underinflated or flat. Check the tire pressures as described in this section. If the tire becomes underinflated while driving, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate and the “Tire Pressure Low- Add Air” warning appears in the vehicle information display. If the tire becomes flat while driving, the low tire pressure warning light and the “Flat-Tire-Visit Dealer warning will appear.

Low tire pressure:

If the vehicle is being driven with low tire pressure, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate and the “Tire Pressure Low- Add Air” warning appears in the vehicle information display.

Flat tire:

If the vehicle is being driven with one or more flat tires, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate continuously and a chime will sound for 10 seconds. A “Flat-Tire-Visit Dealer warning also appears in the vehicle information display.

The chime will only sound at the first indication of a flat tire and the warning light will illuminate continuously. When the flat tire warning is activated, have the system reset and the tire checked and replaced if necessary by your NISSAN dealer. Even if the tire is inflated to the specified COLD tire pressure, the warning light will continue to illuminate until the system is reset by your NISSAN dealer.

If the low tire pressure warning light illuminates continuously and the “Flat-Tire-Visit Dealer warning appears in the vehicle information display:

WARNING
  •  Although you can continue driving with a punctured run-flat tire, remember that vehicle handling stability is reduced, which could lead to an accident and personal injury. Also, driving a long distance at high speeds may damage the tire.
  •  Do not drive at speeds above 50 MPH (80 km/h) and do not drive more than approximately 93 miles (150 km) with a punctured run-flat tire. The actual distance the vehicle can be driven on a flat tire depends on outside temperature, vehicle load, read conditions and other factors.
  •  Drive safely at reduced speeds. Avoid hard cornering or braking, which may cause you to lose control of the vehicle.
  •  If you detect any unusual sounds or vibrations while driving with a punctured run-flat tire, pull off the road to a safe location and stop the vehicle as soon as possible. The tire may be seriously damaged and need to be replaced

 

CAUTION
  •  Never install tire chains on a punctured run-flat tire, as this could damage your vehicle.
  •  Avoid driving over any projection or pothole, as the clearance between the vehicle and the ground is smaller than normal.
  •  Do not enter an automated car wash with a punctured run-flat tire.
  •  Have the punctured tire inspected by a NISSAN dealer or other authorized repair shop. Replace the tire as soon as possible if the tire is seriously damaged.
  •  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).
  •  ONLY use spare tires specified for the AWD model.
  •  If excessive tire wear is found, it is recommended that all four tires be replaced with tires of the same size, brand, construction and tread pattern.

    The tire pressure and wheel alignment should also be checked and corrected as necessary. Contact a NISSAN dealer
