50k miles, is it time for new tires?



Stock tires, traveled 50k miles and one rotation around 30k. What is everyone's opinions? I don't like the cracks, is it something I should be concerned with? I want to wait until December to throw on the other wheels and and tires.

I'd replace them now, those cracks can be dangerous.

I got some altima wheels with snow tires going on. They are used tires but better then what's on there now. I might switch over this weekend. YAY for the TPMS light being on for the next few months!

Sounds good, I was about to ask about the Altima wheels. Are they 15s? And I hear ya about the TPMS light, mine has been on since I got the SLs.

Yeah they are 15" 5 stars from an altima SE. Just hope they clear the front caliper. Guy I know tried 15" infiniti g20 wheels and they didn't clear. The offset is different on the alt wheels though. Praying it's enough.

Good luck brother. They look pretty good though, I've always liked the style because they look like Rotas.

I have stretched the tires to 77k miles. There is no way they will see any snow action though. They are done. The front has about 2-3/32 and the rear about 3-4/32. The cracks haven't really gotten any worse. But there is a foreign object in my tire that is causing a really slow leak.



Seems the two tires that are good on the wheels are discontinued. So I am going to grab two yokohama's from a local tire rack warehouse that I just found out existed. I will test fit the 195/65/15 on the front of the car this week. I would have done it last weekend but I was busy painting the wheels .

Glad to see progress man. I saw those on a G20 at work the other day but I was working so I couldn't take a pic, looked good though...gold G20 with somewhat polished Altima alloys. What color did you paint them?

I used rustoleum engine enamel. I think the color is called "aluminum" or something like that. It's a shade between a stock silver and a gunmetal kinda color.

Sounds good. I've thought about painting my SL Alloys a similar color but I don't know yet. I'd like some 240, G20, or Altima alloys to play with. When are you getting the new tires?
