Original Conti tires on 2012 sedan were worn at 34k but not close to bald yet. Decided to replace with Falken Sincera Touring Tires. 4 mounted balanced and on the car for $413. So far they seem great, smooth and quiet.

My stock contentials on my 13 versa S lasted 48,000. That's with rotation every 10-12k. They did really good for stockers. Started to lose grip at about 40k aka at the wear bars.

Tire mileage is one thing that could vary by quite a bit depending on driver's habits and patterns, Kinda goes along with fuel consumption and/or brake pads/rotors.

With all the available brands/options for tires nowadays, sometimes I feel changing to a different tire (unless you had first hand knowledge) becomes a crap shoot. This, sometimes makes me want to stick to the same OEM tire (assuming of course that I'm fairly satisfied with it). At least I know what to expect. Even with available online reviews and owners survey, opinions seem to vary and cover the whole spectrum of acceptability.

I broke this pattern with my Note as I did a +1 upgrade on my wheels and tires and decided on a non-OEM tire. So far I'm quite satisfied with my choice but mileage and durability remains to be seen. Fuel economy has suffered though.

I noticed in the 2015 Versa owners manual, (page 8-32) Nissan recommends rotating tires every 7500 miles. I also noticed when you check the Versa 2015 Service and Maintenance Guide, it recommends changing the oil and rotating tires every 5000 miles (exception 370 Z).
I hate when they do that! The traditional and standard is typically 7500 I think for the rotations. Regardless, even if you do that, from my experience tires coming on some new cars suck in general. I had purchased a 2012 Mazda 5 and the factory tires were shot at 30K with regular rotations. They just don't make them like they used to folks.

I have a 2012 Nissan Versa S with the Tires still on it from the Factory. The car currently has 51000 Miles on it just had the oil changed at NTB they said its almost time for new tires. So have to agree with every one else depends on what kind of driving. NTB has Epic brand tires its an economy tire but only about 47 dollars per tire currently have had a few on my merc sable they seemed to do really well. total all is going to be about 240 out the door

Agreed, I think the 14 Note is the same. I do rotations at 5K because I'm jacking it up anyway to do the oil.

When I went for my first oil change at 5,000 miles the mechanic told me I could easily wait until the next oil change to rotate my tires. Might be because I mostly drive on the highway.
