I got these Pirelli tires at Sam’s Club for $276 with install on my Nissan Versa 2014

Pirelli P4 Four Season Plus - P195/65R15 91T Tire http://www.samsclub.com/sams/a/prod15120205.ip

Note they are one size larger oversized and the tread 😁 is way more than the Goodyear Fuelmax. they did not have these tires in the factory size so I went bigger to get the deal.

These oversized tires will have more rolling resistance correct? I’m Ok with that.

You are correct. Might cost you an almost unnoticeable dip in gas mileage. These are softer rubber tires and will probably wear somewhat faster than your previous ones.....but should hold the road better and be more fun in hard corners.

I too plan on going up a size when I replace them on my car. Ive done that on all my vehicles and it makes the handling better with little to no effect in mpg.

It will help me not peel out as much on my 5 speed when I’m up a steep hill.

I will manually track my gas mileage and report back. The size of the tire may throw off the calculations the computer makes in the car and not show the true gas mileage change.

My speedometer is accurate now 🤨

Getting 33 mpg which is on the low end of normal.

What psi are you using? Tire or door jam psi? Have you traveled a thousand miles on them yet? Its my xperience it takes a thousand to break them in. You said your speed is now accurate. Are you calculating the mpg off the tire size or the dash readout?

40 psi this last trip. I’m calculating mpg manually miles per tank divided by the number of gallons of gas to refill. I did not account for the tire size.
