Tire Recommendations

My 2014 SV needs new tires. Anyone have any recommendations on good all season tires to replace the OEM tires? Thanks

Lots of good tires for max all season. I am on my second set of Cooper Zeon RS3 tires, now they are RS3 G1. They're quiet and handle well, also good in the rain.

Can't go wrong with Goodyear Eagle Sport all season in 'W' speed rating. I just put on a set and have been totally impressed with snow handling, deep water handling with NO hydroplaning, and phenomenal dry handling.

I ended up going with the Eagle Sport tires. Very happy with them so far. They are much better than the RSA's that the Maxima came with. Thanks for the recommendation.

Yep, nearly impossible to beat the Eagle Sport tires. I have very high expectations for the tires on my cars and trucks and for sports sedans...yeah, Eagles are awesome.

Are they superior to Yokohoma Sports Advan A/S? In the market for new tires.

"On paper", I'd say so. Without having direct experience with the Yokohoma (a very good tire, too), I can't personally compare. All I know is I've driven about 3,500 miles now on them, through rain and sleet and snow and dark of night, and have been nothing but impressed. The wet traction is phenomenal...absolutely NO hydro-planing even at 80+ MPH in heavy rain. Ran through 4" of snow (a 'blizzard' here!) with zero issues, passed a lot of other cars struggling along. And I can't say enough about the dry weather road-holding.
I drive my Max uh...very spiritedly, lol...and these tires are up to the task every time.

You've defifintly got me interested in the Goodyear, though RSAs crap on the car currently left a bad taste for me about Goodyear

You used the Advan A/S sport? My local Nissan dealer has good offer on them currently.
