I am starting to look for tires for my Wife's 2012 Nissan Rogue AWD, it has approx 20,000 miles and the factory Continental 4x4 Contact tires are evenly work to 5/32. I have not been impressed with the Continental, its a 300 treadwear tire and seems a little soft. I came across the Nitto 421Q tire on the Discount Tire site and they are rated at 80,000 miles and are a great price. I dont know much about Nitto tires, The Nitto website states the tires are designed for CUV's. Does anyone have experience with this tire? Any positives or negatives would be appreciated. Prior to seeing these I was planning to go with Michelin Defender tires since I have been extremely happy with them on my Caravan.

I don't know anyting about that particular model, but we have Nitto Motivos (UHP/AS) on our 2010 Mazda 6 and really like them. They seem to be wearing very well (60k warranty) and changed the handling characteristics of the car all for the better.

My bad blush

The Size/Trim level would be really useful tho.
There's so many possible combinations, It's a shot in the dark w/o it

Nitto is (or was) connected to Toyo. I don't know if Toyo makes the Nitto-labeled tires.
