One of Nissan’s top sellers the Rogue often flies under the radar of awards, but not of new car buyers. As owners of cars continue to migrate towards crossovers, numerous former Sentra and Altima buyers are now looking at Nissan’s compact crossover to fulfill their utility vehicle needs.
Below we’ve laid out a list of the best Nissan Rogue tires in several different segments.
Nissan Rogue Tire Size
To help you select the right tire, we’ve detailed each Nissan Rogue trim and the tire sizes available for each trim level from the factory.
- Nissan Rogue S 225/65/16
- Nissan Rogue SL 225/55/19
- Nissan Rogue SV 225/65/17 or 225/60/18
Best Nissan Rogue Tire
Bridgestone Ecopia HL 422 Plus
Fitted to many Rogue models from the factory, the Bridgestone Ecopia HL422 Plus offers solid driving dynamics, fantastic ride quality and is also equipped with the latest low rolling resistance technology. This means it will help you save fuel. Plus, it will do so for a long time with a 70,000 mile warranty.
Overall winter grip in the wet is quite good and winter grip is adequate (which is the most we’ll say for pretty much any all-season tire).
It’s on the pricier side, but it’s definitely worth it. It’s also available as a run-flat if you prefer.
Best Nissan Rogue All-Season Tire
Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady
While almost all of the tires on this list are all-seasons in the traditional sense, the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady is a true tire for all-seasons. By that we mean that it’s certified for true winter use and wears the three-peak mountain snowflake logo on its sidewall.
In addition, these Goodyears also offer great dry traction and decent wet traction too. Under cornering or braking loads the tread blocks actually lock together offering a larger contact patch with the road, which gives the tire more grip and stability.
In the wet, large swoops between the tread blocks help push away water.
As a result of its winter capability, overall tire life is diminished somewhat and Goodyear only warranties the tire for 60,000 miles. Plus, it costs a premium. This could be worth it for you, especially to deliver winter safety without having to think about switching tires.
Longest Lasting Nissan Rogue Tire
Goodyear Assurance MaxLife
There’s just no topping the aptly named Goodyear Assurance MaxLife. With an 85,000 mile tread life warranty it’s the most of any tire option you can get for the Rogue.
Designed specifically to best rival tires, we should point out that it’s only 5,000 miles more than a few of the other top choices from Continental and Michelin.
There are few drawbacks for this tire, however, with solid quietness and performance, although some users do complain the harder tread compound makes for a slightly stiffer ride.
Best Off-Road Tire for Nissan Rogue
Falken Wildpeak AT Trail
If you do intent on driving your Rogue off-road more than a few times then we have an ideal tire for you. One of the newest all-terrain tire offerings on the market, the Falken Wildpeak AT Trail isn’t as capable off-road as most of its rivals, and it doesn’t try to be either. Instead, it’s designed more for dirt trails and gravel roads, tackling them with confidence, while not letting these harsher surfaces eat up the tread compound.
Not only do you get true off-road capability with this tire, but you also get an amazing 65,000 mile tread life warranty.
All that and it’s more responsive, composed and quiet on-road than a typical all-terrain tire too.
Best Budget Tire for Nissan Rogue
Kumho Crugen HP71
Designed specifically to meet the needs of modern truck, SUV and crossovers drivers, the Kumho Crugen HP71 delivers a versatile package at an affordable price. With above-average handling and braking performance it also delivers a premium highway ride. With a 65,000 mile tread life warranty, that’s less than some of the top options on this list, but at a much lower price point.
Cheapest Tire for Nissan Rogue
Milestar Patagonia HT
Milestar’s Patagonia HT highway terrain tire isn’t quite as impressive as some others, but it’s also incredibly affordable. A newer brand on the scene, Milestar is starting to make a name for itself as a brand that out-performs its budget pricing.
This highway terrain tire is designed to deliver a premium highway ride with some mild off-road capability. And as a part of Milestar’s Patagonia lineup it’s built for the heavier loads and demands of SUVs.
Overall performance is average in terms of handling and braking, while the 60,000 mile tread life warranty is surprisingly good for the price.
Best Winter Tire for Nissan Rogue
Bridgestone Blizzak DMV2
Blizzak is synonymous with winter. If you’re looking for performance and safety in snowy climates its hard to beat the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV2.
The ultra-wide center tread section delivers excellent stability on snow, while the massive amount of siping helps provide superior grip.
On top of all this, these tires are quite affordably priced for what you get, making them an easy go-to option for our Rogue.
Cheapest Winter Tire for Nissan Rogue
Yokohama IceGuard G075
If you’re looking to save few dollars but still want a quality winter tire we recommend the Yokohama IceGuard G075. Sure, there re probably winter tires that are cheaper, so this is really the cheapest tire from a quality brand. It doesn’t quite offer the grip or handling capability on snow-paced roads of the Blizzaks above, but it’s very good on icy roads or just in colder temperatures. Well-priced, it’s a smart choice.
