Nissan Rogue 2015 - Tire Size compatibility

Asked by Dec 23, 2015 at 05:56 PM about the 2015 Nissan Rogue

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have Nissan Rogue 2015 base version. All season tires come with size
225/65/R17. I am thinking to buy winter tires. Want to know if its okay to move
to 225/65/R16 size for winter tires? I have called up few dealers about this and
some say it should be fine till the time i use R16 for tire size but few dealers
were not sure.

Need some help :)

225/65-17 is a diameter of 28.52" --- 225/65-16 s a diameter of 27.52" total. A 3.5% difference. Not all that much. The smaller diameter 16" wheels/tires will lower you rear ratios slightly, decreasing speed at same at same rpm. Other words, you engine will be running faster to maintain 65 mph. Or any speed. Presented for what it is, Your call. But why not just get winter tires in 17's and not have to buy wheels? You can't put the 16" tires on 17" wheels

http://www.bridgestonetire.com/tread-and-trend/drivers-ed/winter-snow-tires-vs-all-season-tires -if I may, I suggest you read that article. I live where we get a moderate amount of snow, and just use all-season tires. The big problem is ice, where 'winter' tires are of no benefit. Matter of fact it looks like we are going to have a White Christmas, and AKGuptaI wish you a Merry Christmas to you and Yours, that you and your family are well and happy. ~~David

It is usually not a good idea to change tire diameter for a couple of reasons. A smaller size tire will require you to purchase 4 new wheels, steel or alloy. That will cost more than simply buying 17 inch winter tires, especially if you have alloy wheels. In addition, the smaller tires may affect the handling and ride and they will cause lower gas mileage. You will be much better off buying 17 inch tires.
