Affordable Tire Option for NV200

Ok, been looking, researching, this crazy tire problem that people are just now realizing is going to hurt their bottom line (a 20k mile OEM Expensive tire). I've looked at new wheels with higher load tires, dealer options for OEM tires (just the original one JKTyre where I am), and the only other C rated tire - Continental vanco 4 seasons. Well to replace the rims to 16s ($400) and use a tire that comes close to pressure you're looking at about $900 out the door. The OEM tires and continentals cost right about $625. NOT good if you put a lot of miles on your van.
Well I found out that Yokohama sells a 185/60/15 s series tire (avid) that has a max pressure of 51lbs. These run under $400 and have a 60k mile tread rating. Looks good to me! I dont carry a heavy load in my van, just light delivery items. Hope this helps someone.

Well I can't recommend that anyone run that light duty "Honda Civic" tire on a cargo van.

Read the specs of that tire again and you will see why. The max PSI rating of the tire is not nearly important as the load rating.


There are much better tire options for the stock 15 x 5.5" wheels but you have to go bigger.

Unbelievable...I just had Nissan authorize to pay for my 2nd set of new tires for my 2015...why the you know what did they not tell me about replacing the Axel under warranty??? I just called Nissan Com again and asked them about it...they say they know nothing...called my dealer they know nothing about it and are going to check into it...so why would Nissan buy me new tires again and not fix the problem that is causing it if they know what it is...so mad....you can actually see how badly the tires sit from behind...even though they say they are in spec!!! thank-you for the information I am working on it now...I am in Southern CA ...

Well ended up going with the Yokohama 195/60/15 - 4760 lb load tires, almost the exact weight of the van - my cargo rarely goes over 100lbs. Anyway, I must say the ride of the tires is 200% better than the oem tires. Now lets see what mileage ends up being. Out the door $380.

I read around and 205/65/15 seems to be a size that works with these vans. Nokian Entyre off Ebay are $286 for a set(for that size). My dad has them(diff size) on his car and so far its a good tire. Quiet and they claim to handle snow well. Best part is = 70k tread wear warranty. Wear rating is like 700AA. You should get plenty of life out of these, but even if you don't roughly $400 OTD still beats the OE tires.

Nokian is known to make some of the best snow tires. They also make an all weather tire. They are NOT a no name brand.

If I can't get my hands on Nokians I'm gonna try out Milestar MS932 or ohtsu FP7000. Roads around here are too rough to use expensive tires.

Nissan is well aware of out of spec axles. Several have opened claims including myself.
Everyone needs to take there NV to a non dealer tire shop and have alignment measured and get results to prove its out of spec.

205/65R15 tires are way too tall for the NV200 van. They will throw the speedo and odometer way off and will turn a completely underpowered dog van into a worse completely underpowered dog van.


205/60R15 is a much better size for the stock 15 x 5.5" wheels.


I have done much tire research for these vans: New Chevy NV200 from Calgary...


Nokian tires are excellent but the Entyre is an all season tire NOT an all weather tire. The Entyre will be terrible in snow.


As my link above shows the, Nokian WR All Weather in 205/60R15 seems to be the best tire option for the NV200.
It is only load range B but has adequate load rating and will fit on the stock 15 .x 5.5" wheels.


These are my plan in the fall for winter. The completely lame OEM Ameri-Cargo India made in mexico tires will go straight into the dumpster where they belong.
