2. Please describe the wear pattern on the front tires in more detail. For example is the excessive tread wear.....
A. Right across the face of the tread on each tire or
B. On the outside edges of the tread on each tire or
C. on the inside edges of the tread on each tire or
D. on both sides of the tread but not on the center section of the tread on both tires.
B is normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe in
C is also normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe out
D is normally caused by tire pressure set way too low.
Faulty steering and suspension components can also cause abnormal tire wear for any component that affects the wheel alignment settings.
If you can provide a better description of the tire wear on each front tire you will get a better answer.
Under inflation. When the tire doesn't have enough air pressure, the center tends to be pushed up from the road. Thus causing outer wear on both sides. alignment problems cause wear on one side or the other. Over inflation causes the center of the tire to wear .
If it were my car I would have taken it right back to the Dealership as soon as I discovered the problem. You paid for a service and they claimed to have provided that service. As a representative to Nissan they should have done the right thing by you, the customer. If you have not contacted them, do so. If you have a reciept for services rendered so should they in their service records. They should even be able to tell which of their techs worked on your car. The bottom line is you can't put an allignment on worn out parts and until they touched your car it didn't wear out tires. You have the right to be angry and you shouldn't have to worry about if you can switch your tires to the back. To answer your question, yes you can switch if they aren't too badly worn. But switching will only wear out the other two tires and putting sloped tires in the back can put undo stress on your rear wheel bearings and other components. Good Luck
problem is with over inflating the tires,causing middle tread wear,as long as you have more the 3/32 tread wear in the middle than you are ok.always set tire pressure when cold at around 33psi,check tire inflation sticker on dar jam for exact tire pressure

1.Measure the tread depth of the tires.Tread depth of tire [Limit] : 1.6 mm (0.06 in.)2.If the remaining tread depth is less than the limit, replace the tire.When the tread depth of the tire is reduced to 1.6 mm (0.06 in.) or less, the wear indicators will appear.
