Re: Changing the tire size on a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder
Go with the 265/75/16, they are the same as the Off Road Pathfinder. If you shop around, you can find them for alot less than the original size price. Be sure to find a good all season tire with a good treadwear rating.

Hello, there is really no problem what pattern is on the tread, you only run into problems by changing sizes. There is a really good tire sizer in the Discount tires.com site. You use some of the tools in the site and you can find out what you can use on the rims you have if you want to change sizes.
They also have a MPH calculator which will tell you about the speedometer error from changing tire sizes. The All-Terrain tires have wider grooves on them and will tend to be nosier than All-Season tires. You can also save some money on buying tires with the proper Speed rating for your vehicle.
The faster the speed rating, the more expensive the tire.
You should check your current tires and look at the speed rating for them, it will be on the sidewall. You would want the same or better as your stock tires. Watch for the load rating too!
Everybody has an opinion on Brands and surprisingly, some Brands make a great tire in one size and the same Brand, same Tire type, can be lousy in another rim size. Ford puts All-Terrain tires on some vehicles, just go to a New car lot and look at what they are installing on the new models.
yes you can easily change rim sizes without any problems the problem comes into play depending on road conditions that you travel on as to get the same size tire you will have a lot less sidewall which means it will be easier to dent rims and lose the seal. going to a larger tire would solve this but you would have to lift the vehicle to do it. i do not think i would go any larger than 18" so the tires are not too small of a sidewall where speed bumps will destroy rims.
You can also vary whether it's on pavement or off road.
Check your tires to make sure they're the same size. Even different brands can be slightly different. Also uneven tires pressure will do it. Any differences in sizes of tires may confuse the 4wd system when trying to go back into 2wd.
