    that wasn't the question. we all know that 245/65/17 (not 27!) is the OEM stock size tire for the '02 Pathfinder. He asked if it was possible to instead use 265/65/17 tires? His mechanic seemed to think that the wider tire (265 vs. 245) would cause problems with the 4WD system. He wanted to know if that was true? I don't know if that's the case, but I would also want to know if the wider tire would rub the fender well when turned left or right, especially when hitting a bump when the suspension is compressed. Anyone know the answers to these questions? Thanks.

There is no problem when changing of another size "all the tires", the problem is when one or two tires have diferent size respect of the others.

the diameter of the tire is whats important-wrap a string around them and see what the difference is-if you have two wheel drive put the miss match tire on the front-it may make it pull a bit so be careful- cheers Denny

How do I reset the TPMS warning light on my 2007 Nissan Pathfinder ? I have inflated a low air pressured tire too the proper inflation pressure, but the warning light remains on. Can anyone help me with...


My daughter has a 2006 Murano, and has had the same problems.
Replacement Tire Pressure sensors are available from e-bay online, but when the first one of hers quit, I found out from the dealer that the computer loses track and must be reset. I would not replace any wheel sensors just yet.
Where we live, the Nissan dealer wants about $150 to reset the computer and turn off the "flat tire" light.
Recently, a local tire store has offered to do this for free.
I took my daughter's car in to have the computer reset.
The store manager says they cannot reset Nissans or Toyotas, only the dealer can.
So, my daughter is living with the "flat tire" light.

What prevents the spare tire from reporting pressure on a 2005 Pathfinder.


good question, don't think i have ever been asked this one.the tire pressure is monitored not by a pressure sensor inside the tire on a pathfinder but by the wheel speed, each wheel hub ( the thing the wheel bolts to ) has a speed sensor and the on-board computer is allwise monitoring the wheel speed, if one tire gets low on air it will be slightly smaller in diameter, so this will cause that one hub sensor to allwise read a slightly higher speed than all the other sensors so if the computer keeps seeing one wheel reading a little faster then all the other wheel sensors wile the car is going strate down the road it will them assume that that tire is low on air and turn on the low tire light. now some of your high doller cars do have sensors inside the tires but those cars do not have spair tires ( have you ever seen a spair on a corvett?) and those setups have specal made tires and wheels for this system.....so as you can see the spair is not bolted to a hub so the car doset care if its flat or not, but you will if you ever need it, so ckeck the air in the spair.

2007 suburban dash is saying stability system disabled what does this mean ?


{: ) Check for excessive wear on any of the tires on the vehicle and then verify that all the tires are the same size, brand, and same model. It is also important to check and make sure the tire pressure is properly adjusted per the sticker on the door. The following examples listed below could cause this condition:
1. 2 tires on the vehicle are Goodyear P245/75R16 and the other 2 tires are Firestone P245/75R16
2. 2 Tires on the vehicle are brand new and the other two tires have excessive wear.
3. 2 Tires on the vehicle are Goodyear Wrangler SRA 265/70R17 and 2 tires are Goodyear Wrangler HP 265/70R17 (Same brand/different models)
4. Aftermarket Wheels and Tires (NON-OEM 20 inch wheels and tires)
5. Tire pressure is not properly adjusted.

03 Chevy 2500HD Service Brake System Warning


When you replaced the ABS sensor on the hub, did you clean and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring on the hub. There was a recall on the ABS Malfunction on your truck. The tire size don't make a difference to your ABS as long as all four tires are the size, There was a issue bulletin with your Tahoe on the ABS activating under 8 km/h. Good luck and hope this helps, if not clean out the sensor with brake parts cleaner and check the wire harness and ABS sensor bracket. Re gap the sensor to the speed ring hub. Here is the bulletin.

Change tire sizes from 265/40 to 265/35 and 225/40 to 225/35


When resizing tires, the best method is +1,-1 or -1, +1. That is, if you add to the width one size (i.e. 235 -> 245), then you need to go down one aspect ratio (i.e. 40 -> 35). So if you run 225/40ZR18 tires and want to keep your speedo accurate, 235/35ZR18 works for a "plus one" and 215/45ZR18 will work for a "minus one" change. This way, your impact on speedometer accuracy is minimal.

Hope this helps,
matt

2000 Ford Explorer AWD purchased with different size tires


It is true that driving with different size tires can damage the transfer case, depending on how long it was driven like that. But--- even if the tires are the same size it can cause this. if the tires are worn and two tires are new the circumference of the tires must not be more than 1/2 inch difference from each other, take a tape measure and put it around the tire in the center and measure the difference of each tire

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.
