I would reccommend you go to the Nissan dealer and road test with either a technician or service advisor/manager to duplicate your concern.

Nissan problem


This is a very typical issue on lifted vehicles being driven on the street. It is important to know that when a vehicle is lifted, the steering and suspension geometry change and characteristics will change as well.
My first concern would be with front wheel alignment. If front caster angles are too severe, the will fight each other over rough surfaces and cause the truck to wander or feel like a shake.
Also, front toe angles are crucial for proper tire wear and stability.
Have the front end aligned and checked. If there are no alignment issues, focus on the shocks and that steering stabilizer. Was the problem there before you installed the stabilizer? If not, check it for proper oil/ gas charge.
Weak or worn shocks will cause the tires to bounce and leave the road over bumps. Since the truck and been lifted, make sure the shocks are the proper length. If they are too short (even by as little as 20mm), they cause rebound problems and make the opposing side overcompensate with a bouncing effect.

Can I put P225/60R16 on my 2006 Nissan Altima the factory spec is for P215/60R16


You should be o.k. Your speedometer will read a little lower than actual speed (about 2 mph) so if your going 60 mph, by speedo, you'll be doing roughly 62 mph. Approx. only 1/2" wider so shouldn't rub when turning sharp. One thing to be very aware of though, as I experienced it personally with exact same change in size, is that the response in the steering wheel seemed a bit quicker. In other words, until your used to them, pay close attention to road more while driving. I found a slight movement in steering wheel on highway, and vehicle wandered off quicker, as well as when in turns, it took less travel of steering wheel than normal. Just takes more concentration for a while.

My 2007 buick rendezvous has a shudder starting at 40 mph and it smooths out at about 55-60 mph. this occurs with moderate acceleration. the tires and rims are fine had them checked out extensively. seems...


It's a step-by-step process. If it only happens on acceleration then it is a drivetrain problem. Start verifying from the outer cv joints and go in from there

Front end vibration


on both my Camrys, i had this problem. You could really notice it when you were driving down the road going 40-60 mph and punch the gas - car would vibrate, let off the gas - vibration stops, punch the gas - car vibrates...... On both, it was the CV joints. It is much easier to just replace the drive axles (with the new cv joints and boots already installed). For my last replacement, i think thy were only around $65 each.
