Hi all, I have an Altima 2000 SE, and when I went to Tire Rack to pick select a tire it returns 205/60-15", but when I look at another site it returns 205/55-16". Do you know which is the OE for my car??

Thanks

Since you have an SE, 205/55-16 would be your OE size. They came with 16" wheels.

Thanks jethro_13, that looks like a great tire. I am currently using Dunlop 5000, and they are ok ride, but can not handle 3" of snows. My car slips when I turn. I need something that can handle snow. And this tire looks like a good snow tires.

I will wait for more reply and decide which is better.

Thanks again

- Continental ContiExtremeContact
- Kumho ASX
- Dunlop SP5000 assymetric

flarearrow, I ended up getting the
- Continental ContiExtremeContact
from tire rack, becuase they dont have the 2 other tires I want.
Anyone know how good these 2 tires performs?

"Goodyear Assurance TripleTred"
"Pirelli P-Zero nero M+S"

Thanks

You made a good choice. You'll be pleased with the bad weather preformance from the Continentals. And remember, it's a ultra high performance tire. Even though the Pirellis are rated M+S, it's more bias towards dry performance.

So, Continental ContiExtremeContact is more toward wet/snow performance? I am sure they are all excellent tires that perform well.

Thanks again

Glad you're enjoying it.

Tires (and wheels) makes the single biggest improvement in a cars handling and braking ability.
