Nissan Pathfinder Tire Review Highlights

Writing about the Continental Cross Contact LX Sport given 40% (235-65-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 9000 spirited miles
Not impressed, slip in the corners under speed limit conditions around town, hold ok on the open road but a little nervous now i know they do not hold terribly well at low speeds, especially in the wet. actively looking for a replacement tire as we speak....

4 Tires completely worn out after only 15,000km I will never buy Continental tires again, these tires slip and slide in the wet and take off

Writing about the Cooper Discoverer ST MAXX given 61% (265-65-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 spirited miles
Had the Cooper ST MAXX tires 6 months, lasting very well, great in the dry, not so great wet & greasy surface especially when ambient sub 5 degrees C. I don't think these tires are winter rated at all, more summer tire. I have always ran BF Goodrich At's, the BFG's are definitely better in the wet. But they are £40-£50 extra per tire. The Coopers look awesome, and I'll run these until worn or I sell the truck. I will be going back to BF's on my next tire purchase.

Writing about the Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S given 88% (265-70-15-T)
Driving on mostly motorways for 7200 spirited miles
I bought these on promotion for about 1/3 less than they go for now.
A handsome tire with good grip in all conditions. Unphased by heavy rain on the highway. Particularly amazing grip in deep snow in 4H or 4L. With 8" snow I was comfortably smashing up steep hills, stopping controlled and quickly, and VERY predictably 4 wheel drifting in the snow. Very good at expelling mud or snow from getting packed in the tread. Noise from tire is hardly noticeable compared to other tires in the category. Capable on and off road with an amazing 65,000 mile warranty.

MPG noticably decreased; my average mpg fell from ~18.5 to ~17 mpg in the past year. The tires squeal on concrete roads in wet conditions before they have warmed up. Pebbles stay wedged in between the tread and make clicking noises until the noise stops on the highway and some poor sod behind you got a rock chip. Tire feedback feels numb, but that blame can be shared with my 20 yr old suspension on a 4500# Nissan dinosaur. Also, the price skyrocketed after the positive reviews rolled in.

TL;DR These are class leading tires that punch above their, and their manufacturer's weight. Cooper marketing was spot on for the SUV driver that mostly keeps to the highway, but needs uncompromising off-road performance when duty calls. At the current $156/ea USD price online, I'd shop around or wait for a rebate. When first released I got the price down to ~$100/ea USD with a rebate.

Driving on a combination of roads for 13000 spirited miles
Great tire all-rounder but the wear & tear meant replacing them after only 13,000 mls. As far as I'm concerned; this is unacceptable especially when you consider I was driving a brand new vehicle with a wheel alignment and rotation @ 7,000mls.

@ yr old tires with nearly 20K miles and they are already perished and cracking. nice tire when new but a tire should last longer than 2 yrs without cracking and perishing.

Writing about the Pirelli Scorpion ATR given 93% (265-65-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 40000 spirited miles
An absolutely prefect tire for this vehicle. My Pathfinder probably spends 70% for its' time on the road and 20% dirty road and 10% off road. I work in Civil construction and have used my vehicle to pullout 5ton work trucks stuck in a ditch & mud. Other work utes with 4WD tires struggle in wet and are uncomfortable on the road. The wear is not great but good due to being a soft compound 4WD tire, but they grip really well in the wet unlike most other hard compound/wearing 4WD tires. Let's face it - how often will you drive off road, thus in my opinion they are the best all round 4WD/SUV tires on the market. You will not be disappointed with these Pirelli Scorpion ATR's and will love the handling & ride comfort.

Driving on a combination of roads for 40000 spirited miles
Best AT tires I've had they don't last as long as BFG but wet weather grip is day and night better than any other all terrain I've used with is most of them. Just past 40000 miles with them now and they'll be due for a change in the next 5k or so I'll be fitting the same again.

I am a huge fan of Nankang tires,we have a Mercedes clk500 with AMG package,and the car came with Invo's,biggest waste of money for the person or people who bought or will buy these tires,5000mi the back wall gave out,and the front tires ended up being all warped,ridges on the outside,I was recommended the NSII from a friend for my 2001 Pathfinder,got an alignment program from Tire Kingdom,visited them every 3wks,end result?50,000mi and almost down to the wear bars,they were 22's,and recommend these to everyone and bought these for a much faster vehicle and believe in them.....take what you want,leave the rest,my car is Governed at 165mph......

Driving on a combination of roads for 30000 average miles
I have had these tires on the car since I purchased it nearly 3 years ago.. The tires weren't quite brand new when I got the car but this is now the first time I am having to consider changing them. I am very confident for the safety of my family in all conditions with these tires. I am buying a new set of Goodyear Wranglers.
