    I know your post on edmunds is over one year old but I am having a problem with shimming between 15-21 miles per hour. 08 rogue with 28k. I bought it a month ago and it had new tires. I have had them balanced and rotated twice to see if one is out of round or have a bent rim but they say no. The nisson dealer says that is the way the cvt tranm. is. Do you think it might be the tires on it, they came from tire kindom. Did you have this problem? If so what tires did you put on. Harry

    You might have a problem if it already has new tires at 28k miles. I have 28k miles on our 08 Rouge and the original tires still look like new. No shimmying or shakes at any speeds. Depending on the cars options it had 2 tire sizes from the factory, ours has the larger rims w/the low profile tires [don't remember the size w/out looking].

    Good Luck, Ron

    Thanks Ron, I bought it with 27k on it and new sumitomo touring lst tires, size 225/60R17 as per book. I think I will take it to a new nisson place and see what they say.. Its a loaded rogue with leather, sun roof, boise system, paddle shifters, etc..Drive nice except the 15-22 mph speed. It was a repo-and the dealer who sold it to me does not know the past history.

    pitkeys, now that it's been 1+ year on those Avids, what is your experience? Also, what model Avid did you get?

    Anyone else replace their Contis?

    Avid TRZ 225-60 17.

    10,500 miles on them, not much wear. Fine wet traction and OK (within limits) on wet snow and light ice. So far they seem to be a fine tire: Much better wear than the OEM Conti Contacts, and MUCH better traction, braking and cornering. Also much quieter on the highway.

    You say the cvt tranm.vibration is less noticable with the diff. tires? Can you please explain? I have the vibration between 15-20 mph. Harry
  • hess5hess5 Posts: 6
    Between 15-=20 mph slight veberation or shimmying. Dealer (2) of them says that is the cvt tranm., they say that most people do not notice it or either drive throught it. In other words if my speed creaps up to ten and I then push the pedal through to twenty I will not notice the shimmying. Only when I stay in that range do I notice it. I have emailed nisson to see what they say. Just finished a 1,500 mile trip and got 27 mpg, love this car except the above problem. Harry

    Thanks for the report, pitkeys. What you're finding seems in line w/ what I've read.

    I'm not a fan of the Conti Contacts--not a lot of tread out of the box--but they've worn ok. Granted, I rotate them regularly and make sure inflation is good, and drive pretty conservatively. I've got over 46K on them and I think they're good for a few more months, maybe even til the snow flies.

    Hess, I have no such vibration from my cvt. However, the speed range 10-20 is problemmatic for this trans, in that whatever gearing ratios they chose make for a big drop in power right then. So when it shifts at 10 or 15, it feels like you let off the gas. To make up for it you have to gas it a bit, especially if you're merging into high-speed stuff.

    Has anyone else experienced rusting steel rims on a 2008 Rogue S? Nissan is refusing to replace saying it's not a warranty issue, but they will "paint" them, so something must be up. :confuse:

    Hello.
    I can't find my owners manual and was wondering if anyone knows of the recommended tire rotation pattern for a 2009 Rogue S SUV.
    I'm thinking it must just be front to rear as you can't cross radials (have to turn in the same direction).

    Thanks.

    I just rotated my Nissan van's tires yesterday. I do front to back since that's more convenient for me, but an X pattern is better. The only time it's usually recommended to do front to back is when you have directional tires (crossing radial tires is fine).

    Tire Rotation Instructions (Tire Rack).

    You can download a free manual and check what Nissan recommends for your Rogue. I'd be curious to see if an X rotation is not recommended.

    YEP I have a new 2011 Rogue AWD ,I have the Continnetals 4x4 on mine and will deffinetly take them off before winter.. I have the Continnetal contacts on my Equinox AWD and they really sucked in snow and ice and some rains.. they slid very easy not much traction... so not a fan of continnetal tires.. to bad Nissan still uses them..the continnetal 4x4's cost 200 a piece too!! thats ridiculous !! I have Cooper CS4's on my other 4x4 and they ride nice and werer great this past winter with all the snow and ice we had in the Chicago area..wish I could get them for the Rogue. The coopers only cost me 350 for all 4 tires installed at the Tire Barn last fall (2010). Other than the tires the 2011 Rogue is very nice to drive and we are getting 24-26 MPG in city driving. so thats a big plus for Nissans Rogue AWD !!!

    dmb, I replaced my 2008 Rogue AWD original Contis at 50K with Michelin Harmony. The Harmony is a nice tire. Next winter I'm going with Nokian. Last winter I used X-Ice Xi2 and was very disappointed. Really bad on snow.

    I REPLACED MY ROGUE S ORIGINAL CONTI 4X4 215/70/16 TIRES WITH NEW MICHELIN DESTINY 225/60/17 TIRES AND NEW WHEELS FROM DISCOUNT TIRES AND THE RIDE IS SO MUCH BETTER AND IN RAIN NO HYDRO WHAT SO EVER LIKE I HAD WITH THE CONTI'S.. THEY SAY THE ROGUE S MODEL DOES NOT HAVE A OPTIONAL TIRE SIZE TO USE(THATS BULL) , IT IS SAME SIZE OPTION THEY PUT ON THE OTHER MODELS OR THE 18 INCH WHEELS AND TIRES ARE AN OPTION. HANDLING IS SO MUCH BETTER WITH THE 17 INCH TIRES AND WHEELS. hAD THEM ON MY JEEP I TRADED IN AND WERE GREAT..
  • db69442db69442 Posts: 2
    HAS ANYONE CHANGED THE TIRES FROM THE STANDARD 16 INCH TIRES AND WHEELS TO THE 17 INCH TIRES AND WHEELS? nISSAN KEEPS SAYING THEY DO NOT HAVE AN OPTIONAL TIRE FOR THE 2011 ROGUE S MODEL ONLY THE 16 INCH WILL WORK. ANYONE HAVE AN OPINION ON THIS? i SAY THE 17 OR 18 INCH WILL WORK FINE ON THE 2011 ROGUE S MODEL.

    I had the same problem with my 09 Rogue. Nissan would do nothing so I scuffed the wheels and sprayed primer on them then covered them with two coats of black paint right from the spray can. They are holding up quite nicely and continue to shine.

    I going to replace all 4 tires on my wife's Rogue'09 S AWD, right now it has the Conti 4x4 that came from factory. Everybody who has this car knows that these tires are pretty noisy.
    So, I was searching online and for the price I can afford my options are:

    1. BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A Tour ($/547)
    2. Yokohama Geolandar H/T-S G051 ($/445)
    3. Yokohama YK580 ($/475)

    Does somebody over here has an opinion about these tires on the Rogue AWD or could you recommend another one.

    Thanks for any help!!!

    I used to have the low pressure message, just replaced all 4 tires ($ 450 at discount tires) and problem is gone.
    What the dealer say could cause that problem??? Does happen on all 4 tires??? Get an opinion from an authorized and certified tire service company and if they said it could be something defective go to The Dealer, Nissan and BBB.
    Good luck, keep us posted please.
