View the tires Nissan recommends for 2001 Altimas, plus useful info about Nissan Altima tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. Your vehicle can't drive correctly without the correct tires. As one of our tire technicians, Brianna, explains, "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Nissan Altima tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Nissan Altima snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Nissan Altima's safety and performance from January to December. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you like taking your Nissan Altima far away from civilization? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want a tire that can handle gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in irregular road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Nissan Altima tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your vehicle. You can buy 2001 Nissan Altima tires online now!

2001 Nissan Altima Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Nissan Altima tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why check Nissan tire inflation? The right tire inflation helps increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan! The right tire pressure can make all the difference. Even a small change in tire pressure can impact your driving.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Nissan Altima tires? The numbers on your tire sidewall give you information about tire speed rating, traction, treadwear, tire size, and load carrying capacity. Chat with a tire technician to learn how to read the numbers on your Nissan tires!
  • Is there an easy way to check Nissan tire tread depth? All you need is a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Nissan Altima tires.
