View the tires Nissan recommends for 2002 Altimas, plus important information about Nissan Altima tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Nissan Altima tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, 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.

Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. It's a smart way to capitalize on Nissan Altima's performance and safety throughout the year. 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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Nissan Altima? Going where no vehicle has gone before? If you're a big off-roading fan you forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. You'll want tires that can stand up to sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. 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 plan on sticking around town, a Nissan Altima tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Browse Nissan Altima tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2002 Nissan Altima tire for your needs.

2002 Nissan Altima Tire Questions

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.

  • Is Nissan tire inflation important? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Nissan Altima tires? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Nissan tires at home? Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Nissan Altima tires.
