Get the Right Tires for 2006 Nissan Altima

Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  2006 Nissan Altima tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Nissan tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you need a tire that's designed to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View Nissan-recommended tires for your 2006 Altima, plus important information about Nissan Altima tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires and you'll experience our best service. As one of our tire managers, Ruben, says, “I make sure you know which tire is the best fit for your car, not only for performance but safety.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Nissan Altima tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter 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 thinking about your driving conditions, consider where you live (mountains vs. city vs. countryside) and the kind of weather can catch you off-guard. (Watch out Tornado Alley!) Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy 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 the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy pushing your Nissan Altima to the limits? 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 dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in uneven road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Nissan Altima tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Nissan Altima tires online. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2006 Nissan Altima tire for your needs.

Questions About 2006 Nissan Altima Tires

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 does Nissan tire inflation matter? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • What do the numbers on my Nissan Altima tires mean? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read Nissan tire numbers.
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Nissan tires? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with 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.
