Buy Tires for 2016 Nissan Leaf

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  2016 Nissan Leaf tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Nissan tires in all sizes, for all seasons.

View the tires Nissan recommends for 2016 Leafs, plus useful info about Nissan Leaf tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Nissan Leaf tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

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 Leaf's performance and safety throughout the year. Other drivers buy one set of all-season tires instead. That way they don't have to return to the tire shop and their vehicle is always ready for sun, rain, and light snow!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Nissan Leaf? 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. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance on bumpy roads. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Nissan Leaf tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. 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 2016 Nissan Leaf tires online now!

2016 Nissan Leaf Tire Questions

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

  • Why check Nissan tire inflation? 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 tire sidewall numbers mean for my Nissan Leaf? 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 Leaf tires.
