Get the Right Tires for 1997 Nissan Maxima

Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  1997 Nissan Maxima. 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 handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View Nissan-recommended tires for your 1997 Maxima, plus useful info about Nissan Maxima tire size, tire inflation, 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Nissan Maxima tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Nissan Maxima snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Nissan Maxima's performance and safety throughout the year. 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!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you like taking your Nissan Maxima 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 tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability on bumpy roads. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Nissan Maxima 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're only a click or two away from a new set of 1997 Nissan Maxima tires.

1997 Nissan Maxima Tire Questions

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Nissan Maxima 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 numbers on my Nissan Maxima 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 Maxima tires.
