What's a good tire replacement for the OEM 18" Tire set? I can't stand those Goodyears, I had them on my 97 Expedition and they were the worse. Swtched to some Falken STZ04 and those were wonderful, ride and traction were A+++

Michelin Cross Terrains in the OEM size.

Lexus 470's come stock with these for a reason. More for street than off road. Smooth as silk and no noise or vibration. Wonderful. Everyone who actually has them, as opposed to reading about them, swears by them. They're French, but, hey, Nissan is owned by a French company, I think.

The Cross terrains are excellent. For about the same money (if you like a more aggressive look) the Nitto terra grapplers are great too. I just mounted a set and it was night and day over the Goodyears.

it look like you did 20's, I was looking for the 18's for the winter, I am going to get the 20's in the early spring. I was looking at the MB Motoring Wheels they have a couple wheels I like I just have not decided as of yet. But I had 285/60/18 on my Expedition and they were nice. I would like to go back to that setup until after winter.

Are you looking for a tire that fits stock 18" rims that will do well in snow? I mean basically is this going to be your winter snow setup so you want snow tires?
The best I could find for snow specific tires is the Blizzak DM-Z3. It comes in 265/60 QR18

Little shorter than stock at 30.6 vs. 32.8" but its the tallest snow tire I can find. You could also try an A/T or M/T tire. The Nittos come in 285/60/18, again al little short at 31.4" but not bad. ;) http://www.nittotire.com/tires_terragrappler.asp

Those are what I want RIGHT THERE!!! Some winter shoes with insulation!!! I can deal with the shortness for the time being just want to get through winter without the Goodyears.
