What’s The Nissan Rogue Tire Size?
On the Nissan Rogue, you’ll notice there are three tire size options, starting with P225/65R17 all-season tires on the S and the SV trims. On the SV trim level, you’ll also have the option for larger P225/60R18 all-season tires.
Bigger wheels can help improve handling, so the Rogue SL is armed with P225/55R19 all-season tires. But what do these tire sizes mean? Allow us to show you.
How Do You Read Tire Size?
Staring at a tire size can be confusing. It may appear like a jumble of letters and numbers, but each symbol means something different in terms of size. Once we break it down, you’ll see how simple it is to determine tire size.
Let’s start by using the baseline P225/65R17 tires as an example.
- P: The P in your tire size is standard for passenger vehicle, letting you know this tire was made for a sedan rather than a commercial truck.
- 225: Next, you’ll see a 3-digit number that represents the tire’s width in millimeters. For the Rogue, the tires are 225 millimeters—a little under nine inches wide. If you like, you can choose a narrower tire to improve traction or a wider one for enhanced stopping power on dry pavement.
- 65: After the slash you’ll notice a 2-digit number. This represents your tire’s aspect ratio and results from comparing tire height to tire width. For this standard tire, the sidewall is 65% of the width.
- R: The R stands for “radial” construction, meaning the cord piles run 90 degrees in the direction of travel. Some other common letters you may see on other tires include D and B.
- 17: This last number is the diameter of your tire in inches and directly correlates to the size of your wheel.
For example, these standard wheels are paired to 17-inch by 7-inch steel wheels on the S trim and aluminum-alloy wheels on the SV. If you choose the optional tire on the SV, you’ll get an 18-inch by 7-inch aluminum-alloy wheel. Finally, the tire on the top-of-the-line SL trim level is paired with 19-inch by 7-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
