Hi Folks,
The time has finally arrived,, I have to buy new tires for my 2015 NV200 SV.
The thing is, I have read in the past on this forum a lot about which tires to buy and why. The trouble is I have just searched and I cannot seem to find many of these posts.
Can anyone help me?
What I found (in past posts) was tires that were close to the original in size and load range that had interested me. One author here had done an extensive work-up on many available brands and sizes, are you still here?
What I found here recently were the VancoFourSeason from Continental, correct size and load range but are expensive. And a couple of tires from Nokian, but they don't appear to be the correct load range.
My preferences are:
15 inch
Load range C, 6 ply rating
Less expensive than the Conti's
Better quality than the OEM
All season
Thanks in advance for your consideration!
Stephen

Steved, Thanks for writing, the link you posted is very useful!
Let me ask you this: Do you have tire pressure sensors on your tires? Here in the US we have to have these TPS installed and on the NV200 they are preset and apparently unchangeable at 44psi front, and 48psi rear. I have heard you can vary the pressure a few pounds without illuminating the "low pressure" warning light on the dash. What that means is that there are only a few, 2 that I have found, tires with the ability to run with these high pressures.
The reason I ask is maybe you know of some other brands, such as the Dunlops or maybe you know a work around for the TPS issue.
Thanks again,
S.

Uk models dont have TPS sensors unfortunately . UK models are also fitted with 14 inch wheels and the most popular NV200 tyres ppear to be 175/75R14 T NEXEN CT8s Hankooks and Dunlop Econodrives are all popular. Rotella RHO2 , Goodyear eff grip compact, Avon zt5 also are suitable I think.
The Cold Tire Inflation Pressure for your tires are as follows:

Front Original Tire: 185/60R15C 94/92T 44 psi
Rear Original Tire: 185/60R15C 94/92T 48 psi
Spare Tire (Front): 185/60R15C 94/92T 44psi
Spare Tire (Rear): 185/60R15C 94/92T 48 psi

In the UK we have to have HD rated Light truck tyres with the higher load rating "T" or 93/95 but our tyre pressures are 35 PSI

A bit rough for you guys in the US tyres for our Nvs are around $70 to $85 each.

I found this comment by another member in the US, maybe some help

"You can get around the tire/wheel by getting an aftermarket set. I picked up 17" rims off an Altima and put on 215/50/17 tires for roughly $350 OTD(my winter set. No TPMS). OE steelies are UGLY and tires are EXPENSIVE."

After much research we run Nokian All Weather tires on our fleet of work NV200's.


205/60R15XL, not load range C but adequate load rating and 50PSI.
Slightly wider and larger diameter but not a huge deal.


We run them year round and they are excellent in the snow. They last about a year in our work van's.
About 30, 000 hard work Km's.

Thank you all for your help here.
As you know tires are challenging for this vehicle, which, by the way has become a very good van for me.
I ordered the Nokian 205 60 15 XL
Thanks again
S.
