On the Altimas. You guys might want to contact firestone or that # about yours since we have the same tires that are on the Altimas.

I don't think they're the same. Ours a 195/55 16, the recall is on the 205/55 16.

I'm not saying I'm happy with the Firestones, but I don't think the recall will cover it.

Of course, I may be wrong

question:

why would we even want them replaced? hypothetically, let's say it did affect our tires on the 16" SE's. would they give us some $$ to get other tires? they did that with the explorers. i would not want to replace fireturds with fireturds.

firestone authorized the use of the competition. Bridgestone was one and I the other I forgot.

They were both Bridgestones, just different models. Unfortunately, that's not really the competition, Bridgestone and Firestone are the same company.

I guess it doesn't really matter since our tires are not subject to the recall. Let's just hope that they are recalled in the future!

Well, every letter that gets sent is one more in the pile. It can't hurt. I was actually thinking about doing something like that....with a cc to Nissan Motor Corp.
