24/7 roadside assistance
Introduced in 2007, the Rogue is a stylish compact crossover SUV powered by a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. The Rogue Select was manufactured in 2013-14 before the next generation of Rogue was introduced, and was available with front- or all-wheel drive. Nissan Rogue models were capable and comfortable, and were available with premium features like touchscreen navigation, leather upholstery, upgraded audio, and more. Rogue models also scored highly in safety rankings with technology like side curtain airbags, side-impact airbags with rollover sensors, traction control, stability control, anti-skid control, and brake force distribution. Rogue Select models had EPA fuel economy numbers of 26 mpg highway/22 mpg city/24 mpg combined.
Here at SimpleTire, our team has gone through and compiled some of the best Nissan Rogue Select tires, including all-season, all-weather, all-terrain, and winter tire options. We then ranked them in Best/Great/Good order and used our SimpleScore system to note a numerical score for the categories of traction, longevity, and handling for each tire. Ready? Let’s go in for a closer look:
1. Bridgestone Weatherpeak - Best All-Weather tire
Let’s kick off this roundup with a great all-weather choice for your Nissan Rogue Select, the Bridgestone Weatherpeak. If you live in a part of the country that might see several inches of snow, with subfreezing temperatures ensuring that the roads are snow-packed for days or weeks, you may have already found out the hard way that most all-season tires just are not going to be capable of reliably getting the job done for you. All-weather tires may be a new-ish category to many drivers, but in most ways they’re pretty similar to all-season tires. The main distinction is that tire makers design them for improved performance in snow and slush. With those performance goals in mind, Bridgestone engineers made sure that the Weatherpeak’s tread can deliver consistent grip in winter weather. The all-weather tread pattern is capable of multiplying traction in snow and slush with\ a dense network of sipes, the hair-thin slits that add hundreds of extra biting edges to give drivers the advantage they need. The sipe design of the Weatherpeak is a unique 3D mold that continues to enhance your winter traction even as the miles pile up and tread depth gets shallower. It’s especially innovative since worn tread usually is synonymous with poorer traction with just about any tire. The Weatherpeak also is designed with “snow vices”, grooves that trap and retain snow to build snow-to-snow friction and enhance winter grip. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, then, that the Bridgestone Weatherpeak is certified with the Three Peak Mountain Snowflake rating for severe winter service. Testing shows a real advantage in braking, with the Weatherpeak being capable of braking distances that are as much as 30 feet shorter than the competition’s tires. Our team looked at all these factors and noted a SimpleScore of 9.7 for traction for the Bridgestone Weatherpeak. SimpleScore for handling comes in at a very solid 9,5, thanks to its tread design and rubber formulation. Steering response and cornering are also superb with performance that’s direct but never overly sensitive or touchy. Road manners, steering response, and cornering ability are also admirable with this tire, regardless of weather and road conditions. Our SimpleScore for longevity is a best-in-class 9.8; Bridgestone covers the Weatherpeak with a 70,000 mile limited manufacturer’s tread life.
2. Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S - Best All-Terrain tire
For a Nissan Rogue Select that’s equipped with AWD or 4WD, you might need an all-terrain tire to get the most out of its performance potential. The Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S is the tire that’s versatile enough to do it all - you can think of it as a strong, hardworking set of hands in a pair of stylish leather driving gloves. We're impressed with the durability of the Discoverer AT3 4S; Cooper stands by this tire with a 65,000 mile manufacturer’s treadwear warranty, one of the best you’ll find for any AT tire in this class. When it comes to longevity, we give the Discoverer AT3 4S a SimpleScore of 9.2. Thanks to Aqua-Vac channels with deep center grooves for wet-weather traction, a 5-rib Secure-Grip all-terrain tread pattern, Micro-Gauge zigzag sipes, and Cooper’s Snow Groove technology that traps and retains snow to build snow-to-snow friction, traction registers a strong SimpleScore of 9.7. The Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S is certified with the tire industry’s Three Peak Mountain Snowflake rating for severe winter service. SimpleScore for handling is 9.4, thanks to this tire’s durable internal construction that consists of a 2-ply polyester casing with two steel belts and a single-ply nylon reinforcement layer for stability at highway speed.
3. Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 - Best Winter tire
Next up is our choice for a winter tire, and the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 is a perfect option for winter performance for your Nissan Rogue Select. The Blizzak DM-V2 has the design elements and technology to get you through some of the nastiest winter conditions without putting you and your passengers through a noisy, rough ride. This purpose-built winter tire is packed with features like an advanced winter tread formulation, incorporating Bridgestone’s multi-cell rubber compounds and a hydrophilic coating that ensures the tire stays flexible at subfreezing temperatures. The Blizzak puts more rubber in contact with the road with increased block edges in its tread pattern, and its tread compound is infused with “bite particles” that let the Blizzak DM-V2 really dig into snowy, slushy, or icy surfaces, earning a SimpleScore of 9.7 for traction. That enhanced contact patch is designed to not just improve traction but also steering feedback and response, bringing home a SimpleScore of 8.9 for handling. Durability is also a strong point; while most tires naturally lose traction as they wear down, Bridgestone designed the Blizzak DM-V2 with NanoPro Tech Multicell Compound for the first 55% of the tire’s tread depth. The remaining 45% of tread depth is a standard winter compound that still offers excellent grip on snow and slush (SimpleScore of 9.3 for longevity). As you’d probably expect, the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 is Three Peak Mountain Snowflake rated for severe winter service.
While these are the best Nissan Rogue Select tires on the market, there are plenty of other options to consider.
4. Firestone Destination LE3 - Great All-Season tire
The Firestone Destination LE3 is an all-season that gets some of the most consistently high ratings of any on the market today and for good reason. It’s extremely durable thanks to its internal construction and damage-resistant rubber compound, with a 70,000 mile warranty, which registers a SimpleScore of 9.5 in longevity. Get confident performance year-round with Firestone’s TractionTech package, a combination of 3D full-depth sipes, open shoulder slots, and circumferential grooves working together as a system, for a SimpleScore of 8.6 for traction. The Destination LE3’s stability, roadability, steering response, driver feedback, and drivability are all confident and capable, with a SimpleScore of 8.3 for handling.
5. Sumitomo HTR Enhance LX2 - Good All-Season tire
Let’s wrap up this list with the Sumitomo HTR Enhance LX2, an all-season tire that’s designed for the long wear, ride comfort, and low noise you expect from a Grand Touring tire along with all-season traction and performance. The outer shoulder blocks of the HTR Enhance LX2 are tuned for better cornering stability and low noise. “Bending sipes” in the center rib provide great wet-weather traction as well as steering response, and chamfered lateral and circumferential grooves help with dependable winter or wet-weather traction. The internal construction of the HTR Enhance LX2 includes two steel belts and a nylon cap ply with a reinforced bead apex that delivers good rigidity for cornering and handling response. The HTR Enhance LX2 is protected by an up to a 90,000 mile limited manufacturer tread life warranty, depending on the tire’s size and speed rating.
