Hello, my name is Terry, aka Conk. I just took back my 2010 Frontier from my 85 year old mother. We didn't have room in the driveway or garage, so I kept it at her house. She drove it to the grocery mainly. The baggers always got a kick out of seeing this little old lady asking them to toss her bags into the back of the Nissan. Sadly, she has trouble seeing and we've convinced her to stop driving.

The truck is a basic 4 cylinder, black w/ gray interior. It only has 12,100 miles. Has the original tires. Still in great shape. Runs like a brand new one, which is basically is. 22 MPG. It serves it's purpose well and that is just to have a truck around when needed. Home Depot runs. Hauling wood. Help friends move.

I've been a member of several car forums in the past and find them invaluable for sharing information and learning new things about the vehicles. No issues currently with the truck, but was wondering if the tires were an issue. They could be as much as 8 years old. No cracks on the side walls, but they have been out in the Sun for the life of the truck. Any thoughts?

So, glad that I found this forum!

Conk (short for Conkroach. When my oldest daughter was very little and saw a bug she would scream "There's a conkroach". It's always been a word that stuck with us for 22 years, so I adopted it as a user ID once in frustration when every other name I tried was already in use. ;)

If you drive in snow/Winter climates, even colder climates...then the brittleness of the aged rubber may prove less useful despite the amount of tread you likely have remaining. For as few miles as you drive annually, I wouldn't break the bank nor buy a super long-lasting tire should you choose to replace them.
