Tracking issues usually affect both tyres tho. Does the car pull when cruising or braking?

Let me presume you have Dunlop tyres on your CRV.

I had a 2008 with Continentals and swapped it for a 2011 iDtec and was surprised it had Dunlop tyres when it arrived; I asked for clarification from the sales team and was advised Continentals where the option!!! Had I known this before purchasing I would have requested Continentals.

I don't think you can choose the brand of tyre fitted at a car factory. If you really don't like the brand supplied, expect to pay to have the set changed. It will cost at least what the labour charge is and a small re-stocking charge for the originals. It depends on whether the replacement tyres are, at net, cheaper or more expensive than the factory set.

According to the sales team where I purchased my CRV yes you can request tyre manufature.

Have you checked tyre pressures. Over or under inflated can lead to un even wear.

Also jack the wheel of the ground. And grab wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock and check for any movement. Side to side movement is usually track ends.

They probably allow a couple of hundred quid extra to get ATS out to change tyres before you see the car. Or they do it themselves. I sincerely doubt whether the factory have the inclination or even capability to choose tyre brands for a particular car going down the line.

So according to you they change option tyres at local ATS garage and not at the factory…… Hmmm Is this fact or fiction.

Don't take the wheels off to check the track ends as youl needs them to grab a hold of to check for movement. There should be no wobble at all

It has been fact the twice that I've been involved in such a thing. On low volume industrial machines you do actually have a choice sometimes and according to availability. Size of tyre and wheel is less of a problem than brand, although with the CRV you are set a size according to model, but for a vastly inflated price you can choose a wheel design option. No mention is made of a tyre brand option.

On the industrial equipment I was directly involved with from day to day, there was always a large choice of wheel and tyre sizes and types to choose for every factory order. These all had different prices. However, if a particular brand was specified, there was a £500 surcharge for the privilege, with a £1000 surcharge [at list before discount] for certain brands like Michelin. All subject to availability. That's on top of any adjustment either way for size variation.

You might have noticed that cars are supplied on mainly one brand of tyre. That is because the factory puts their tyre contract out to tender and for the duration of the contract they supply the winner's tyres exclusively where they can supply the size requested.

If you think that Nissan will supply your own individual choice of tyre brand fitted at the factory, you are welcome to go for it. One thing is for certain, if you don't ask you won't get.
At the end of the day it doesn't matter whether the tyre is factory fitted or fitted by the dealer or a tyre specialist, as long as you get what you want at an agreeable price.
