What are the best snow tires for a Nissan Sentra?
We just bought our daughter a used Nissan Sentra, but we want to make sure it’s all set for the upcoming winter weather before she starts driving it. What are the best snow tires for a Sentra?

Finding a good set of winter tires is one of the most essential parts ofwinterizing your car—and the best snow tires for a Nissan Sentra are the Bridgestone Blizzak WS90s. These tires are specifically engineered with extra stiffness, specialized tread, and a hydrophilic coating to increase traction on icy roads. For most Sentras, you’ll need size 205/60R16, but check your specific model’s owners manual to ensure a proper fit.
Driving in the snow is no joke no matter where you live, but if your area only gets a few snowfalls a year, your Sentra may be fine with a set of all-weather tires like Kumho Solus HA31 tires. These tires aren’t as snow-ready as winter tires, but they’re more capable than your average all-season tires.
If you opt for full snow tires, make sure you change them back to all-season tires once the weather begins to warm up. Otherwise, your tires will wear out much faster, leading to more frequent (and more expensive!) tire changes. If you go for all-weather tires, they should be fine in any season.

How do I open the gas tank on a 2012 Nissan Maxima?
I’m borrowing my dad’s car because mine is in the shop, but I can’t figure out how to open the gas tank. The worst thing is, our neighbor Ned—a notorious loudmouth—was filling up at the same time and laughing at me the whole time I was trying to open the tank. The guy didn’t even help me once he’d finished pumping his own gas—he just drove off and with the window open and yelled “good luck, sonny boooooooooooooy!” I’m never shoveling the snow off his driveway ever again.
