The Owners Manual for the 4x4 Model Nissan Pathfinders eludes to the likeliness that the transmission will fail when using mismatched/mixed tire types, brands or sizes.....

The vehicle accelerates real slow and has vibration in the engine. Ran a OBD2 scanner and got the scan trouble codes. There were two codes detected, a P0300 and a P0328. The P0300 was a multiple misfire problem and the other was the knock sensor code. These parts are both killers on a person's wallet. Now I see why the dealer repairs are so expensive.

Verified for the Nissan Pulsar NX

Excessive timing chain noise, a rattling or ticking, on higher mileage cars may lead to timing chain failure, which can cause engine damage. There are upgraded chain tension guides with a steel backing to improve durability and a modified repair procedure no longer requires the removal of the cylinder head to replace the timing chain. Maintaining proper engine oil level and frequent oil changes are important to ensure the long-term durability of this engine.

The brakes may develop a pulsation or judder felt during light and moderate braking. This may be felt as a pedal pulsation, steering wheel shake, and/or a body vibration. The repair involves resurfacing all four brake rotors using an "On-car" brake lathe (replacing if necessary) and using updated brake pads and components.
