Michelin LTX M/S 2's. I've had them on three my Rams and three of my wife's Tacomas. Pricey but cannot be beat. Very good on snow and ice.

The Saltillo plant has a much better record for good paint than the Warren Plant. I have been following the paint issue ever since I found that I had a "crappy" paint job on my 2012 Ram. I have...

Thanks for checking. Guess I'll just turn up the volume on the radio and drive on. There hasn't been a hint of any performance issues.

Too much touching up can lead to a big mess of mismatched paint. Be careful. That pretty blue might be a son-of-a-gun to match.

It sounds like water dripping into a puddle or the popping sound you can make with your mouth. There are no fluid leaks.

jrtubb has the right idea. Go for it, good luck....and next time buy a white truck. I drove only black cars and trucks for over thirty years. It took me that long to get smart and go with white.

I have never heard of a dealer applying additional clearcoat. They might call their sealant "clearcoat". True clearcoat is another whole layer paint. Don't think that they would do that. It would...

Good idea. Look at in both direct sunlight and under fluorescent lights....from a bunch of angles. Do not look at it after a rain. I learned this the hard way.

Let us know how it looks.
