Hey!
I am Running 285/70/R17's BFG's on my Megacab.... Load rated "D". My "Death wobble was not caused by the tires, but by the steering damper which had sprung a leak. Installed the Dodge Replacement for just under $200 CAN. From what I researched, it is caused more likely than not by a worn suspension part (Ball Joints/tie rods/trailing arm bushing/steering damper) than by the load rating of the tire....However, running that size.... there is a lot of weight rotating around.... is your Ram lifted? That seems to be an issue sometimes as well ( maybe due to the truck not being biased enough weight wise on the front end....)
