Default what tires are on the 2013 for low rolling resistance.

I have a 2011 sport 4x4 crew cab. I need to replace some tires. I figured i'd just go with the new low rolling resistance ones the 2013 has.

Exactly what model and brand are these though?

I went to the dealership last week

I saw very few Goodyears on the 2013s, only 3 of those were Wranglers, some were other models of Goodyear
All the rest were Firestone & Michelin, there may have been one other brand
I would have to look at another one of my posts to see

reviews on the HP's on my truck aren't so hot as well. 20,000 miles and the center of the tread in the rear was completely gone they overinflate them so much. once i rotated I dropped pressure.

Yes, but YOU own the truck & it is up to the owner to check their tires & inflate to the proper COLD psi. Tires are too expensive & too much of a hazard to not check them.

Not picking on you, just air pressures & all fluid levels are the owners responsibility.

I assumed 36-37 psi like it says was fine. Little did I know running the pressure dodge recommends would cause the entire center portion of the tread in the rear to become bald in 15,000 miles. This is with absolutely no peeling out or tire spin. So that rant of yours is falling on deaf ears. Clearly it's too much pressure with the lack of weight in the rear and the tire bulges in the center and wears it out ridiculously fast. Now I run 32 in the rear in hopes of semi decent treadlife. Obviously these manufacturers are doing whatever they can to claim better mpgs. They'd rather run pressures so high your tires in the rear wear abnormally fast just to be able to put down 1mpg better on paper. Hey whatever makes a buck I guess. But wtf

When hot they were breaking 42 psi from the dealer

I rotate my tires about every 6,000 miles
the dealership that i use only moves the tires front to back, left tires are always on the left, right side same way
That is fine for tires that have a rotational arrow, most don't

Tires without the rotational arrow should be rotated in a X pattern

Ya. I should have rotated more. I will admit that. Front were like new at 20k. Rears had center totally gone. After rotation I lowered rear pressure in hopes it won't happen again. Now that those rears are on the front my winter stopping traction is not good at all. So I'm in the market for new tires. Was researching on tire rack. Michelin ltx m&s 2 tires seem to review well although I take it all with a grain of salt because reviews vary widely and are all over the place

I really like my Michelin LTX® M/S2 tires
i have not tried them in snow
they sure hold the road when it is wet & at highway speeds
