Default Just replaced the original tires to Michelin LTX M/S2

Of all the Mods, this is what I should have done first! Im sure 95% of all us 4th gen Ram owners will agree with, is that the original Goodyear Wrangler HP tires are pure GARBAGE! In fact, the are dangerous in any rain or snow conditions. I just replaced them with a set of Michelin LTX m/s2 tires, and what a diffrence. I was shocked how much the traction, breaking, and ride had improved. I still prob had another 10-15k left in the Goodyears, but they preformed so poorly, I could not pass up a sale on the new tires. Advice to all 4th Gen owners, get new tires! very impressed with the Michelins.

I guess RAM heard the complaints about the Wrangler HPs. My 2013 came with Wrangler SRAs. They are great on water but haven't had them in snow yet.

Great tire change the wranglers after about 5000 had the Michelin LTX for about 45000 still plenty of tread though they took a bit of battering on the windy back a forth to the Mendocino coast. They supposed to good for 70,000 we will see.
