Are you looking for a mud-terrain or an all-terrain?

Factory tires suck.

10k is too long to go with out rotating them. should be done at every oil change. go to a goodyear store, they will do it for free. i rotate mine every 3k. and you should algin the front end every year whether you think it needs it or not. it takes a beating. everyone has there own likes and dislikes about everything. but, if you don't take care of something, no matter what brand it is, it's not going to last.

Took back a couple weeks later cause still shaking a bit, they said they adjusted the camber (spelling?). Two months later, no shaking but front tires are "feathered" worse than back and one of the back tires is worn to wear bar....need new tires already!! Took to tire specialty store and had Michelin LTX M/S 2.....GREAT tire, better ride than original.

FYI, "Adjustment of wheel alignment alone will seldom cure the problem. Any worn component that connects the wheel to the car (ball joint, wheel bearing, shock absorber, springs, bushings, etc.) can cause this condition. Worn components should be replaced with new ones. The worn tire should be balanced and possibly moved to a different location on the car. Occasionally, wheels that are out of balance will wear like this, but wheel imbalance usually shows up as bald spots between the outside edges and center of the tread."

Showed this to the dealer and they would not back up their service and replace tires.
i HAD THE SAME ISSUE,Dealer said everything was still in line CUPPING and FEATHERING of front tires,i had no shaking.so what i did was looked at every new ram i saw parked and noticed they all was doing this...
IT only went bad to a certian point...

im sure it was just this speciacial desighned tire for the dodge ram for the 1500 to smooth the ride the best it could be... that amount of miles is about all the tire should be safe for for normal wear and tear.I did have the truck looked @ buy n2 other proff. locations and same verdict it the tires not the truck...
