Yup, the dealership had to replace three of the tires because they apparently could not get them within spec while doing a road force balance. They replaced three tires.. Three. Why not just do all four so they all have the same dang mileage and wear on them. Smh. I like all my tires to have the same mileage and wear. These tires are Michelins, not sure exactly which ones though, probably the cheapest ones. Toyo open country's or some Nitto's will eventually fix this annoyance though Wink

Cheap Michelins is an oxymoron. Theyre one of the best tires you can buy.

@Brett: I had some Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs on my old truck (04 Chevy 3500 Duramax 4x4). I was really happy with them. Also, I went and looked because I was curious exactly what tires I have on my truck, I thought they were michilens, I was wrong. They are actually Continental Crosscontact LX20 Eco plus. It's not that they are bad tires, if you stay on asphalt, but I don't stay on asphalt all the time.

I put some chrome trim on the door edge and bug shield on my truck.  Also put some ford decals on the rear windows.
Oh, I even put a new radio that works in it.

It's alive! It did have a code 12 (knock sensor), but replacing the wire fixed it. Now I need to get it to the exhaust shop to get the exhaust welded back together.
