I have a 2004 Mercury Mountaineer with the same problem. I took it to the dealer and was told tit was a design problem. Dealer repaired with no cost to me.

When did they repair it at no cost to you? I'm just wondering if Ford finally realized what was going on and decided to pay now. I wonder if they are reimbursing those who did pay previously?

I am considering buying used 2008 explorer ltd. Vehicle has 18" tires and do not know how they will do in snow compared to 17" tires. Can anyone give me any info on this.

My '06 EB 4WD has 18 inch tires, and other than the cost to replace, I have had no problems with them. The wife hit a curb at about 5,000 and the one tire was close to $200. I'm hoping they have come down some since I'll have to look for a new set in about 10k.
They were gret this winter in snow and ice, and it was a worse than average winter.

this looked like an oversized taurus x... i was hoping the new explorer isn't going to be like this. i saw a photo in car and driver mag of the 2011 explorer and i liked that much better.

Maybe they got their test mules mixed up.

I have a 2007 Mountaineer and it's about ready for new tires. It came with Michelin Cross Terrains and they have been a great tire. I have been told by Michelin that they are being phased out and replaced by the Michelin Latitude Tour. However, you cannot get the Tour in the 235-65-18 size. It is available in the 245-60-18 size which is extremely close in overall dimensions to the 235's and is in fact almost exactly the same overall dimensions as the standard size (18's are optional) 245-65-17's that come on Mountaineer's and Explorer's. Was just wondering if anyone else has opted for the 245-60-18's and if so how do they like them. I have heard very good things about the Latitude Tour but was just wondering if there was a specific reason it didn't come in the optional Explorer and Mountaineer sizes.

I am hoping you can help me as I also have a ford explorer 2006 that has the same problem (you described it well). I bought it used and it has 72k miles. Do you know what they did to fix yours?
