I was told by the dealer that the stock tires that came on my 2005 Magnum - Continental self-sealing tires - were a real problem. That's why the dealer replaced them at no charge with less than 6,000 miles of wear.
That said, it isn't unusual for stock tires to wear out after 28,000 miles. The tires that came on my previous car - a Saab 9-5 wagon - wore out after 30,000 miles.
You can try the Goodyear tires that Dodge is now putting on the 2006 Magnums.
The pull to the right seems to be a prevalent problem, which your dealer should know about. Check other postings in this forum or on www.dodgeforum.com for more on this problem.

Cooper Tires has their Touring SLE speed rated tires in exact replacement size for the RT 18" wheel. I put them on after my Continentals were toast at 16,800 miles. The difference was like night and day, and the Coopers are more reasonably priced than the Goodyears. I love my RT and the new tires make it better than it was new!!!

Is Dodge repacing the Continentals with a different tire under warranty since this seems to be a common problem? Do you lose the "self-sealing" option if you use a different tire? I Got my '06 in February, and it had the Continentals on it but I wasn't aware they are such a problem.

Some owners have gotten some credit on exchanges, but if it was from Continental they had to put the same tires back on. That was not worth it to me. There was no way I wanted another set of those! They may have been inproved for the 06 cars, so you may not have a problem.

The dealer told me I had to take it up with Continental, We did and they would not do a thing. I replaced the tires (Goodyears. They told me and I checked the tires are not covered under the car waranty,tires have their own (continentals)
How did you get the dealer to replace them?

The Dodge dealer where I bought the car replaced the tires at no cost with Goodyears. They told me the self-sealing Continentals were a major problem. I had a lot of other problems the first four months I owned the car. Since then its run like a dream - problem free.

I recently purchased a dealer's demo 2005 special edition SXT and it came with Goodyears' Integrity tires. Have not had them that long but the car does not pull nor have any other tire related problems. You might try the tire rack website in the area of the consumer survey to check out what other people have written.
