We put Cooper tires on ours and they really helped with the ride (much smoother now) the trick we were told by our tire store is to have them rotated every 3000 miles along with the oil change. They said because of the suspension on these trucks they have found that to be an answer to the quick wear on tires. I think we have had them rotated 3-4 times already and they still look brand new.

I should rotate mine more often. I think I rotated them 1x in 30k miles, my fronts are slightly more worn than the rears.
#16 of 23 Armarda wheels and tires

My armada tires wore out and I didn't find any tires called Armarda tires. Where do you get them? I have michlin tires on my Armarda now and they are working very well. When I purchased the vehicle it didnt have any tires with Armarda on them, so I should not be in this forum. Disregard my message because since the Armada is only 4 years old the problem of aged tires is not a problem.

How many miles did you have on your tires before replacement? I have 46000 miles on Armada 04 and I was told they need to be replaced. My choice for replacement are Good Year Silent Armor tires that have 50,000 miles warranty.

Update, the cooper tires are now very worn and need replaced. I think they have around 20K miles on them. We had them rotated last week and now there is a terrible shake in the steering wheel when your driving! So we are on the hunt again for some good tires that can hold up to the Armada!

Are you telling us that the Copper tires are so bad you have to replace them just after 20K?
#20 of 23 going with B/stone Alenzas...

I have nearly 30K miles on my '08 and (thankfully) have almost worn out the OE tires. The Contis aren't the worst tire I've ever had, but I just do not love the way they feel or the rebalancing they need every 3-5K miles. I ran 3 sets of Bridgestone Dueler H/L's on my last full sized SUV. The last two sets were the Alenza version. I liked them ALOT. That's what I'm buying for the Armada in a month or so.
#21 of 23 2WD in snow
Sep 08, 2009 (6:03 pm)
I am considering purchasing an '07 Armada with 2WD and am wondering how this vehicle will fare in snow. I am concerned that given the weight of the vehicle and the fact that it is rear-wheel drive that it will problematic in snow and icy conditions. I live in the mid-west so I'll be dealing with a fair amount of winter weather and a few hills, but certainly not any mountainous or rough conditions.
I would also like to know which tires other have found work the best in winter conditions.
Any advice you can give me on this would be greatly appreciated.
#22 of 23 Valve Stems

I am second guessing the dealership who put on a new set of tires for me 3 weeks ago. Three of the valve stems look like the picture with the gasket outside and 1 with no gasket. Any thoughts? I have had nothing but trouble with this dealership and don't trust them. I have one tire that has lost 7 lbs of pressure in 3 weeks. It was checked with no leak found in the tread.

Thoughts? Take to a tire dealership and have them look.
