#32 of 40 Survey: Replacement Tires for 2001 LE
Jan 06, 2009 (6:48 pm)
Interested in hearing opinions on replacement tires that the folks here have. The Michelins LTXs M&S have 50k on them, some tread left but replacements will be needed soon. Rotated & balanced every 5k. Elsewhere on this forum I disclosed the horror of a tread separation (Michelin called it a 'driver-error" Run Flat situation, Ha). Aside from that faulty tire which was replaced without question by COSTCO, they have been much better than the OEMs - Dunlops. Smoother, quieter ride - handled better than the Dunlops, But very $$$$.

2007 Path SE 4x4, but almost never use 4 wheel drive. Tires are BF goodrich, 1st one worn out at 30500 miles. Not impressed. Just bought new tire + put brand new, never used spare on back. Problem with new spare, has 4 deep indentations on outside of rubber. Dealer says, caused by sparewheel, clamp. UGH! never seen or heard of such a thing. Dealer says can't do anything aboout it. Only 16 months to go, before give back the lease. Whoopee.

your struts might be worn... but should not be the problem.. i just rolled 105,000 miles and my second set of tires are ok...
i will suggest... setting your PSI doing the white chalk line test... go to smooth paved parking lot..... take a piece of chalk and draw a line across the tire from the inside to the outside... you can do 3 to 8 lines.. then drive a little bit forward and watch to see if line is getting worn even....... if too much psi.. or too little will show ..... edges wear out faster or edges stay even and center of tire is worn ..or lighter .
sounds dumb but .... each truck weighs different... each tire needs to be set according to how much weight is on the tire.... the chalk line test will tell you the exact PSI the tire is asking for..

If you decide to do re-alignment, check the parts. Excessive wear on parts combined with damaged roads or heavy off-road driving will throw off the re-alignment at some point. Also, check your struts for bleeding/corrosion or just a really bouncy ride. Then look at your brakes, if they have heavy wear or deep markings, clean them off and see how they look. Do not just look at the front but also the rear. The downforce when braking puts twice the load of the 2 front tires. So if your struts and brakes are not up to par, you will have issues. I have a PF SE 03 2WD w/ option to use 4WD and have gone through 2 sets of tires (Dunlop and Falken). These are LL TERRAIN. Currently I am on the Falkens. PF's have weight issues that really can not be overcome. It is a heavy vehicle. We all drive ours differently whether casual/aggressive, off-road, towing or combination. What I am going to do is rotate my tires more often to have even wear. Try this with your current or newly purchased tires. Take your LF and move it to the RB, and take your RF to your LB.
