Well my original MT/Rs just rolled over 36k miles and there are a couple of spots where they're worn down to the point of replacing. It sounds like the new design is quieter and better in pretty much all situations, so I'm thinking about buying 4 of these and leaving my original spare for now (never been off the tailgate, didn't think about doing a 5 tire rotation in the beginning... oh well). It sounds like the most important thing is to get a Road Force balance, I have no idea what my local shops have but I would HOPE the Goodyear-branded stores have it. Should I also get an alignment, or wait until there are some miles on the new tires first?
